Feeling burnt out from work and family obligations, many are turning to the idea of hiring of a housekeeper to alleviate their stress and spend more quality time with their children.

Housekeepers can be extremely convenient and helpful for families because they can keep a house afloat by taking care of tasks that often find themselves on the back burner like vacuuming, dusting and cleaning bathroom floors.

But finding the right housekeeper for you can be challenging. There are so many factors to consider - on what days will my housekeeper work? Do I want a live-in cleaner? Do I want them to look after my kids from time to time? House cleaning seekers often have particular requirements that make it difficult to find the right housekeeper just through word-of-mouth from their neighbours or referrals alone. Sometimes the search will leave you thinking that you will never find the right person.

Enter Housekeeper.com. For over five years Housekeeper.com has been helping both families and care providers find their perfect match. There is no other website that will have as many housekeeping jobs in your area, making your search fast and easy. Creating a Housekeeper.com account will give you access to over one hundred thousand house cleaners!

Oftentimes, those seeking help around the house just need a wider selection of qualified housekeepers in their area to choose from.

If you’re looking for housekeeping help, Housekeeper.com has you covered. And if you’re looking for a housekeeping job, Housekeeper.com has hundreds of families in your area looking for cleaning help!

Here’s how the site works. On Housekeeper.com, you can either register as a housekeeper and a housekeeper seeker.

If you are looking for a housekeeper near you, simply create a profile and a listing. From there on, housekeepers will message you in response to your listing or, you can browse housekeepers yourself and message them as well! In your profile you can specify what exactly you are looking for in a housekeeper in terms of hours needed per week, services needed or whether or not you’re willing to sponsor.

If you are a house cleaner looking for a job, create a profile and a listing. People looking for a housekeeper can message you from your listing or, you can search through those looking in your area and message them yourself! In your profile, you can specify your hourly rate, what services you offer and any other information your employer should know.

The average housekeeper wage can range from minimum wage to over $40 per hour so it’s important to pay your housekeeper right. Here are some quick stats to take into consideration:
  • The average housekeeper wage is $29.87 per hour
  • Housekeeper prices vary a lot by location - in Los Angeles the hourly wage is $37.60 while in Dallas the average is only $21.68
  • Certain services like basement and attic cleaning can lead to higher wages
  • Housekeepers with more experience get paid more - those with 15+ years in the industry charge an hourly wage of $32.03 on average

On Housekeeper.com searches can be filtered by…

  • Services provided (e.g. basement cleaning, dishes, pet clean-up)
  • Transportation (e.g. should your housekeeper have a license/vehicle?)
  • Whether or not the housekeeper has their own supplies/equipment
  • Work eligibility (e.g. criminal record check, whether or not sponsorship is required)

Housekeeper.com is a self-serve platform - meaning employers have complete control over who they decide to hire. There’s more free reign given to the house cleaners as well - they can set their own wage and discuss their hours with their own employers.
