Reliable and Responsible Point Grey Based Cleaner

Housekeeper in Vancouver

Thanks for taking the time to look at my profile. A Little About Me Experienced with House Keeping: back in the day I worked as a house keeper in a four star hotel. I took pride in cleaning a room to a high quality in the allotted time. Responsible: Before I left the corporate world I worked as a Human Resources Manager. I lead a team to five people, and I was entrusted with many sensitive tasks such as salary negotiations and disciplinary investigations. I also have my police clearance. Committed to green cleaning: I prefer to use the least harsh cleaners possible in my own home. Did you know squeezing a lemon in a bowl of water and heating it in the microwave makes cleaning it so much easier?
