I wanted to say cleaning lady but felt that was sexist lol. I am toying with the idea of hiring someone a few times a year- monthly if it's reasonable enough. My question is do i bother finding someone who will clean up after 6 dogs and a cat ? I would vacuum first but I still think thats alot of mess. I basically want them before we have house guests so that I give the illusion of having it together. Do i just hire one of those move in /out crews a few times a year? I really just want the bathrooms and rooms we don't frequent scoured- plus the tile floor in our living/kitchen area deep cleaned ( grout cleaning) . the rest is a basic go over and vacuum and mop. Quotes seem to range from the so cheap I am scared to call back ( 35.00) to the somewhat excessive ( 375.00). better yet, someone come over and teach me how to clean! no matter how i do it its never good enough for my parents when they visit!
