    Question For those that have cleaners..

    How much do you pay?

    What areas do they clean?

    Who supplies cleaning gear?

    How often do they come?

    I clean my sisters house for 3 hours per week, $25 per hour. I clean anything with anything she wants me to use (she supplies it all, I request if I want something specific). My pet hate is having to pick up all of the random stuff in areas she has asked me to clean (but she probably takes the mickey a little here because I'm her sister) because it takes time. I love that she has a quality dyson with all the attachments.

    I pay $54 for two hours, and she does the bedrooms, living room, hoovering, kitchen, toilet, bathroom including moping. She uses some of her own products and some of mine.

    I love her, she is a life saver!

    $25/hr. She supplies everything, even brings her own mop!

    She does all floors, all wet areas, changes sheets, irons, cleans windows, basically anything that needs doing.

    $85 for 3 hrs through an agency. She has only come once so far, and was a lovely lady but unfortunately, next to useless... I will give her one more chance with much firmer, more explicit instructions... Uses my products and vacuum cleaner etc...

    $50 for two hours- we supply the stuff, she does :
    Floors -vacuum and mop
    Bathroom and toilet
    Surfaces/dusting

    And she lines things up neatly as a special little touch which always makes the house look better.

    We have only had her 4 times so far and twice she has left change because she finished earlier. Even though I would have no idea because I'm not home when she comes. She is pretty awesome

    Thanks, I will call them after her next visit and request a new cleaner unless she does much better ...I feel bad, but no point in paying if I have to do it myself anyway!
