Do you have any tips on making a two-maid situation work? 

There are many landmines here. If you already have one maid, you should start by asking her if she has a relative or friend that she could (and would) work with. In many cases this is the easiest way to find a good match. If that is not possible, ensure that your existing maid gets a chance to become acquainted with the prospective new employee.

Be sure to lay down ground rules regarding days off and division of tasks from day one. Encourage input into these matters; if the helpers can figure it out by themselves, that’s one less thing for you to manage. Finally, keep an eye out for things that get missed, and for possible conflicts. Just as you should be able to trust one maid, you should be able to trust a team of two to take care of the household in an efficient and responsible manner.

On a side note, if the maid has a husband, he can also be an option. Just make sure he understands that he is a “maid” as well, and needs to work on laundry, cleaning and what not as needed.
