"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."

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

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between a maid service and a housekeeper?

There are 3 main differences:

Maids

  • Perform deep cleanings
  • Hired for single jobs
  • Cleaning only

Housekeepers

  • Only perform surface-level cleanings
  • Hired for regular cleanings
  • Can do some chores like laundry

How much does a maid service cost?

Hiring a maid service costs between $120 and $240 per cleaning. A housekeeper costs between $75 and $175. Both either charge by the hour or by square footage.

  • Maid service:$50 - $90 per hour. $0.05 - $0.10 per square foot.
  • Housekeeping service:$9 - $15 per hour. $0.02 - $0.05 per square foot.

Most quotes depend on the layout and structure of your home. High ceilings and windows, difficult access, and multi-level homes can all increase cleaning costs.

How long does it take to clean a house professionally?

On average, expect your cleaning service to take about 4 hours per person per 1,000 square feet. That means a cleaning crew of 4 people can clean a 1,000-square-foot space in about 60 minutes.

The rooms included in the job can change that timing. A bathroom, kitchen or family room with cathedral ceilings takes longer than a small bedroom.

How can I find a good maid service?

These tips can help you make sure the cleaning service you hire will do a good job:

  • Look for references. You have to be able to trust the people you let into your home.
  • Get a rapport. It's important to have a good personal feeling about these professionals.
  • Ask for a free quote. No two homes are the same. You need to be sure about the price before agreeing to the offer.
  • Set expectations early. Are you looking for a one-time cleaning or an ongoing relationship?
