After handing off household duties to her stepdaughters in order to teach them the responsibilities of maintaining a home, Stephanie Howard longed for the feel of a sudsy sponge in her hand rather than relishing the break. Thus, she opened The Dusty Daisy Green Cleaning Service, and along with her insured and bonded crew including twin sisters Heather Smith and Holly Smith, she scrubs the gunk from inside clients' bathtubs, mops floors till they shine, and ousts dust bunnies from underneath beds, among other cleaning services. The team also uses eco-friendly cleaning products to ensure services are gentle on pets and kids, handling regularly scheduled cleaning sessions as well as one-off appointments before or after events or for move-in or move-out cleaning.
