I really don't like it much but we have to do it because it is not also good to see a messy house. I just wonder about those people who work as house cleaner. House cleaning business is really good because lots of home owners are busy and have no time to clean their house so they have to pay somebody to do it. Do you like to do that job?

I do house cleaning at a hospice and I had some of the nurses ask me if I wanted to clean their house for pay. I always turned them down cause between cleaning for a job and cleaning my own place I don't want to see any more dirt, plus I like to spend my free time doing fun things not extra work.

That's right!! it is very stressful to see more dirt from the place you are working plus another area. But some people will just do it even if they don't like it just because they need to earn more.

That's true and it's good money but I just don't feel comfortable in someone elses house. I would feel like a slave or maid ...if you have a house clean it

Hello bebs I like this kind of business should this is applicable in our place. I know this kind of business is really good source of living in the states because I have a lots of friends who did this. First, they were employed on this business until time came they created their own already as a proprietor. I say not applicable in our place because we are not really as busy people as in Europe or in the States therefore any member of the family can clean their own house at the appropriate time e.g Saturdays and Sundays ..

that's right!! people in the US are very busy working and that they have no time to clean even their own house. That is why they hired people to clean up their mess.. Yup it is a good business here in US.. but it is risky too.. because if something will happen to the things inside the house, you as a cleaner is responsible for it.

Hello bebs yes that's a big responsibility of the business proprietor. I guess the best way is to let the homeowner and the worker to sign all the facilities inside accepting it before start working on it and after finish cleaning the sign documents would be given to the homeowner for the checking and let the house owner to sign clearance as job fulfillment.

I have heard people who like to clean houses or make beds, but that´s not my idea of fun. But, on the other hand, I love to cook and garden and many people think I´m crazy to bend down to talk to a plant. I like my house clean, specially kitchen and bathroom.

Well, that is also another talent.. gardening and cooking. I love gardening too but it's not really my hobby.. I can't spend long in my garden.. nor in the kitchen.. I will cook but not like others who are very creative and really love to spend time in the kitchen cooking. I just know what I really like.. hahaha

hell no i don't like it very much, it's kinda tiring and spent lots of time to doing it, i have a maid in my house so every house cleaning was done by my maid.. i only do the kitchen and bathroom parts, sometimes. when i have lots of time to spent and have that kind of mood to do it. :D

Cleaning other people's houses for pay is very humbling. It is a good money though but dealing with dirt and smell? it is awful!!!

I HATE housecleaning! With passion! I just don't like cleaning but I have no choice if I want to maintain a clean house--at least a clean room to sleep in every night.

I really do not like to clean. I am however very picky about how clean my house has to be. I has to be spotless and if its not it drives me crazy. I also use products that makes it easy. I love the swiffer dusters, mops, sweepers, and etc. I also use chemicals that help brake up grime without little to no scrubbing. For example I like comet. I just sprinkle wet a sponge and do a light scrub when I need to and let it soak for a few minutes. Then I wipe away and there you are a clean tub, sink, or were ever I happen to need to clean. As for doing this for money I do not think I could do it for a living. If I clean for extra cash it will be only for friends or family because of the high chance of getting sued for breaking or loss items.

Oh yea, sometimes I help my friend cleaning her house even if it is not my thing to clean house but because she needs help and she pay me so, I do it. It is not easy to clean.. just today, I clean my house and this is the second day of cleaning and still I am not done.

I do have those moments when i do enjoy house cleaning. It gives pride to the home we live in. More often than not, I find house cleaning to be just a chore of a weekly routine.

I have a schedule for house cleaning -daily, weekly, biweekly, monthly, annually and this schedule is followed by those who do my chores. Ofcourse I need to supervise and when the job is done I feel happy to see my place in ship shape order.

I hate it. I hate it even more because I have to go to work every day, then come home from my job and do all the housework. And my days off work are always spent doing the bigger things that I don't have time to do on the days I work. I will say my house is not immaculate. Its good enough that I'm not embarrassed to have company over, but I don't put a lot of effort into keeping it spotless and sparkling like some people do. My house is clean...but definitely "lived in."

hahaha.. we are the same. I hate to clean all the time. I just clean when it is really needed. Some people do it regularly to make their place spotless.. I hate doing that.

I don't really like cleaning but I would do it as a job if I had to. Their are much worst jobs I can think of besides cleaning.

That's right too. I agree that there are other types of job that is worst than cleaning houses. Well, If I have to choose between cleaning houses and cleaning the patients in the nursing home? I will just do the cleaning of houses..

I haven't had a job where cleaning was the only thing that I did, but I have had jobs where cleaning was one part of the job. I think it was nice to do a mix of cleaning and other things, because I think that it would be a little hard to spend all of the time on cleaning. I don't really enjoy to clean my own house, but it has to be done whether I enjoy it or not. My husband once suggested that we pay someone to do the cleaning in our home, because he thought that it would be easier for me if I didn't have to spend my time on cleaning, but we can't afford that. I am able to clean our home on my own, so we don't need to hire someone to do the cleaning.

yes, if the house is not that big and you are not working full time, maybe you can do the cleaning by yourself. But if you have a full time job and you have kids to take care of.. it is really hard to do everything by yourself specially the house cleaning. Some people enjoyed cleaning their house, I am not.

I like cleaning...but sometimes yes it's tiring and i easily end up not finishing the cleaning itself sometimes...cause somehow i don't like it as well... Oh, I haven't heard in our place if there are such jobs... If so, well then it can also be a modus operandi of those who want to get in easily to those houses with lots of jewelries or gadgets and appliances they can soon want to break into... That's why I think, there's no such thing in here...

yeah, there are some people who like cleaning in fact they do it as a business. They are cleaning other people's house and they are paid per job. That's what I heard from a friend here. Some are paid by hour. That's what it is in United States and Europe and maybe in some other places.

Oh I hear ya! :D.....I hate cleaning,too, but it's gotta get done...but I've learned to get products to "make my life easier"....things like Swiffer dusters Extend-a-Clean for bath...a polisher cleaner good for all surfaces, use of Microfiber cloths great for cleaning, MagicEraser that works miracles, Swiffer WetJet for floors.but I'm not good at washing windows, my hubby is so much better than me, never any streaks and I'm constantly watching him how he does it, but I just can't do it as well. So that's his only job.

hahaha... even if you have lots of products to use it is still not very inspiring to take out all junks. Anyway, when everything is done, you can feel the fresh of your environment when it is clean. But I hate cleaning.. but then I have to do it.

It is my mother who cleans my houses and I don’t have to worry much about it. She cleans each of the rooms well and she also make sure that the room is clean. So I am free from the cleaning duty.

Housing cleaning is just a work, we should not look it down. If I don't go to college, I don't mind doing that job. As you say, lots of people don't have time to do house cleaning, I think the job will be popular.

Really I don't love house cleaning. I feel that it is a very boring duty. I feel well tired to clean all the rooms with my hands but I feel it is very interesting the floor with vacuum cleaners but I just sue them once in a month. I mostly used to clean the rooms with those machines and I enjoy cleaning with them.

I don't mind any job as long as it pays and I can do it I guess house owners these days would grab any job they could so that they can keep up with the mortgage so often they don't have time for the house and kids
