While pacing in the light of a pristine glass foyer, a team member from Sparkling Cleaning Service speaks proudly about a recently serviced home. "Mary and her husband," he explains, "they were elderly, and not in the best position to clean their windows. We removed all the dirt, the water spots, and after we finished, Mary calls me and says, 'I can see!'" That's not to say that Mary had been living with false blindness, but as she elatedly explained to an employee, she'd never seen her windows so clean.
This type of phone call is what owners Fernando Moreno and his wife, Sandra Gomez, wanted from their business from the beginning: to have strong personal relationships with clients—relationships built on thorough and fair service. The couple earned their business stripes as daycare owners, but decided to start Sparkling Cleaning Service in order to provide even more working opportunities for others––relatives included.
A family owned and operated business, one day the team of relatives sat down and sorted out the details of the company's vision. They decided to offer gutter cleaning, pressure washing, and window cleaning. They decided that they would use eco-friendly products.

We want the customers to see that we can be trusted."
Drill bits twist, measuring tape unfurls, and saws chomp through two-by-fours in ACE Hardware, where shelves dangle with scores of tools and other home-improvement essentials.

Outside, bags of seed and compost join charcoal grills to brighten backyard celebrations as rolling hand trucks heft heavy lumber purchases or prefab doghouses for socialite canines. Tools, electrical tape, and other handyman essentials round out each location's array of fixative and creative supplies.
