Avoid “Cleaning Ladies” Like the Plague!

By:  Cathy Green

I like to warn potential clients not to hire “off the street” cleaning ladies. Look at the ad below, from Craig’s List:

 

I WILL LEAVE YOUR HOUSE SPOTLESS AND SMELLING FRESH CALL(571)278 —- (virginia)I AM A VERY RELIABLE , TRUSTWORTHY AND DEPENDABLE CLEANING LADY. REFERANCES AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST. I WILL LEAVE YOUR HOUSE SPOTLESS AND SMELLING FRESH!

 

This “cleaning lady” then goes on the spell out a list of services she provides. And she ends with:

GET YOUR HOUSE CLEANED BY A PROFESSIONAL!! CALL ME TO SEE THE DIFFERENCE I CAN MAKE IN YOUR HOME , I GUARANTEE IT!

LOCATIONS SERVICED: FALLS CHURCH, ARLINGTON, SPRINGFIELD, FAIRFAX, VIENA, BURKE ,MC LEAN , ALEXANDRIA,CHANTILLY,RESTON, HERNDON, ASHBURN,CENTREVILLE.- CALL US
(571)278—-

I have ONE piece of advice for those who think they can save a buck by hiring a “cleaning lady” from off the street, as opposed to a legitimate, registered cleaning company. DON’T DO IT!

Doing so could cost you your money, jewels, property…health, or even your life.  “Cleaning ladies” are not registered. They are not real businesses. They DO NOT pay taxes. And when you bring one of them into your home, you are liable if they get hurt in your home AND you are responsible for those taxes.

DON’T DO IT!
