My wife used to have a cleaning crew come in once a week at a cost of forty dollars. Times got tough and we cut back to two weeks at seventy five dollars each. We rearranged our goals and found that we could do a lot of the cleaning ourselves if we attacked it for an hour on Saturdays and an hour on Sundays. This allows us to have a cleaning lady come in once a month for eighty dollars a visit. My parents just hired a cleaning lady that comes in twice a week at sixty dollars a visit (and there place is small). I had a cleaning lady ask me for a paid vacation...to get paid to not clean my house. I told her that I would be happy to give her a paid vacation but that I would also require a copy of her social security card, signed W-4, and completed application as I would be providing her with a 1099 form so that she could pay forty percent of her income to the government by way of taxes that I was sure she was claiming any way. She passed on the paid vacation idea.

You have to look for a local person that does this type of work.

It is not easy to find someone the is dependable.  Maybe you can get some recommendation from family and friends.  I pray that you find someone soon.

$40 an hour?  Really? I need to quit my job and be a maid!  Maybe this person is living in denial or a dream world.

I would think more like $10 an hour is what normal people actually get.

lol.  Yeah I highly doubt she turned in any of the cash she received for cleaning houses.  If I was going to pay that much I would tell them straight up I would be sending them a 1099.  Don't want to pay taxes then don't charge an outrageous price.

I know a woman who was drawing welfare and food stamps and had a "cleaning business" that she done really well at.  She got paid cash for the jobs she done and had people feeling sorry for her.
I turned her in but apparently they didn't care.  I gave them her cell number and told them her name and told them just call the number and tell them you want her to clean your whatever (house, trailer, car, apartment, office building) and she will give you a price and tell you she needs paid in cash.

I am not paying anyone on a weekly or monthly basis to do anything if they are not a legit business. Not paying someone cash. I pay too much taxes out of my check for others to draw welfare and then work for cash.

Most companies will charge a bunch for a few hours of cleaning, but $40 is a low price for companies these day's. The only way you would find somebody, would be an independent person, family or friends to help with the cleaning! Good luck!

                                                                                                What these  maids steal and sell adds the other 30 bucks.  I  knew Albanian and Dominicans who were "maids" and heard the horror stories from my neighbors on how these ppl even stole the nanny cams that were supposed to be hidden.

Wow 40 does sound like a lot, then again it is a hard job though. I've never had a maid or anything but I figured it would be a fairly low figure.

I never had a professional cleaning service clean for me, so I can't really answer that part of your question. But I have heard that they can be rather pricey. Back when I was a teen, I would offer to clean my relatives' houses for like $20 for the whole day. I mean, when your 14, have no job, and want a new video game, every little bit helps! So I used to go on the weekends to clean mainly my grandmother's house, but sometimes my aunt's or my cousin's. I wouldn't mind picking up a cleaning job as a second source of income, but with a baby on the way, it's probably not the smartest idea.

That price is not as far off as you think.  I know several companies in my area where it is $125.00 for 4 hours.  To pat less you almost have to get someone who works for their selves and wants cash.
