Would you hire a maid, or housekeeper?
Would having someone come into your personal space bother you?
I have hired cleaning services in the past, but they often do not meet my requirements. Does a cleaning service count as maid service?
No, I would not want someone messing with my stuff. If I had a regular cleaning service, maid, or house keeper, I would have to rearrange my living space so that anything I considered very personal, or very valuable, would not be accessible to them. One reason I would never live in a mansion even if I could afford one in every country in the world.
Good question! I don't feel comfortable having someone come into our home when we're not here. We lived in an apartment for a while, and at least once a month, we would have building maintenance staff come into our apartment while we were at work. We would have to lock our cats in the bathroom all day, and though I always put a huge sign on the door, I was always afraid they would let them out. It was stressful for the cats and for us.
Plus, we're both clean freaks, so we may expect too much from a cleaning service!
yes I have from time to time and I find them great. I love to see the house in tip top shape and as I am injured with my hand now I find I cant do things I want to do so why not call the cleaners in.
If I could afford it, I would. My wife has back issues so I do the heavy cleaning. I also have kitchen duty after meals. However, until "my ship" comes in, a maid is not in the picture. If hired, the made or housekeeper would be legal, her income reported and her Social Security taxes paid.
Yes, I would, and I did in the past. Not a live in maid, though. They are great if you tell them specific job, and they only do that and leave!

Should I hire a cleaning service to clean my apartment before I move?I have to move by the end of July. I want to leave no stone un-turned because I really want my deposit back. Is it worth it to hire a cleaning service? It's only for one day.

Now there is Islamophobia, so wondering especially in light of all the hatred for Christians and ridicule of Christians, including here on HubPages, if there should be a new "phobic" called Christianphobic? Of course, then the "hate speech" rule would have to apply to this...

Do you have a maid? Do you think it's worth it?Okay, I am a stay at home WORKING mom and honestly, just don't have it in me some days to fold the laundry or vacuum the rug.

I just came across this article on yahoo! travel. Being someone who has always been rather uptight about staying in hotel rooms, the title caught my eye, "Confessions of a Hotel Housekeeper". She goes on to talk about how well (or not) she actually cleaned the rooms. ...
