South Coast Cleaning Services
By Annette Langenstein, Staff Writer 

I spoke with Katie Forrester, owner of South Coast Cleaning Services, which has been open since November of 2014. Katie is no stranger to running a business in Coos County; she’s owned Harmony Home Care, an in-home care agency employing from 35-40 people, for 10 years. Harmony Home Care provides personal care, some housecleaning, meal preparation, rides to appointments and shopping, laundry services, bill paying and medication reminders for both ambulatory and non-ambulatory people. They have a registered nurse on staff, bill insurance companies, and no contract is required.

Personal care is what Harmony Home Care is all about, but “We get a lot of people calling up who think we also clean houses at Harmony Home Care, and I don’t want to send my trained caregivers to do housekeeping, so I decided to start my own housekeeping business: South Coast Cleaning Services,” said Katie. “We do residential and commercial cleaning, providing both maids and janitors. Our office is in the Harmony Home Care office at 682 West Anderson in Coos Bay, on the corner of 7th and Anderson in the Anderson Plaza building.” 

South Coast Cleaning Services provides basic housecleaning, kitchen and bath cleaning, dusting, mopping and vacuuming.
South Coast Cleaning Services provides basic housecleaning, kitchen and bath cleaning, dusting, mopping and vacuuming. More extensive cleaning such as appliances, windows and carpets are billed at an additional charge. “Everybody’s situation is different, so we meet with customers for a free consultation and find out their needs. There’s no contract involved, and our employees at both my businesses are screened, trained, have had a criminal background check and are covered under our insurance, including workman’s compensation,”said Katie. “We have a two hour minimum per job, and we’ll be happy to give people quotes based on what they need our services for.”

 I asked Katie what she would like the Shopper readers to know about her business ventures.
“As a dedicated member of our community, I strive to provide the best service, and hire the most qualified, dependable employees, that I can. I start people at a wage that’s higher than the competition, give Christmas and birthday bonuses, and I try to be really good to my employees because I want them to stay with me, and I want my clients to be satisfied. I have an excellent reputation in Coos County, and will gladly give potential clients a list of referrals.”

   So if you’re looking for a reputable cleaning service that’s available weekends, holidays, or during whatever hours you need, give South Coast Cleaning Services a call at 541-290-8211. Or stop by their office and meet Lonni, the assistant manager, Peggy the staff coordinator, or Cathy, their bookkeeper. They’re members of the Bay Area Chamber of Commerce and Rotary and are involved in our community, with a proven track record of amazing service!
