How can I find house cleaning services near me?
Finding a housekeeper located nearby is convenient for both parties—you can reduce travel costs and find reliable help for the long haul. Additionally, your chances of finding someone to clean at short notice or on the weekends increase if they are close at hand. When you’re searching on the website for a house cleaner, filter the results of your search by location to show only cleaners in close proximity.
How can I find a professional house cleaner who will do a good job?
A professional domestic cleaner who is good at their job will know which tools and products they need to get the work done. They’ll either provide the tools and products or tell you exactly what to have on site. The house cleaner should ask you plenty of questions to make sure that the cleaning is done effectively, thoroughly, and in line with your expectations. Ask for references and check the website reviews to see if other families have had a good experience with the domestic cleaner you’re hoping to hire.
What is the average hourly rate for a professional domestic cleaner in Australia in 2023?
Housekeepers tend to charge an hourly rate of AUD 24 to 30 on average, but the rate per hour may be as low as AUD 20 or as high as AUD 45. Highly experienced domestic cleaners tend to ask for a higher rate, especially if they bring their own cleaning supplies or make themselves available at short notice. Additional services that might increase the hourly rate include doing laundry, ironing, grocery shopping, deep cleaning, and bond cleaning.
What kind of tasks can my housekeeper complete?
Many housekeepers offer a wide variety of services while at your home or office, including:
• Indoor window cleaning
• Deep cleaning
• Appliance cleaning
• Bond cleaning
• Grocery shopping
• Pet care
• Watering plants
While a domestic cleaner may also be happy to babysit children, they may find it unreasonable to be asked to babysit and clean at the same time. Make sure to clarify exactly which tasks you expect from your domestic cleaner in advance.
Should I leave my housekeeper instructions?
Even if you meet your housekeeper in person the first few times to outline your expectations, a friendly greeting with instructions will never go astray. This can be useful to refine processes as you get to know your domestic cleaner’s work style. Some examples include:
• Specific preferences (e.g. “Please store the children’s plates on the bottom shelf so they can set the table”)
• Circumstances that might change their routine (e.g. “Please do the vacuuming first today because I’ll be getting home from a night shift at noon and need to sleep”)
• A thank you or some positive feedback

Healthy and delicious meals can be cooked right in the client’s own kitchen. If a client has a special diet or just needs help eating healthier, our caregivers can work closely with them to plan, shop, and prepare meals.
Our number one priority is providing the best care possible. That means keeping clients safe in the comfort of their own home. Our caregivers provide general supervision and offer home safety checks and fall risk assessments. They can also help with dressing, bathing, and other daily activities, if necessary.
At ComForCare, we believe in order to be at your best to care for someone else, you must first take care of yourself. Preventing caregiver burnout is essential.

Medication management becomes more and more important with age. As a part of a specialized care plan, our caregivers are trained to work with client-specific medication profiles to ensure all medication is organized and taken as prescribed at the correct time every day.
Participating in meaningful activities allows older adults to have human connections and stay mentally sharp. Caregivers can play card games, read novels or magazines, listen to music, or just chat with seniors to brighten their days.

“Patricia has been great with my 93 year old mother!”

The range of duties of a housekeeper depends on the wishes of the customer: it may include only cleaning, or also cooking, washing and ironing clothes and linen, caring for plants and pets, and possibly looking after small children. This is a profession from the category of the service sector, it belongs to the category of “man-to-man”. By the way, the ProfGid career guidance center has recently developed an accurate career guidance test that will tell you which professions suit you, give an opinion about your personality type and intelligence.

