Cryptic Cleaning Woman

dustingLast weekend I met a woman at a bar who apparently works for a cleaning service in Salt Lake City. The two of us were sitting at the bar with a stool between us when she leaned over and whispered in my ear, “I am concerned about reducing my carbon footprint.”

Naturally I was a little taken aback and asked her what she meant by this.

She responded with something to the effect that cleaning homes actually helps the environment and that improving the cleaning process is something people can feel better about.

I was not really sure what she was talking about but she happened to be pretty so I nodded as if I agreed with her.

She kept talking. “When we clean,” she said, “we use a unique ‘Truly Green’ cleaning system, improving our clients’ safety and health by improving air quality and maintaining high cleanliness standards. We want your family and pets—not to mention our cleaning staff, not only to live longer, but better. Our company fully commits itself to sustainable practices within the green cleaning industry.”

“That’s great,” I told her wondering if she was simply making conversation or giving me a sales pitch.

“Many people are aware that homes can make cause illness,” she told me. “Even if a home does not specifically have mold or require a deep cleaning, a thorough cleaning will always have a positive effect.”

I told her that I agreed with her pointing out that whenever I clean my apartment I feel better.

She then said, “We offer steam cleaning, deep cleaning, regular services, spring and seasonal cleaning, laundry, housekeeping, and cleaning before a big move and we do it all in the healthiest way possible.”

“That’s great,” I responded not exactly sure about the best way to respond to her. She smiled, got up from her stool and walked out of the bar. I never saw her again.
