I have a cleaning biz and the last one is the one that was looked at.
Please take note that I'm not a artist and that no one seemed to like the old maid.;o)
Thank you for your time and hope you all have a good week.

I strained and strained but could not glean, what the ovate shape and splat might mean. I beg your indulgence, if only for a moment, to explain your intent and allay my torment.

Ok as I said I am not artist..
I think maybe I should give it up. The old maid- no one had a problem understanding- no one liked it.
The oval who knows, I just used it because I liked it. The splashes (haha) was supposed to be an implied feather duster. Now you know why I never comment on others work. Oh well, everyone can be great at everything. And I received a comment anyhow. I just didnít want the same old dustpan or mop. But I guess my work isnít exactly high tech and my logo doesnít have to be either. Maybe it just gets my goat because Iím a perfectionist in my work. Now I know what line to stay out of;o)

I don't know what others have said in objection to your line drawing and text logo, but it strikes me as just fine; clean and tidy, a great image for your business. I'd get rid of the horizontal bars that are above and below your logo on the site, but I'm not sure I'd change the logo or the catch phrase beneath it. If you think it needs a little color, it wouldn't hurt to pursue that option. Nice site; just the right amount of information and it has good features and functionality.

Thanks for the advice. That means I'm finished.;o) The shame of it all is that I like goofing off with the site, but finding the time is next to impossible. I liked the first one but it did receive some bad reviews and Iím no expert. I tried taking out the lines as you suggested. It seems like something is missing now. So what do you think?
Again TQ for the insight.

You are on the right track.
The font you choose is widely used - and gives off the impression of medicore. Try a bolder font with more punch. Something that says 'logo' as opposed to 'header'. Your visual element is too detailed to have high impact. If you can eliminate all but the core lines, and integrate it with your text, your logo will look much more solid. Try playing with your type more. Put emphasis on the most important word and decrease the size of the others. Try stacking your text to get away from the horizontal 'banner' feel.
Best of luck,
