  1. When we were doing our research we found that Care.com did not only show us results when looking for a housekeeper, but also for child care, tutors, special needs care, senior care, pet care, and finally housekeeping needs. It was overwhelming.
  2. Care.com had their filters in the upper right hand corner, Housekeeper.com has them to the left of the screen.
  3. Care.com does not offer many filters to choose from such as specific tasks like bathroom cleaning, oven cleaning, window washing, etc. (Housekeeper.com does).
  4. If you are viewing a housekeeper on Housekeeper.com, we generate a list of similar housekeepers in your area, which we show on the right hand side of the screen. No need to go back to the search page!
  5. Care.com does not have a Help Centre that we could access. We do have one with an extensive array of articles.
  6. Housekeeper.com has taken the time to research, condense, and break down the best COVID-19 hiring protocol, cleaning practices, and many more.

There are other avenues in which you can find a housekeeper, but after extensive research we found them to be limiting and impersonable:
