Housecleaning for the Chronically Cluttered Norfolk, Virginia

Accepting New Clients Mid JULY 2021

I have multiple housecleaning clients leaving me for new adventures in far away places. I will have openings in Norfolk, Va for housecleaning starting July 2021. If you have verbal orders or are trying to #matchday2020 here-let's talk. Soon.

If you are a hot mess of fail seeking a pet friendly maid / life fixer, I am the only person in the 757 to call. Accept no substitutes.
Incoming and current resident physicians strongly encouraged to inquire.

Anyone can come clean your house but not anyone will:
come on a weekend or after hours.
come let you in when you've locked yourself out.
overnight fed-ex your phone when you're out of town.
pick you up from the airport at are you serious right now o'clock.
move your cleaning last minute because you forgot you're on a nightfloat / postcall this week...and not charge you for it.
scoop out that nasty litter box because you're literally home only to sleep.
handle your laundry because again...literally home to sleep.

Is your life at this level of WTFICAN'TEVEN?

I got you. MamaB knows your life. I will come fix this fuckery every week. Or every other week. If it's this bad, you really need me cleaning your house every week.




Listen-If you're particular about how you prefer your home cleaned-DON'T CALL ME. I'm not the cleaner for you. No really, don't call me. If you've been through multiple maids and no one does it how you like-I don't want you as a cleaning client. DO.NOT.WANT. I literally cannot stress this enough. I cater to super busy professionals who just can't even when it comes to housework type adulting. You will be unhappy. I will be unhappy. No one wants that. There is a housecleaner out there that caters to your particular brand of persnickety---it just isn't me.

If you need to check me out some more *cough cough internet sleuth* before deciding to entrust me with your pets, key and alarm codes-I'm thatgreenmaid on Instagram, FaceBook, Twitter, Pinterest, LinkedIn, Reddit. Trust and believe I am who I am online and off.

Why Don't You Just Expand Your Cleaning Service and Hire Employees?

My house cleaning services been mostly booked with a long wait-list for years.

Yesterday I'm pulling up to a cleaning client's house and their neighbor asks me for a business card. As I'm handing it to her, I give her the 'listen, I'm booked solid with a very long wait list and it might be a minute'.

and she's so very nice and I reaaaaalllly wanna take her on as a client but I truly do not have a space open.  MamaB needs time to clean her own filthy ass hovel.

This very nice lady says to me-why don't you just expand your cleaning service and hire employees? It's a question I've been asked a lot in the past few years.

So...here's why I don't hire people.

1. I can coax an employee to show up but I cannot make them care about my client's cleaning needs. At the end of the day, if a client is unhappy with their cleaning it's on me and me alone. My name is all I have. I'm not gonna rely on someone else to make or break my hard-earned good reputation in the name of a dollar.

2. Hiring employees means higher overhead. Quality employees deserve quality wages and I don't mean $10 hour. I'm not getting out of bed for that and I'd never ask anyone to clean for that. Employees mean setting up a different ownership structure, payroll and different insurance and more cleaning supplies...oh and having to actually rent a commercial space for said employees-because running a cleaning service out of your house is a nope.
I've worked for people who have run a cleaning business out of their house and I know firsthand what kind of shit comes with that. nuhuh. It's a hard pass for me.

3. I'd have to tell 75% of my current cleaning clients that certain services are no longer offered because of "liability issues" and "bio-hazards". I legally cannot require an employee to pick up animal waste on the floor or soiled diapers that have been mislaid. I'd have to tell clients their pets have to be crated or behind a door. Laundry service? Yeah there'd be no more of that.

4. People. Just no. I can't. I don't want to. The first time I'm hearing some excuses on a Friday about why they can't/won't gonna leave me hanging with 3 houses to clean Imma have to refrain from saying some shit that will get me sued. I don't wanna have to watch employees and wonder if they are trustworthy or will they break something or say some shit to insult my clients or...yeah just no. I don't like people enough to put up with that level of nope.

I'm happy working 6-7 days a week. I'm happy with petting all the dogs, scooping up cat shit and fixing fuckery.
This type of housecleaning isn't for everyone. I'm not the maid for everyone and that's ok.
