No formal interview - a decent phone conversation though.
$25 per hour (approximately 3 hours on average) each fortnight.
Main bathroom / ensuite, vacuum / mop whole house, full dust, stove & oven clean, will fold washing if asked. That's all I can think of but I'm sure she does more. She is a lovely older grandma type lady.

But she's done dishes, folded some clothes, cleaned the microwave, taken out bins that are full, cleaned venetian blinds, made the bed.. she just looks for anything that needs doing!
When we had a housemate whose rooms were crazy messy, she'd collect plates out of rooms, make beds, pick clothes up of the floor.. Ect. Which annoyed me cause it was a waste if her time due to a lazy housemate. :/
When she first came over.. She told us what she'd be able to do in the timeframe and yeah.. You can go from there.

Oh - and she brings all her own equipment / products.

We have never worried about theft. She once broke a vase and she felt so terrible!! It only cost us $4 from an op shop n i told her don't even worry about it. She felt guilty for ages! Naw.
I honestly could not recommend her highly enough. I would give up eating out once a week to have her instead if it came down to it. I HATE cleaning and our house is huge with lots of tiles.. My back would be killing if i did what she does.

I use an agency. Magic maids. I tell them what I want done. I use them 3 hours every fortnight. I have a large home but we keep it very neat and clean. I have a four bed, two bath, study, meals, formal lounge, formal dining, family and playroom. I wouldn't mind getting them once a week but don't think I really need them that much. We vacuum in between. I don't get them to do the kitchen as that is cleaned after dinner every night. I only get them to dust, vacuum, clean toilets, bathrooms and mop floors. They do s great job. It's a team of three so in and out in an hour .

Tomorrow i am going to make some phone calls to people on gumtree and agencies as well.
All i want done each fortnight is floors mopped, loungeroom vacuumed as its carpet, bathroom and toilet cleaned and some folding done. I am guessing best to go through an independant cleaner perhaps as i would love my folding to be done as its one job i hate with a passion.

How did you find them?
Did you interview them?
Yes. They came and quoted and I asked a few questions etc.
How many if you did interview? 3 I had 2 do trial cleans.
How much per hour do they charge?
$20 an hour for one person.
What do they clean for you?
Everything I need done. Including 2 bathrooms, floors vacuumed and moped, dusting, washing up and ironing when we need it.
How often do they come? Once a fortnight for 4-5 yes.
Is that enough for your needs? Sometimes we need more, but I pick up the slack as it is a huge expense. I am currently pregnant and have pelvic issues so would love them to come weekly.
