In The Netherlands, many people have someone who cleans their house 1-2 times a week, but it is not easy to find a cleaning lady you trust. Here are a couple of tips to help you:
Ask your neighbours if they can recommend someone
Ask the property owner or relocation agency if they can recommend someone
Check the information boards in the supermarkets. (They sometimes have names and telephone numbers of cleaning ladies in the neighborhood.)
Check websites such as Marktplaats (search for huishoudelijke hulp)
Before handing over your keys, make sure that you make at least two referral checks!
The going rate for house cleaning is between €8 and €12 per hour.
