Housekeeper Recommendation?

Hi. I'm looking for a new housekeeping company (or a small group who can tackle a large old house). My house is over 100 years old and has many original features, so I'm hoping to find someone familiar with caring for old things.

Irma Castanon has cleaned our house for years, and cleans the houses of many of my East Bay friends and family. She comes with a team (often other family members). They are diligent and trustworthy, dependable and so thorough - they clean in all the nooks and crannies and will definitely take care of the original features of your house. If you've got specific products you would like her to use, she's happy to do that.  She is a wonderful person. Her rates are reasonable. 

Regarding COVID - her team wears gloves and masks the entire time they are in your space. As long as COVID remains a health threat, I feel it is important for their health and safety for us to be out of the house during the cleaning.

She is looking for more work. Reach her at 510-472-2017 (text is best). You won't regret it.

I have a housekeeper who I absolutely trust, is very relieable, and who does a wonderful job every week cleaning my house. She goes the extra mile. She is taking on new clients. Her rates are reasonable. She is incredibly nice. She has been working for me (and cleaning one of my commercial properties, too) for years. If you want me to put you in touch with her, please call me at 415-516-6742.

I'd like to recommend my housekeeper Alma Reyes and her team, who have been cleaning my 100+-year-old house for years. They have openings right now because some of their long-term clients have not yet opened back up to having a housekeeper come in to their home. She returned in June after the restrictions on housekeepers were lifted, and I appreciated her so much after spending two months where I, my husband, and my kids took 4 times longer to get the house half as clean as Alma gets it. I was shocked by the amount of grime and dust that accumulated while she was off! Alma and her team come with masks and gloves on, and we stay out of their way while they're here. They are fast, efficient and thorough. In addition to making the whole house visibly spotless, they are very detail-oriented, doing little things like vacuuming the upholstery, damp-mopping the hardwood floors after sweeping and vacuuming, dusting every surface including doors and window sills, and tidying up the piles and jumbles made by the 5 people and 5 pets who live here. Alma is a true professional and she really knows her stuff. Alma Reyes (cell 510 435-6018)

I'd be happy to answer any questions.
