Hello Cascade customers! One of our goals this coming year as a family-owned and operated small business, is to be open and share our journey with our customers. In that spirit, here is a look back at our 2016:
- We endured a record-setting rain streak (15 consecutive days of measurable rain!) that heavily impacted our pressure washing services in Northern Virginia. We made it through and thankfully had very understanding customers. Previous rain streaks were in 1989 and 1972.
- We moved! Not far, from Gainesville, VA to Warrenton, VA and absolutely adore this town. We are still providing pressure washing services in Northern Virginia and all the cities/towns included in the NOVA area. (This picture is a view from our own deck! It's going to be a big project but we can't wait to transform and breathe new life into both the fence and deck with a pressure wash and stain. We are still mulling over the right stain product and color and look forward to sharing the transformation with you in a future post.)
- Smack in the middle of our busy season, we decided in faith to take a full week off and travel to Bolivia with Compassion International and our church, Monterey Church. It was our first short-term mission trip. Randy and I learned so much and grew in our personal faith and perspective of what is important. We also gained a new family member through Compassion child sponsorship of a wonderful 4-year old boy. Here are some pictures of Randy and I during "Fun Day", where we were able to spend an entire day at a fun park with Abel, his brothers and mother. We were blown away by seeing first-hand the real impact of child sponsorship and how Compassion partners with the local churches to truly impact the local community. It truly changes lives.
- We served nearly 500 customers in Northern Virginia providing carpet cleaning, deck restoration services (deck pressure washing and staining) and house pressure washing in Ashburn, Leesburg and throughout Loudoun County, Warrenton, Gainesville / Haymarket / Bristow, througout Fairfax County (Chantilly, Centreville, Fairfax, Oakton, Herndon) and down the 95 corridor (Springfield, Woodbridge, Lorton, Stafford). It was busy - and we are thankful!
