Not resolved

Just had my house cleaned by Richard Armijo - RPM Company.I cannot believe I paid $89 for his work.

He was in a hurry to get to his next job so I did not get to check everything he was suppose to do and advertised that he does. The appliamces still had spills on them. The stove was not done. The sinks in bathroom and kitchen were not scoured.

The wooden dining room table was not polished nor were the chairs dusted properly. I know what my sinks looked like before he came and they are still the same. Counters in kitchen were wiped at. The backsplases were not touched.

I went over the kitchen floor with a clean towel and still got dirt off. He said he would do the shutters and I can write my name in the dirt he left. I'm sending photos and you tell me if this job is acceptable?

I stopped payment on the check I wrote him.

RPM Co.did a fantastic job for me and I will be using him again.

He was professional, affordable and used a steamer to detail the bathroom.

Very good experience for me.Were you there when he cleaned?

Heard the saying

"You get what you pay for"..?

Well, You actually did.

You can expect this every time when you choose the lowest estimate!

I see this everyday,

Mexicans underbid the jobs to get all the work and then do a lousy, half-assed job!

Customers hire Them over Us then end up having to write a bad review to complain.. It's a never-ending cycle that leaves me broke and hardly able to support my family! Such is Life.

Until They..Build That Wall !

Well I was just looking at the pictures and was wondering if you thought for $89 someone was going to come in your home and clean walls & baseboards and do a real detailed job??? You get what you pay for..

Its a double edged sword.Thumbtack allows bottom feeder service providers to use their service which results in low paying customers.

Ever heard the phrase "A vicious cycle" It applies perfectly here. What you have is a company that is escalating what is commonly referred to as a race to the bottom.

Garbage in, garbage out.

Thumbtack sucks plain and simple.
