About the Family
I need help cleaning my small 2 bdrm Vancouver apartment, prepping some food, and ideally also help taking care of my easy-going cute puppy (not required). The work isn't complicated, I just need some support as I'm really busy and don't have time to clean as well as I'd like.
CLEANING help includes: cleaning kitchen, vacuuming, washing floors, cleaning small fish tank, sweeping balcony, vacuuming my car, maybe washing my car too!
PUPPY care includes: playing enrichment games with my pup in my home while I work (from home) or run errands, and to help me get him used to other people. Eventually he'll go outside with you but it'll require some time getting to know you first cuz he's shy.
HOURS: weekly: 2 hours on either Thursdays or Fridays, (flexible hours) and the occasional Monday or Tuesday.
- low key, friendly, respectful
- experienced cleaner
- provides references
- reliable (communicates promptly if needs to reschedule)
- takes feedback if/when provided
- preferably has insurance
- doesn't have any hidden fees
- what you see/say is what you get (for both of us)
One of the most important aspects is to be reliable and adaptable. These aspects are particularly appreciated:
Being on time, prioritization and time management skills
Respecting the household set up and process
Ability to work with little supervision and maintain a high level of performance
Working quickly without compromising quality
Being polite and friendly!
