BILLINGS - You often hear, 'A clean home is a happy home.' That's why one Billings business is helping women going through cancer treatment.
For many, a clean home is something taken for granted. But, it's more than just a chore for Stephanie Gold and Melinda Bachini who have gone through cancer treatment.
"Having to do chemo when you have a five-year-old and a one-year-old it has been hard. Thank goodness I didn't get too sick from it, but I was able to continue with my daily activities. But, it's a change in your lifestyle for sure," Stephanie said.
"It was just hard. It was hard to even get out of bed when you are cooking and cleaning and all of that good stuff." Melinda said.
Stephanie and Melinda have received free housekeeping from Elite Home Services in Billings. Stephanie Gold said she jumped at the chance when they offered to clean her home once a month for four months.
"It just takes a huge burden off you, and you don't have to worry about it. You can spend time with your family. They always say cleaning your house with kids is like brushing your teeth while eating oreos, It just helps out so much. i just can't stress that enough," Stephanie said.
Elite Home Services Owner, Scott Smith, said it feels great to help families in need.
"It's nice to be able to go into their homes and take care of cleaning when we know it's not something they are able to do. It's something we're really good at, and we just love doing it. It helps out the community," Smith said.
Smith said they partnered with the non-profit group 'cleaning for a reason' in 2011. He said the company has helped eight families in need, and he said he looks forward to helping even more. Smith said the company helps two people at a time.
