Hi there,
very nice colors, but your home pages doesn't really go into what you offer too much. It has a tutorial on how to clean. You want them to hire you, not clean themselves
Also, when i go to the other pages, this bar pops up with tweet and facebook options. Not sure what that is for, but it isn't very professional looking.
Once you go to the other pages, there is no button to get back to the home page. That is a must. People like to go back to the beginning.

I recommend adding your services and your service area to your home page as well as your phone number and email address in big font so that it is easy to find.

This is the pertinent information people are looking for. Remember, the people who are hiring you are pressed for time. They don't want to read a bunch of text, so the simpler the better.

Good luck!
Stacy

Way off the mark

Sorry mate but you need some serious work done to your website.
Thinking as a prospect I would never hire your services.
Free wordpress template, the social widget is very intrusive (not in the right place).
I recommend you seek professional help to make your website look more professional.
Let me know if you need any help I can recommend a couple of web design companies that would revamp your website at a low cost.

Office Cleaning London - Total Clean provide competitively priced office cleaning in London, also commercial cleaning and office cleaning services London, London city and W1.

what is the calendar there for? it's a bit basic no pictures. add some to brighten it up. i'd remove the bit after the contact form as it wont make sense to most if not all visitors. the title should be Pam and a Bucket. the A should not be a capital and the & should be wirtten out. i like the name as it's personal

It's a good start, but you need some content! I'd work hard in your free time to add some nice content throughout your site and some good keywords that describe your services. There are a lot of good, free resources on Search Engine Optimization (SEO) that you could begin to read to understand more of what I am referring to. Your site will never be seen unless you directly point someone to it unless you work on your SEO and getting your site to the first few pages of the search engines.

Good Luck and if you need some advice or some help, please let me know.

Also, one of the first things you should do is change your signature line here at cleaningtalk.com. Do something like this:

Office Cleaning in Kent County Michigan
House Cleaning in Kent County Michigan

The key is to use your keywords as a link to your site. This will create what is called a back link and will drive more traffic to your site and help you greatly in the search engines.

Try to put some photos and videos in the site. Otherwise it looks fine.

Like already mentioned, get some content and or pictures on your site before you start putting your website out for the world to see. A poorly done website could be the same as using toilet paper as your business card.

That's probably the best analogy i've ever come up with!

I've done several sites before and the one thing I've noticed with messing w/these sites is, unique, and REAL photos will always win over anything else.

GL!
