    Any good reliable & safe hourly maid/ cleaning services offered in subang?

    Hi,

    Was wondering if anyone of you would know of or currently engaging any hourly maid / hourly cleaning services in subang?

    what is the average rate being charged for 1 hour?
    Does it include ironing? (our home's ironing laundry basket is really full to the brim)
    Appreciate your knowledge n experience in this.Thanks

    About 4 years ago, it was about rm200 a month (4 times) about 4 hours each. You can get the maid to do any house chore during that time. You have to monitor though. Cant leave em alone.

    AliciaC, are you still looking for the hourly maid? I actually wanted the maid to come only 2 weeks once but I have to look for another house to share the maids for the alternate week as they only providing services for once every week.(4 times a month). Charges is RM180.00 per month. Anyone interested to share?

    Hey Evelyn....

    Do you have the contacts of the maid / agency? Is it a private one or is it agency with foreign workers?

    I have not used them before but they are quite popular, her name is Peggy.
    I only need the maid to come once in 2 weeks instead of coming every week but according to Peggy I have to share with another home so that the other 2 weeks the maid can go to another home to fully utilised the one month.
    You get what I mean? Pls PM me with your contact and we can talk through phone. If you are interested, we may start this week.
    AliciaC, you are paying for RM97 once a month only for 4-5 hours is a bit expensivelah. Normally should be about RM50 per trip.

    i think the problem with agencies is that the cleaners they employ are salaried maids. This means they don't really have a reputation to take care of, and the risk of theft is quite great. Also, they probably are quite likely to give u different cleaners every now and then, right? this happened to me a few yrs ago when i used the services of one of these agencies.

    the best thing is to get a private cleaner, preferably one who comes highly recommended. she will have everything to lose if her reputation is spoilt bt theft, or if she doesnt do a good job.

    i have one such indonesian lady who cleans my house - RM45 a week, and RM10 extra for ironing. Unfortunately her weekly schedule is completely full! She could barely fit in a friend of mine recently.

    Sorry for posting this and not offering you a solution, but I thought you might wanna get an idea of pricing and also my view on the agencies.

    The agency is Auntie's Cleaning Services S/B, they only cover USJ area and about 7-8 years in business. Her contact: 012-2253350 Peggy.
    According to her, the same maid will be coming to your home for cleaning everytime unless the maid has went back home town or on leave.

    One of the forumers posted this contact before. Madam Indra 016 744 6010. The Indonesian maid, who arrived on a bicycle, did a good job of cleaning the house. Hourly rate of 25 if I remember correctly. Didn't do laundry, at least we didn't require it.

    The maid will normally come for 4 hours & if is 2 maids then will be 2 hours for RM45-RM50. If hourly rate is RM25, then it will cost a lot
    I called Mdm Indra before for my initial cleaning of my new house and she charged for RM200 but Peggy willing to charge me for only RM50 which she follows the normal rate.

    AliciaC, sorry that Peggy don't cover SJ,SS area. You may try to call Madam Indra but not sure whether she cover that area. I think she charged about RM45-RM50 for 4 hours for one maid as my colleague is using her service.
    Cheers.
