Melissa Hammer

BUT it wasn’t always as easy as calling Girls Gone Green to find a great cleaner in the area.

As with many of the best ideas this one was  born out of a bottle of red wine, and an old-fashioned gab session.  Shocking we know, but that’s how it happened.  Just a couple of girlfriends sharing their housewifely woes. Seems Melissa had been having a heck of a time finding and keeping a reliable housekeeper so yet again she was on the hunt.

Now her girlfriend, being a recent runaway from the big city and an enthusiastic business owner herself thought”Really, how hard can this be? ” and so she started asking a few questions about where her friend had been finding her not so great cleaners. Turned out Melissa had been hiring individuals through local ad postings.

Melissa had some crazy stories but the show stopper was the Facebooking cleaner…yes, you read right! She came home to find this one cleaner sitting at her desk Facebooking. Shocked though not entirely surprised her city-minded friend suggested “Why don’t you call a “cleaning agency”?  Then you don’t have to deal with any of that…they’ll take care of it.”

An agency?!  Well sure, that was a great solution…IF there had been one in town. And the rest as they say, is history.

A clean home is a happy home. Kaity learned early on a life with her dogs in the house meant a life of constant cleaning. She has always been conscientious about what products she used in her home, how they effected her health, her pets health and the environment. Girls Gone Green Kelowna bloomed and presented the perfect opportunity to help others keep a clean home, while using environmentally friendly cleaning products.

She has always been interested in their health and well-being, and most of all helping to strengthen the bond between pets and their people.
