I had private cleaner weekly, and keep VERY clean house!! After move out, I took photos BEFORE Golden Maids arrived as my flight left soon after to the West coast. When I received a bill for 4 hours, I nearly fell over and emailed the company thinking there was some mistake. They emailed there would be 1 cleaner however, a male and female arrived so figuring its another error. I emailed photos I have attached showing how clean it was prior to them arriving to question how it could possibly take 4 hours ( I also wiped drawers, cabinets, and cleaned oven ( microwave was never used in the year the unit was leased).
They emailed this reply to my pre- clean photos.
"Our girl cleaned inside of the oven, fridge and microwave as you initially asked. She did all baseboards, floors (vacuumed and mopped), cleaned all cabinets inside and out and did deep cleaning of the bathroom.
Looking through the pictures attached, I see that she did a good job. It took her 4 hours."
Again... these photos were taken BEFORE... NOT after as her reply suggested.
For my comment- I will let you, the reader decide if it would take most anyone 4 hours to clean less than 1000 sq feet in a new building with 1 renter that was rarely home, had weekly cleaning, and OCD for order and cleanliness. I do not like taken advantage of so this is certainly not about the money - in fact, they charge very little for a company.
I will not recommend nor ever use again in the future but try to get the word out.. if it sounds too good to be true ( about price)..... we know how it ends.
