Wife to DH (06/10) and Mummy to DD (07/08).
My parents have a housekeeper (and living here, I am getting so spoiled! )
She comes 2x a week. Works 3 hours each time, and gets $100/week. So about $16/hr, not bad for around here.
She tears through the house. She's got the business of housecleaning totally figured out.
What she does:
-kitchen cleaning/dishes if there's any to be done
-floors (vacuum, mop. My parents provide her with whatever model of vacuum she asks for to make the work more efficient, because they love her and want her to keep coming. )
-bathrooms (2 full, 1 half)
-straighten and tidy living areas. We're all technically supposed to do our own bedrooms, but if she's in there cleaning floors or dusting, she'll also tidy.
-organization/putting away stuff. We all know that if we leave something sitting out for 2 weeks in a row, it'll be "put away" and only the housecleaner will know where she put it away to.
-extra days or extra deep cleaning upon request.
There is something about the way she cleans, it seems to last longer. All the things she does, we could all easily do. But when we clean, it just doesn't look like it looks when she cleans, and it doesn't last more than 5 minutes. The way she does it, everybody takes a little more care because it's embarassing to be the one to sully the beauty of her work with mess.
