Cleaning service for apartment

Hello neighbors! I am looking for a cleaning company or individual cleaner to come clean my 1 bd / 1 ba condo (850 sq ft) this week. I don't usually have a cleaner so a bit new to this and of course want someone that will do a good job. I see many services want to charge more than $100, plus want me to pay for parking in my building ($$). Any insight into cost or personal recommendations of good cleaners / companies are greatly appreciated.

  • I own and manage a few 2 bed/1 baths in wicker park and I pay my cleaning lady $160 (including the $20 tip) for a deep clean on the unit. I can anticipate she'd charge probably $100 for a monthly or bi-weekly clean, but it will likely cost $120 for...

    I own and manage a few 2 bed/1 baths in wicker park and I pay my cleaning lady $160 (including the $20 tip) for a deep clean on the unit. I can anticipate she'd charge probably $100 for a monthly or bi-weekly clean, but it will likely cost $120 for the deep deep clean (think as if someone new was moving in- clean).
    I always have her come on Sunday's because parking is free on most main streets. Also, if it is permit street parking, it's usually free to park on the street from 9a-6p in the city before the permit is necessary. I'd never pay for their parking- my lady has never asked.
    Marzena (708) 215-1934
    You can get parking passes at Aldermans office if you'd like. I paid $15 for 30 24 hr day passes.
    Marzena

  • Thank you!!

My friends cat escaped her apartment on Saturday night/Sunday Morning. He is a very friendly black cat with longer hair and I think he has a lighter patch on his stomach and has green eyes. He is very friendly and likes people and he answers to Neko. If you have seen him or know where he could be please leave a comment, we are really worried about him!

Off-Loop institution Mary-Arrchie Theatre says good-bye with American Buffalo

Through 3/6: Thu-Sat 8 PM, Sun 7 PM, Mary-Arrchie Theatre, 735 W. Sheridan, 773-871-0442, maryarrchie.com, $30.

Angel Island, 731 W. Sheridan Rd., Chicago Uptown IL 60613

    Off-Loop institution Mary-Arrchie Theatre says good-bye with American Buffalo
    There was Mary-Arrchie Theatre, minding its own damn business, presenting works (including such recent hits as Greg Allen's Ibsen's Ghosts and Hans Fleischmann's reimagined version of The Glass Menagerie , currently being revived by the Hypocrites) that pretty much epitomize the notion of storefront theater as practiced in Chicago, when all of a sudden artistic director Richard Cotovsky and his colleagues learn that the building they work in is going to be demolished to make way for a new development.

    This top floor 3-bedroom at 2007 W. Belmont in North Center was recently re-listed after it was briefly on the market late last summer. If it looks familiar, that's because we actually did chatter about it in 2012 when it was a short sale. See the 2012 chatter here.
