    Default For those with a cleaner

    How did you find them?
    Did you interview them? How many if you did interview?
    How much per hour do they charge?
    What do they clean for you?
    How often do they come? Is that enough for your needs?

    Thanks.

    Subscribing, oooooh maybe that's something I might look at doing.....

    Only I have certain cleaning products I like to use. Or more importantly a number of products I can't use or I will have a huge asthma attack. I wonder if that would be an issue.

    Dont think it would be an issue as long as the people knew what they were i guess incase they were allergic or something.

    I'm just in the process of looking around for one too. I would love to know what people get them to do. I want one to do a thorough clean once a f/n so I can just keep on top of the regular stuff.

    How did you find them? My mum used them.. And i think she just saw an ad in the paper.

    Did you interview them? How many if you did interview? I didn't.. I knew my mum was happy so i just asked her when she could start!

    How much per hour do they charge? She charges $54 for 2 hours.

    What do they clean for you? Vaccum n mops all floors, cleans both bathroom n toilets, dusts everwhere n gives kitchen a clean. She'll clean whatever she see's that needs doing in those 2 hours.

    How often do they come? Is that enough for your needs? Once a fortnight, which is great! But we have no kids yet and are pretty clean.. So those needs may change!

    <3 our cleaner.

    I went through an agency I found in the yellow pages, that way I didn't have to worry about their history etc.

    Mine comes for 2 hours each week. She scrubs both our bathrooms, kitchen, mops and vacuums all the floors, and a bit of general tidying depending on how much mess we have. If the house is pretty clean because we've been away or mum has visisted ha ha, instead she will do spring cleaning type things like dust the top of curtains, clean windows etc.

    She uses our products and equipment, so don't have to worry about allergies to chemicals etc.

    Used to have one & will be looking for another one soon.

    I didn't interview, I went through an agency. They do interviews, police checks etc before hiring them.
    I paid $25 an hour in inner Melbourne.
    She cleaned the kitchen, bathroom, toilet, dusted, vacuumed, mopped and made the bed if we hadn't. She did that in 2 hours once a week. This was pre kids & was perfect for us.

    Now I'd be looking for someone for the same amount of time but to do bathroom & ensuite & vacuuming as a priority and if she can fit in anything else, great (we've moved to a bigger house now). I'm happy to do everything else.

    Cleaners will do dishes etc though this falls under housekeeping rather than cleaning which most agencies differentiate between.
