how much should I have tipped?

I just had my house one-time cleaned by a company. There were four people here (none the owner) and they finished in a little over two hours. I did give a cash tip for each of them, but am wondering if I should have done more. Would it have been a percentage of the total or a flat amount based on the hours or total price?

Re: how much should I have tipped?

  • I have never had someone come clean my house so I am not sure what you should do. I think you did fine. I'd probably just do something flat based on how long they were there.

  • We had our house cleaned... one time deep cleaning to get it ready to sell.  We tipped about 20% (might have been a little more since we didn't have single bills and rounded up).  There were two girls, but we just handed the cash tip to the one that was taking our total payment.  We probably over-tipped but they did a good job.  And I usually tend to over-tip anyway.
