I want to hire a maid

But how clean should my house be before I let them see it? I would be embarrassed if they came in and saw it in a mess, but I need help with my daughter's rooms and just cannot seem to maintain them- there are toys all over the place and the more I clean the more mess there is left it seems.

  • try hiring a professional organizer before you hire a maid. most maids need the house tidy, so they can come in and clean. once you find a proper place for everything, you may find you do not need a maid at all! if you know someone that is highly organized they may be able to come in, take a look around and help out a lot! some people are very good like that.
