Home Cleaning Services

One thing I have to admit is that the husband and I are definitely not neat freaks.

Yes, we love having our home looking nice and cosy but we are not like those who are very particular about every single corner of the house (sometimes I wish one of us is like that!).

We are also , honestly, very busy people. Our workload often spill into the nights and weekends. During peak periods, we can go without much of a social life as we persevere to finish our job , which fortunately or unfortunately, is also our greatest passion.

Thus, we have toyed with the idea of a part-time maid more than a few times. Both of us are violently against the idea of having a full-time maid staying with us so a part-time one is the next best thing.

After months, or probably years, of toying with that idea, I finally succumbed a few months back because  I could not take it anymore! Honestly , no energy left to do those tiring house chores ! (simple ones are still ok...)

So I went online and decided on Domestic One Home Services.

Initially, I wanted to go for the fortnightly services. That would mean paying $288 for agent fee and then $15 per hour for a minimum of 4 hrs per session - sounds very reasonable. However, husby reminded me that this superbly busy period will cease towards end of school semester and we may not need such a frequent home cleaning service. Finally , I decided to just opt for an ad-hoc service.

It was $110 for a 4-hr session. I was satisfied with how the housekeeper cleaned my house so a month later, I called again.

This time round, I was informed the price had been increased to $120 . So expensive lah...but no choice , it is something we really need at this moment. This time round, it was a younger lady but she was just as efficient as the first one. I have to say I am happy with the services of  Domestic One.

The third time, I decided to try out pinkmaids.sg , just because they are way cheaper - $80 for 4 hours. I was a little skeptical - what if the housekeeper was not as good as the first two?  But to my pleasant surprise, she was great as well! They all have their own strengths and weaknesses but as long as my house is really clean after that , I am happy!

However, the boss of pinkmaids is this really rude man. I do not want to go into details but omg , I really could not believe that anyone in the service industry could be so so rude! I may not return to them just because I do not want to experience the same rudeness again. A pity , isn't it? You have a great staff working for you but you lose customers just because you are short-tempered like that . Geez.....

I'll probably call back Domestic One for the next round of house cleaning .... just hope they won't increase their prices again!

Just a little peek into my humble home....

Lots of red and black!
