Although housekeeping duties will vary between households, a housekeeper's central role is to handle all cleaning and organization in the home. Housekeepers are commonly asked to prep meals, run errands, and accompany vendors to their work areas. A great Housekeeper cannot only see the space from their perspective but also knows to stop and look at it from the Principal’s perspective. Hiring a housekeeper not only provides peace of mind but also ensures your home stays clean and organized beyond your expectations.
A professional Housekeeper is NOT a maid. They are the backbone of a luxury home, keeping everything clean and tidy and instrumental in creating the luxury our Principals pay us to cultivate. Housekeeping is a profession, NOT A JOB.
A professional Housekeeper doesn’t just clean floors and toilets; they bring order and comfort to the homes they serve. A good Housekeeper will bring positive energy into the home and be able to see the home through the Housekeeper’s eye and the Homeowner’s eye.

** While a Private Service Professional can handle most if not all of the above tasks, it is important to remember that every task takes time, and Employers should listen to their staff when they express how much time something takes to accomplish their duties. Your staff is dedicated to you, and "No" is not a part of their dictionary. If they ask if something should take priority over another task or ask to delegate the task to maintain efficiency, they are really saying that their plate is full and additional tasks might prevent them from doing other duties.
