How many of you hire someone to clean your house? I have a small house but with my new responsibilities at work, I can see that I am already getting behind in cleaning. I could handle the upkeep but it would be nice to have someone come in and do a good cleaning maybe every other week. So I guess my questions are what is a reasonable rate for cleaning a small townhouse with 1 bedroom and 1.5 baths (not going to have them clean the offices), or what would be a reasonable hourly rate? How did you find the person? Do you use a company or an individual? Thanks.
