    I know this probably has been asked many times, but I hope you don't mind it being asked again. I'm looking for a house cleaner to start in June. I'll be having surgery which will be an 8 week recovery with strict instructions to let myself heal and not do anything. Soooo, if anyone knows of someone and doesn't mind passing along their info, I'd appreciate it.

    I've been happy with Ketty's Maid Service since we moved here in 2000. If you'd like more info I'll go look for her phone number. She is allergic to cats though, so she can't take on clients who have cats.

    Thanks for the info Audrey! I have a cat, so she won't work out, but I'll keep looking.

    I have our house cleaned by a lady named Betty. I've had her for 4 years now and find her very good. Her number is 703-200-5006 . Let her know Soumya recommended her.

    Thanks,
    Soumya

    We've used H&R also. It's $95 for cleaning our 3 level TH. We frequently add the cleaning of the fridge too, for an additional $20.

    So, it sounds like people are having positive experiences with H&R Maids currently? I contacted them about two years ago, and set up an appointment to get a quote. They never showed up, and then I subsequently found feedback on these boards that others had similar experiences. I'm still looking for a company, and wanted to see if they may have improved their customer service over time. Thanks!

    sure! not to take anything from h&r- they did a fantastic job. quality maids equaled h&r in quality, reliability and efficiency. i like to give different local businesses my business when they deserve it, and so i am giving them a stamp of approval and my business for awhile since they really did impress me.

    the house smelled and looked fabulous, they bring their own products, and do a thorough job.

    But did you have any issues with H&R that made you change to the other?

    Is it for a TH? Would you mind if I ask how much you had to pay to these companies?

    Our maid didn't do a good job last time, she used to be good in most of the earlier visits. Lately i have been paying her $90 for a 3 level TH. I may have to switch to a different maid.

    Thanks.

    i've paid between $100 and $150 for a SFH, 3000-ish sqft. 2 floors, 4br, basement is unfinished so they don't touch it.

    both companies bring their own materials but will use something you prefer on request, like we have a granite and stainless cleaner we prefer. both companies leave the house looking and smelling great, no dust anywhere, even the corners are cleaned well.

    i say compare price, use them each once and pick your fave!

    am i switzerland or what?

    Thank you for your quick reply! I use them and like them so I just want to make sure there was nothing I should be aware of.
