    We have a cleaning service once every 2 weeks for our apartment, which is about 900 sq ft. (1 bedroom/1 bath)

    Once Fiance finishes his phd, and we have more money, we would love to use a cleaning service.  Having them come in once every two weeks to do some of the stuff we really don’t want to do (like toilets, deep scrubbing, etc) would be awesome.  FI’s parents have one and it seems to work pretty well!

    I would never use a cleaning service because I just wouldn’t want strangers in our home.  Our house is only 1900 sq ft, plus I don’t work, so hiring someone to clean our house doesn’t make sense.

    I can’t imagine ever hiring a housecleaner and pretty sure Fiance feels the same way, it’s just one of those things that never would cross our minds based on how we were raised.  Then again our house is kind of a sty so maybe we need one 😉

    We have someone come every 3weeks. Our townhouse is about 1000 square feet. My husband indulges me. It would take me at least a day and a half to clean and it wouldn’t be nearly as clean as they get it.  I tidy up every few days and do all the laundry myself.

    I’m unmarried and live in a 1br/1ba apartment.  My boyfriend and I have the same cleaning lady, lol!

    She used to come every other week, but I’m trying to space it out a bit more.

    I’m not a slob, and I can wipe down a countertop myself, but I don’t do dusting or floors or any real cleaning.

    I haven’t let her do my laundry yet, though.  I’m particular about my delicates, lol!

    We do not, but I don’t work. Stay-At-Home Mom. So we have no use for one.

    2800 sq ft is your demarker? I don’t think I have ever, in my entire life, seen a home that large. Whoa. Avg size here is 1000 sq ft.

    I would love to have a cleaning person vacuum/dust/mop/clean bathrooms. It just seems like a waste of money given that we only have 1600 sq ft (even if that is quite large for the area). If I had over 2800 sq ft, I could understand needing one. But, on the other hand, I don’t thing anyone actually NEEDS that much space. Kind of bordering on absurd.

    We are a little over 1800 sq. ft. and I would die without help with cleaning, which I hate. Every week or every other week depending mostly on her schedule.

    When I’m frequently sick and cannot clean on a regular basis, then we have a cleaning lady come.

    Yes we have a cleaning lady every 2 weeks that comes in. Our home is 3700 sqft and we dont have the time due to the fact we both work 50 to 75 hours a week pretty busy. If we didnt work so often. We wouldnt have to hire anyone to come into our home we would just do it ourselves.
