Just had a note from mine saying her fees are going up to £13 per hour. She's v good (came recommended), and only comes every 2 weeks, but I just wondered how much others pay for theirs?

I don't have a cleaner, but my friend does it and she charges £8.00 an hour and the same for ironing.

Going rate round here is around £8-10 per hour, am in Northern Ireland, but think it might be more in Belfast

i pay £8 per hour. 3 hours a week. I used to pay £15 per hour for a cleaning service who were crap. My cleaner is fab. I hope she doesn't decide to leave. Though if she asked for more i think i'd probably pay it.

Thanks all - mine seems quite expensive then! She is independent, not through an agency. She is v good though, a friend recommended her (and she'd tried various agencies beforehand, none any good).

£12 through a small agency.

Struth! £13ph I would expect miracles for that. Thats more than some technical qualified people get! I would say £7.50 - £10ph as it is hard graft. I pay £8 SE Wales.

Avoid agency, the poor blighters only get above minimum wage and the agency cream off the top.

£7 per hour. She's great. We live in Cheltenham.

We're in the NW too - £8 a hour here but that's quite cheap compared to what some of my friends pay. I think you'd have to pay slightly more for a fortnightly set up - but £13 still sounds quite steep.

£8 per hour - Oxfordshire - she's self employed.

I would suggest you go on your local gumtree and see what everyone else is paying in your local area. I suspect your cleaner is having a larf.

£7.50 per hour - West London private self-employed cleaner. She is very flexible on dates times as are we with holidays and studying. She studies part-time and goes away several time a year.

£10 but the cleaner doesn't mind if I leave my kid with her while she cleans and I go out so it's worth it.
