Greenwood, IN – May 26, 2020 – The Cleaning Authority of Indianapolis South has been donating cleaning services to local cancer patients for the past two years through their partnership with nonprofit Cleaning for a Reason. Since 2018, The Cleaning Authority of Indianapolis South has helped six cancer patients with a donated value of $1,700 in cleanings.

Owners Mike and Michelle Weintz want to bring heightened awareness of the cause to the area during Cleaning for a Reason Week, April 18-24. The goal is to help more households battling any type of cancer to receive the gift of a clean home.

“Cleaning for a Reason gives us the opportunity to provide a positive impact on the world, specifically to those families waging a fight against cancer,” said Michael Weintz. “One of our four core values is ‘we make a difference in our community,’ and Cleaning for a Reason allows us to do just that.  Our employees love participating in this program and doing what they do best to help cancer patients in their hour of need.”

Said Michelle Weintz, “We use eco-friendly cleaning products, but, in light of the COVID-19 situation, have adjusted cleaning methods to include EPA-registered disinfectants. We have also put in place CDC-advised protocols, including wearing masks and gloves, handwashing between tasks, cleaning and disinfecting high touch areas, and practicing social distancing in the home during cleanings.”

Through partnership with Cleaning for a Reason, The Cleaning Authority of Indianapolis South assists cancer patients by cleaning two homes per month for two consecutive months free of charge. This will be an ongoing service to cancer patients residing in Plainfield and the Southern portion of Indianapolis.
