On this tenth day of September, 2010, the House of Rock is experiencing a cleansing that it has never experienced. On this day, the House of Rock has a maid.
For those that live in or visit the House of Rock, you can thank Mom D and Alicia D for this escalation in the war against grime. Perhaps being male blinds me to the dusty horrors that accumulate in the corners of this place I call home. It was my Mom’s and Sister’s ardent insisting that convinced me to give this a try.
Let’s talk maids!
I decided to pursue MaidPro. I was impressed with their fierce focus on background checks and security, and the manager, John Antolini, at the Meriden branch was professional, well spoken, and very articulate in his description of how things would go down.
For this first time cleaning, the charge is $26 an hour. Weekly visits would cost $50, bi-weekly $60, monthly… I think $70 or $75.
My plan at this point is to first see the quality of the clean, and second see how long it lasts before the HoR has returned to a state of shame. At that point I’ll make an executive decision as to whether the change in quality of life is worth the financial expenditure.
I’ll report back with my review.
