    Ask friends for referrals. I have a bunch of friends in Denver who use a woman they really like. If you like, I can try to get in touch with her to see if she has any availability or knows anyone else equally good. Also be sure to interview a potential cleaning service in your home to make sure you are a good fit for each other.

  • Try Angie's list. Or look into franchise maid services.

    My brother and his wife live in congress park, they have a 2 gal crew that comes in once a week...that is one reason their place always looks better than ours...but then again my bro does not have kids and he makes a lot more $$$ than I do...LOL

    Thanks for your replies - what a great community. I think asking my friends for referrals is what I'm going to do next. Steve G - thanks for your offer, but your reply gave me an idea to reach out to my friends.

    Referrals are the best. Do you want a company that has insurance? Do you want them to use your cleaning products or use theirs? Do they really know how to clean your surfaces without creating damage? Interview several. If it is a company look up better business and do a company check. If it is through a individual check the courts and do a personal search. Use spy cams. I have a cleaning business I expect all these questions and expect everyone to have spy camera's. and I have absolutely have no problem with any question or spy camera's. before I take a job I note everything in the house hold that needs attention that they want me to pay attention to and their surfaces and floors. This way I always have the right equipment and supplies .