Brief description: who is a housekeeper?
A housekeeper can be an outgoing maid, that is, stay in the client’s apartment or house for a specified period of time and then leave. Or she can live on the territory of the customer (usually special rooms are allocated for such servants, most often vacancies of a housekeeper with accommodation include meals). Typically, such employees are hired by fairly wealthy people who do not have the time and / or desire to maintain order in the house on their own (and it is possible to pay someone to whom these duties can be delegated). A housekeeper may be responsible for the following tasks:
- Dry and wet cleaning of the apartment.
- Cleaning toilet bowls, sinks, washbasins and other sanitary ware.
- Washing linen and clothes, ironing, using dry cleaning services to put in order things that cannot be washed and cleaned at home.
- Purchasing products, preparing meals according to the requirements and wishes of the customer’s family members.
- Washing dishes.
- Watering house plants.
- Feeding, walking, washing, combing pets.
- Babysitting (the housekeeper may be asked to pick them up from kindergarten/school, organize their leisure time, help them bathe and dress, etc.).
As already noted, each client has his own idea of which of the services listed above he needs a housekeeper, so the exact list of duties in each case may vary. Most often, it is a woman who is looking for this position, since the fair sex is considered more skilled in everyday life and households, and in most cases it is they who are looking for vacancies of a similar plan.
Pros and cons of the profession housekeeper
- No need for long-term education.
- Sufficiently high level of demand in the labor market.
- Possibility to live on employer’s premises.
- Opportunity to learn and improve skills that are useful in your own life.
- Work schedule is not always convenient.
- Not a very high social status of the profession.
- Physical activity.
- Average level of income.
Important Personal Qualities
Most people have a fairly plausible idea of what a housekeeper is: she is an economic, neat, clean woman who can be trusted to maintain order in the house. She should also be quite communicative and easy-going, decent, hardworking. In the event that her duties will include looking after children, certain pedagogical abilities will also be needed (possibly supported by appropriate education).
Training for a housekeeper
Training for a housekeeper is not required per se, however, in order to be successfully hired, the applicant must have certain knowledge and skills. In particular, to understand what cleaning products can and cannot be used to clean certain surfaces, be able to cook at least simple dishes, know the basics of caring for common pets, etc. All this knowledge and skills can be obtained in everyday life, and if necessary, quickly replenished.
So, university education is not necessary for a housekeeper, and a housekeeper may already have all the necessary abilities to successfully perform such work. But the question of where to get the profession of a housekeeper still remains open: after all, the degree of your professionalism still needs to be proved to a potential customer. Therefore, many women who choose such work find employment in special agencies that provide housekeepers and cleaners. These agencies usually provide short courses to teach the necessary basics.
Domestic staff courses
Place of work
A housekeeper can provide services from a cleaning agency or work privately. In any case, her clients can be people with medium to high incomes, and her place of work can be apartments and houses of various sizes.
Salary of a housekeeper
The income level of a maid depends on which company and for which client she works. In the homes of affluent employers, pay tends to be higher, as is the complexity of cleaning and the number of responsibilities.

How to hire a housekeeper and what to look for?
A housekeeper is a hired employee whose main function is to keep the house clean. Increasingly, people resort to the help of cleaning specialists, because cooperation with professionals makes life much easier. Not everyone has time for regular cleaning of the apartment.
Finding a housekeeper is a great way to take off a lot of household chores. By entrusting cleaning to a professional, you can devote more time to yourself and your loved ones. Cleanliness and order are the key to a great mood. The au pair can not only clean the house, but also perform various small tasks, if you agree in advance.
Duties of a housekeeper
The main tasks facing the housekeeper:
- Regular cleaning. The frequency depends on your agreements with the specialist. The list of daily tasks includes washing floors and dishes, plumbing, cleaning furniture, cleaning carpets and other similar work.
- Laundry. A housekeeper should always monitor the condition of clothes and bed linen. Qualified cleaning specialists know how to take care of delicate fabrics. If necessary, the assistant will always sew on a button or take the clothes to be repaired.
- General cleaning. If you have hired a live-in housekeeper, then, as a rule, there is a general cleaning once a week. In addition to the tasks described above, the list of duties includes washing windows, mirrors, cornices, lighting fixtures and tiles. General cleaning of premises is one of the most difficult stages.
- Plant and pet care. Feeding a cat or walking a dog will not cause difficulties for the assistant.
- Cooking and shopping for food. If this is provided for by the contract, the assistant can prepare meals. As a rule, such services are negotiated individually, since cooking and shopping require a lot of time.
A housekeeper should have professional cleaning experience, especially if she is hired to work in a large house. Also, an important requirement for an assistant is the skill of independent planning of working time and process. The employer must see the result. Apartment cleaning can only be as effective as possible if the housekeeper knows the basic rules of housekeeping.
What is not included in the duties
What a housekeeper is not required to do:
- be trained in the care of tropical and exotic plants;
- cook at the level of a professional chef;
- to care for and educate your children;
- act as servants – open doors, hold coats, serve at the table.
