House Cleaner vs. House Keeper

A house keeper can best be described as a person with whom you will establish a continuing relationship to assist in the general upkeep of the home and other miscellaneous duties outside the home. A house cleaner, on the other hand, is used for occasions that demand a sustained effort and arduous work to clean, organize, detail, and/or sanitize a home. Examples of times when a house cleaner may be the right solution include:

  • Vacation home preparation
  • Kitchen/bathroom deep cleaning
  • Attic, basement and garage clean-up
  • Total house cleaning

Typical Housekeeper Tasks

Once you have decided to obtain help from an individual housekeeper or a housekeeping service, keep in mind the duties you can reasonably expect:

  • General house upkeep - sweeping, mopping, vacuuming, dusting, washing dishes.
  • Laundry duties - washing, folding, and ironing clothes
  • Bedroom neatening - changing linens, picking up clothes, toys, and clutter
  • Running errands - to restock food and personal care items
  • Pet care - cleaning litter box, feeding and walking pets
  • Food preparation - family meals, snacks, and next day lunches
  • General yard care - watering plants and grass, pulling weeds
  • Garbage disposal - including separation of recyclables

What Don't Housekeepers Do (or May Expect Extra Compensation For)

When interviewing your housekeeping service, inquire about the procedure and payment for duties that may be considered "add-on" duties, such as:

  • Deep cleaning of ovens, refrigerators, carpet, upholstery, fixtures
  • Washing of windows (outside) or difficult landscaping duties
  • Garage, attic, and basement de-cluttering and cleaning
  • Personal errands beyond normal household requirements
  • Biological waste cleaning (inquire as to the proper training)
  • Painting, wallpapering and other remodeling chores
  • Babysitting of infants, elderly, or disabled

Average cost for Housekeeping Services

Housekeeping rates will vary for live-in versus regularly scheduled visits, and differ depending on the size of the house and the required tasks as discussed during the interview session. The range of housekeeping services can range from someone who is entirely in charge of running the household ($175/day) including scheduling of professional services when needed and keeping an eye on children, or as simple as a weekly cleaning without further duties ($75/visit). The average national cost for a housekeeper is about $100/visit.

"Mayerling saw what was dirty when I didn’t even see it... she and her assistant did a fabulous job cleaning my entire 3 story townhouse. Other than service cleaning it hadn’t been deep cleaned in almost 2 years. What a great job they did. They were professional, thorough, polite, timely, responsive, and I completely appreciated her reaching out to me via email first. That allowed me time to respond back with my needs and set up a meet and greet to see the house. When I have a busy work schedule and can’t necessarily take phone calls, asynchronous communication is best. (Mayerling even cleaned underneath the padding in the high chair! Oy vay!) I am definitely keeping them on as my routine house cleaners, and will now be a good steward of this cleanly house they left me with by having them come back monthly. Hire them! You will be grateful you did!"

"I love the staff at Monroe Home services. When the lady came to my house she did a wonderful job. Her name was Daisy. Very nice young women. I told Mr. Monroe to send me his best employee. She cleaned the hell out my stove, walls, carpet, dining room, dishwasher, and master bath. Girl she got my house smelling good. She even walked my dog. I would recommend her to clean the white house too. I now have Monroe Home Services cleaning every week. I'm so happy I hired you guys. Thank you."

I did not get a response from the first team, so I made the decision to contact Metro Cleaning. I am excited to say that I have made the right choice in go with Antonio and Glenda, They are a really great team as they provide excellent cleaning service. Their customer service is awesome; and they consider the needs of their customers. I highly recommend them!"

"We hired Patriot Cleaning to come provide cleaning services for our home just for the day since we were hosting a gathering that night. Two people were supposed to come clean but one lady had gotten sick so there was just one person who showed up. At first, I was worried because how can 1 person possibly do the job of 2 and it a not an easy job, the house was a mess and needed deep cleaning. My worries went away after I saw how thorough and amazing this one lady cleaned the house all by herself. She spent over 3 hours on just one floor of the home! I will use this company again and highly recommend them to family/friends. "
