Mike and Lorrie Lewis, Kootenai, are the owners of SuperSuds Carpet & Upholstery Cleaning, and as business owners, they’ve been brainstorming ways to help their community. What they came up with will be a steam clean benefit to their low income elderly North Idaho neighbors between Athol and the Canadian border.
With COVID-19 making it more difficult for everyone, and especially the elderly, to get out, having a clean home is a big boost to anyone’s morale, and Mike, who also works at Selkirk Press, running SuperSuds after hours and on weekends, and Lorrie, a two-time cancer survivor, are offering three people or couples a free professional carpet cleaning of up to three rooms and a general cleaning.
“If this is something you need but cannot afford,” Mike said, “please reach out so we can help you.”
What sealed the idea of making the offer, which they challenge other professional cleaners to offer as well, came in the parking lot of the Sandpoint Yoke’s. An elderly woman in her 80s, seeing the Supersuds art on the car, approached Lorrie, asking prices.
From all the rooms to two rooms and a hallway to just the hallway, and appearing more crestfallen with each reduction, Lorrie recognized that the woman desperately needed the cleaning, but on a fixed income, just couldn’t afford the outlay.
Discussing it that evening, both recognized that the elderly, being among the most susceptible to COVID-19, would also gain a health benefit, as a steam clean kills the virus.
Licensed, certified and insured, Mike and Lorrie’s SuperSuds offers a full line of cleaning services, both commercial and residential.
To find out more or to request a free cleaning for yourself or for an elderly friend or loved one, call Mike at (208) 217-2260, or Lorrie at (208) 217-1180.
