Additional Complaint Information

This business has a pattern of customer complaints alleging customer service issues. Specifically, consumers allege they purchased Groupon coupons and have not been able to schedule or appointments or have received sub-optimal service. Some consumers indicate numerous phone calls and/or emails are sent for assistance, but the company fails to respond. 

On November 26, 2013, and December 13, 2013 BBB sent certified email to Joshua's Cleaning Service requesting their voluntary cooperation in resolving complaints on file with BBB and providing steps it will implement to eliminate the pattern of customer complaints.

On December 18, 2013, the business responded stating: "The issues came about from selling nearly 1,000 Groupon deals in 2 days. We did not anticipate the volume that came from this offer. It became a bit overwhelming for the office staff for a week or so but was quickly caught up and everyone was scheduled accordingly. We also experienced mechanical issues with 2 vans at once. It was unfortunate timing but circumstances beyond our control.

Out of the nearly 1,000 jobs less than 10 had any complaint at all. While we strive to please every customer we do understand that not everyone was happy. We always have the customers review and sign a document/contract at the completion of each service that job was done to their satisfaction. Also any future deals thru Groupon, Amazon, etc will be capped." 

BBB will monitor this company’s efforts, and this aspect of the Business Review will be updated once additional information becomes available.
