To expect poo stain removal for £16 per hour

I have just got off the phone to my friend who has hired a new princess cleaner. She wasn't too impressed with the clean as the loos looked it hadn't been cleaned properly so she called the company up (think Molly Maid type thing):
Her: "I'm not too impressed as the loos still looked like they hadn't been cleaned properly"
Female Manager: pause "We don't clean loos Madam"
Her (stupefied): "Sorry, you don't clean the loos"????
Female Manager: "No, we can't have our maids do that as really that's up to the householder"
Her (totally flummoxed) : "Er, ok right - well, I guess the rest of the clean was ok"
and then she signs up for 4 hours a week at £16 per hour
When she phoned me up she seemed quite resigned to it.
I am totally [shocked]
I would expect the loos to be cleaned for £16 per hour.
Is that unreasonable? Fgs, care assistants in care homes round here get paid £6.75 an hour to do all sorts of heavy cleaning.
When did cleaning become so precious? And WHO EXACTLY do you need to hire to clean the loos? - Local council dramatically masked bio-hazard folk???

Yes, my loos are 'skid-free' but I would expect scrubbing/de limescaling from a cleaner - I would want them to be really clean if I was paying someone to do the bathroom !
That's the weird thing too - they only cleaned the bathrooms/kitchen and hoovered the rest. They didn't do anything else.

I used to have an ironing and cleaning company, and I charged £24 per 'job'. Most only took me an hour TBH, as once you get into a routine and do it every day, you get quick, but I cleaned loos and the whole houses were spotless once finished. I had a successful business for 7 years (most of the same customers since day dot) only closed because we moved from England to Wales.
I must say though, you pay for what you get, but YES loos should be cleaned!!!!
