Sometimes This Chore Is Just Too Much.
I never thought I would be saying this, but sometimes it is a good idea to hire a cleaning service for your students’ apartment or dorm. Hear me out…With flu season and virus’ going around; wouldn’t it give you peace of mind to know those nasty germs have been eradicated and may lessen the chances of your child catching what their roommate has? Of course, this is my strongest point, but having seen my son’s apartment after a few months of living with three other young men, I have others. Some students simply don’t have the time and are often searching for affordable cleaning help. Here are few cleaning services some of our Noles have tried.
Sparkleen Cleaning Services – the price, according to students, was just right
The Maids of Tallahassee – more expensive than some others, but according to reviews, “worth every penny”
Two Maids and A Mop – Yelp speaks highly of them and students found the price excellent (they charge more to clean up after a party, but who can blame them?)
Apple Pie Maids – Facebook reviews give it 5 stars, estimates are available through their website
Spotless Goddess – The students say they are “super cheap unless the house is a complete mess; then they raise the prices”
As for carpet cleaning, which can be necessary particularly for students who have pets, Seminole Carpet Cleaning had strong reviews. They also do upholstery cleaning. Students can get an estimate right on their website. This can be particularly necessary when moving out of an apartment to avoid cleaning fees. One might also check out Thumbtack’s website or app for reviews. Locals post about their business, expertise, and services offered. There is a page specifically for house cleaning in the Tallahassee area. You will need to know the zip code of the area you are searching.
Finally, there are some students that like to clean and will do so to make some money. Some will do laundry for a fee too. Students can look at social media for posts or post what they are looking for.
You may want to consider hiring one of these companies when moving a student out of an apartment. Avoiding cleaning charges can get tricky. Many students complain that the apartment complexes try to charge them for anything and everything so leaving it clean can only help. (You can check out our blog on moving out here.)
