Have you ever hired a maid to clean your house?

Just once? I am looking into it. Yes I'm about to bitch because I'm sick of picking up after my sloppy husband! I feel like I'm constantly doing it!

  • I didn't have good luck with Merry Maids. Three or four of them would sweep in like a tornado and make me feel like I was in the way at my own house, then bang around for a half an hour and sweep back out. The cleaning was okay, but several times I found things later that had been broken and I wasn't informed, so then I couldn't prove anything. After I had my baby, I was given a gift of a few months of cleaning by a private person, and I've been paying her ever since. It was once a week, now I've cut back to once or twice a month to save money, but I figure it economically. I could clean my own house, but it would take me a few hours a week. I actually save money by working during those hours because I make more than I pay the woman who helps me. Plus, she's been a good friend and an occasional babysitter. Treat yourself if you can afford it. Even once every few months, deep cleaning or dusting, is worth the money.

  • Yes. I still have plenty to do, but I look forward to my "week off" when I don't have to pay as much attention to the kitchen or bathrooms! Quite a few of my friends have the same thing, which is how I found the lady that cleans mine.

  • Yes. I may do it again. I would like to hire one to help me clean the whole house about 4 times a year.

  • Yes, for a few years then hubby decided he could do it better, so I agreed and he has been cleaning ever since!

  • Yes. Now I have a lady who comes every other week and deep cleans the kitchen and bathrooms. It's a gift from my dh to give me a break.
