So I have decided that paying full price for a cleaning service is the best way to go. My experience with cleaning services using the discount sites has been pretty bad.
First let me say the good - the actual cleaning with Geeky Girl was great. Once she and her team came in - fantastic. The cleaning was first rate and top notch.
BUT, the first time I tried to schedule they were so, so late. They arrived, but they were so many hours later than when they said they would arrive, that I told them they couldn't clean, as I had to leave. It is very important to set expectations properly.
They were late the next time they came as well, but I had nowhere to go, so they cleaned. And they did a good job.
But I won't use them again, as I can't sit around waiting all day. Oh well, on to the next...
