About the business
I appreciate your valuable time in seeking a professional housekeeper for your home management needs. My name is Mary M,. and I have a proven track record of excellent references from wonderful clients. My experience extends over 20 years in real estate property maintenance, corporate offices that require more than the usual cleaning, and individuals who need a multi-talented housekeeper. In addition to the actual cleaning of the house, I also do the grocery shopping, cooking, laundry, ironing, deal with contractors, coordinate caterers, make appointments with (then supervise) service companies, and a myriad of other services.
EXAMPLE: My client was stricken with a brain aneurysm and hospitalized two weeks, before her daughter's out-of-state wedding. I coordinated arrangements, with her two wedding planners, dealt with the hotel in Cabo San Lucas, made airline reservations, had the bridal dresses sent to Mexico from Chicago, etc. Henceforth, emergencies such as broken water pipes do not excite me....
In 2009, I became a state-licensed Certified Nurse Assistant, a member of the Family Care Safety Registry (FCSR---Jefferson City), and contracted with a premier Kansas City Healthcare Staffing Agency.... This Agency specializes in Hospital, Rehabilitation, Assisted Living, Hospice, and, Long Term Care..... All pertinent referrals can be verified, and are available, upon request.... Background checks are welcome, and encouraged.....
NOTE: Although one cannot represent oneself as a CNA, outside the auspices of the Missouri Department of Senior Services, the healthcare knowledge, and professional conduct is beneficial in the private sector....

Ratings & Reviews
Thank you Mary!
She has excellent communication skills and is willing to be flexible to meet sudden changes in schedules.
We love Mary!
Thank you, so much....
I live in Florida, but have purchased a luxury condominium on the Country Club Plaza. My brother wants a trustworthy business partner, so I will be traveling, between the two states. It will be a headache.
Staff is always a problem, especially for absentee employers. Such poor quality.
Mary Music, a housekeeper and healthcare worker was the recommended by our wonderful concierge.
She cares for an elderly neighbor, in my new resident building. This neighbor is very particular, keeps various staff, so her staff would be exemplary.
Madame Music is a charming woman, and requires little guidance, and no watching. In healthcare, she passes all background checks. And, no marks against her at the Better Business Bureau. On addition, she carrys a bond, and insurance.
This is important to me, because she has access to substantial household money, two of my credit cards, and must pay the workman remodeling my new Kansas City home.
I expect all receipts, and a weekly report. I want problems addressed, because being very busy.
She is chic, very good at her job, and I have no Kansas City worries.
Very happy, so far.
This is from Francoise Pickard
Merci de votre confiance et de cette merveilleuse opportunite....
Mary Music contacted me, within one hour. She sent a text, asking when calling me would be convenient, so my rest would not be disturbed by a stranger's phone call.
That says it all, right there. Very sensitive, and conscientious.
Cleaned our 1930s bungalow, after her 12 hour Hospice shift, on Sunday afternoon.
It was beautiful, and smelled so clean. Baby-ready.
Very happy with her work, and comfortable with leaving Mary (alone), in my home.
By the way, Mary was the only housekeeper to return my inquiry, for my housekeeping assistance!
Blessings, on your fine family....
Thank you, for choosing Mary Music for assistance....!!

Just walked into the Kansas City Club, and blessed Mary Music's name, and website. My caterer totally left me high and dry. Everything was delivered, but nothing was set-up. They thought we were setting up my parent's anniversary luncheon!!! With a houseful of guests? I was almost hysterical, and my brother found the Death To Dirt Professional Domestic Services website. Completely crazy name, but an absolute sweetheart of an owner. With nothing, but diagrams, and a torn-out magazine page, this woman called the club, gained late night access, set up everything, and went back in this morning to put the flowers on the tables! So the arrangements would be as fresh as possible. Her fee was so low for this last minute bail-out that we gave a huge tip. She saved my sanity!!! Mary Music and Death To Dirt--the best!
Leslie, and family
I highly recommend her work, and appreciate the Holiday assistance.
Mary Music walked into my house, with no instructions. Just my plea to fix it, while my husband was waiting in the car. Four hours later, on a SATURDAY, for a stranger---this absolutely great job!
Talk about a pro! Thank you, a million times over, Mary Music!
The real estate management industry is highly competitive, and relies on dependable people. Mary's longevity of employment, with our company, is the best recommendation of a true professional.
In all honesty, I wasn't exited about hiring extra help; however, she has made me a believer!
In one day, my husband and Mary Music made our garage look like part of the house!
Rugs down, tools up, work area--perfect, with ALL sports equipment neat, and hanging up. No more struggle to get to the door.
We are estatic! This project would not have been possible without the jolly help of Mary Music. She brought CALM order to a difficult "Man-job." So easy to work with and FANTASTIC prices!
We are so glad to have had her assistance during this tedious project! Got along with the husband, and that was a miracle.
Highly recommended for great work!
I was at my wit's end, with no one to help me. Not to overshare, but this review might help someone else, in my situation.
