What is expected from Housekeepers in Ipswich?
A housekeeper will ensure that your home is always clean and tidy. There are various different types of housekeepers; some housekeepers only clean the kitchen and the bathrooms, while other housekeepers will cover the entire home.
However, there are some basic tasks that you can expect from all high-quality housekeepers. This starts with the dusting; a great housekeeper will take the time to dust everything in your home, and we mean everything. They will dust the floor and the tables, but they will also dust all of the objects in your home, including ornaments, the tops of bookshelves and lamps. This means that your house will be truly dust free, so it will look clean and tidy and it will also remain hygienic and healthy.
Housekeepers will also deal with lots of jobs that most people hate, such as vacuuming the floors and cleaning the bathroom.
Benefits of a housekeeper
One of the main benefits of hiring a housekeeper is that your home will always be clean and tidy. So it will not only look beautiful but it will also be better for your health. This is because the housekeeper will remove the dust and allergens from your home, so you are less likely to breathe in dust and pollutants.
Of course, it is possible to clean your house yourself, but a professional will achieve a deeper, more intense clean. This is in part because they have more time to complete the job, but it is also because they are cleaning professionals, so they know the best techniques to remove dust and dirt from the home.
This is particularly important in both the bathrooms and the kitchen, as both rooms can easily host harmful organisms such as fungi, mould and even bacteria such as e-coli. These organisms can be very damaging to your health, with some exacerbating respiratory issues such as asthma. This is particularly problematic if you have young children or older people in the house, as they are more vulnerable to respiratory illness.
A clean, tidy home is also better for your mental health; various studies have found that people are more relaxed and positive when they are in a clean, tidy space. For clients who live alone, a housekeeper may also double as a companion, accompanying them on trips out and encouraging healthy exercise.
Some housekeepers are also happy to undertake cooking, shopping and other domestic tasks on behalf of clients, further improving a sense of work / life balance.
