When it comes to choosing a domestic helper for helping you take some of your load off, many people wonder about what they need to consider when trying to decide between hiring part time and full time maids. This is why I will be sharing with you some pros and cons for both sides and guide you into choosing what works best for you!
Consider Your Space:
The size of your home (studio, apartment or villa) plays an important role in choosing the right help who will suit your needs without crowding you in your own home. If you have a small home, a part time helper will probably be the better option for you.
Consider Your Budget:
When hiring a full time/live-in helper, you will need to commit to monthly payments and that might take away from other activities you can do with your family and loved ones if you are on a tight budget. Hiring a part time maid to come once or twice a week can be controlled and can help you limit expenses.
Consider Your Family:
If you have a big family and you enjoy hosting occasional dinners, birthday parties and so on, it is usually better to have a live in maid to help you prepare pre and post your events, otherwise you will be paying a lot more for part time maids.
Consider Your Time:
Do you have time to train and retrain your part time maid? If not, then you should probably hire full time help since they learn your way of doing things and keep doing it continuously as opposed to teaching each new part time maid about your preferences and cleaning routines.
Consider Where You Live:
If you live in a far away place or hard to reach area, you will need to pay extra money for your part time helper’s transportation thus having a full time maid would be economically the better option in the long run.
