Recent Review: It was first time for the housekeeper to work in my home. The home is rather large: 3 levels w/ 2 full and 2 half bathrooms. At my request, Signora concentrated on the kitchen, the bathrooms, the master bedroom, the carpets, floor boards, baseboards, and wood-floor areas. She could not clean everything thoroughly because, in my opinion, 4 hours is not sufficient time to clean the entire house well. (I and former help usually needed twice the time). However, what she did she did well. The housekeeper clearly forgot to take sofa cushions off the living room sofas and and chairs in order to clean away the crumbs before replacing and fluffing them. It seemed that Signora was cleaning one specific thing in each room (e.g., mirrors) before doing something different (e.g. dusting floorboards). I have no idea if Signora forgot to clean the under the sofa cushions in the family room, because I did not check when she was still in the house. Perhaps Signora ought to consider cleaning well one room at a time, so if time runs out, what was not done thoroughly --or at all-- could be cleaned first the next time. Signora left the bathrooms and kitchen sparkling clean -- better than they had been in months. She worked so hard that she was perspiring on a cold day. Time ran out before the tile floor in the foyer and down the hall could be cleaned. Signora's supervisor came inside to check on things before driving to their next job. This, for example, is why I think 4 hours seems insufficient. Perhaps I need to re-think having the house cleaned weekly. I will discuss this with the supervisor. I need to stress that the housekeeper worked hard, invested all her energy and strength in the job, and was a delightful lady. I look forward to seeing her again this week.
