Executive Housekeeper and Laundress

Housekeepers vary greatly in experience and may carry out any or all of the following duties: laundry, pressing, ironing, cooking, clothing care, wardrobe care and maintenance, organizing and couture clothing care.  Some Housekeepers are Executive Housekeepers, Laundresses or Housekeeper House Managers.  The difference between a Housekeeper and a cleaner is the Housekeeper’s ability to organize closets by color and season, organize the home in general, a deep understanding of clothing care (steam, dry clean and hand wash) and their knowledge and training in formal service.  A high quality Housekeeper will understand formal service, which includes serving, formal table setting, flower arranging as well as all deep cleaning and laundry responsibilities.  An Executive Housekeeper will have experience working in a team, usually in a formal townhouse or other similar large high level residences.  

A Laundress will have an intensive knowledge of fine clothing care.  The Laundress will know how to steam, hem, maintain, wash and hang fine and valuable clothing of all kinds.  A laundress will usually spend the entire day looking after the find clothing in the home.  A Laundress is specifically hired to wash and maintain the laundry in-house.
