Telephone Pole Maids

12/8/2010:

Can you judge which services are reputable?

We already have a Windshield Tweets category here on Hoboken411, and I’m strongly considering a Telephone Pole Tweet section too…

I noticed a new batch of fliers posted on utility poles around town – promoting housecleaning services.

In today’s “matchup,” I’m pitting “Genesis Cleaning Services” vs. “Housekeeper Svetlana.”

Housekeeper Svetlana

Phone Number: 917-504-0880
Web: None.
Email: Housekeeper.Svet@gmail.com
Services: Cleaning service for apartment, house and office. “Light or Hard” cleaning, plus court-yard and “other.” Bilingual (Russian, English).
Analysis: For one thing – I really thought the information was presented in an intelligent way. Plastic business card sleeves stapled to the poles. Multi-colored paper slips inside. Shows creative thinking, as the sleeves are waterproof and can be re-filled.

Has anyone used Svetlana? Any good?

Genesis Cleaning Services

Phone Number: 201-697-7918 or 201-320-4096
Web: www.genesiscleaners.com
Services: The flier indicates cleaning services for home, office as well as “building maintenance” (whatever than means). They claim good references, and full insurance.
Analysis: The flier is just a rip-tab piece of paper that will eventually become worn out and fall on the ground. Website says “Forbidden.” Bad sign.

What about Genesis? Has anyone used them?

Svetlana came to clean my mother in laws apartment after we just bought it and the builder had left it really dirty. Svetlana and her husband came the same day i called and they worked their magic! It took 6-7 hours but when it was complete, the apartment looked and smelled fantastic! They cleaned floors, windows, bathrooms, kitchen and wiped everything down – which was no small thing given that there was paint dust everywhere! Definitely will use her again! Excellent service and highly recommend her!

I’ve had Svetlana clean my apartment several times, and I could not recommend her higher. She was incredibly easy to schedule and very flexible (even though I’ve tried to get her on very short notice).

She is incredibly through, diligent and does an excellent job cleaning areas that I wouldn’t even think to clean!

She comes in, does her job and then she’s gone. She’s wonderfully efficient and most importantly, very fairly priced! Definitely book her, you will not regret it.

Thanks Hoboken 411, I found here execellent cleaning service. Svetlana is the best cleaner that I ever had. She always pays attention to all details in my apartment. I trust her my home when I leave for work and when I get home, everything is very clean and nice. Svetlana cleans my apartment every week. She is honest and hard working person. I higly recommend Svetlana to everyone who looks for thorough cleaning service.

Had a consultation for my 700 sq ft 1 bedroom. 140.00 per visit. Seems steep…is it?

Sounds like it. I use Clean Popo and for my Hoboken apartment of similar size and it is cheaper then that. They don’t cut corners either. [quote comment=”202431″]Had a consultation for my 700 sq ft 1 bedroom. 140.00 per visit. Seems steep…is it?[/quote]

Svetlana is one of the best cleaners I have ever had — she is reliable, flexible with her schedule, accommodating, and pleasant. She cleans meticulously and with exceptional attention to detail.

I would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone who is interested in trustworthy, intelligent, and impeccable cleaning person.
