I don’t have a maid, but if I did I wouldn’t mind them tidying my room. If I’m paying someone to clean my house, I don’t want to be cleaning too!

@rosworms:  Lol! 

@forshure:  Oh, to have this dilemma! I’m just jealous, I wish I could have a maid to help me move stuff and look after me when I was ill

This is such a random post based on hypotheticals. Our house cleaner cleans the master bedroom and the bathroom. I can’t imagine referring to any part of my house as sacred.

@rosworms:  I had to laugh at that!

Sorry, OP, I think you’re kind of in the minority asking about people’s opinions on what rooms the maid is allowed to clean.

Never considered asking our cleaning lady not to clean our master bedroom, so yes, she cleans in there.  I also wouldn’t call it a “sacred” space.  It’s just another room of our house…it just happens to be one of the ones where we get it on sometimes. Tongue Out

I don’t have a housekeeper right now — my parents did when I grew up (she came once a week) and yes, she cleaned everything. What’s the point of hiring someone if she won’t clean your entire home?

If you’re worried about her “finding” something, just make sure its tucked away or locked up (my parents did have issues with some people they hired stealing prescriptions or jewelery so you do need to be careful, and if there’s other stuff like, I don’t know, sex toys or something, just hide them!)

Yea, I don’t understand this one.

Do people even use the term “maid” anymore?  It sounds so old-fashioned and kind of derogatory.  Also, I’m pretty sure his/her job description does NOT include fetching things for his/her sick employer.  That being said, if you do get a house cleaner, you can have him/her clean whatever you want and not clean whatever you want.

If I am ever so lucky to have a cleaning lady, yes, she will clean my master bedroom.

Ahh…so these are the dilemmas that keeps that top 1% up tossing and turning all night. Must be nice! Lol

But hypothetical speaking, I’ll answer. No I would not have a problem with my maid cleaning the master bedroom. If she can scrub the human waste from the toilet stool then I reckon she can clean the master bedroom. It is what I’m paying her for…to clean my house. I personally feel my entire home is “sacred” so if she’s cleaning one room, she might as well clean the others.

@forshure:  Interesting question. We are in the minority in our social/friendship group for not having a maid/cleaning person. At the moment I just prefer to all the cleaning/ironing but if we have kids and I find it to hard to keep up with my chores I will get some help. 

I imagine they will clean our bedroom but we have a safe it in where we put all our important documents/valuables normally so I wouldb’t be worried about things going missing.

Also I am used to my mother going into our bedroom as when she comes over here she goes in there to find our cats. I find this accutely annoying but it has prepared me to always have the room in a presentable condition with nothing risqué that could be found.

OP, it sounds like you’re talking about a live-in nanny/housekeeper rather than a house cleaner, right? I feel like it would be ridiculous to pay that much money for someone to not clean your whole house – I would think we’re talking at least a $50-60k salary with health benefits and vacation.

Where are you from? Did you grow up with live-in domestic assistance?
