Atlanta House Cleaning Service Reviews: What Customers Say

Posted on February 27, 2015. Filed under: About Sponge & Sparkle, Atlanta House Cleaning, Customer Care | Tags: , |

The decision to hire a professional house cleaning service can be daunting – after all, you are letting someone you don’t know into your home. Hiring the wrong service, such as a low-cost provider, could prove to be an expensive mistake.

The Sponge & Sparkle Team – 2012

Even though I make the effort to personally stay in touch with all of our customers, I know that our employees (Sparklers) have the most contact. That is why Sponge & Sparkle carefully hires, screens and trains all employees. We also strive to treat our Sparklers using the Golden Rule.

Although the maid and house cleaning industry has a high turnover rate, our employees stay with Sponge & Sparkle more than 10 times longer than the industry average.

We are grateful for the loyalty and incredible work ethic of all of our employees.

Here are some of our clients’ gracious comments about our Sparklers.

Extremely Trustworthy

I have been a client of Sponge & Sparkle for almost 15 years. They do an outstanding job, have wonderful customer service and a very friendly and professional crew. They also are extremely trustworthy (they’ve had the key to my home since the beginning). I can highly recommend the company!

 Detailed Work & Pleasant Demeanor

 Sponge and Sparkle has exceeded our expectations with the cleaning service they provide. Sheila’s detailed work and pleasant demeanor are greatly appreciated. We are happy to have found a company to trust with the care of our home.

 Excellence for 15 Years

 Sponge & Sparkle has been cleaning my office and home for over fifteen years and always does an excellent job. I can recommend them without reservation.

 I Love Coming Home after My Cleaning

 I always love to come home after they’ve been here cleaning. They use natural products that smell good and get the job done.

 Fast, Thorough, Always on Time

We’re really happy we went with Sponge and Sparkle. The cleaners Mabia and Jared are fast but very thorough, and are always on time. We have a converted loft that gets dingy and dusty very easily, and it always looks and feels brand new after they’ve cleaned. Highly recommended.

 A Pet Owner Says: “The best cleaning job I have ever had”

 Sponge and Sparkle was recommended to me by my Sister in law. She loves them and I see why! I have a home that I am trying to sell. I needed above and beyond the average type of cleaning. Sponge and Sparkle came through beautifully. They cleaned everything everywhere! I have 3 kids, 2 large dogs, and a long-haired cat. It was not an easy job! For me it was the best cleaning job I have ever had and I have used housekeepers for 15 years! I am going to continue to use them as my house remains on the market. They’re an asset now I would never let them go! I would recommend them to anyone!

 Tried Others: None as Clean

Sponge & Sparkle is the best cleaning service in Atlanta. I’ve tried others and none are as professional or clean.

 Extremely Professional and a Delight to Work With

Karen cleaned our home for the first time last week and she did an incredible job! The cleaning was very thorough, she took her time and made my home “sparkle”! She was a delight to have in the house and she was very accommodating to my “work from home” needs. I look forward to having her back. A+!

More Orphan Socks

Unmatched socks can be the bane of our existence. Before you throw them away, however, consider re-purposing them.

Here are a 6 ways to use unmatched socks:

  • To eliminate odors:  Fill the sock with your favorite potpourri and place it in your drawer to keep items smelling fresh.
  •  To dispatch dust and cobwebs:  Place the sock over a broom handle, secure with a rubber band, and use it to dust high places. You can also use socks to dust furniture.
  • To clean:  Place the sock over your hand, dampen, and use it to clean baseboards, window sills, blinds, fan blades and more.
  • As a mop head replacement for Swiffer®-type cleaners:  Just dampen your sock with cleaning solution, stretch around the mop head, and use as usual. Then wash and reuse it.
  • To protect hardwood floors: Avoid scratching the floor by placing the sock under a piece of furniture before moving it.
  • To polish:  Apply your favorite polish and shine your silver, brass and pewter.

With so many uses for unmatched socks, don’t be surprised if you start to look forward to finding them in your laundry hamper.
