Cost of household help

Can't Post | Private Reply
About five years ago, we had a small house in San Antonio Tlayacapan, and had a local woman who came to clean it every week, which took her several hours. For this we paid her MXP$200 a week, which some people told us was excessive. How much would we have to pay for such a service today?

It seems the going rate here in Mazatlan - at least among the foreign population - averages about $50 Mx per hr., depending on what is done.

Our housekeeper works two days a week, about 12 hours total. We pay her 700 pesos a week. That's the going rate in the DF.

We went with a maid service company called Spring Clean in the lakeside area (our place is in Ajijic). They send two women for four hours every other week and charge 400 pesos. They bring their own cleaning supplies and the company pays the IMSS, the aguinaldos and everything else involved in having employees. If we're not happy with someone they send, they send a different maid the next time. When we are going to be gone, we inform them and we are not charged. We've had them for over six years now and are very happy with the service. Their rates may be higher for new customers.

We do not provide keys to them. This eliminates some problems others have had, which I will leave to your imagination. (lol)
