    Default Hiring a cleaner?

    Sorry not sure if this is the right area to put this in?

    I am thinking of getting a cleaner in once a fortnight but have no idea on costs or which company I should use.

    Can any one pls let me know roughly how much I would pay for someone to clean a 2 story house. Just 1 kitchen, 1 bathroom, 2 toilets, 2 small living rooms. I would clean the 4 bedrooms myself just wanted help with the main areas.

    Also any company recommendations in pine shire just north of Brisbane ?

    Thanx for any answers u may have! Much appreciated!!

    On the goldy, I got a once off clean from my local james home services lady. She charged me $75 for about 1 1/2 hrs and did 2 bathrooms, dusting, vac and mop my tiles which is most of the house, wipe walls and tidy my laundry. I thought that was good value and was happy with her work.

    Are the cheaper cleaners not companies just private people? That's a real good price!!!

    We have someone through Absolute Domestics and pay $58 for 2 hours. She does 2 bathrooms and vacuums and mops. She then passes $16 onto AD, so that is why private people are cheaper. But by using an agency you can swap if you don't like your cleaner, and someone can cover you for sick leave etc. so there are benefits both ways.

    We have the same, Absolute Domestics, $58 for two hours. We are on our second cleaner from that agency, the first one was more of a 'hotel' cleaner, very good at making the beds in a pretty way, but only a surface clean of built up dirt whereas this one is better at cleaning the gunk off the shower! So I agree there is more choice available with an agency, plus the responsibility is on the agency to find people who are trustworthy: I'm happy to pay a bit more for that if they're cleaning when you're not there.

    I would totally recommend a cleaner, my husband and I never argue about cleaning now and we used to, so definitely worth the money!
