Housecleaning Services for Resident Physicians Norfolk, Virginia



I have precious few slots open for some one-time pre-holiday cleaning or dependable monthly cleaning clients in Norfolk and the Wesleyan / Shore Drive side of Virginia Beach.

Let's talk.

Before you get an excite: I do not take on complete cleans of larger homes.
You are better served by a team cleaning service than an independent maid.
Trust me. No I don't have a recommendation.


Dearest Interns, Resident, Attending, Chiefs of Staff and Fellowship Doctors.
Hey. Hi. You need me. My last FIVE peds Interns have or will be Chiefs. Why?
Because driven Doctors are not fucking around with mundane things like laundry, trash, dishes and vacuuming. Come see why I've been called a necessity in Norfolk.

Storm Supply Checklist

It's that time of year-when outside turns wet and windy aka Hurricane and Nor'Easter Season.

While everyone else is all OMG FRENCH TOAST EMERGENCY-here's a real list of things you probably should have on hand.

1- a well stocked first aid kit.
2- 30 days worth of RX meds.
3- pet food.
4- bleach-this is one of those times where nothing else will do.
5- disinfectant spray/wipes. I recommend Seventh Generation.
6- hand sanitizer.
7- tarps.
8- multiple sets of dish gloves.
9- batteries.
10- flashlights/twinkle lights.
11- transistor radio.
12- mops and rags.
13- trash bags.
14- gallon zip top bags.
15- mosquito repellent.

A good read on Basic Survival Sanitation can be found here: http://www.quickstartsurvival.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/SWAT_aug17_Sanitation.pdf

Nothing motivates me to bring in the yard furniture like an impending storm. Them plastic chairs can do some damage.
Norfolk floods in a hot second of rain. Don't drive through the flood water. Be safe out there.

Moms to be- Is Your Cleaning Lady Vaccinated?

Vaccines are a touchy subject with some people. Especially grown ass people who don't believe they need a booster vaccine because they grown and you can't tell grown people shit.

I clean for a shit-ton of Doctors. Specifically pediatricians. #chkd #nmpc #evms

Yesterday while some of my Doctors were out there doing the #marchforscience I was out getting my Tdap vaccine updated.

Protesting isn't my thing. #marchforscience #vaccinessavelives

A post shared by ~Bek (@thatgreenmaid) on



I have multiple clients that have either:
recently given birth
are due to give birth soon
have just found out they are pregnant
are actively trying to get pregnant

Whooping cough kills babies ya'll. #vaccinessavelives
Anyone that is going to spend time in or around newborns should get that Tdap booster vaccine.
Don't get butthurt if a new mom says oh hell to no on you being in close quarters with her new baby because you failed to do so.
For us grown folks, whooping cough is usually mild and easily assumed to be "just a cold".
Did I mention whooping cough KILLS babies. Legit. Kills. It is horrific.
Even pregnant woman are strongly encouraged to get a Tdap booster between 27-36 weeks with EVERY SINGLE pregnancy.

At the end of the day you do you. Me-I got my Tdap. ...and I have a few openings for new clients in Norfolk, Va. Expecting and new moms welcome.

Essential Oil Aromatherapy Toxin Free Housecleaning

Now that I've gotten your attention with some crunchy buzzwords...
This is not something I offer as a service and Imma explain a little of the why.

Not all essential oils (EOs) A-actually (EOs) and B-are safe to use around pets or kids.
Cats have a long ass list of EOs that are super duper toxic to them.
Dogs also have a list of EOs that they shouldn't be exposed to randomly.
Birds and fishes and all those other small exotics kids like to have---yeah they got a list of NO to EO as well.
Trying to remember what compounds are and aren't safe with which species is just not something I want to worry myself with in the name of cleaning your home.

Kristen Bell's book Holistic Aromatherapy for Animals is a must have for anyone interested in oils and how they positively and (sometimes negatively) interact with animals.

...moving on to humans...

If someone in your home has asthma, a lot of the clean smelling, breath of fresh air EOs are full of VOC (volatile organic compounds), which will probably trigger an asthma attack.

The EOs that are allegedly "good for allergies" are some of the very ones people are commonly allergic to either via breathing or skin contact.
My husband is very scent sensitive. Some of my favorite scents are completely off-limits because they trigger violent sneezing fits or all out hayfever type allergic reaction.

I've heard people (read: EO sales consultants) say shit like 'breaking out after using an EO is your body detoxing', or the oil is inferior quality.
No boo-it's an allergic reaction.


Further reading:
Robert Tisserand and Rodney Young-Essential Oil Safety: A Guide For Healthcare Professionals 2nd Edition.
This book is a must have for anyone interested in using EOs in their everyday life. Robert Tisserand is a highly respected authority in the field of aromatherapy and essential oil use and safety.

This isn't meant to scare anyone off using Essential Oils or Aromatherapy housecleaning.
I use EOs in daily life and have done so for over 20 years.
I feel it's important to make and use EO based cleaning products in your home safely.

Housecleaner Norfolk Va Pet Friendly Green Cleaner December 2016 Schedule

I should not even get people riled up...because MamaB has nothing open in December 2016 for new cleaning clients in Norfolk, Virginia.

*double checks*
Nope. Nothing. For the 9th year running, I have the absolute best clients that ensure every single open spot in December is booked.
A girl cannot ask for better.

No-I don't know anyone that currently cleans houses. I don't know if XYZ is reputable.
I can tell you this-if a cleaning company is offering a rock bottom deal in December for holiday cleaning-RUN. Why would anyone need to do that? There is not a shortage of clients seeking house cleaning services in Norfolk, Virginia.
#freeadvice

Thank you for a wonderful 2016.
Feb/Mar 2017 is when I expect to have openings for busy professionals (looking at you EVMS residents) seeking an independent, pet friendly, green cleaner.
