I do because they don''t see much of the money; the maid service does. When they are their own company they see more of the money. Those company''s give the maids a very little amount so it is nice if you do so. I usually give about $5 each (which I only had 2 girls cleaning).
If you''re using a company like Merry Maids, it''s true, the Maids who actually clean your house will see less than half the money you pay. BUT, those companies have a fair amount of turnover in personnel. Chances are, you won''t be having the same Maids (people) all the time. Many people start out with a larger company to learn the tricks of the trade and then start their own Cleaning Business.
If you have an easy job, such as a ranch style house, I''d be less inclined to tip. But if you have a multi level home with lots of wood work or trim to clean,........ Or if the Maids will doing things like windows,.......... I''d be inclined to tip. Might insure you''ll get a better cleaning job each time.
I have had maid services and I always tip them. If I hire someone to clean my house (that doesn''t work for a service) which is what we have now, I don''t tip them. But I give them a little something at Christmas. I wouldn''t give the maid services maids much at Christmas though. Maybe just double the tip.
