Cleaning service needed!

I live at Chicago and Damen and I'm looking for a new cleaning service for my house on a monthly basis.

I am used to paying $20 an hour seeing cleaning people use my cleaning products.

Can anyone recommend a good reliable service?

  • Whoops. I clicked on a different thread. My bad. Do not look into these places for your needs. On the other hand, if you're looking for really awesome orgs that provide English classes, then look into them. Sorry again.

  • Grace Housekeeper

    I have many years of experience and many long time clients who would gladly provide referrals. I can provide you with a free estimate at your preferred date and time. Please feel free to call me 773-858-0926. Look forward to hearing from you!

Alderman Joe Moreno paid $18,000 by “Centrum Wicker Park” Developer

Alderman Joe Moreno (Ward 1) got about $18,000 in political contributions from Centrum Properties / Partners, developer for huge “Centrum Wicker Park” 250 units in apartment towers, condos & townhomes on 2 acres at 16XX W Division / 12XX N Milwaukee Ave. However, Centrum didn’t contribute PayToPlay $ to Alderman Scott Waguespack (Ward 32) for their “606” mixed-use plan 95 apartments + Aldi’s (1767 N Milwaukee @ Leavitt) in adjacent neighborhood. Waguespack told DNAinfo "In the 1st Ward, they are going, 'I'll give you more height and density if you give more affordable units.' It's just something frankly that I have not pushed.”

    Massive Wicker Park Development Could Bring Private School, 189 Homes
    WICKER PARK - The massive "Wicker Park Connector" development that would span two vacant acres on the neighborhood's southeast east and include homes, retail and possibly even a private school could be underway by spring. The 189-unit proposal envisions three forms of housing - apartments, condos and townhomes.

  • And those are the donations that were easily tied to Centrum -- wonder how many more there are. And Centrum is just one of many developers.

    I'm all for development, and actually think the Wicker Park project is a positive thing (although a little too suburban in look and feel), but this level of pay-to-play really bothers me.

  • MOST ALDERMAN GET BRIBES BY JACKING LEGAL FEES SINCE 90% ARE LAWYERS --OCONNER HELPED SELL A SCHOOL ANR ASHLAND AND FOSTER FOR ONLY 5 MILLION HIS LEGAL FEES WERE 480% ABOVE THE NORM THEY HATE PEOPLE TO KNOW THIS WAY OF GETTIN BRIBES
