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.

"They are so, so, so good! Very thorough, professional, nice, trustworthy, and very good at their jobs! I have been sick and have a 10 month old baby to take care of so I had fallen behind on my house cleaning - but these ladies came into my house and not only cleaned everything but organized too! My house looks great! This is the best housekeeping service I have ever had. I will absolutely hire them again! "

"Platinum Maid did an excellent on the initial deep cleaning of my townhouse. It was a big job as I had not been doing a great job of cleaning it myself. The did a number of things during the initial cleaning that I had not expected. I will update this review in two months after Platinum Maid has performed a number of bi-weekly cleanings. "

"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."

"Searching for a house cleaner can be overwhelming, but so excited that we found Virginia House Keepers. Theyâ  re communication is excellent. It was easy to find out pricing and services and book something quickly. The cleaning blew us away with how thorough they are. Iâ  ve never seen our house this clean. Especially all the bathroom fixtures and glass. They vacuumed and dusted everywhere imaginable. Huge weight off our shoulders. Excited to sign up for regular service and would highly recommend to others."
