Introduction to Housekeeping Contract

A housekeeping contract (also known as a housekeeping agreement) is a legally binding agreement between two parties wherein the housekeeper or housekeeping service business agrees to perform cleaning services for a client. Both parties are required to state their duties, terms, and conditions in this contract, how the work must be fulfilled, and other rules that must be followed by either party. 

A well-written housekeeping agreement will assist the parties in ensuring that each party fulfills their obligations following the agreed-upon time frame.

Importance of Housekeeping Contract

In this day and age, every family is busy with their work and they can hardly invest any time in the maintenance of their home. This is when housekeepers come into the picture. They are hired to take good care of the home so that the owners can finish other work peacefully. 

A housekeeping contract is signed by both parties to ensure that both of them are on the same page when it comes to duties, rules, terms, and other conditions. It provides an in-depth explanation of the services provided by the housekeepers and the compensation they receive from the homeowners. Every aspect of the workforce's structure and the risk that both sides are willing to take is highlighted.

Different types of housekeeping services

Before you hire a housekeeper as an employee, it's crucial to comprehend the numerous kinds of housekeeping services offered by the housekeeping company. This will enable you to make the best choice for your needs and your financial situation. 

Make the best decision by being aware of the many housekeeping service options available as listed below:

  • Maid or Cleaner: A cleaner or maid provides a basic cleaning service. They should not be mistaken for a housekeeper. They could work in more industrial cleaning situations or end-of-tenancy cleans. Although they are rarely engaged full-time at a single residence, they may be used for quick, frequent visits to private houses.

  • Live-in housekeeper: A relatively common kind of housekeeping service is a live-in housekeeper. They may work for a home either full- or part-time, and as part of the package, they are also given accommodation. A housekeeper is a highly skilled expert who can clean, maintain order, and guarantee the utmost care for your home and belongings. This can be a popular choice for properties seeking flexibility and on-site security because the live-in housekeeper can assist with shopping, cooking, childcare, and safety when the home is unoccupied.

  • Live-out housekeeper: A live-out housekeeper may work either full or part-time hours. Like a live-in housekeeper, a live-out housekeeper is a qualified applicant who will clean, organize, manage your clothes, and possibly perform other tasks like cooking, shopping, looking after your pets, and taking care of your children. For homes without the space for a live-in housekeeper and for homes that don't require full-time assistance, a live-out housekeeper is a popular option.

  • House manager: The next level of support combines house management and a housekeeper. Here, the housekeeper becomes a house manager and offers further assistance with home management. Along with the usual cleaning tasks, they might have to manage administrative tasks, and domestic schedules, and ensure that the property is well-maintained from time to time. This is highly considered in upscale households with many domestic employees or busy families who need additional assistance. 

As an owner, it can be challenging to determine which housekeeping service would be best for you and your demands. Here are some basic pointers that you can consider:

  • How big is your property?

  • The frequency of visits you require from the housekeepers

  • Tasks and responsibilities other than specific cleaning

  • Flexibility

  • If you require the housekeepers to accompany you on a trip or to take care of your property while you are away
