Housekeeping

What is the difference between a trained housekeeper and a cleaner?

While many cleaning services and on-call cleaners are excellent for last minute tidying or once-over deep cleanings, there is a distinct difference between a housekeeper and a cleaner. A trained housekeeper will bring their knowledge base of formal serving, table setting, organizing, and high-quality care for furniture and artwork. They will also be skilled in washing and ironing clothing. A housekeeper’s duties will be specific to the home they are working in.

A distinction between a housekeeper and an executive housekeeper is the latter’s experience managing other household staff.

What are the duties of an executive housekeeper?

An executive housekeeper will have worked on teams of household staff and overseen other housekeepers. Household finances are often handled by the executive housekeeper along with stocking the pantries and overseeing any vendors or contract workers coming into the home.

When beginning your search to hire a live-in or live-out housekeeper, consider your home and prioritize your needs. Our expert team is happy to guide you through the entire process.

Testimonials

“This is a wonderful agency!!I have a seven-year-old daughter and the team at BAHS has helped me with different nannies for the different stages of her development and, tutors and occasional staffing needs. Once you are part of the BAHS family they will truly work with you to support your family and get you the best possible staff – and always make you feel understood and with respect for your privacy.”

-SR, Client

“I recently utilized this agency to help me find a nanny for my six year old son.  I can’t say enough good things about the quality of the service at BAHS.  They really listened to my needs, and only sent me candidates who met my criteria and who were really interested in working with my family.  The agency’s responsiveness, attention to detail and ability to be discrete was top notch.  While I hope our current nanny stays with us as long as we need, I would use this agency again if I ever have additional staffing needs.”

-CA, Client

“I cannot recommend this agency enough. I am a British Nanny with twenty seven years of experience so I have encountered many agencies both here and London during my working life. It did take time for me to find the right position as I am choosy, but each time I decided a job wasn’t right for me they didn’t criticize my reasoning but just persevered in finding what would eventually be the perfect fit for me.”
