Brett Bailey, owner of Bailey Window Cleaning, LOVES what he does! Eight years ago his wife had a company that did construction cleanup for developers and Brett had a construction company. His wife was overwhelmed with work so Brett would go help her, often getting stuck cleaning the windows. In 2008 Brett had to close his construction company as several developers went upside down and he lost a half million overnight. By the time it was all said and done he had $108 in his pocket and six mouths to feed. He took that $108 and went to Home Depot where he bought window washing equipment. Next, he found a 4' x 4' sign and painted "Will clean windows." He, LITERALLY, sat on the corner waiting for people to hire him and that's how he got started. "I did it out of the necessity at first because I had to eat, but then I fell in love with it. Who knew!"
Brett cleans (windows & pressure washes) the majority of the historical homes in Redlands because he's that good! One of the highlights is to get to know each customer-- he loves their stories! He is a father of four - ages 24-28 and has five grandkids - ages newborn-6. Being a grandpa is one of his biggest joys in life.
His loves to hike and backpack which led him to volunteer for the San Bernardino Sherriff's Search & Rescue Team. Brett loves helping people and wrote this:
NOTE: A recent rescue Brett conducted was for owner of La Volata Pizzeria who was hiking and broke her leg. Brett carried her down the hill.
"We are your neighbors and coworkers but you don’t know our names.
You see us around town, yet you don’t recognize our face.
You see us on the news, but don’t realize we are standing right next to you.
“We train so others may live” is a motto that we live by.
When your loved ones are lost or hurt, we stop our daily lives to run to your aid.
When we leave our loved ones to help you, we can hear their prayers for our protection.
When we set out to go to your loved ones aid, we become the most important people in your life.
We don’t get paid for what we do, but when we reunite you with your loved ones and see the smile on your face and the tears in your eyes, we feel like we have been paid in full.
At the end of the day, you shake our hands and maybe even give us a hug and we know that tomorrow, you won’t recognize our face….. And that’s OK with us.
We know who we are….we are the proud members of the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Search and Rescue Team."
