    WOW :-)
    We scheduled a service from across the country for our parents. Sheila was amazing to work with, fit my Mom in to accommodate her birthday and provided superior cleaning and extras to make her feel like a queen for the week. I would highly recommend this service to anyone. They understand their clientele and are gracious and accommodating to all needs home and heart. Thank you Busy Bee Cleaning for a great clean and looking forward to working with you on an ongoing basis!

    I cannot say enough about Sheila and the Busy Bee team. They exceeded our expectations in their thoroughness in doing the job and in customer service. I had my mother's condo in Florida cleaned when we were in town visiting. She was thrilled and continues to mention what a beautiful job they did. And my mother is extremely particular. I can't remember her ever being this pleased with a cleaning service ever. I only with they provided services in Atlanta where I live. Do not hesitate to call and hire them!

    We are so happy to hear you mother is home, and she was happy with the homecare provided! Thank you for taking the time to share your experience using Busy Bees and know we think of you often - and as we grow, and if Atlanta becomes a possible office possibility- it would be our pleasure to spoil you there as well. All our best, we hope she is feeling much better and is able to now enjoy her trip. Sheila

    I cannot speak highly enough of my experience dealing with Sheila and Busy Bee Cleaning; if I could give them 10 stars, I would! We needed an immediate deep clean of my recently deceased mom's condo. Even though Sheila was booked until next week, she managed to accommodate us and scheduled for next day. The crew is amazing- all top cleaning pros-everyone did a fabulous job. Sheila also sent me text updates on arrival time, which helped immensely. Our heartfelt thanks to Sheila and the crew for making an extremely stressful time easy for us and doing a fantastic job!!

    When I initially spoke with Sheila, I wanted her to stop by to evaluate the job. I told her we were having the house appraised and it was a big job, she refused. She stated no job was too hard for her and her staff. I accepted that and she responded with a scheduled day and time. Sheila indicated that the rate would be $25.00 per number hours worked per employee. On the day of service not only were they an hour late (no explanation given) but proceeded to do the job. I told her two of the bedrooms didn't need to be cleaned. She began instructing her staff. We even allowed her to use our vaccuum , the same brand as hers, but I'll get back to that. Sheila knew we needed the rest of the house cleaned. Excellent job on tile floors by the way. I became concerned that the job would not be finished and her response was"we'll do what we can. Not only did they not finish, but didn't even attempt to complete the job. I told Sheila not to worry about dusting book cases so she could finish. Kitchen counters not done. No vaccuuming done in living room or the one bedroom that all I expected to just have the carpet vaccuumed and nothing else. Both bathrooms ok, but not completed. Sheila removed screens from windows, cleaned them, and couldn't get them back in so we had to call window company. Sheila told us our vaccuum didn't work and to call the company and they would send us a new one. The vaccuum she left is so badly beaten up we just thought they got mixed up. I called Sheila and she insisted there was no mix up and busybee sticker on vaccuum. Well obviously that can't be proven, but I certainly will not recommend this company. Now, getting back to the cost. She had stated we would get $150.00 off due to a March special they were running. They were here cleaning for 3 hours 45 minutes. Now 3.75 x 4 x $25.00= $375.00. $375.00-150.00 =$225.00 She overcharged me by the exact rate of $150.00 that she said would be taken off for the special Busybee was offering in March. And got a newer vaccuum in the process! If she had managed her time appropriately, the job could have been completed. Now, I have to call another company to come and finish cleaning( at additional expense)! I'll treat this as a learning experience, but will not ever use Busybee again! Glen A McClung
    Sheila W. Mar 23, 2016

    Glen- we appreciate you taking the time to share your side of the business and service with our company. We regret you feel you had a bad experience with us. To recap- through 4 conversations, and equal emailings- the details of your needs and the cost were discussed and confirmed that a clean after multiple yrs with more than 4 cats ad disabilities and emotional loss's - you shared you were overwhelmed and our bid was not going to be enough time and we confirmed for a last moment clean all we could offer was 15 Labor hours total -although could be available to finish another day. You agreed to the price of 150 off a 15 Hour Labor Package bio-med deep clean- this is normally 525.00 offered to you at 25 per hour which was 375.00 saving you -150 when dealing with inches of feces, garbage and cat hair equaling over 3- 30 gallon bags in the living room alone from under and behind all the furniture we moved. We were of course concerned for your wellbeing, health and safety on our arrival. This was indeed one of the most intense in need service calls I had seen in my 29 yrs of business. - Your issue with Kitchen and Screens- on both issues- Kitchen- as I was scouring cabinets, you personally asked me not to do anything in this area- as your intention was to replace and remodel here- per your words- Screens- you both were by my side as I was replacing them after scouring them clean when Stoney spoke to you and said lets not have them put back on- the screens have holes in them and the screen guy gave us a replacement warranty. We communicated through the entire clean your priorities and pride ourselves without a doubt- we offered you more than a extremely GOOD offer, efforts professionalism and service. The vacumn issue was nothing more than a non intentional moment- we have exchanged vacumn bodies- the canister with our logo just had been placed on your base- when emptying over 15 canasters of dander and cat hair-with 2 girls vacumning for a consistent 2 hours in the first room alone - every cushion, base, pillow, blinds, walls, bindings of books and cds- the dust came off like dryer lint. Again your moment to discuss any issues would have been before you stated - you were happy with the work, stating to us the house had never been cleaner in your recall, giving us a high five and handshake as we packed to go. We were truly surprised by this review and expected nothing less than a glowing recap- Life is tough - you have been through a lot. We understand sometimes venting comes off in the wrong way- we believe you receive superior service with dignity and no moment did we allow you to feel shamed for the condition of your home- we thought we were helping your lives become healthier and safer for not walking out as 70% minimum others service providers would have. Best to you both - May God bless you with some happiness in your dark days -We know in life-regardless of your morals and business standards - you just can not please everyone. Sheila - Owner.