My husband and I are in the midst of an acrimonious divorce. It is a verbal and physically abusive relationship. It became so dangerous, that my children, our dog, and I fled the house. Naturally, no one would ever suspect what can happen in these gated communities. Our masks are firmly in place.
My husband is a handsome, charming, social professional. He ignores all restraining orders, court orders, etc. No one seems to follow through with legal penalties, for his violations.
Here is the short version. We needed our clothes, nothing more. Some of the children's favorite toys. He can keep everything else, that is how badly we wanted to escape.
No one would dare go to our house. My mother, sister, and brother did not want to tangle with my husband, especially entering our former home. Such an action would play straight into his lawyer's hands...Although I had every legal right to the premises , no way could we return.
So, my husband thinks everything is sewn up in his back pocket. So, I called in a third party. My former neighbor had Mary Music, of Death To Dirt Professional Services help her with a delicate job. She said Mary was efficient, helpful, and very discreet. Mary is a security manager at KCI Airport, too!
I am so grateful that I called this woman! She completely calmed me. Asked for a list of what I needed, and asked me really pointed questions about entrance, and exit. With the locks changed, how would she get into the house?
Flash, forward. Mary walked in the front door, with the regularly scheduled carpet cleaners! They come every three months, and have a workman's code. Who would ever have thought of that avenue? She has steel nerves!
For once, I won a little battle. My family got what we needed, my children got their toys, and I found a gem of a domestic assistance.
Mary Music, no fuss and no muss! And the very best, too. What a help, when I did not know what to do!
Mary Music charmed my mother, worked around her need to control, eased her anxieties about reorganizing her space, and worked with her caregiver, to provide a safer, more efficient enviroment.
I could not achieve this state of affairs, by myself. An understanding pro was needed to smooth the way. Mary is a CNA, in addition to being a truly great (reliable and loyal) housekeeper. Totally at ease, with her in the house. As my mother's condition changes, I will definitely need her help.
Highly skilled. I really like her.
As our budget grew tighter, we went from weekly, to twice a month, to monthly, to no housekeeper. Mary had worked harder to keep our home, presentable. And, we thought it just "stayed" that way. Nice to have a good housekeeper, but we could do it ourselves. We HAD to do it, ourselves. Bless Mary's heart--she squeezed us in her busy schedule, for an emergency trainwreak shovel-out. Just walked through the door, and almost cried from joy! Clean, and, pretty, and well arranged! Just like the house used to look!
Thank you, so much, honey! You are the best! If we ever dig out of this financial hole, YOU are coming back to us, PRONTO!
Great job, as always. Quintuple A's!
I can recommend her services 100%.
Mary Music organized my whole Kansas City life, shopped, and had the holiday meal catered by a wonderful company. In addition, she drew up a list of local businesses, and service establishments. Just for me! So convenient. She just left, after making sure all issues were in orde, all accounts settled, and made sure I was well-situated. On an American holiday! My mother LOVED her. Anytime Mary goes to Europe, she has a job!
I appreciate her client, Mr. Clark, for his reference for this business. Mary was exactly the right person to get things done. I can start my Kansas City life with no frenzy or upset, and I have her to thank for it.
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
I really appreciate Death To Dirt's "white glove" service. I will highly recommend your service to anyone who asks me! Thank you, again.
Highly, highly recommended! Honest and rock-bottom pricing, too! P. S. How Mary lifted some of that stuff, chest-high into a dumpster is a total mystery. My family is so happy that we can move forward, now. Thank you so much!
Just got home, and everything is perfect! How nice to come home from vacation to a clean house, and organized garage! My neighbor is right, there is no one better than Death To Dirt! You set the alarm, correctly. Even my husband can't do that!! I know you are really busy, but if you ever have a bi-weekly Thursday open, please call me! Great job, and great price. AAA+++
The house look amazing!
This is what I will say. I looked around for a long time and have 35 applications in my inbox. I just knew Mary could get anything done right away. That's it. She will do whatever it takes to help you get your affairs in order. I need someone that not only cleans and organizes, but helps me think how I make my environment work for me.
You should hire her. If you don't, I will likely find things for her to do though.
it's "Serendipity". My husband said I had one thing to accomplish on my day off...He said "FIND a housekeeper! You work too hard all week to spend your one and only day off, cleaning house!" So I had no idea where to start... (Almost a year ago, Mary had come into my store and had a delightful conversation with my friend that works for me, and left her card.) When I told my friend of my dilemma, she said with complete conviction "MARY MUSIC!" She reached in our drawer and handed me the card for Death to Dirt.
Mary has been the best thing I've ever done for myself! I do think I have asked her if she is "Real"...she is a domestic God send, I can't imagine life without her!
When Mary was done doing a deep clean of our home, it not only smelled fantastic but the cleaning was even better. She took her time and her care recalled showed. Our bathroom blinds have been impossible to keep/get clean. Mary made them look brand new.
We are happy to say that Mary will be part of our monthly routine. We would Definately recommend Mary.
