The Mini Maid Service
Some people decide to hire an individual to clean their home rather than hiring a professional cleaning company. The reason is simple. The individual housecleaner is usually cheaper. Why spend more money when it's something as simple as housecleaning?
For the most part, they're right. Housecleaning isn't complex. It doesn't require anything other than a vacuum and a little sweat. But what happens when she misses your bathroom sink? What happens when she shows up two hours late? And what happens when she doesn't show up at all?
What happens is that you become us. You become your own little maid service company. And you thought that all you had to was hire someone to clean your home.....
At some point, she's going to miss something in your home. That's when you have to make a decision. Do you speak to her about it, or do you just clean it yourself? If you're like most people, you just clean it yourself because you don't want to cause any problems.
At some point, she's going to be late. That's when you have to make another decision. Do you reprimand her, or do you act as if nothing happened? If you're like most people, you don't say a word....even though you missed an appointment because of her late arrival.
At some point, she's going to quit. That's when you have to start all over again. You've got to go and ask another neighbor who cleans their home. You get to interview that person and you get to repeat the cycle all over again. Two months later, and sometimes just two weeks later.....she's gone again.
At Two Maids & A Mop, we're in the business of running a maid service. It's what we do.
Is that what you want to do?
