Suds N Such Cleaning Services In York County Rebounds After Temporary Closure

YORK-Abraham Fennell and his wife Brenda Alexander opened Suds N Such Cleaning Services five years ago as a home-based business enterprise. The entrepreneurs are now running the company from 5336 George Washington Memorial Highway, Suite E, which is also the location of their Grafton Pack and Mail shipping and shredding company in Washington Square Shopping Center.

Both businesses were at a standstill due to the covid19 pandemic and mandatory shutdowns in March 2020. Then, an unforeseen accident caused another delay in reopening their cleaning and shipping businesses.

While Fennell was holding a gathering at his home on July 4, 2020, he broke his tibia and fibula bones after falling down some steps. “I was in the hospital for over a month and then did rebab for about six months,” said Fennell. “I was homebound for about six months in a wheelchair after that.”

Fennell said that being homebound during the long recovery period was depressing but found a modern way to lift his spirits. “I became very good friends with YouTube and started investing a lot of time in spiritual and motivational speeches,” said Fennell. “I also became acquainted with DoorDash, and we were using that service about three or four times a week during my recovery.”

Fully healed, Fennell re-opened both of his businesses in December 2021. While business with the authorized FedEx packing and shipping company is relatively slow, Suds N Such is picking up speed. “I’m thankful people are reaching out for cleaning services again,” Fennell said.

Suds N Such offers commercial and residential cleaning. Services offered include disinfection, carpet cleaning, exterior and interior window cleaning, floor stripping, and waxing and buffing as well as janitorial services.

The New Local News Model

On July 1, we started a new way to pay for news. Yes, we want you to subscribe, but we know nobody subscribes to every site they visit just because there's a paywall.

So if you don't want to subscribe (even at the low price of $39.99 for a year), you can pay for access to individual articles. Or just buy a 24-hour pass, as if you were buying a single copy of a newspaper. We use a new payment service called Transact, which lets you pay for individual articles in as little as three seconds. And you will get $3 in credit when you sign up (just an email address, no credit card required), which will let you pay for at least 20 articles.

This is new for everyone, so we're going to ease you into this. Initially, there won't be many articles that you have to pay for. Short ones will always be free. And even the longer stories will let you read the first half or so for free. We'd love to hear what you think, so send us a note at
