I'm not sure what's customary when hiring a maid / cleaning service, and I wanted to ask here if anyone had tips for me? Some of the questions that come to mind are:
- Do you have the maid come over for an interview, or do you only do that virtually?
- How acceptable is it to turn down a maid after an interview? Should you interview multiple and choose between them, or pick one and only turn them down if there's a big red flag?
- What's the best way to ask for references, especially for a lot of freelance maids that won't have a Yelp / Google reviews page?
- When discussing pay, how mush should I budget for a tip on top of the regular pay?
