Caravel Cleaning Company Keeping Cancer Patients’ Homes Shipshape


By Lucy Lee

Oxnard, CA – August 31, 2021 – Caravel Cleaning Company has teamed up with Cleaning for a Reason, a nonprofit providing free house cleaning to cancer patients throughout the United States and Canada. Raini Steffen, President, and CEO of Caravel Cleaning, has a passion for changing lives one home at a time and is eager to do exactly that for cancer patients.

“My goal is to build a company that is involved and gives back to our community,” said Steffen. “While I volunteer with many local organizations, I find partnering with Cleaning for a Reason especially gratifying. Cancer patients are truly in need of a clean, safe, healthy home as they are often immune compromised, and both physically and emotionally drained from treatments. Our cleaning crew loves supporting cancer patients with the gift of a clean home. Our reward is knowing that we are making a difference and seeing how touched and grateful these patients truly are.”

Through partnership with Cleaning for a Reason, Caravel Cleaning Company supports two cancer patients’ homes each month for two consecutive months free of charge. This will be an ongoing service to cancer patients residing in Camarillo, Oxnard, Port Hueneme, and Ventura.
