Thinking of hiring a domestic housekeeper? You could do it yourself but if you want a professional with the right skills for your property best use a housekeeper agency. Here's what you can expect from a pro hire... Click To Tweet Your home is your castle. Whether you live in a flat, a semi-detached or a large manor in the country, a castle needs a housekeeper. Even if you live in a small place that you usually clean yourself there are tons of benefits other than having a tidy household when you hire an extra pair of hands to ease the pressure on you.
A professional housekeeper can adapt to any household arrangement and take on many daily chores needed to run an efficient household.
To find a good housekeeper you should hire one through an agency. Then you won’t have to wade through mountains of resumes or risk hiring someone that doesn’t fit the bill.
Here at Polo & Tweed we help property owners recruit housekeepers. Here are some of the benefits of hiring a domestic housekeeper we’d like to share with you.
Benefits of Hiring a Domestic Housekeeper
You’ll enjoy many benefits from hiring a domestic housekeeper that go well beyond having a great looking home without you having to lift a finger.
You can leave children and pets at home with peace of mind that someone is looking after them.
Even if you have young children your home will be clean and tidy when you get home. No more picking up after the kids.
Your domestic housekeeper can also run errands for you such as shopping or going to the post office as well as helping to prepare meals for you and the family.
What are general housekeeping responsibilities?
Here are some of the many things a domestic housekeeper can help you with:
- Cleaning and tidying
- Ironing, pressing and steam cleaning
- Driving (school runs, pickups, post office)
- Pet Care
- Admin duties – organisation, filing, and paperwork
- Managing contractors
- Serving at dinner parties and afternoon tea
- Greeting guests
- Travelling with the family members
- House sitting when you are away
Why do you need a housekeeper agency?
Hiring a housekeeper means having a stranger in your home so you don’t just employ any old cleaner off the street. Using a housekeeper agency removes the stress of the recruitment process.
Your housekeeper candidates are already fully vetted and if they are foreign, you are assured they have the legal right to work in the country.
Hire a housekeeper yourself and you’ll be doing lots of interviews and wading through mountains of paperwork. Hire through an agency and you only deal with one person; your recruitment manager, who can streamline the process and fit around your schedule.
Using a housekeeper agency ensures you find a professional for your specific needs with the right skill set to match your property’s requirements.
