    Hiring a Housecleaner...

    Advertisements
    So I have a cleaning lady here right now, cleaning up the house for our pre-move out inspection next week. She's super sweet and doesn't charge an excessive amount.

    My husband and I got to thinking last night, that a cleaning person probably makes a lot of money, possibly under the table even.

    Say one averages $200 a house and does an average of 6 houses a week. That's a minimum of $1200 a week. If that person works 50 weeks out of the year....that's 60 grand a year! Not too bad!

    My mom's friend cleans. Sometimes you have a good week, and sometimes you don't. Some people are regulars, some aren't. Usually that's why they charge a minimum.

    Yeah, I guess depends on where one lives too. I imagine the clientele is good, when living in a prime military arearea. My cleaning lady, today, was an active duty military spouse.

    I wish! If we moved to AZ, I'd be closer to my family in San Diego.

    We're moving to Florida though. Gonna visit me?!?

    An independent cleaning person probably makes a decent amount but I'm pretty sure the folks that work for cleaning services, such as Merry Maids, get paid around minimum wage. At least the author of Nickle and Dimed did.
