how big is your house? I have a 4 bedroom house, and my cleaners spend 2 hours (2 people) here per week. So, in 4-man hours, they do the following: 1. clean 2 bathroom and a downstairs loo 2. clean the kitchen. 3. Hoover and dust everywhere 4. Wash floors 5. Clean inside windows and mirrors 6. Putting clean sheets on beds (I strip them myself before I go to work) 7. Iron DS's clothes: normally about 6 to 10 pieces
They work incredibly hard, as in they don't stop for a minute.
I've had cleaners before who couldn't do half of that properly in the same time.
I have a large 4 bed house but really just want the 2 reception rooms and dining room dusted and wooden floors cleaned, kitchen cleaned, one bathroom and 2 loos. Oh and halkway and stairs. Not really bothered about bedrooms, I can keep on top of those easily.
I would be very specific about what you expect and recommend doing a walk around the house on the first day as they all seem to be allergic to things like wiping skirting boards & cleaning bathroom shelves!
