Amazing experience working with Max and Caleb. They did a great job unpacking and organising my house after a move. I would highly recommend either gentleman for any job. I'm lucky to have found them!

Top Housekeepers related questions

A housekeeper can be responsible for a range of household tasks, from cleaning and organising, to laundry and cooking.
A housekeeper should be competent in completing basic household chores to a high standard. They should have meticulous attention to detail and be able to follow instructions.
Yes. Some household tasks may require trade specialists - this is generally beyond the skills of a housekeeper. Most housekeepers also focus on areas inside the home - not outside/garden maintenance.

Some people have a daily housekeeper, others get help in once a week, once a month, or just on special occasions to help them get caught up.

Housekeeping agencies are popular, but they don’t offer as much flexibility and control. Hiring a housekeeper directly means you can choose your preferred housekeeper, based on ratings, reviews, and skillsets.

The cost of housekeeping depends mainly on how many hours you’d like your housekeeper to work. On Airtasker, people typically spend $60-$150 on housekeeping services.

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:


Cleaning 

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.


Cooking 

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.


Laundry

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.
