Experienced and Meticulous House Keeper
I have been cleaning houses since I could walk.... When I was a child I would clean houses for people I was close to (family & close friends) I then became a nanny for several years in which I was required to watch three boy under the age of 4 and clean the house within a very timely manner. When I was in college, I started up a small cleaning company in which I would personally clean at least six clients houses a week. I did that for all of college and part time even til now.
I have cleaned both commercial offices and residential houses; All sizes from 600 to 4000sqft: All different materials: from carpet to wood to travertine tile. I also do move-out cleaning as well. I had a client who had not cleaned his house once in a year and was a heavy smoker; By the time I was finished, the apartment looked better than when he moved in.
I have no problems with special requests. If you like your house cleaned in a specific manner and with certain cleaners I just ask that you provide whatever those specific cleaners are. In any other case, I need little to no direction and will ensure a thorough job.
I use a lot of natural cleaners that are not very pungent and that will leave you house smelling fresh instead of sterilized (unless that is a preference). My primary go-to brand is called legacy of clean. They are all natural and, as a result, safe for pets & children as well as are hypoallergenic. The cleaning cloths are so natural I can use them on clothing to remove a stain without effecting the material.
The biggest difference between myself and others is an attention to detail and presentation. Its not enough to clean a bathroom, but to leave it looking 'clean' and impeccable.
A list of regular duties:
kitchen (excluding refrigerator and oven)
Windows and mirrors
Any other organizing or major deep cleaning
Move-in or Move-out
I have no problem with cleaning a dish, watering a plant or putting up a few things. However, it will depend on the situation if it is an extra.
If you only require light cleaning, I am very quick so it can be very affordable for those who just want a little extra help.
