Am in Home Counties. Have bust my leg and, whilst dh and the dcs (and friends and family) are all mucking in, it's not really sustainable or up to my standards.
I think I'd need a one-off clean to be starting with, followed by either weekly or fortnightly for the medium term - possibly may keep it up for good, as have been meaning to look for a cleaner for a while.
So, how much is reasonable? Is it safest/easiest to go with an established company, albeit probably a bit more expensive, rather than try to find a 'treasure?'
I have a treasure, but if I didn't have her I would use an agency to come and blitz occasionally whilst I was at home, there are few people I would trust in my home without me. My treasure is a friends mum, she does much much more than cleaning, more of a housekeeper really.
A recent thread on here would suggest that £10ph is the going rate.
