    @nickels:  Probably depends from person to person. Your best bet is to ask her.

    Professional companies bring their own… not sure about a “freelancer” like this though.

    Each company is different. I supply the products, but not the tools such as vacuum and mop. My SIL pays more but supplies nothing. I would ask them if they can bring their stuff, since it’s a one day clean there is no way you would be able to have all the cleaning supplies they want.

    each company or person is different.  more expensive maid services typically will supply everything.  usually individuals will use your products.

    She will ask what you prefer – we told our cleaning lady it didn’t matter and she uses a combination of products she brings and the ones we have available.

    I have never heard of anyone not bringing their own.

    Wow, I am surprised how many people said yes. I thought all cleaning services would have products of their own, that they prefer to use.

    We don’t have a big company (just 2 sisters)  They supply products except for anything special we use like our wood floor cleaner and they use our vacuum.

    I just assumed they bring their own by default and only use yours if you specifically ask them to. (For green, organic, allergic reasons, etc.)

    I would have thought the same as Sasha2011 (they bring their own, but use yours if you ask)

    ETA: it wouldn’t hurt to ask though, so you know what you’re signing up for!

    A lot of people are really picky about what chemicals get used in their home, so many companies give you the choice. If you want all natural “green” products, you’re likely going to have to provide them. If you don’t care, i’m sure there are companies out there that provide everything.
