No relevant category on Google My Business Map Listing

Hello,

 

I am trying to register our website in Google my business but in the Map listing no relevant category pops up. (Not even a close one)

Our website is shinyspace.net and we are a cleaning service company. Please, advice how I must proceed.

 

(I am stuck in the very last tab of  Google Map listing called: "Category")

 

Business Name:

Shiny Space

 

Business Address:
 
4401 Yellow Rose Dr Austell, GA 30106
 
Phone number:
(404) 419-3909
 
Google+

 

 

 

 

 

Be good and Thanks for your time,

Melisa

I don't understand this as "cleaning service" is a listed category (at least for the US, CA& UK)

 

Are you in a different country and not able to use "cleaning service"  your category in any other country as US, CA& UK?

 

Can you provide any error messages getting from GoogleMyBusiness while trying to use "cleaning service"  as your category?

We have a similar problem - we are independent advisers on prepaid funeral plans and the nearest category is Funeral Directors, which we are not.   What can I do please?
