What Should I Expect from a Cleaning Services?

April 22, 2021

If you’ve ever looked around your house in a moment of stress and see that you cannot do it all is very frustrating. You have some errands that needs to accommodate; you have work that needs to accomplish and lastly you have to attend your own self. We believe that no man is an island. You cannot do it just by yourself.

If you have the means to pay for an extra set of hands to help reduce your stress, hiring a housekeeper may be the perfect solution to your problems.

A nanny is different from a house cleaner

The first thing you should know is that a nanny is not exactly the same thing as a house cleaner. While they sound very similar, it’s important to know the distinctions between the two so that you can hire the right person for the job you need filled. The major differences between a nanny and a home cleaner revolve around the frequency of visits and the services that they perform when they’re in your home.

What is a nanny? A nanny is a more consistent presence in your home. They would be there one to two times per week or more, depending on your needs. A nanny completes a list of daily or weekly duties while in your home, and you provide the cleaning products they need to do their job. A nanny is taking care of all your personal needs such cooking, washing laundries and taking care of your children.

What is a house cleaner? A house cleaner is someone you would hire less frequently and often for a bigger job, such as a top-to-bottom deep cleaning of your home, getting a home ready for sale or prepping a vacation home.

If you’re looking for someone who is a steady presence in your home and who would complete the following general list of duties, a nanny is generally the way to go.
