Just need to vent for a minute lol.
Had a cleaner I liked personally, she was just too quick for cleaning. I asked her to be sure she could spend at least 4 hours minimum in the home. I was paying an hourly rate. She would come for an hour sometimes, leave sheets in the wash, even after I asked her not too.
Got another cleaner. Very nice thorough. She wanted to charge 350 per clean. 3 bedroom house 2 bathrooms. Then said she would charge half for 6 guests and under. Just said ok. Really liked her and gave her cohost credentials. I wanted to be up front and transparent with number of guests.
We have a mix of guest numbers. I’ve adjusted my extra guest fee to try and somewhat accommodate this crazy pricing structure.
Today I have 4 guests checking in for a 5 night stay… The guest just nicely messaged and stated she was having 2 people stay 2 nights who live an hour away. She wanted to be completely transparent.
My cleaner immediately messages me and tells me 6 guests now- her fee will go from 175-350. Now I thought it was over 6. She says no 6 and over.
I told her I wanted more of a tiered pricing structure. I guess it really rubbed me wrong the way she messaged immediately!
Ok I am ready for any beat down you wanna give .
Is this pricing structure out of control? I know I agreed to it! And am I wrong to be perturbed that she messaged me right away for 175 more dollars over these guests staying two nights?
She is making between 1500-2000 a month on just cleaning the property. So it isn’t like she’s a once a month person.
