    Question One time house cleaning service?

    Please dont judge me. But i'm after advice on a once of cleaning service.

    We rent our house through Defence Housing and we are due for our annual inspection. We didnt have one last year so i'm a little worried.

    I will admit that I am not very "good" at house cleaning. My shower is my biggest issue by far. Then there are the little things like cleaning windows, the oven and general spring clean.

    I'm hoping for some advice on a company to use.

    Defence Housing really stress me out and I always feel like Im being judged with house inspections

    Default One time house cleaning service?

    No advice, but I think it's a great idea! Since becoming a time-poor working mum I've let some of the bigger jobs go too long without attention (I could write my name in the dust on my blinds!) and have considered getting a cleaner in for a day to help with the big jobs so they're easier to maintain.

    Go for it OP, don't be ashamed

    Again no advice on a company but I agree with Holly. I'm actually pretty damn good at housework but I've also let some big jobs slide...washing windows, the garden, etc. I reckon every mum in Australia would have a few jobs they could hire a once off cleaner for - so don't feel bad!

    Thanks for the replies. I just feel bad about it because I am a stay at home mum. But the shower and oven alone drive me bonkers!

    Think i will look at it as a early birthday present.

    Pretty much any cleaning company will do one for you - it will be a bit like an end of lease clean.

    Franchises like Jim's will come around and give you a quote and you can walk them through what you want done.

    What @NancyBlackett said. Most cleaning companies do once off cleans
