My husband and I pay about $85 for a once a month cleaning for a 3 bedroom – 3 and a half bath row home in Petworth. She was going to charge us $190 for twice a month, but I thought that was to high, so I tried to negotiate a better rate, she was able to come down to $160 a month. We aren’t messy people and I only needed someone to come in and clean the bathrooms, dust, vacuum, etc so we decided on once a month for now and potentially increasing the cleanings at a later date. Since she isn’t part of service, I don’t leave a tip – the month goes directly to her. I plan on tipping during the holidays though.
