Households of all types, sizes, and income brackets hire housekeepers to keep their homes clean and looking great at all times. This is not a domestic staffing service reserved for just very wealthy individuals because many individuals and families want a clean home but don’t have time to keep up with all the chores.
Here is an overview of Pavillion’s live-in housekeeping services so you can make the best choice for your house cleaning needs.
What Is a Live-In Housekeeper?
Many housekeepers have their own residences and commute to their employers’ homes every day or every week or two for full-time or part-time work. However, you can take this employer-employee relationship to the next level by hiring a live-in housekeeper that can accommodate your needs even better and be on call when necessary.
Live-in housekeepers have their own separate living quarters in an employer’s home, such as in a guesthouse, private bedroom, or attic apartment above the main house. Employers typically provide meals, transportation, bonuses, and other benefits to their live-in housekeepers when they exceed expectations and achieve performance goals.
Benefits of Live-In Housekeepers
There are many benefits to hiring a live-in housekeeper versus hiring a housekeeper that lives outside the home. By having your housekeeper live in your home, you welcome her or him as an extended family member and can develop a more meaningful relationship with your employee. This leads to greater communication, trust, and respect between you and your domestic worker.
Live-in housekeepers are less likely to bring in germs that make you and your family sick because they live with you and not in another place that could be harboring bacteria and viruses. They also have the opportunity to get very familiar with your home, where everything is kept, and understand exactly how you like things to be cleaned.
Duties, Responsibilities, and Qualifications of a Live-In Housekeeper
Live-in housekeepers can handle many different things for a homeowner, thereby relieving you from the burdens of household chores. They can dust surfaces, organize closets, vacuum floors, scrub toilets, and wash interior fabrics when necessary. They have superior laundry skills, know how to maintain a kitchen, care for your wardrobe, and assist with pet care. Some live-in housekeepers even have childcare experience and can provide nanny services when you are at work or traveling.
Qualified housekeepers will have years of experience professionally cleaning homes and catering to the unique needs of families they work for. Many housekeepers have their high school diplomas and perhaps specialized certifications for further education. Beyond these formal qualifications, housekeepers that we work with at Pavillion have excellent references, pass background checks with flying colors, and have all the qualities you would want in someone taking care of your home. These include dependability, trustworthiness, attention to detail, good communication skills, discretion, efficiency, and knowledge about the best ways to clean pretty much everything in a home.
