Topic: Housecleaning Cost
I’d like to hire a housecleaner for bi-weekly cleaning and was wondering what other folks who get regular cleaning services pay. I live in a tiny 2-BR rowhouse which I generally keep pretty neat so really only need someone to do all the more annoying chores — i.e. scrubbing bathrooms, dusting, mopping, etc. I’ve used an agency in town recently, but thought they were exhorbitant ($60/hour plus tip). For biweekly cleanings, they quoted $110 for each cleaning. With $20 tip, that comes out to $130 which is more than I’d like to pay…. (I had figured $100 flat, including any tips, would be fair for a biweekly cleaning). Anyway, so instead of using an agency, I’d like to hire a person directly to save on middleman costs. Would love to hear examples of prices that other folks pay, and if people think $100/week is too low, high or about right. Thanks!
