    Same as any business. You have an office-you pay rent, phone bills, electric bills. You pay the employees and now you need to pay for insurance for each one and on the building in case one of the cleaners falls or gets hurt while working. Add up all the bills. Very expensive so they need to raise prices or there is no profit.

    Because they know people are too lazy to find time to clean their homes.

    Because you are not just paying the wages of the maid but commission to the company who employs them. From my own experience of such companies, they earn at least as much, often more than the person who does the cleaning.

    The cleaning person wants a decent salary and the company they work for also want some of your money , so you are paying for both.

    They want to eat. You know how it is. Give a new born Baby a Bottle, and it wants to eat EVERY day.

    Everybody wants to get paid.

    Because they can be. Maid service is a luxury. Any maid service offering a bonded/insured product isn't going to be cheap.

    Then again, you can find a cheaper service that puts drug addicts in every room of your home.
