What is expected from a housekeeper in Archway?
A housekeeper can fulfil a number of functions within your home, according to your needs and circumstances.
Whether you opt for a full-time or part-time housekeeper, we can source a candidate who fits your specifications. So if you need an emphasis on cleaning, dusting, mopping and tidying your home, that can be arranged.
A housekeeper will attend to the household and personal laundry, including ironing and bed making. Depending on your circumstances, you may require someone who is prepared to undertake the weekly shop for you, and your housekeeper may also be called upon to provide light meals on occasions too.
Taking care of pets, answering the door, taking telephone messages and even attending to the family pets are all duties that a housekeeper will happily undertake.
Benefits of a housekeeper
With a housekeeper on hand, you won’t have to worry about the state of your home, leaving you free to relax in your spare time. The housekeeper can attend to visitors when you’re not available, so you don’t have to spend time waiting around for that important delivery when you have other places to be.
Your housekeeper can run errands, handle the chores that you don’t have time for, or simply can’t face, and is a constant, reassuring presence in the home. If you have school-age children, the housekeeper can keep an eye on them for you too, during school holidays - although if you have younger children, you might be better off selecting a nanny / housekeeper, who will have the necessary childcare skills and qualifications.
