Appointing a cleaner to regularly clean your house can be quite a task. We run through some of the cleaner tasks you need to think about before going out to look.
Decide what tasks should be done on a regular basis, and also prioritise so that when you detail them out to the cleaner you can say 'If you run out of time, these are the most important I need completing'. So make a list of the tasks and mark each one with the time you would hope he/she takes to complete. Then tot up to see how many hours are needed.
Normally a cleaner will dust and vacuum each room, clean the bathrooms and kitchen, mop any tiled floors and sweep any wodden floors. But some cleaners may cover other areas such as cleaning the windows, removing webs from the ceilings, and polishing furniture.
Also some cleaners will take on 'projects'. So you could allocate an hour of time for the cleaner to focus on a one-off peice of work you want completed, such as a full intense cleaning of your bathroom (cleaning the grout, polishing the tiles, sparkling up the window frames, etc). Or in the living room, an intense cleaning of the sofas.
