General Household Cleaning by Marie
About this pro
Besides the general weekly,semi-weekly cleaning, I offer services of scrubbing walls, windows, and woodwork.One special task I always perform for my clients is that I scrub their bare floors by hand. I am very meticulous with my cleaning, as my reputation is on the line. My many years experience in the housekeeping field lead me to feel that my being a housekeeper is not just a job, It's a career that I am proud of. I love the end result of seeing/hearing how my clients feel that my thorough cleaning makes a positive impact in their lives. I have cleaned for people from all walks of life, whether they are physically handicapped,or the busy executives that are rarely home when I clean for them. One client from Canfield, Ohio was rarely home when I get there to clean,or when I leave.She and her husband both work full time jobs. As I do with all my clients homes I would spend 7-8 hrs client their home. Also, I let their dog out when I was cleaning there to do her business. My other client in Canfield was sometimes there when I got there, but would leave after I got there, and would come home before I leave. I spent 7-7-1/2 hrs cleaning their home, which was a large executive size 5 bedroom, 4 bathroom home. Another former client in Canfield hired me to clean their home on a weekly basis for 14 yrs. Then they moved to Virginia, so she hired me to perform a final cleaning of their home before putting it on three market. It took 7-8 hrs to thoroughly clean. My former client in Niles Ohio,also left for her job when I was cleaning for them as well, so they knew I was trustworthy enough to be alone to clean in their home. I continued cleaning fur them fire a year until she lost her job. My former home in Canfield, Ohio was 20 miles from my clients home in Niles, so I had to charge them $20 hr to make my gas consumption worthwhile. I also let their 4 dogs outside to do their business while I was cleaning.

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I charged the going rate of $15 hr for clients that live near my previous residence in Ohio. One of my regular clients I cleaned for weekly lived 25 miles from me, so I had to charge $20 per hr to compensate for my gas consumption. I spent 8 hrs cleaning their home, and all of their floors were scrubbed by hand. They had 4 dogs, and 5 cats, so the pet hair cleanup was intense, which is why it took longer to thoroughly clean their home. After a year, she lost her job, so she had to discontinue my employment as their housekeeper.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I ask them which area of the house they want me start cleaning as, some clients prefer to stay on the opposite floor of where I am cleaning,so I am out of their way as they tend to what tasks they are taking care of. Some my clients in the past had full time jobs, so they were rarely home when I cleaned for them. I would just lock the door on the way out.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I am constantly learning new tips/ideas about cleaning that make my job easier for me. If I I am not reading something about cleaning tips on the internet, I am watching a tv show with Martha Stewart. I have often gone to the library to the library,and read books about cleaning,as they sometimes offer advice about general cleaning tasks, as well as removing stains advice for removing stains from carpeting and laundry as well. That can be as easy as spraying a mixture of hydrogen peroxide & Dawn dish soap to remove carpet stains, and watching them disappear.
