About a year ago I wrote about my experience with Cleaning for a Reason. At that time I had registered more than one time and received rejections that they could not find anyone to perform a cleaning for me. I finally gave up.
In early June this year I heard from them again. This time it was a notice that they had found a cleaning service that would provide me with a cleaning four times over the next four months. For someone like me who cannot push a vacuum, bend or twist, it was like winning a lottery. My husband does all the heavy housework in his spare time, and I do whatever I can, which amounts to sweeping with a light broom and extended dustpan like they use in restaurants and washing dishes in small batches. My husband washes the heavy pots and pans and also helps me when I cook when I need lifting power from one burner to another. Sometimes I dust and shine the glass dining room table.
To this date the cleaning service who is working with Cleaning for a Reason has come to our loft twice. My husband is grateful, and I am happy that my glass tables shine again along with our freshly mopped concrete flooring.
If you have tried to get on the list by registering and finding no success, I would recommend that you try again. I don’t know whether the administration has changed the way they make assignments, but I know that I finally found someone who will probably continue to come to my house in the future to clean on a regular basis. Before that happens, though I have two more free cleanings over the next two months. What a victory for this household.5 6 7 8 © 2004–2012 Donna Peach. All rights reserved.
