What’s the difference between a house cleaner and a housekeeper?

A house cleaner may be an individual person or a team of cleaners who live outside of the hired household and arrive to the home on a scheduled day and time with all the proper cleaning supplies, products and equipment. House cleaners are usually in the home for a specific amount of time and take their supplies with them when they leave for their next cleaning appointment. House cleaners may be independently employed or work for a house cleaning company. The typical duties of house cleaner include deep cleaning most surfaces including floors, scrubbing and sanitizing kitchens and bathrooms, dusting, vacuuming upholstery and carpet, vacuuming and mopping hard floors, and interior window cleaning.

A housekeeper, on the other hand, is an individual person who is usually hired by a family who provides everything needed for the job. A housekeeper usually is in the home for a longer period of time and may have many projects within the home to keep them busy such as light cleaning, cooking meals, dish duty, laundry, garbage and trash maintenance, straightening up house clutter, taking care of the family pets, etc.

How many types of housekeeping cleaning are there?

According to the Cleaning Business Academy, there are two types of customers when cleaning houses: one-time and recurring. One-time customers only want their home cleaned once. Recurring customers want their home cleaned on a regular basis. 

Regular cleaning, spring/deep cleaning, and move-in/move-out cleaning are the cost commonly offered one-time services for house cleaning. A regular cleaning is going to be the basic cleaning offered to customers. A spring/deep cleaning is everything included in the regular cleaning with some extra cleaning tasks. A move-in/move-out cleaning is basically a spring cleaning without furniture. The same cleaning tasks are performed as for a spring/deep cleaning.

Recurring cleanings include these cleaning most commonly used frequencies: weekly, bi-weekly or monthly. For recurring customers, house cleaners can either offer a regular or spring/deep cleaning for their initial cleaning. After the initial cleaning, there will be a regular/maintenance cleaning on a recurring basis.
