Household grime, if left unchecked, will inevitably develop into miniature civilizations whose complex network of treaties erupts into a devastating house-wide reenactment of World War I. Today’s Groupon spares you the trouble of tripping over tiny trenches: for $60, you get three hours worth of basic house-cleaning services (a $120 value) from Ocean State House Cleaning, a Warwick-based business serving the entire state of Rhode Island and nearby Massachusetts (see the sidebar for applicable zip codes). There is a $10 travel fee for areas over 25 miles from the Ocean State House Cleaning office on Hallene Road in Warwick, RI.
Ocean State House Cleaning's maids are masters in the art of grease spatters, shoe scuffs, marooned hairs, disheveled linens, and messy messes. For all household operations, the clean team asks for direction and focus on the areas in need, providing a sufficiently clean finish for homes sized up to 2,000 square feet. This Groupon grants homeowners three man-hours worth of cleaning, which enables either a dynamic duo to grind through grime in 1.5 hours or a terrific trio to do the same work in one hour flat. For those who'd like to embrace the professional whim, Ocean State House Cleaning also adheres to a 40-point check system, which ensures that all surfaces sparkle, countertops bling, and carpets just lie there.
