We got rid of our old cleaner a couple of months back because she was rubbish so have been doing it ourselves since. Due to a combination of April having higher cleanliness standards than me and me being rather lazy we’ve decided to look for a new cleaner.
The first quote we got back was for nearly 3 times the price! A massive £22.20 / hour after tax. And they recommend two maids for two hours a fortnight for a house the size of ours.
Bloody hell! My hourly rate isn’t too a tremendous amount more than that! But I guess I probably don't look good in a maid's outfit. Although, you don't know until you try...
Let's hope for April's sake that some of the quotes come in cheaper.
