The survey polls users on how much money they would be willing to spend for a single cleaning service from a local maid company. What the survey finds is that the solid majority of homeowners would expect to pay somewhere between $50 and $100 for a single cleaning.

At the same time, they know that some maid services might overcharge, and it is important not to get taken advantage of.” is an online directory of some of the nation’s most prestigious, best-reviewed housekeeping companies. The directory allows users to search for local cleaning services by city, and to compare reviews as they seek to find the best option.
