She is allergic to dust

Sunday, March 14th, 2010

We saw an elderly prospective client a couple of weeks ago and as is my way with the elderly and vulnerable i spend as long as it takes for them to fully understand the way that we work and how our charges are paid.

 

After telling me that he already had a cleaner I asked what the problem was. “She is a young lady and she is allergic to dust” funny you may think, but then he insisted on showing me allergic-to-dust-pompeiiaround and when we got to the separate toilet I opened the door and he said “she doesn’t do toilets, maybe she had a bad experience in the past” I was stuck for words and thought well here goes I’ll lift the lid, guess what? The loo was spotless, not bad for a gentleman in his late ninety’s. Anyway back to the cleaner, she was charging him £10 per hour with no insurance; he rang us up the other day and asked us to find him a cleaner, which we have so the only person not happy is his previous cleaner.

The lesson here is to go to a reputable company with insurance and not just pick a number off a notice board, you don’t know who you might end up getting!

Carpet, upholstery and cleaning company

Friday, May 1st, 2009

A few years ago when Alan and I ran a carpet, upholstery and cleaning company, I went along to help him with the carpets (fill the carpet

shampooing machine up and move furniture etc)

 

It was a very big job and of course very tiring. We had obviously quoted an acceptable price and the gentleman was very pleased with our cleaning work. However when Alan had moved the carpet shampooing machine outside and went in for his money the ‘gentleman’ tried to barter him down by quite a lot.

 

It was pointed out that: -

 

a) He had agreed to the price and

 

b) He was satisfied with the work done.

But no he wouldn’t budge and after nearly half an hour we were getting nowhere and tempers were getting shall we say a little frayed round the edges.

 

Then Alan disappeared and I thought he was leaving me to it but no in he came from outside with the LARGE bucket still containing the dirty, sludgy water from his carpets.” Now sir” he said, “you have 2 choices, either pay the money agreed or the water goes back on your carpet” The look on his face was priceless and I have never seen a wallet opened so quickly in my life. Suffice to say we did get our money. As to whether Alan would have carried out his threat!

Domestic cleaning service Bradford

Saturday, April 11th, 2009

We once had a client who we had provided a domestic cleaning service for around about six months with absolutely no problems, until one day our domestic cleaners came back saying they couldn’t gain entry to the property. A man that our domestic cleaners had never seen before had slammed the door in their faces saying he had never had or wanted a cleaner.

Upon further investigation it appeared that the lady of the house had signed our domestic cleaning agency agreement and not informed her husband. She had led him to believe that she was keeping the house spotless herself. She was paying us the domestic cleaning agency from her own bank account and supposedly he never saw her statements.

If there’s anything I have learned from this experience it is that if at all possible when I go out on a client visit I try to make sure that couples are always together!

Fleas environmental cleaning

Thursday, March 12th, 2009

 Fleas environmental cleaning

A good few years ago I worked for a cleaning company that amongst other things did environmental cleaning and I will never ever forget the first clean that I did for this cleaning company.

Just before entering the customers property one of my collegues gave me some flea spray to use on my arms and legs plus also a facemask and at the time I thought it was going a little bit over the top. How wrong I was the house was absolutely filthy, fleas and both animal and human excrement were all over the place.

No one prepared me for what I witnessed and for the first hour I did absolutely nothing but retch, and I bet the cleaning company got a good price for the clean despite paying us just the minimum wage!

Clean living in Spain

Wednesday, January 7th, 2009

Clean living in Spain

A couple of years ago Alan and myself were fortunate to live in Spain in a small village just outside Granada. The first night in our new home was absolutely freezing, however on waking up at 8.30ish next morning (we had been driving for 36hours) we were met with a great sight. The female neighbours were out flicking dust from the grills on the windows and sweeping both their own entrances and ‘their’ part of the road. Every other day they hose piped their part of the road down thus keeping the whole street exceptionally clean.

After a few days i got into the habit of being outside at 7.30 in the morning to do my spot of road sweeping and gained a great deal of pride out of it, what with that and the dustbin men emptying bins every night seven days a week the village was kept very clean and I can’t help but wonder how our villages would look if we adopted this same practice