    I hired Busy Bee to do a deep clean on my son's empty 2 story home to prepare it for sale. As we did the beginning walk-thru, I was impressed with the areas Sheila said she and her crew we going to clean. I would never have thought to have them remove the grill off of the fridge and vacuum there or to clean the inside of the top loading washer and dryer to within a inch of it's life! All kitchen appliances were moved and cleaned behind. The windows now sparkle, all blinds are spotless, switch plates and light fixtures are all clean and the kitchen counters look great. My biggest surprise was the time and care they took to make the front of the house on the outside to look it's most presentable (which took some effort!). Sheila is fun to talk with and her crew was very polite and smiling. I am very pleased with the work that was done by a 4 person crew in under 3 hours. Thank you, Sheila and crew for a job well done!

    The job was cleaning of a town home that was left vacant for 4 years and the owner had 3 cats. The sink had still unwashed dishes (owner left it when she left). The tile downstairs were in very bad shape. You can hardly see the grout. The bathtubs had stains and calcium buildup that cover almost all of the tub. Other than the kitchen sink, all other sinks (3 and vanities) were removed prior to cleaning. This town home has not been cleaned over 20 years. Sheila and her team came right on time and got to work and did not stop until the tasks were completed. They did not even took a break. All of them were professional and knew what they were doing. Sheila did a lot of work herself. It took about 1.5 days to clean the town home. I was amazed at the results of the cleaning. The bath tubs were cleaned and looks like they are brand new. The kitchen cabinets and the refrigerator were cleaned spotless. If there was a higher rating then "outstanding" they deserve it. I had dealings with other cleaners and was disappointed every time. I would not use anyone else when I need cleaning and recommend Busy Bee Cleaning to anyone that needs deep or regular cleaning. Thank you Sheila (and her team).

    Incredible!! I am thoroughly impressed with the Busy Bee team! I began looking for a service because my boyfriend and I are severe allergy sufferers with pets and could not keep up with the cleaning well enough. Sheila and her team came in and accomplished in mere hours what I have not been able to do in years! From the beginning the communication was spectacular. A question never went unanswered and Sheila kept me updated through the entire process. She was also completely honest about what the team could and could not accomplish during the first spring clean and fit me in for another cleaning within days of the first to really get all of the allergens out of the house. I appreciated her honesty and did not feel like I was being "sold" on a service and not getting what was promised. Not only did the team do a fantastic job cleaning the house, they also offered me advice on things I can do regularly to help with the allergies, including other products I could use and simple things like how to store glasses so they do not collect dust and dander. The personal approach to the service was amazing and I don't think I would have gotten that from another service. I cannot recommend Busy Bee highly enough. If you are looking for someone to come in and make your home sparkle, these are the people to do it! Thanks Busy Bee!!

    Excellent! Everything about my experience was great -probably the easiest part of my moving process. Sheila came to deep clean the apartment we were leaving. They confirmed on the phone and gave a heads up when they were on the way. The place was absolutely spotless when they were done. Very thorough, top to bottom! It looked like I had never cooked or done a load of laundry. Sheila and Johnny have reasonable rates and were easy to work with, not to mention super kind and very professional! I highly recommend them. Will definitly be giving them a call next time I want or need any cleaning help.

We are thrilled we were able to offer you support so you could dedicate your efforts to getting into your new home and were confident that we could take control to ensure your security deposit would be returned and that nothing was over looked.

