would $20 a month be too much to have someone come in and clean twice a month?

im thinkin about haveing a local maid service come in and clean every 2 weeks we have a fairly small place so wont take long and want them to do the major stuff like bathrooms kitchen ect. it will give me a break and will also help local people.. they hire those 65 and older as a program to help the elderly with jobs. i like the idea of the break and the cost isnt much but would feel weird about havin an older person come in and clean...would you do it?

  • they could clean my bathrooms. i hate cleaning the bathroom.
    twenty bucks a month would be worth it to me.

  • I would feel very strange about an old lady coming to my house to clean for only $20 a month. I mean, that isn't even minimum wage! I assume they would be there for a few hours each day, right?

  • Probably not- I like to clean my own house. As far as $20 a month for twice a month, I think that is way not enough

  • that's ten dollars a session, if it takes them less than an hour each trip then it's fine. that's cheaper than hell and a good deal for you. plus the elderly totally know how to clean right.

  • I don't know about the cost, but, I couldn't have someone come to my house and clean it. I don't trust them not to steal anything of value, not that I have anything of value but who knows.

  • I think $20 is an awesome price, BUT having been a PCA many years ago and caring for the elderly in their own homes I would feel very uncomfortable about an elderly person coming in to clean my home. That is my opinion, though. If one came in my home to clean I would probably feel so guilty that I would get up and help I would even have them sit down to rest while I finished cleaning for them - fix them tea and That's just me, though. :)
