PASO ROBLES — Leticia’s First Class Cleaning Inc., a Paso Robles-based residential and commercial cleaning service for San Luis Obispo County, recently gave back to the community by donating 12 cleaning hours to Central Coast individuals battling cancer.
As debilitating as it is, cancer is more often than not inconvenient for a handful of reasons. Not only are there chronic physical symptoms and side effects, but those diagnosed are often unprepared — mentally, physically and emotionally — and need help managing and maintaining their houses and other property during the long road ahead of treatment and therapy.
The nonprofit program, called Cleaning for a Reason, “lets those battling disease and going through treatment to get their house cleaned for free,” said Jennifer Fanning, who recently participated in the program. “I got on the list months ago, but there were no companies in our area willing to do it. (Then) I got a notice a few weeks ago saying that Leticia’s would.”
Leticia’s First Class Cleaning Inc., which has provided cleaning services for 19 years on the Central Coast, is just one of 1,200 nationwide maid services that hopes to alleviate the financial burden placed on cancer patients who are unable to tend to their home.
Owner Leticia Gomez has partnered with the nonprofit for the past three years and has donated free house cleaning services to two individuals this year, including Fanning.
“I like to help sick people,” Gomez said. “(I believe) our communities stay strong when we help one another.”
Gomez, who trains all her employees herself, encourages them to not only clean homes, but also to provide their customers with great attention to detail and satisfaction that she believes they deserve. She said this attention to their clientele’s needs is the main reason for their success.
While Leticia’s First Class Cleaning Inc. currently serves more than 85 homes and business throughout the Central Coast, Gomez said she would like to continue helping more cancer survivors in the area.
Fanning said she was thankful for finding a local cleaning company that works with Cleaning for a Reason and looks forward to her next two scheduled cleanings.
