What does a housekeeping service include?

Housekeeping services can include one-off services or regular domestic tasks (daily, weekly, or fortnightly), from cleaning and cooking to even home maintenance. Your housekeeper will bring along all the products and equipment they need to clean and maintain your home - all you need to do is tell them what you need done. Here’s how they can help:


The most common housekeeping service involves cleaning. This could include general cleaning, like vacuumingmoppingdusting, and bathroom cleaning. Or it might include detail cleaning tasks like couchcurtainfloorfridge, and rug cleaning. Depending on the number of tasks you’d like your housekeeper to complete, they may clean for just an hour, or up to the entire day. Your housekeeper will discuss a time that’s convenient for you, the tasks you need done, and the timeframe it should take to complete these tasks. If needed, they can bring their own cleaning supplies, like a vacuum cleaner and feather duster. 

Organising and tidying 

Many housekeepers offer professional organising services, where they help organise and tidy all areas of your home. This includes desks, filing cabinets, stationery, linen, wardrobes, toys, kitchen cupboards, garage interiors, and more. They’ll pull out all the items, organise them by category, and help you choose what you should keep, donate, or bin. They’ll also help by recommending suitable storage solutions to help you keep your home tidy for longer.


Some housekeepers are available to help with cooking in your home. They might prepare a few snacks, or help prep several meals ahead of time so you don’t have to worry about cooking. Your housekeeper will present menu and recipe options for you to choose from and use your ingredient and kitchen supplies to cook everything in your kitchen. Once they’re done, they’ll store the freshly cooked food (with heating instructions) and clean up any mess.


Washing and ironing starting to pile up? Housekeepers can help by putting on loads of washing, hanging clothes, loading the dryer, folding washing, ironing, and even putting it away. They’ll check the care labels to ensure appropriate washing/drying methods are used before they start the process. With some extra help, you’ll be all caught up on the laundry in no time.

Home maintenance

Many housekeepers are skilled in basic household maintenance tasks. But if they’re unable to do the job themselves, they’ll help organise and oversee skilled contractors who can help do repairs and maintenance in and around your home.

Basic housekeeping and buy a coffee for my Mum


Phillip ACT, Australia

2nd Feb 2023

My 64 year old Mum is currently awaiting surgery on both her hips. She has difficulty walking and therefore can’t do basic household chores (water garden, put washing on the line, vacuum, go and buy herself a coffee from a cafe) until she has the surgery in the next month. My sisters and I live out of town so are unable to help her with these. She has a cleaner, this is more for tidying and basic tasks around the house. Ideally would like to get someone around 2-3 mornings a week just for 1-2 hours until her surgery. Ideally this would involve bringing her a takeaway coffee if that’s possible :) - Due date: Needs to be done on Wednesday, 8 February 2023

Kingston ACT, Australia

24th Jan 2023

I have a few chronic health conditions as well as ADHD and overwhelmed with my 2 Bed, 2 Bath apartment. I would like some assistance to declutter, organise and a bit of cleaning my place so it will be easier to maintain. I am pretty good with starting tasks and doing the initial steps to declutter etc but can never manage to complete a full space. This will probably be a few sessions but want to make an initial start this Fri/Sat/Sun. I will be working on the tasks at the same time so am flexible who does what. Main things would be wardrobes/cupboards, some basic cleaning and I want to finish some home repairs and flat pack assembly that I’ve already started. The apartment cleanliness is ok - no biohazard situations, just a lot of dust and dog hair. My dog won’t be at the apartment but since there’s a lot of dog hair it’s probably best that you aren’t allergic. Any cleaning stuff would be provided. I’d like to start with a three hour session and can organise subsequent sessions as required - Due date: Before Sunday, 29 January 2023
