get your whole house cleaned in 1/4 of the time, a few ladies come and do the whole house in the time one lady sits in your house for 6 hrs. I am using them for 3 yrs now. they bring their own supplies as well. also very reliable (at least mine is..) since they have many ladies working so if one is sick you still get your cleaning help

Cleaning crew is more expensive, doesn’t usually know your house, your preferences, kashrut etc ( if you want dishes washed etc) but can do a good deep clean ( can move beds, furniture etc which one person can’t do) and is quicker than one person.

You said the exact pros that I was thinking of!
How many hours do you use them for?
Do they change linen?
Is there anything they won’t do?
Do you use them 1x a week?

Cream typically don’t do internal work
No cleaning refrigerators
Changing linen
Wiping down inside of closet
Help in kitchen if you need an extra hand
Some don’t do windows

But they are in and out in short amount of time

They also usually charge by house and
Can be more expensive than a cleaning lady per hour

they don't charge me by hr. I pay a flat rate that we made up 3 yrs ago to clean my whole house
I know they went up since up then a bit. I pay $60 for my 3000 sq ft house, 2 floors. my neighbor started after me pays $75. 2-3 ladies usually abt 2 hrs. they do everything surface clean (bathrooms, vaccumming, windows, dusting, counters,stoves, sinks , change all garbage) no laundry/ironing. every few wks they change all the linen. I won't say its completely perfect, but its reliable, and decent. Now I started twice a wk. I pay $35 for my main floor every friday morn (few ladies 45 minutes abt). so total 95 wk I pay. Lakewood area. not comf publicizing number here. but you can pm me if want their number.

if you want them specifically do something extra like fridge, high chair or scrub moldings I offer an exra $10-$15 and they do it.
