Botched referral. What do you do when a referral backfires on you? As a Maid, you give a recommendation to another house cleaner if you can’t do the cleaning yourself. And a botched referral is not your fault.
You may have a bitter, angry customer or just a miserable client that doesn’t get along with the new maid service.
