I hired a cleaning lady!

Recommended Posts

Oh Leia, you're so lucky!! Eric & I discuss this at least once every couple months. We both work hard all week so neither one of us wants to spend part of the weekend cleaning. I HATE cleaning our hardwood floors, so he does the floors but i have to do the bathrooms. I HATE doing them slightly less than the floors. I tell him we'd have less arguments because house cleaning is one of the only things we tend to nag each other about. I would spend the money in a heartbeat, just don't know how to start looking. My friend loves hers but she's booked and doesn't take new clients. Another friend lives in LA so too far for her lady to come to where we are in OC. Guess I just worry about finding someone that does a good job, is reliable and trustworthy. So...I guess if anyone ever comes across a good one in north OC, let me know :-)

Here in Mexico is so common to have cleaning ladies.. mine comes 2 days a week and we pay her $20 a day, she does everything except cooking (clean the bathrooms, do the laundry, iron, etc) I can't live without her, especially now that I'm feeling too tired..

I first hired a cleaning lady when I started working after grad school. I will NEVER live without one again. I'm really clean, but I HATE the heavy cleaning - the bathrooms, the oven, the windows. I'd rather hand over whatever it costs to have someone else do it.

 

By the way - my housekeeper in NYC is FANTASTIC and affordable. If anyone wants her info, PM me.

 

Also, Abbie - my mom has a housekeeper in Seattle that she swears by. I can get you her info if you'd like it.

I have been wanting a cleaning lady for the longest time, but don't know where to start. If anyone know of one in Maryland that is reasonable, please let me know. I would love to have my weekends with no cleaning.

I always said I would never get a cleaning lady because I can clean myself. But with my recent back surgery we decided to hire one because I cant bend over and I am a clean freak so I would be wanting to clean. Let me tell you I love having the cleaning lady. It is $65 for every two weeks for about 1400sf. It is so worth not having the stress of cleaning!!! Now I can just do a touch up when need be. I would reccommend this to everyone!! We all deserve it!!!!

I want a cleaning lady also, but don't want it to be too expensive. The condo is easy to clean too since it has wooden floors. But I hate cleaning bathrooms.....

Any suggestions in OC?
