    For those of you that have cleaning services, are you home while they clean or do you leave the house?

    Once I got comfortable with her, I started running my errands while she was there.

    My cleaning people just left and I thought about this thread. Totally worth it!

    I am always home when they are here.

    Do your cleaning people put things away? Like shoes left in the floor, towels on the sink, etc? Will the make the place neat as well as clean?

    Some have, done haven’t. If you have the same person coming a few times a week they will get to know your house and where things go. If you use a service that doesn’t send the sane people then they won’t know where things go. Of course I prefer the later but it’s hard to find good consistent help.

    This is what I want. Someone who will clean AND make the house “guest ready” every time.

    I’ve been saying for years I would hire someone. Every time I set an appointment, I clean the house before they arrive, then cancel.

    The people that came today straightened up, which was appreciated. They have been here about 4 times now so they are more familiar with our home.

    Y'all really got me thinking about a wash & fold service. It took me a year+ to find a good, consistent house cleaner that I can trust in my home. She was upfront about not doing laundry. Everything else I already do, grocery delivery, I'll get a task rabbit person to come out in a heartbeat, I've used Handy as well. Of course, Amazon! I just looked for a new lawn service on Amazon and the companies listed were high as hell. My Mr. Lee just retired, he was great with the lawn. Anyway, single professional who does not have time for all of that. Time is too precious.

    I hate ironing my husband's collared shirts so I drop them off at least half the time. It brings me joy to see them perfectly pressed and I didn't have to do it.

    SAME!! I will GLADLY overpay a 70 year old black woman to come and clean my home. I have had two separate cleaning services in the past year and all of the workers were Hispanic. The first was cheap and they did an ok job. The second was more expensive and they did a great job but they broke something. :perplexed:

    I had a miscellaneous box for items that were picked up. They would lined the shoes up against a wall. Never placed in the closet.

    I just came back to say that Wash & Fold is a gift from God and literally took a weight off me. Turns out those two "big" garbage bags only equated to like 22.3 lbs and I only had to pay $25.90 :cry3:I'm so happy right now, idk what to do. That's my new hit. Why was I torturing myself this long?!?!

    And I got the Amazon Deep Cleaning sale and included them cleaning my oven and fridge, bruhhhh I'm so happy. All I have to focus on is organizing a few drawers & cabinets and wiping them down while I have everything out. BRUH. I could cry. Worth every penny.

    Treat yourself good. Nothing better than coming home to a clean house and only have to put away the clothes.

    Girl, they even took it to my car and returned all my colorblockers to "save me money and just use theirs" :cry3: they are my new besties. After Amazon cleaners come, no one can tell me anything.

    @MissNina @IslandMummy @MizAvalon

    How was your experience with Amazon cleaners specifically the deep cleaning if you had it done? My current service been flakey for the last few months and I was forced to used my vacuum cleaner for the first time in EVER yesterday.

    BTW - that Dyson stick vacuum is much better than the cheap vacuums I used to buy. You ever use your own stuff and be like "this some good :censored:" :rofl:
