Do you despair and give up hope that you will never find a suitable cleaner?  Years ago (prior to having Home Cleaners Bristol) I needed a cleaner and faced that dilemma – do I find one myself or use a professional domestic cleaning company to find one for me.  First I went down my own route – placed an advert in a local shop and crossed my fingers.  I had a few replies but I have to say I was not confident by speaking to any of the ‘cleaners’ that called that they would be suitable for me.  I lived alone at that stage and went abroad a lot so I needed someone I could trust implicitly.  Back to the drawing board, I started phoning cleaning companies and yes I phoned all of them! To be fair I am fussy in whom I spend my money with so companies that I work with have to reach a certain standard.  But for many of those companies not even the basics were there:  half of the companies did not answer (and had no answerphone), a couple answered the phone “‘Ello what do you want?” (no comment!) and of the rest only 2 sounded friendly, courteous and professional.  Of the final 2 I arranged for them to come and see me – one lovely lady turned up from a local cleaning company and assured me she had plenty of cleaners that could help me and we arranged for her to call me back with suitable days that they could provide.  The second cleaning company did not even turn up!  When I called them asking where they were, they said that I lived too far away from them – so why had they made the appointment!?

A few days later with slight nervousness, I opened the door to my new cleaner and I have to say, that company came up trumps – she was with me for a few years until I moved.  So thank you to that one local cleaning company that actually wanted my business, got me a lovely cleaner and made me a happy client.
