Hello there,
How much do you pay to get your house cleaned?
I am starting to think I am being overcharged. I pay $70 and the person spend around two hours cleaning. Is this a reasonable fee?
Thank you.

Much as I would love someone to come in and clean up after me, I just wouldn't feel comfortable having a stranger coming in, snooping around my stuff, and (as Andrea said) most likely helping herself to it.

I used to work for an attorney and he had many Polish clients who were arrested for shoplifting. Coincidentally, they were all housekeepers. My take is that if you're going to steal from Macy*s, you'll steal from your employer, too.

I have an acquaintance who is so cheap she refuses to pay anyone more than $10 an hour (off the books) to clean. And when she calls someone in to clean, her place has become hellhole status so it's not just maintaining a clean, it is backbreaking work and they stay there like 5 or 6 hours! (Note: it's a small 1 BR apartment but she has it stuffed as she is a packrat.) She manages to find illegal alien types, usually from a friend of a friend. Somehow she doesn't get the same people back again. Wonder why! Could it be her incessant yapping and habit of talking people's ears off or the fact that she "helps" the housecleaner the whole time and probably gets in their way more than "helping." Or the pay. I mean lack of pay.

I pay $70 every two weeks (3 bedrooms, 1.5 baths, and basement). She's usually there for about 3-4 hours and does a solid (nothing spectacular) job.

$45.00 a week for a small two bedroom condo. Very trustworthy.
