What is a Housekeeping Service?
A Housekeeping service is different to a cleaning service in a few key ways. Most cleaners will take care of the three main areas of your home - the bathrooms, the kitchen and the floors. Most general cleaning services will not pick items up off the floors, they usually wont make beds or move items on shelves to dust under and around them. Most cleaners will not put a load of washing on or put things away where they belong.
What a typical Housekeeping Service can look like:
On the day of your service, you housekeeper arrives with their fully stocked cleaning caddy with everything they need to clean your home. Their first task is to collect laundry from around the home and put on a load of washing. While the washing is on, they will make beds/ strip and replace linen (depending on your requirements), tidy up and straighten up bedrooms, putting items back in their place. If you need extra help to organise your space, your housekeeper will help you to sort out your storage options. They will then clean bathrooms. add fresh towels and restock supplies. Washing is either hung out to dry or finished in the dryer, depending on your preferences, then folded and put away. Your housekeeper will clean the kitchen, wash dishes, empty and clean bins and restock supplies. Depending on time and your requirements, your housekeeper will clean and organise cupboards, the fridge and pantry. Our housekeepers dust all surfaces, clean glass and mirrors, polish stainless steel and clean fans, skirting boards, door tracks. Any task that needs attention in your home will be taken care of by your housekeeper. You have direct communication with your housekeeper so that you can be confident that they are doing all of the tasks that you require to your exact requirements. Your service each week is consistent and routine, only changing as your needs change. You can expect that after the first 2-3 weeks of regular services, your house will be cleaner, more organised, and easier to maintain.
