"The bathrooms, foyer, downstairs, stairway, outside including the yard, kitchen, office, storage room, coat room, and gallery ESPECIALLY THOSE TABLES! who now gleam almost pure white again - are all sparkling. The place even smells clean. Thank you so much. Because of you, a difficult job was made FUN."
