Goldstar Cleaning Services is offering the community a chance to award a local family or individual with a top to bottom house clean. The entire staff of the local cleaning company will spend a day in an Elk Valley home as part of their Goldstar Extreme Makeover: Clean Home Edition contest.

“What we’re looking for is nominations form the community for either families, or an individual, or someone that they know that they feel could use a helping hand in their house,” said Goldstar Cleaning Services Owner, Jill Barclay. “Someone who a top to bottom clean would really make a difference in their day, and life.”

Goldstar services residential and vacation homes in Fernie, as well as doing commercial and janitorial work all over the Elk Valley. “Our crews generally work in teams of two and some work individually, and we’re operating seven days a week in day shifts and night shifts, so there’s a lot of time that our crews are working by themselves and we don’t often get everybody together,” explained Barclay. “We thought this was a great way that we as a company could do something with all of our employees together.”

She went on to say, “We also do work with Cleaning for a Reason Foundation, which provides cleaning to women that are going through cancer treatment. Just through that you start to identify that there’s definitely people here within the community that are dealing with some pressures in life, but they’re still managing to contribute to the community in itself. So we thought how can we align that with what we do?”

Goldstar has already received several nominations, including a few names that have come up more than once. Barclay remarked, “Most of our nominees right now tend to be families that are either facing some kind of health issue, or we’ve also seen some nominations for people that are trying to balance new businesses, or new project initiatives, and their family.”

Nominations will close on October 31, and on November 13, Goldstar Cleaning will take over the lucky winner’s home to make sure it’s sparkling. For more information on the contest visit the Goldstar Cleaning Services Facebook page.
