What are house cleaning professionals?
Professional house cleaners are people who are paid to come and clean your house as often as you require.
They may be a house cleaning professional run by an individual cleaning lady who cleans solo with no team members or staff, often referred to as a cleaning lady or cleaner.
They may be a house cleaning company who employs various team members who rotate your house clean often referred to as a crew.
They may offer end of tenancy cleans, post construction cleans, move out cleans, move in cleans, weekly, bi-weekly and monthly cleans.
There is a difference between a cleaning service and a housekeeper so be sure you know which service you require before hiring! Housekeepers often live in and do jobs such as meals, laundry, beds, childcare and many other jobs a professional cleaner does not.
Professional Cleaner vs. Personal Organizer
Before you choose a housekeeper, ask yourself if you really need it. If what you’re trying to avoid is a cluttered mess, you may want to opt for a personal organizer. They organize your space, design better storage solutions and help you get – and stay – clutter free.
