Personally, though, I would go with a company because you can more easily invetigate the background of the company. You can talk to other customers, you can see if anything is posted about them on websites like Angie's List. You could go to your local tv station's website to find out if the consumer affairs reporter has ever done a story on the company. I think it would be a lot harder to find out information about an individual.With a company you have less control over who comes to clean. You might get someone good for a while, then they move on and you don't know who will come in their place. Even if the company as a whole gets good reviews, a single person can be disastrous.With an individual you can talk directly to the people who use them, and have a good grasp of what the problems might be. Even if the person who is recommended is too busy to take an additional job, she might know someone who she can recommend. In fact, I have a cousin who cleans houses, who is essentially hired by another housecleaner to take on additional houses. The strange part of it is that the other housecleaner is the ex-wife of my cousin's husband.Nancy
