Ask your neighbors. My lady charges 75 for a 3000 sq foot home but she doesnt stay as long as I would like. She is in and out in 4 hours

I pay that for my lady, but I get a few more hours out of her. Having bus service to the area helps lower the cost of cleaning help, that's for sure.

I'll never forget the 60 dollars AN HOUR quote I got in the great beyond. Eegads. And it was a "crew" too. Yes, I'm going to give my keys to a bunch of strangers who come in a car to clean my house while I'm 90 minutes away. Not.

To the OP- Look hard for individuals with references. You may want to send out an email to the neighborhood list and see if you get a bite.

Make sure you get a company that background checks their people because my sister had a cleaning lady with "references" and she came home to the lady napping on her couch beer missing from the fridge. I use Molly Maid & have been happy with them. I had one issue at Christmas when they forgot the microwave but they came back out and cleaned it the next day. His and Hers is not good, we did not have a good experience at all and canceled after one service. They also have very poor customer service. They are not detailed and not professional.

I like how people who have never posted before will come out with a single praise or thumbs down on a company... and are never heard from again.
I'll be sure to take their opinions very seriously

The bigger companies like Merry Maids are more expensive and generally only useful if something goes wrong. They're bonded and carry worker's comp. If something gets broken or missing, they typically replace it with minimal hassle. The only other alternative is to find someone you really trust. Or if you can predict when something is going to go wrong...

Default We love His & Hers Housekeeping

Our family uses His & Hers Housekeeping too! We give them a big thumbs up. They provide excellent customer service. The cleaners are
a married couple who could not be nicer nor harder working. They are
quick, don't take forever to clean, bring everything, are VERY thorough and speak only english. I hate it when I hire help and the talk in a language I don't understand. I think its very rude. Been using them for over 2 years
and so far I've been very happy!
