About GreenWay Carpet Cleaning Redding
My name is Charlie King. I’ve been in the cleaning business for over a decade, and I’m proud to say I’m a 3rd generation cleaner. A home is where you hang your hat, it’s where the heart is.
Home is where your story begins.
Mine starts in a sunny, vibrant city in the San Joaquin Valley, California. Birds sang, children swam, popsicles melted. Early years were full of excitement, though I hardly remember the small apartment we lived in. Home to me was more than that. Like, the tall apartment gates, which didn’t keep people out so much as form the boundaries of endless games of hide n’ seek, or the more questionable, ‘Who can slip though before getting smooshed?’
When I got a little older, we moved to a home in the majestic Pacific Northwest. Sure, the winters were longer, and ice storms meant power outages and weekends spent shoveling the driveway. But most of all I remember the snowball fights, sledding down golf course driving ranges and summers spent lying by the lake.
I now call Redding CA my home, and now that my daps of snowball fights are largely over, I find fun in contributing to the beautification and restoration of my neighbor’s homes and businesses. I watch with admiration, the hard work and determination that defines our residents. My business has been an adventure and has helped me to realize the dream of being my own boss. And now, my home is more important than it’s ever been, since I don’t leave my work behind in an office building. I have learned how to organize, prioritize and keep things tidy. This keeps my home in accord with my happiness.
Through my adventures I’ve come to realize how important the home is. Not the name of the suburb, the latest valuation, or the size of the bathtubs, but the ‘meat and potatoes’ as I call them. Who is cooking dinner? What is for dinner? Who is waiting for me when I get home from work, and how do I feel when I step through the door? A home is where you escape from the rest of the world, a sanctuary. I can breathe a sigh of relief upon opening the door, having made it through another day ‘out there’.
We all need a place to think fondly of, and I love to make others enjoy their homes in that way.
Does a clean, calm home float your boat? Or perhaps you prefer eclectic decorations, and four legs and a thumping tail waiting behind the front door. I like to encourage families to think of their home as an oasis from the hot desert sands, a place to create whatever it is they desire. Most of the things that irk you when you come home are completely avoidable and easily fixed, so let us take care of the irritant, and create a peaceful and happy place for you to begin, and live, your story.
