After moving from Dallas to Fayetteville, we were in the unenviable position of locating household cleaning help without the benefit of a reference from a known and trusted source. We took our chances through Craigslist and advertised for cleaning help for ?a pair of persnickety and picky people.? From the ten or so respondents we selected four to interview and only three actually showed up at the appointed time and place. Of the three, only Geraldine understood what we wanted and how we wanted it done. Others told us when and how they would tend to our household cleaning needs. Accordingly, we selected the candidate who was the most willing to do the work to meet our standards. And, we are certain that we selected the correct candidate. Over the last eight months during which Geraldine has worked for us, she has gained our complete trust, has perfect attendance, and has not disappointed once. She worked through endless weeks of our unpacking, sheetrocking, sanding, painting, rewiring. And no matter the type of mess or the amount of chaos, she was able to forge through and bring some order and organization to our house. Because she is a self-starter as well as one who takes directions, she is confident in taking on tasks not assigned to her while still meeting our standards ? a rare quality in house cleaners and non-existent in cleaning services. Her work is thorough, complete, and well-executed. ?Clean? to Geraldine is a deep clean. She uses the right tools and products for each task to not only clean but also to protect and maintain. She does not wipe, she scrubs when necessary and appropriate. She can manage her work load and rotates among chores without ever leaving an area neglected. She is independent and takes ownership and pride in her work as though our house was her house. But, she never allows her ego to preclude her from accepting instructions or criticism. She need only be told how to do something once. Geraldine is a low-maintenance worker for a high-maintenance household. She does what she is supposed to do when she is supposed to do it. We return home pleased and satisfied with her work instead of annoyed or underwhelmed as we have been with the performance of other house cleaners or cleaning services. Such a work product and a worker make us certain that we are receiving our money?s worth. We demand a clean house and now have a delightful person keeping it clean who is as persnickety and picky as we are. We are happy to further discuss the work product of Ms. Brewer who we wholeheartedly recommend.
