Finding some down time between a full-time job and family can be very difficult sometimes. Between play dates, meetings and household chores many parents are constantly feeling burnt out and tired. The solution many have gone with is hiring a housekeeper.
House cleaners can work miracles for a family – and breathe fresh air into a house in disarray! They can perform all the tasks that constantly never get done like cleaning the oven or fridge.
But finding the right housekeeper for your household can be quite the challenge. There are definitely many different factors to consider – which days will my housekeeper come in? How frequently do I want them to clean? Do I also want them to look after my kids or pets from once in awhile? Those looking for house cleaning often have specific requirements that make it difficult for families to find the right housekeeping just through word-of-mouth from their neighbours or referrals alone.
