What Makes Us The Right Choice

by Jessica Okorn

We know it is stressful to look for a housekeeper. A million and one questions enter your head: how often do I need a housekeeper, can I afford a housekeeper, where do I even find a housekeeper?

There are many avenues in which you can find a housekeeper and after a quick google search you are inundated with many options. We have broken it down for you so you are confident that you are making the right choice. We also know we have competition out there and we are happy to let you know exactly what we offer.

  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:
