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.

Looking for a chef who can create 28 low-carb plant-based meals weekly


Clifton Hill VIC 3068, Australia

6th Dec 2022

Hello, I am looking for a chef who can prepare and supply me with 28 low-carb plant-based meals per week. It would be ideal If there were three different flavours and styles that could rotate each week, refrigerated, and stored in bulk so I could add them to the meat I cook each night. The quantity would consist of 3 larger meals a day, 7 days a week. Please feel free to cook either at my home (although I have limited equipment) or in your own kitchen. Raw ingredients will need to be sourced by you, but I can provide large storage containers for refrigeration. Organic produce is my preference, but I am flexible depending on the price. I am also open to most flavour profiles and spice levels. My weekly budget is flexible between $250 - $400. - Due date: Flexible

Declutter and organise my 2 bed 1 bath townhouse. Must have afterpay


Carlton VIC 3053, Australia

20th Nov 2022

I live with my 5 year old and due to an illness I am starting to lose control of the clutter in my home. Attempts by myself to attack the situation only leave me feeling defeated and overwhelmed. I need someone who can come in, take stock of the situation and know how to turn it back to a functional home but this time one that will allow me and my bubs to function within it. I can assist on a minimal level due to my illness, and I also will be working from home, so you will need to be comfortable making decisions and completing the job independently. I have no idea how long it will take and I'm not comfortable posting pics up on here, but I can give you a fair description of the situation and that is WAY too many clothes, 2 bedrooms, a lounge and a kitchen needing to be attacked, stripped to the bones and built from scratch to form the home we want and need. In my head I am thinking a solid 8 hours work, so this is what I'm assigning the cost to. If you can achieve your vision for my home quicker then you rock and you deserve the whole amount anyway. I would prefer it be done in the one day, but if it's not possible and you need to break it up into 2 days, that's fine too. So if this speaks to you please drop me a line! Cheers! - Due date: Before Thursday, 24 November 2022

This woman is a gem! She spent 2 and half days helping me sort out my place and she was great! She got the job done and well. I would like to think I wouldn't need her services again as I'm promising myself to stop being such a consumer!! BUT if it ever does happen that I've let my shopping habits get out of control again, I'll be calling her! Thanks!

Organise and de clutter my 2 bedroom house


Fitzroy VIC, Australia

9th Nov 2022

We have 2 children who seem to grow out of clothes faster than I can pack them away. The older one is also a ninja at spreading her toys, crafting and other random stuff through our tiny townhouse. We also have a backlog of cupboards, drawers and a pantry that have fallen victim to a random filing system and a home office/ spare room that seems to be a breeding ground for cardboard boxes. I would like someone to come in and work with me to tackle the situation room by room to declutter, organise, clean/wipe down , fold, pack away and discard. Then implement practical systems keeping things organised. I expect it would take 8-10 hrs in total. Ideally, you will be methodical in your approach with experience in home organising, happy to take direction while being able to work autonomously. There may be an ongoing maintenance requirement every 8 weeks.

Melissa was great, arrived on time and was very professional and methodical and her approach to organising.

MY AVAILABILITY: Sun 11 Dec: anytime between 8am to 6pm Mon 12 Dec: anytime between 8am to 6pm Tuesday 13 Dec: anytime between 8am to 6pm You tell me which days & times you prefer to come and help, according to your availability! I’m very flexible on these three days. YOUR TASK: My home is always hygienic/clean. You will not be required to do any deep cleaning. Just a bit of dusting/wiping and vacuuming in certain areas - only when asked. These are some examples of what I need done: - Hang/fold clothing I am keeping. Put away. - Label two boxes of sundry items. Put all away. - Help me organise a variety of private items such as my undergarment drawers & a basket filled with personal documents from 2022 (filing).
