I preferably need one lady working with one or two helpers maximum. I do not want people banging furniture or stair case with vaccum cleaners and ladders and I need people who get in their hands and knees to wash and rinse my tiled floors. In other word I do not want half job. My home is double stories with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. Ideally if the same firm can do house cleaning and garden services and small maintenance that would suit me to a T. Thank you.
