Cleaning/maid service rates? - UPDATE
So my new apartment still smells like smoke after spraying/air fresheners. I've come to the conclusion that I actually have to wash the walls, and I want it done before I move my stuff in. I have a herniated disc that limits my mobility at the moment and the length of time I can do things, so I thought I'd hire a service to do it for me, especially (and maybe most importantly) because I am extremely busy right now. I have someone coming to give me an estimate tomorrow. They explained their procedure and the chemicals they use--there's a process they use to clean a smoker's apartment. They charge $24/hour/person. Is this outrageous? It's a company, not a person just doing this on the side.
