10. Southern Comfort Cleaning Services
- 6 years in business
- 26 hires on Thumbtack
"Because of medical issues, I lost my stamina and will to clean. When I was well, I actually enjoyed doing housekeeping. My son was due to come today, December 31. Although I doubted that any cleaning service would work on New Year's weekend, I hoped for a miracle. Thumbtack was great when I used them a long time ago. As I scrolled through your list of cleaners, most said they would respond in 2 to 4 days. Southern Comfort Cleaning Services said they could come on Saturday. I couldn't believe my luck. This would be the first time in my life to hire a cleaner, and I was so embarrassed by the condition of my home. When Tammy and Angie arrived, I burst out crying because I was so glad to see them. They were phenomenal to me. In a gentle tone, they said I should just go relax, and they would take care of everything. For the first time in months, I sat outside on my porch in the sun, getting some fresh air at last. Although I have had a long career as a professor, my retirement pension is meager. I had no business spending money to get the house in order, but even if I had to skimp on groceries, this meant more to me. I love to be in an orderly, peaceful home. They worked so hard, and I just could not believe what an amazing job they did. I was speechless. When it came time for them to go, they presented me with a little gift bag that contained a lovely candle that looked handmade. Now that the mess is under control, I hope to keep it this way. I'm looking for some freelance writing jobs online, as I am also an author. If my funds increase, I will definitely call them to come once a month, perhaps. They were so friendly, kind, respectful, and encouraging. I couldn't help but hug them. Without a doubt, Tammy and Angie are angels in disguise."
