Have you read "NIckel and Dimed: On [Not] Getting By in America" by Barbara Ehrenreich? She worked for a cleaning service for a while and was quite disappointed with their standards.

Ive not read that book, though I may
have skimmed it.
Frankly, I can accept lower standards -- unless someone declares
and promises one set of standards, but does not in fact meet those
standards, but operates on a much lower set.
My complaints were not so much that _I_ wanted things done that
met a certain standard (well, okay on some elements I did - like
actually cleaning the stove top), but more that they had
specifically listed that these things WOULD be done, and their
staff didnt do them (e.g. dusting the top of the picture frames,
and shelves). Okay, that and that the whole point was that theyd
scrub the floor and they not only didnt, they werent prepared
to.
