Following these insider tips from cleaning experts will not only help ensure your status as a decent human being, they can also help you save some cash. The pre-clean is essential to saving you money and respect. Washing dirty dishes, throw out the takeout containers, and pick up that pile of clothes may be something for the housekeeper to do, keep in mind the average charge per hour of a housecleaner is $30so if they spend 30 minutes decluttering your house, that's an extra $15—or $390 for a year’s worth of twice-a-month cleanings out the window. Make sure to give specific instructions if the bathroom baseboards need attention, tell the house cleaner.  That way you are not setting yourself up for disappointment. Make sure to allow the proper amount of time. If you house is extra dirty, be honest with your cleaner and they're be honest with you on the time, so you are not surprised at the bill. Finally, if you decide to keep your housecleaner on a regular basis, it doesn't mean you can quit cleaning altogether.  Simple DIY tasks include wiping down the front of the cabinets after cooking, squeegeeing the shower, and sweeping the kitchen floor. Integrating them into your day-to-day routine can save you a few bucks on your bill.
