We've had two different women in (one through a service) and I didn't feel very satisfied after either one. They were very nice, and I appreciated them, but it just didn't feel worth the money to me. It's not because I'm Type A about my house, because I'm definitely not - which is why I want to hire someone!
How do you make the most of a maid? What are reasonable expectations for me to have? How can I make it work better for us before we hire someone on a regular basis?

I used to clean houses as well and you will pay for good service. The company I worked for expected us to clean the house top to bottom including blinds, ceiling fans, trinkets, baseboards, organize, change sheets on all beds and make them neat with a specific fold at the end. HOWEVER it is just courteous to pick up before they get there. Unless you have a MAID service, your dishes should be done and your house should be picked up. You should not expect laundry to be done with a regular cleaning service. Check references always, but you'll get more of what you want out of a private business:)
