    No, it's an extra $40/hour for hotness.

    Most places I called wanted $50/hour per maid with a minimum of 2 maids and a minimum of 2 hours. I was like WTF? $200 to clean my little house?

    So I ended up finding an independent for $25/hr.

    Ya indp is the way to go, i always found mine on Kijiji and stuck around the 1st couple times they came, $25/hr seems really really high for back home, it was fairly easy to find one for $15 here in edmonton

    Mine didn't go thru my shit. Nor did they clean up after me. Before she came the house was tidy, and everything was in it's place.

    Her job is to Vac/wash floors, Dust, clean bathrooms etc..Shit that i have no interest in doing

    Werd. It's not about being lazy. It's about time management. Right now I'm working 17 hours a day trying to keep up with running a business. If I cut some bullshit out of my life like mopping floors, maybe I can enjoy more of my time off.

    Yep, did a complete gut and reno. She scrubs the floors, bathrooms and misc mess from ongoing reno's every 2nd week. It's not so much a solution for us to avoid cleaning, we still have to vaccum/dust on the daily due to the dog. But it's a big help and gives me a bit more free time to do shit I want to do.

    I really gotta get on the ball with this maid thing. The girlfriends perenta are staying with us this week and I never realized our house could look so clean. We clean it every week, but maids remember to do the shit nobody normally does or wants to do.

    Wow, you're generous. How many hours a week do you end up having her in?

    For that rate, I'd be willing to take the dog for a walk while I was there.
