A few weeks ago, Thanksgiving was looming large on my calendar. I had done zero preparation. My husband’s entire family was flying in from Florida for Thanksgiving week. Not to mention, I was hosting a big holiday party at my house the weekend before Thanksgiving. I also had a ton of work projects to wrap up before my company arrived. On top of it all, my husband was traveling out of the country for 10 days, so I would have no help from him.
I came to point as I was looking at my long to-do list when I said to myself, “There’s no way. I can’t do it all.” I need help.
So I picked up the phone and called Mariposa Cleaning Services.
In the midst of a super busy week, Monique from Mariposa Cleaning Services took care of me. My showers got scrubbed. The toilets sparkled. My tile got mopped. My house looked like it had gotten a make-over when they were finished cleaning. And I got my time back and felt like I could exhale.
One of my party guests that weekend remarked, “I don’t know how you do it all.” And I casually replied, “I don’t. I have a lot of help. And I hired a house cleaner.”
The party was a blast. My in-law’s visit was wonderful. And I wasn’t stressed that someone might see my gross showers or nasty floors because they were clean! I even got to welcome my husband home from his long trip to a clean home.
I really want to feel comfortable in my house (and I want my guests to as well), so having a clean space is important to me. As much as I don’t want it to be true, there’s a connection between my mental state and the state of my house. But there’s only so much time in the day. So sometimes I need to bring in the reinforcements.
There’s no shame in getting some help. So I hope if you’re feeling as overwhelmed as I was as the holidays approach, you’ll consider Mariposa Cleaning Services. Or maybe you should ask for a clean house for a holiday gift. That sounds like a Christmas miracle to me!
Monique Rivera owns Mariposa Cleaning Services. She’s so approachable and kind. I feel so comfortable around her. I not-so-jokingly told her not to think less of me because of the state of my house. And her reply was amazing.
“We are a judgement-free cleaning service,” she said.
She kept on, “We know you’re busy. You wouldn’t be hiring us if your house were spotless. Let us help you love where you live.”
What a relief! Apparently it’s a common feeling to be concerned that your cleaning service is going to judge you. Who knew? I’m glad to know I’m not alone.
Mariposa Cleaning Services also provides environmentally friendly and organic cleaning options because your family’s health and your preferences are a priority to them.
Lastly, I love what Monique told me about customer satisfaction. She said communication is the most important thing between a client and cleaning service. If I didn’t like something they did or I wanted them to do something different, I could just say the word, and they’d fix it. Easy peasy!
