I received a response from Rosita's House Cleaning within minutes of my inquiry on Thumbtack. Maria (Boss) came the very same evening to look at my house so I could meet her in person and tell her what I wanted done. Her price was in line with the going rate. I set up an appointment for the following week to have my house cleaned every 2 weeks. I felt comfortable enough to have Maria come while I was not at home. She assured me that the girls that work with her have been with her for many years and Maria would always be there for the cleaning.
I have been through 8 housecleaners and have only asked 1 back for a second time. I never liked anyone enough to pay for them. I consider myself a little picky. I want the tops of all the door frames dusted on both sides. There can't be any streaks on anything after cleaning. No strong odors. My floors have to be exceptionally clean because I have 2 cats and an 18 month old baby.
The day Maria came, I asked her to give me a price on an apartment in my house that was vacant. She was able to clean it the same day, which was nice. It looked amazing when they were finished.
As for my house, I was SO happy when I walked in the door. Everything smelled so nice and fresh with just a very subtle scent. I went through room by room and could not believe how happy I was with the job. When I saw they had put away the dishes I had left in the drainer, I was a little disappointed because I would have to go searching for where they put them. But I opened the cabinets to find everything was in the right place after only one visit to my house! My husband puts dishes away from time to time and he has no clue where they go and he lives here! The tops of my door frames were all dusted and even a junk room I told her she didn't have to clean was spotless.
With a baby, it is impossible to have your whole house clean all at once if you are doing it yourself. It was such a nice feeling knowing the whole house was spotless. Now I have more time with my daughter instead of saying "just a minute" to her 50x a day.
Also, Maria speaks excellent English and even texts.
I am so happy and relieved I found Rosita's House Cleaning. It took me a long time to find them, but now that I have, I will DEFINITELY stick with them.
Call them. You will not be disappointed.
