How much does a cleaner cost in Surrey and how many hours do I need?

I am thinking of getting a cleaner as I am sick of spending all my free time cleaning. I have no idea of the costs these days. What would be an average hourly rate in Surrey? And how many hours a week might I need -

largish house (3 floors, 6 beds), 3 dc and 2 cats - but I am very tidy and keep things clean generally (hence all the free time eaten up) and we are all out all day every day at school and work. Would 2 hours a week be enough? or 3 maybe?

I don't want anything major - just weekly floor clean, kitchen and bathrooms (2 baths and a cloakroom) - maybe odd deep clean here and there.

My cleaner does all the laundry and ironing, and spends 10 hours a week (5 beds, 4 baths, 2 adults and 2 teenagers in household). I pay her £10 per hour which seems normal around here (London/Surrey border).

I think you might be frustrated with what could be done in only 2/3 hours a week ... I feel happy that the house is acceptably clean and I occasionally do some 'deep cleaning' myself - eg moving furniture to clean underneath.

Feel free to PM me if you might be in similar area as my cleaner has friends who are always looking for work!
