does anyone here have a cleaner?

the reason that i am asking is that it is an option for me, a brief outline is

i work monday to friday either 8:30 - 16:30 or 9 - 17:30
i get in about 30-90 minutes after i finish (depending on where i finish) so am usually in at 6pm whereby i cook me tea, relax for an hour then train, im usually finished training/showering/etc by 21:30 (cant start cleaning then)

and i work at weekends meaning i dont get to sleep till about 4am saturday and sunday morning, meaning i dont get up till about lunchtime

does anyone have one?

    I have had a cleaner and been a cleaner, never overly happy with having one beause i want things done exactly the way I want it done, so easier to do it yourself.

    Sorry I have no advice on how to find a good cleaner!
    But I can say that ironing is not necessary, I never never do any, it's all in the folding and hanging, or you can just wear skin tight stretchy stuff that flattens itself on you.
    Does that help?
    No?

    I've had cleaners in the past and would happily have one again but being home all day I can't justify it. If they don't do things to your standard then you specifically tell them how you would like things done and if they continue to ignore you then you get another one. I've been fortunate that 2 out of the 4 I've used have been even better at cleaning than I could/would have done myself

    lol no unfortunately skin tight stuff is not an option

    at the moment as soon as the washer is finished i hand the clothes up on one of those inside dryer things and depending on the weather put the heating on (its just infront of the heater) this seems to work on most shirts but some are a pain

    i know a lad who's currently serving time but he had a cleaner and was paranoid she was robbing him

    cheers kitty to be honest i cant see my standards being too hard to keep my mum has offered to drive 34 miles to clean me house but i declined

    I have never had a cleaner.

    I do all that malarki myself, although I must confess that I have never ironed anything in my life. I just put it on a hanger and it straightens itself out.

    Worth trying a couple out before you settle.

    There is a vast quality difference between cleaners - some are amazing, some rush around.

    Also, make sure it's someone you like. You're going to spend a lot of time together at various points, so you want to be able to both trust them and like them. Nice to hire someone who ends up becoming a friend too.

    Many people have a 9-5 (and much longer hours) job on here mate, and they manage it. How come 21.30 is too late to start cleaning?

    young kid at the house that is connected to mine, i make noise up until i finish in the gym (at about 9) and then do not

    i understand the point you are trying to make and i do partly see your point, although i suspect some have other halves that do the tasks (fella and mrs's) or do not do the second job with the unsociable hours
    just a thought

    I had a cleaner. She drove a very new and very expensive BMW. I thought it was a bit odd.
    She was also a prostitute.

    I found this out because I hid my video camera and filmed her when she came round to do the cleaning. She did the cleaning and we were happy with the standard of her work but on the tape I recorded her taking a call fro a prospective client. It was all a bit surreal, her plumping the cushions and running a duster over the work surfaces whilst taking about prices for A and O....

    Suspicions were raised when I found a very large pair of lacy knickers which took some explanation to my then girlfriend.

    Trading standards should have been involved and prosecuted her because her description over the phone of what she looked like beared no resemblance to how she actually looked

    A lot of it will be how he values his time. Getting a cleaner in means he pays a little more to avoid doing something he doesn't like, and has more time to do what he does like. We had a cleaner at the old house, but don't have one now because my fiance likes doing it herself (weird lol). If we moved to a bigger place I'd consider getting one again, just because I'd prefer to be working or chilling out.

    You can also monetise your time to an extent too - if it costs X pounds per hour to hire a cleaner, and you earn Y pounds an hour doing whatever you do, then in some instances its "cheaper" to hire a cleaner because it frees up time for you to do what you're good at.

    I'd consider one of these:

    mcl



    Ace. Doesnt clean the stairs though does it?

    For £2500 I would rather higher a team of scantily clad ladies to do it. Wouldnt last as long but would be much better viewing.
