Cleaning (and Baby sitting) in Zurich

My family and me are moving to Zurich on June. We will need a weekly flat cleaning: I have searched here in the forum but I would prefer to have first hand recommendation (not EF advertising).

What is the best way to find a reliable person to help us with the cleaning? Maybe an agency?

We would need also a baby sitter once in a while. The kids go to school, it would be only for an evening once in a while: ideally the same person... They are 6 and 11 years old, they just need to have an adult with them while we are out.

We are coming from Belgium (but we are Italian), where they have a wonderful service, and the process of finding the right person with all contract etc. is very easy. While I remember that when we lived in Basel it was quite complicated...

Any suggestion for finding a domestic help would be very helpful, thank you very much.

Re: Cleaning (and Baby sitting) in Zurich

Hello, as a personal recommendation for a cleaning company I would highly recommend http://www.zurich-cleaning.ch/
I have used them now for nearly three years, they have never once let me down, always really helpful and always do a great job.
If German language is not yet your strong point then no problem I have always had no problem communicating with them in english.
The people in charge are always really nice and helpful and the cleaners always really careful.
I am about to move to my 3rd apartment and hope to continue using them.
There are probably lots of other cleaning companies out there but these are the only ones I have used so for a personal recommendation I would rate them highly - hope that helps

If you don't find anyone, it's worth asking at the local Krippe as the younger people there are quite often on a 'training salary' and are happy for some extra money (plus they know what they are doing!)
