2013 Year In Review – THANK YOU!

Valued Customer:

It has been an amazing first year at Top-Notch Cleaning and I wanted to take a moment to update you on our growth as a company and most importantly personally THANK YOU.

Last New Year I was busy trying to find an office and figure out how to write a business plan. In February, Top-Notch had only three employees (counting me) and one company vehicle. Thanks to our valued Customers, Top-Notch Cleaning now employs twenty hardworking, dedicated and local individuals and has paid over $40,000 in local, state and federal taxes.

Top-Notch Cleaning proudly announced in November the Mother’s Touch Cleaning program. Any individual currently battling cancer is eligible for one free cleaning. The only thing we ask is that the recipient live within thirty minutes of the St. Clairsville, OH area. It is very fulfilling to be giving back to the community in such a meaningful way.

I would be mistaken to not thank our valued Customers. We typically send out five cleaning crews a day to do our residential clients. Top-Notch cleans hundreds of local homes each month and I want to THANK YOU for allowing us into your home.

Our commercial Customers are the back bone of our business and we have had the pleasure to work with many prominent and well respected local businesses. I’m sure to miss someone but I want to name a few: AAA Homes, Briarcliff Apartments, Citizens Bank, Comcast, Dr. Sara Lancione, Elm Grove Dodge, Holy Family Daycare, Ohio Valley Guidance, Paloma Offices, Pipeline Services, Purple Land Office, St. Clairsville City, Quality Carriers and Wayne Homes. THANK YOU for giving the “new kid” in town a chance to serve you.

I can’t wait to see what 2014 has in store for Top-Notch Cleaning but with our staff and you are valued clients it should be a great ride.

THANK YOU & Happy New Year,

Austin A. Straub

ST. CLAIRSVILLE – In one way or another, everyone has been affect by cancer, whether it be through you or a loved one. In between all of the doctors visit and treatments, little things like cleaning your house tends to fall through the cracks. That is why Top Notch Cleaning is offer a free cleaning to anyone whose family member or even themselves have cancer.

“The Mother’s Touch program is something I have had in mind ever since we were opening the business. My Mother, Denise, passed away when I was young, only about seven or eight years old from cancer,” said Austin Straub, Owner of Top Notch Cleaning. “We have a staff member whose family member is currently battling a form of cancer. Everyone has been affected by cancer in some way and I just know it is a need that is out there.”A Mothers Touch

The free cleaning will be down by one of Top Notch Cleaning 20 employees. Those who do get the free cleaning are not obiligated to use Top Notch Cleaning in the future. If the recipient or their family would like a cleaning in the future, Top Notch will make it as affordable as possible. All that they ask is that the residence be within a 30 mile radius of St. Clairsville and to be flexible when it comes to the scheduling. They plan on doing one or two free cleanings a week.

Top Notch employees will wear Top Notch polos with either black pants or khakis and will have an HHR with the logo on the side. The free cleaning will include high and low dusting, floors, sinks and counter tops and making the beds, doing dishes and taking out the trash.

“When you are going through Chemo and different treatments for cancer or when you are a family member driving back and forth and helping someone through that, the last thing that is on your mind is cleaning and with the holidays coming up, it can help take a burden off,” said Straub. “If we can help (ease that burden) with a free cleaning then we are doing our job and serving the purpose of The Mother’s Touch program and that is where I got the name, obviously, is in honor of my mother.”

Top Notch Cleaning has been open less than a year and currently has 20 employees. They have five day crews with a couple evening shifts. More information can be found on their website www.tnclean.com.
