What's the going rate for a cleaner these days in/around Fuengirola also any recomendation for a cleaning agency etc?

I guess there are 2 options:-

1. Hire Spanish/Eastern European direct

2. Hire through cleaning agency

You know there is a third option

Hire a Brit and let them do half a job and charge you twice as much!!

Surprised you missed it!!

What nationality does make the best cleaner?

It's very hard to find a person who can both clean and iron!

I've seen people advertising for 10 euros/hour.  I guess you could probably get a Romanian or Pole to do it cheaper.


Read my blog: Spain Money Saving Tips and Offers 

Use TransferWise to send money abroad. A lot cheaper than the bank and other online currency exchanges!.

€10 an hour seems to be the going rate for all (British, South Amercian, Spanish ...)

I always find it amazing! Cleaners make more money that office workers who on avarage hava a wage of €900 for a month which works out to €5.625 an hour!

Looks like my mother was wrong when she said i needed to make sure i had a career to make good money!

I can recomend a good cleaner in Fuengirola, PM me for details.

The minimum wage in Spain is €6.41 an hour, so I think your calculations must be net of tax?

Office workers have paid holidays, pensions and job security.   They also get 14 pay-days a year.   Not many cleaners can boast that.

I can also  recommend a cleaner in Fuengirola. Actually, she is more than a cleaner - she makes minor repairs to things too, and is always sorting things out round the house. And she has a brother who can handle the bigger repair jobs. She charges 10 pounds an hour too but she is very reliable and worth every penny. PM me for details.

10 Euros an hour is definitely the going rate.

The problem is finding good reliable ones.  A friend of ours had one that even started taking some "souvenirs" home after every clean!  She's been through several cleaners already.
