    Default Cleaner Q? How long to clean bathrooms?

    Hi, just wondering how long it takes you or your cleaner to clean two bathrooms?

    Ensuite has double shower, double vanity, bath & toilet. Kids bathroom shower, bath, vanity and separate toilet.

    Feel like my new cleaner is taking the **** haha!

    Thanks

    I would say about an hour to do both. I take a little longer in the shower because I use glass cleaner on the shower screens too once cleaned.
    How long is the cleaner taking?

    Thank you!

    Two hours! There's no way it takes me that long (house is 3yrs old & not dirty, just hard water on glass a bit) but I wasn't sure if I was just doing a slack job

    Two hours is a long time! Even when I scrub the glass shower screen with magic eraser and do everything from top to bottom it would take me maybe an hour for both?

    Two hours seems like too much time.

    A professional cleaner should be able to knock that over much quicker. Is this cleaner very experienced?

    When I've hired professional cleaners in the past (e.g. end of lease cleaning), they always surprise me on how much they get done in a short period of time.

    Anyway to answer your question, I would say 1 hour at the most if I did it myself.

    My cleaner does both bathrooms/toilets, vacuums the whole house (inc the sofa!), wipes the kitchen, mops the floors and often finds time to do something extra like fold the washing or scrub out the laundry tub. She is never here for more than 2 hours (she's a legend).
    Occasionally I'll do a deep clean of both bathrooms including the drains, full scrub, toothbrush in the crevices etc & it wouldn't take me more than 1 hour.

    That's a long time! Our cleaner wouldn't take more than an hour.
