Andrea Rajotte started out not as a housecleaner but as a pet-sitter. She gained the confidence of her customers, though, and they began to ask her if she'd help them with housecleaning as well. Now, during appointments, she undertakes tasks that range from scrubbing sinks and toilets to polishing picture frames, knickknacks, or trophies for being the shiniest person in a bowling league. She generally uses the supplies already in each customer’s cabinets, sparing homeowners from dealing with unfamiliar chemicals and scents.
