Wireless not in tune with facts
IN THE Coconut Wireless column last week, the Gazette reported that two local footy players had complained a local company had overcharged them when cleaning up their unit.
There were several factual errors in this report.
The cleaners did not spend 44 hours cleaning the property or overcharge the clients. The actually spent 22 hours cleaning and charged for 20 hours and this was entirely justified and correct.
The “small” unit was actually a three-bedroom, threebathroom apartment.
The cleaners also were not having smoko when the cli- ent saw them but were in fact buying cleaning products for the work and this time was not included in their invoice.
The Gazette mistakenly did not speak to the cleaners before publishing, but after proper investigations have determined the cleaners involved actually deserve a gold medal for their efforts in putting in what can only politely be described as an extremely tough day at the office which no one would like to be faced with.
For the cleaning company and any existing or potential clients of the company involved, the Gazette can only apologise for the mistake and any damage caused by our error.
