In the seven years Sandra Perez has been cleaning houses, she has developed a reputation for quality. Her clients, she says, often tell her no one has ever gotten their homes as tidy as she has.
Perez began cleaning houses in 2002, when she worked for a Chicago house cleaning company. Starting out as a maid, she quickly rose through the ranks to become a supervisor of several new hires. Her job was to manage her subordinates’ schedules and ensure customers were satisfied with the company’s service.
By the time Perez and her family moved to New Jersey several years later, she had grown tired of working for a company. So she decided to start her own business, S.P. Cleaning. She works for several clients in Highland Park, North Brunswick and Franklin, and is looking to serve more customers throughout Middlesex County.
When it comes to cleaning houses, Perez does it all. She vacuums, cleans kitchens and bathrooms, cleans hardwood floors, takes out garbage, changes linen, and she’ll even clean windows — a service for which many other maid services charge extra, she says.
Perez’s clients know they can count on her. “They trust me,” she says, noting that she is sometimes asked to look after children and pets while cleaning houses.
Her rates for cleaning a house depend on its size. For apartments and small houses, she charges $80 per visit. For larger houses, the fee is $300 per visit. Perez can be reached by phone at (732) 249-1804, or by e-mail at candela60SP@yahoo.com.
