Hi All, I am looking for a temporary cleaner for 4 months and have been looking at various links. Could anyone give me some of their thoughts on Amahs on Wheels ? I also found that NTUC provides a Domestic Cleaning service. Has anyone used them at all ? It appears that using NTUC might be more reliable as they are a big company or am I missing something ? Any help would be appreciated.
Just a caution with noticeboard ads/gumtree, pls do check it's a legal cleaner (e.g. not someone else's maid moonlighting - ask to see the IC card).martincymru wrote:Try notice boards at Cold Storage or NTUC Parkway Parade.
They often have adverts.
Big company usually more expensive and not so personal.
I did think about noticeboards etc but I would like to have some sort of safety net in case of any issues but I notice that a lot of companies ask for a fee of around 500 dollars and that all I get for that is they put me in touch with a cleaner who I then deal with directly. Is this the norm in Singapore ?

Yes, the recent clampdown on foreign manpower has left many companies in the lurch. Your option is to hire a Singaporean citizen or PR to clean on part-time basis, that if, any one of them is willing. You can try asking around in the neighbourhood if your neighbours know of any local 'aunty' who can do it for you.
