I'm interested in finding out how much maid services charge. Hourly or flat rate? How often do you have them come? Do you use a service or an individual? What do they do?

I use an individual who is VERY reasonable. I have a 1500 sq. ft. home. She does the floors, bathrooms, dusting, etc... for $40. I have her come every other week. We love it! Good luck and God Bless!

I recommend that you write down what services you want done. For example, if you only want your kitchen and bathrooms done it may be less than the full service price for things you don't need such as vacuuming or sweeping. Have them come every two or three weeks. Always use a professional service such as T. C. Services. See for more tips on this topic

I paid Merry Maids 85$ for a 1800 sq foot house and had them come every two weeks to do the whole house and every week to do bathrooms and kitchen ($40). Most companies will come out and give you a quote for what you want done and you can bascially chose as much or little as you want. The price generally goes down with the frequency of the cleanings.
