How to find a good housekeeper

Shop around and compare rates

In order to find a good housekeeper, the first thing you need to do is shop around and compare rates. Find a few prospects that fit within your budget before settling on just one. Once you’ve narrowed it down to about three to five cleaners, you can then move onto the next step.

Do your homework

The next step in the process of finding a good housekeeper is to do your due diligence. This is where you take a look at all the housekeepers you’ve picked out and find the best one. Here are a few questions you should ask when doing your homework:

  • Is the cleaner bonded & insured? It’s important that they are in case anything in your home comes up missing or broken.
  • Do they have or can they obtain a background check? Most cleaning companies take care of this for you because it’s important to know who you’re working with.
  • Are they experienced? When you hire a housekeeper, making sure they’ve been properly trained is a vital moving-part to a successful outcome. 
  • Will they be bringing their own cleaning supplies or does it cost extra? Find out exactly what’s included in their rates.

Set a schedule that works for you

The next sequential part in finding a good housekeeper is finding a housekeeper that is flexible with your schedule. You may think you’ve found the perfect housekeeper but if your schedule doesn’t match up, it could be a bit of a problem.

Qualities to look for in a good housekeeper

Now that we know how to find a good housekeeper, here are some good qualities that you should look for.

A good housekeeper is one that is…

Loyal & honest

There may be times where you have to leave your housekeeper unattended so you want to make sure it’s someone you can trust. Honesty is the key component of a long-lasting relationship.


When you’re evaluating potential candidates to clean your house, you want to look for someone that’s going to put time and effort into their work. Be sure that they put in the extra time and work to do everything you’ve asked and more.

Caring and attentive

Aside from being loyal and hard-working, a good housekeeper is one that is caring and attentive to your needs and the needs of your household. You want someone who will care for your house and your valuables as if they were their own.
