Reliable cleaning services?

4/28/2008 Blast from the past:

While I’m on “vacation” (if you would even call it that), I’m bumping some older entries and other items that might still be of interest to readers both old and new. Here’s one about cleaning services in Hoboken. Do you have anyone you would recommend?

4/9/2007:
hoboken-house-cleaning.jpgI think I’ve heard good and bad opinions about each and every cleaning service in the area. Notwithstanding the occasional mishap, are there any downright reliable house cleaning outfits in the area?

Hoboken411 has most of the cleaning services listed on the site, and reader “Dramaqueen2000” chimes in with her request for feedback from the rest of you!

She said:

“Hi 411,
I have been a loyal reader of your blog for several months now, and have recommended it to several friends who live in Hoboken. I really enjoy the (often) pointed repartee that is volleyed between some of the blog regulars, and I appreciate how the blog sheds a light on how things really work in this town, Behind the Brownstones, so to speak. Thank you!

Does anyone have any feedback on cleaning services in Hoboken?
I would like to find someone trustworthy, thorough, and not so expensive that I feel ripped off. I did not see any listings under your business section, and I would like to hear people’s feedback.

Thanks and regards,
Dramaqueen 2000″

I booked Natural Housekeeping 4 times, and 3 of those times were disappointing – 2 of those times very disappointing. There were glaring oversights, such as the kitchen table not being wiped (with crumbs and stuck-on food left in clear sight), crumbs on the ground and on countertops, kitchen sink unwashed with crumbs and clumps of hair left in it. One time, a clump of hair and crumbs was left on the floor. One positive is that Natural Housekeeping’s staff is very responsive, both by phone and email. However, considering the cost is quite a bit higher than their competitors, the quality of cleaning is inexcusably subpar.

Check out Liberty Housekeeping (www.libertyhousekeeping.com). I use them and they’re fantastic – very friendly and very thorough.

I have been using a service by the name of “Clean Popo” after Regina’s Maids failed me. I like them a lot and have recommended them to two of my friends in town. Always on time and the girl that comes to my apartment has a great attitude. Cleaning is thorough and professional.

They clean my home in Chatham. Not sure if they travel here. There are some independents that people rave about locally though I am unsure of their contact info. My wife makes me clean the apt here though 🙁
