ironing for some families take up bulk of the time.
if part time is rushing for time, then there will be lots of things dropped or scratched...mum's vacuum cleaner has changed several parts because the part time pulls the vacuum cleaner to the max as she is lazy to switch to another plug. fans are scratched. mum mainly needs need her to vacuum and mop, clean windows.

I did not realize that part-time maids are more expensive compared to live in until I read this thread. You might be able to save money if you get live in maids but I would still choose to get part-time maids. They don't need to stay w/ your family all the time so you'll have more privacy with your family. For me privacy is just an important thing.

Some PT helpers drag yr time to earn more or do a slip shod job to rush to ano h’hold. If the PT leave you w/o notice u’re stuck with nobody to clean yr home.

It's hard to get the trust of the maids nowadays.. be it live in or part-time maids..sometimes it's better to do the cleaning myself
