1. List it
Prior to welcoming your maid into your home, perhaps drawing up a list with your spouse might be a good idea. Your list could include the duties she is supposed to do, your expectations of her performance, house rules, etc. It is important to be as detailed as possible so that your maid doesn’t have trouble understanding what is expected of her. Keeping a copy and handing her another copy enables both, you and your maid, to use the list as a check list. Handing your maid the list on her first day ceases complications that may arise in the future such as confusion over duties, working hours, etc.
