Four cats and one dog.
Lets just say that keeping our beautiful bamboo floors, well, beautiful, is a challenge. Add toast crumbs under the dining room table and remnants of pine cones and pine needles from our front yard, and my predicament is not good.
We try to live a shoe free existence in the house, but it’s not always feasible with our current schedule of daily appointments.
Enter Cindy. Sent to me from Golden Shine Cleaning Agency. I was given 2 1/2 hours for house cleaning. Could my floors be clean for just one day? Cindy was at the ready!
Based in San Diego, Golden Shine is a cleaning referral service. Whether you need something weekly, monthly, or when the floors call out for a cleaning, Golden Shine works with your schedule.
Just ask Molly, the Chief Instigator of Office Hijinks, at Golden Shine. She sent me a confirmation email to tell me that the housekeeper will arrive between 9 and 9:30 a.m. to work her magic.
Cindy arrived right at 9 a.m. and even gave me a courtesy call from my driveway to let me know that she was here.
All of their housekeepers have been working independently in the field and come with plenty of experience. Though not bonded, they are thoroughly screened with background checks.
Cindy came prepared with all her own cleaning supplies including a vacuum, mop, bail, and cleaning agents. I opted for Cindy to use my Miele canister vacuum on all my upstairs floors including kitchen, dining room, living room, hallway, two bedrooms, and two bathrooms. Afterwards, she mopped the kitchen floor then used Bona® Hardwood Floor Cleaner on the bamboo floors. There were still a few minutes left. Since I had already swept the hallway stairs that morning, Cindy went ahead and cleaned them with Bona.
Everything sparkled! For a moment in time, my floors looked absolutely beautiful.
Golden Shine offers regular, deep, vacancy, and green cleaning. Whatever your fancy is, they will pair you up with an experienced housekeeper whose mission is to provide high quality service.
