I took advantage of the Groupon offer, and am REALLY pleased that I did. I called a bit in advance and got the date/time I wanted, no problem. The person taking my info was professional and polite.
Edwina A was the person they sent, and she did a WONDERFUL job. She arrived a few minutes early (which I very much appreciate), was very nice and did outstanding work. She worked diligently, quickly and quietly. (I work from home and was a little worried about distractions - but there were none.)
I've only used Sumeshe this one time, but will absolutely use them again based on my experience today.
I made my appointment over the phone and even though a recent Groupon had run successfully (which I didn't purchase) I was able to get an appointment easily for the day and time I was seeking two days in advance. I was told to have cleaning supplies ready and that it would take two hours. This means if you are "green" your cleaning will be "green" and you won't have to pay an exorbitant amount of extra dough for that specialty. To be honest, I was doubtful that anything could really be cleaned in two hours (I clean for two hours and dustbunnies are out dancing the next day) but booked the appointment anyway.
Mirlene arrived right on time and immediately set to cleaning my house. I will say I am tidy by nature but deep cleaning is not my forte. I have two toddlers and just keeping the chaos of toys, books and clothes at bay is enough that I am exhausted and spent by the time I even begin to think about "deep cleaning" the bathroom.
Within two short hours Mirlene cleaned my 2 bedroom apartment (which is about 950 Sq Ft) really focusing on deep cleaning the bathroom and kitchen and then proceeding to vacuum, mop and dust the entirety of the remaining rooms. She got into areas I rarely think about: the ceiling fan, the blinds, the moldings, all my bookshelves, underneath the couch and children's furniture (oh, the things she found, embarassing!!!)
I have to say, I'd never had anyone else clean my house before and I was a bit reluctant to have a stranger in my home but Mirlene was professional, efficient and amazing at what she does. My husband, who normally could live in a pile of garbage and be quite happy, came home from work that evening and said "Wow, what happened in here?!?" He ACTUALLY noticed, which is a testament to Mirelene. The house smelled beyond clean and continued to smell that way for well over a week.
My only disappointment is that now I am hooked on Mirlene. She's my gateway drug to having help in the house that I had always eschewed as an unnecessary expense...I was wrong. Sumeshe Maids and Concierges is worth EVERY cent and owned and operated by women who are extremely professional, proficient at their craft and a wonderful company.
