Mrs. Clean By Ann Nusbaum Mrs. Clean (aka Sandra Burton) has been trying to clean up the town ever since she came to Pahrump, to the town when there were only 4,000-5,000 residents, but waited until September 1996 to start. Sandy likes Pahrump, enjoys the personal interaction with her customers and was tired of casino work. She now has 3 employees and they all work together as a team 25-35 hours, or as needed, per week. Mrs. Clean has "flexible" schedul- ing for her clients and her employees. She plans to ex- pand her business and have 5 or 6 crews each working 40 hours e, week. Sandy hires local people, and gives every- one willing to work a fair chance. Mrs. Clean is very particular in her work. Jobs have to &apos;Paht'ump Vafiey Gazette l'hursdayl April 3' 1997 13 the coils. Her crew even does minor repair work around houses they service. Sandy has had a lot of experience doing this; she came from a large family and learned to be self-reliant. If any of her customers are unhappy for whatever reason, Sandy encourages them to contact her personally. She will correct any mistakes made by her crew and do extra work to make up for any inconvenience to her customers. If any of Mrs. Clean's customers have problems and need assistance, Sandy will make arrangements for a payment plan for them. Sandy also has senior discounts for people over 60 years of age. She charges by the square foot, not by the hour. That usually is less expensive for the customer and Sandy's rates are already low. Mrs. Clean takes the time to explain her work to her customers- why she's doing a job a certain way and the steps involved. She tells her clients any helpful hints she thinks they could use. When her customers talk to her about their lives, Sandy t I .::. :$ J Re-Bar- 3/8", I12", 518" 'JR II[i] StaRes- Wood 8{ steel Amhor Botts. il 114 wo Gloves, Tie Wire 8t Mesh [.:II I[ (702) 727-6257 II 3700 W.

Start with no running or horseplay near the pool, and only plastic--never glass-- containers in the area. 3Keep a cordless phone poolside for dialing 9-1-1 and post CPR and safety in- structions 4.Prepare for emergen- cies. A long pole, a life ring with a'throwing line, and a first-aid kit should be nearby. Get CPR and first-aid train- ing. 5.Completely fence your pool, not just your property line, with a fence at least five feet high and position latches out of reach of chil- dren. 6.When first entering the water, never dive! Enter feet first to be safe and dive only in water that you KNOW is deep. 7.Always remove your pool cover completely. If it is left partially in place, chil- dren or adults may become entrapped. 8Keep pool chemicals out of reach of children and in a locked storage area. 9.Never enter a pool or spa when under the influ- ence of alcohol or drugs. 10. Keep toys away from the pool. A child who is playing with toys could fall into the water. Above all, supervise your child!