    Overall they did not do a very good job. Lots of things were missed or not cleaned well. This surprised me for two reasons: Sheila, the owner, was with them, and there are so many good reviews. I am now convinced that one of the girls was either new and not properly trained, or didn't know what she was doing. She sprayed something on my brushed nickel bath fixtures that damaged the finish. I pointed it out to Sheila before they left and she downplayed it by saying "We didn't know that was brushed nickel. We'll bring nickel cleaner for that next time." Well, now I know that whatever was sprayed on there did in-fact damage the finish. I have attempted to clean them myself without luck. Also, when Sheila came upstairs to do a "walk through", I pointed out a couple of other things. For example, there was still hairspray build-up on the bathroom counter. She again tried to downplay it saying something like "Your hairspray is like Aquanet." So, I guess it's my fault they didn't get it clean. Funny, I have never had a problem cleaning it myself. Then she proceeded to spray my Windex on my GRANITE countertop. BTW, they claim to use only natural or organic products. Guess not. And it would have been nice if she had asked my permission before going into my cabinet and helping herself to my cleaning supplies. All supplies were supposed to be included. My paper towel roll was half gone when they left too. After pointing some things upstairs, Sheila left without going over the rest of the house with me. I guess she didn't want to hear anymore! From the beginning, she seemed more concerned with cleaning what she wanted to clean, not what I wanted cleaned. I told her three times that I didn't need the oven cleaned, yet they still cleaned it. I would have rather them spent more time on other areas. I had to tell her multiple times that I didn't need a "spring cleaning". I had been keeping up with it myself and just needed general, thorough cleaning on a biweekly basis. She still kept insisting they would clean the inside of my china cabinet at some point, even though I told her I didn't want that. Even her husband made a comment about her cleaning what she wants in our first meeting. I thought he was joking when he said, "Don't bother, she's going to do what she wants." I guess he wasn't joking! Sheila, you really need to learn to listen to your customers. We're not idiots. We know what we want!

    Hi: The team you sent was professional and polite. I do believe that there was a communication issue.. My expectation was that my requests would be met. A living room, eat-in kitchen, and 1.5 bathrooms was what I needed for the company that evening and then have a monthly service. All that was accomplished was the kitchen and .5 bathroom. I understand deep cleaning, but I felt like my service needs were not met. Please cancel my July 9th appointment.

    We hired Busy Bees from a referral of a friend. We needed alot of help- the dirt was yrs deep. They spent 16 hrs of Labor and when they found out my mother who lives with us was in cancer treatment- they refused to charge us. It is amazing to find a company so committed to a community! We had never heard of cleaning for a reason- it was Gods hand that sent them our way. They have promised to come 3 more visits for no charge to help us make our home a healthy environment as Mom gets her health in order. We were Blessed and their work was TOP Notch the best.

    I contacted Busy Bee for quote and walk through to surprise my wife, 2 hrs after my call I was met by the owners at my home. We scheduled their spring clean offer. They confirmed our home for 2 days later. They not only called the night before to reconfirm- but their team called that am to notify us they would be here in 30 mins. Good Communication. What I cannot say enough about is the reaction I got from my wife when she got home- she actually cried- Our home has never felt cleaner- and they really did every inch of our home. including the inside and out of our windows and screens.They also worked around our 3 dogs to manage this. We not only recommend their service- we have hired them as our weekly house support.

    This was my first cleaning so Sheila and her team did a "spring cleaning" of my home. I was at work, so she told me there were 6 people and took 2.5 hours. Everything was fresh and clean. There were a couple of dusty tables in the living room, but that may have been residual. Also, she told me that they get down on the floor to clean, but all around my cat dishes were still dirty. They did all my windows, tops of cabinets, fridge, and also cleaned my pool patio that had alot of dropped leaves from my plants! I've tried alot of cleaning services in the past and she surpassed them all. I hope the future cleanings will continue on this par.

Q&A

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
Each home is different in what tasks and needs will support them the most. We assess the basic information with the basic information first. Such as Pets in the home, working around children and school schedules, do they entertain regularly. What are the things they need done and the task they do not like to do themselves. We make a priority list and tackle these issues immediately as well as recommend things that should be given attention and schedule a timeline to complete them. With continued communication and a plan of action- we take the worry away, and offer the client the confidence of knowing nothing will be overlooked.
What types of customers have you worked with?
In all the rooms: The commonality between every room in your house is that it has a floor and walls. Where they meet, dust and dirt collect. You know that threat of having to clean the baseboards? Well, we'll do it for you with a smile on our faces! In the kitchen: Where you prepare your family's food ought to be the cleanliest place in your house, but for many people we find that it's not the case. Using powerful, yet safe, disinfectants and some other best practices can help reduce the likelihood of spreading illness. In your bathrooms: Make sure your home is the antithesis of a filthy truck stop bathroom. We don't mind getting down and dirty (and we're even pretty good at it).
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
We love that moment when the job is completed when the clients says "WOW!" Then they follow with a request for becoming a regular client and asking when we can return! :-)
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Always seek companies that are insured, licensed and bonded. You wish to have a solid established business with long term employees who are committed and hold great pride in the work they do and the realtionships they build.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
Do you remember how exciting it was to move into your place when it was new, fresh, and clean? Let's see if we can help you reinvigorate that feeling. A clean home is a happy one and a clean office is a productive one. By enlisting our services, you're not only getting a new lease on your place, but you're also removing potentially dangerous or allergy-inducing elements.
