hey, thanks for your response.
i am from shreveport, louisiana. yes i did agree to the $500, 400 after 1st clean, 100 after final. as far as the scope, i was told about (everything,)?? yeah right. except the garage, but i said okay after the deal.
yes i had a partner splitting the $ down the middle. together our work hrs so far is 45hrs, plus my boyfriend came over & cleaned the high windows outside for me, took him bout 1 1/2 hour.
here is my problem, there was no water, carpet wasn't finished, painters were not finished, mirrors were not there yet, so i did the best i could for the first cleanup, i thought,
i can't seem to please this guy.
i meet with him after the first clean up so he could tell me what all he expected. he was not pleased with any of my work, "he expected a whole lot more" he said i need to clean the windows again, floors are pergo so he wanted me to clean them with dust mop and endust,
i had used murphys soap oil, my mop was wrang out real good.
he wanted me to get the scratches out of the tub???? i chalked it up again cause i really wanted this house to be my "word of mouth. "
seeing that he wasn't pleased i didn't asked for the first payment i was going to wait until i got through and he was pleased. he called and asked if he could pay 250 now 250 on final. i already had invoice completed so he paid the 400.
so i go back for final clean which i knew what he wanted, i though??he had sticky notes all over the house, as i cleaned the sticky notes came off.
i didn't know i had to scrape paint off the windows but i wanted to do a jam up job so i went & bought a scraper & oops,i thought the windows looked great. he said i needed to redo all the windows. i sucked it up and cleaned the windows i could reach, he still is not happy, the tub got scratched by one of the contractors,thank God i showed him that before i ever touched it. he said he has never had to worry about that in the past that the clean'n crew took care of all that. he is still hold'n my final payment.
not wanting to burn any bridges, just his,
i told him that it was obvious that i couldn't make him happy, but i agreed to do this job and i would come back one more time but this was it.
the house is already sold 435,000.00
