WHO IS ASK CINDY?
"I do this in a fun way,
and I don't come with judgment."
I still remember the enthusiasm that came through my friend and colleague Linda Lombroso's story on Cindy Inman last year. Through her company, Ask Cindy, Inc., Cindy offers super-detailed home (and commercial) cleaning services.
Not the most exciting thing to shop for, to be sure, but even I have to admit it is a necessity. Cindy Inman told me that people are overwhelmed by the idea of a large cleaning project. "I am there for everyone because it can be overwhelming," she said.
Her site is full of tips and ideas, things she also offers through seminars. She was telling me that she's now expanding to work with some appliance stores and companies to offer presentations to shoppers. After all, if you're going to invest in a fancy new appliance, you want to be sure and keep it clean, right?
Throughout the process Cindy tries to keep it simple. She mentioned that giant Martha Stewart book on housekeeping, for example."It is a very good encyclopedia for me", she said with a laugh. But it is not the way she would offer advice: "I try to do it in a very fun way. I try to do it in a way that will limit the steps to success."
Check out Cindy Inman's site, especially if you're curious on how to keep all those lovely things you buy in like-new condition. And I have to warn the world's restaurants and restrooms: You just might be her next target. "The world is dirty", Inman said. It really annoys my senses and sensibilities.
