If you think a professional is expensive, you will be surprised when you hire an amateur. Although the underground market seems affordable at the beginning, it’s not so in the long run. You will have to spend a lot of time hiring a cheaper service to clean your home. Most of the time, you have to find a housekeeper, check his/her background, train the individual, and provide all the supplies and equipment required for the cleaning. Although these people claim they are independent contractors, you will have to manage and pay their payroll taxes. The savings you get is really not worth the risk. On the other hand, non-professional cleaners have given the industry a bad name by hiring illegal workers and not paying taxes.
