Tidying and regular cleaning upkeep needed for an active household with children and pets.
We have two boys - an active and highly imaginative 4-year-old and 5-month-old - two lab puppies, a 1-year-old beagle, and two 1-year-old cats. My husband's schedule changes weekly but usually entails long hours. I can be somewhat flexible with days and times, but ideally would prefer someone twice weekly for 2-3 hours each visit. Weekly tasks would include tidying, laundry, general kitchen cleaning, vacuuming and sweeping. I prefer someone who is comfortable with providing infant care.
In addition to these weekly visits, I would like a more thorough 3-4 hour cleaning (mopping, dusting, etc) once a month.
Depending on the fit, I may be able to also offer another couple hours weekly to read and play with my 4-year-old.
