The Difference Between Housekeeper or Maid and House Cleaner
The category or description of Maid, Housekeeper, and House Cleaner/Cleaning Service may differ in several aspects. Such as the development of words to a more complex form or vice versa. Some based it on the countries that they are at or the word origin to know further details about the word. Though housekeeper, maid, and cleaning service are generally about cleaning. There are some aspects that differentiate them from each other.
Maid provides its assistance depending on the contract that you and your helper agreed upon. Their knowledge when it comes to cleaning is a bit detailed than housekeeping. They provide almost every needed task to complete the service, and their work can be repetitive in order to maintain a clean home. Also, this is an agreement between the family and the maid, if she/he is going to be a full-time employee, or can work within a specific timeframe.
Hiring a maid can be more expensive than hiring a housekeeper or a house cleaner. Why? As you will need to pay for their own Social Security, buying your cleaning equipment, and cleaning products.
On the other hand, Housekeeper is somewhat similar to the Maid, especially the expenses. The difference between the two would be the frequency of providing the service and the tasks. The tasks given to them are a little bit lighter than the Maid. There are some duties that a maid can provide that can not be performed by a housekeeper. And those are thorough cleaning service, window washing, cleaning human or animal waste, and so forth. Some of the housekeepers do not provide the said service because of security and financial reasons.
Let us go to House Cleaner. What is a house cleaner? A house cleaner or a cleaning service provides its services to residential homeowners, tenants, and so forth, just like Sparkly Maid. A house cleaner brings its own tools to complete the cleaning duties that the customer booked or invoiced. In addition, a cleaning service can be booked hourly, weekly, bi-weekly, thrice-a-week, or monthly, depending on the customer's necessities. It is also a cheaper version of the two, The Housekeeper and The Maid, as you only hire them according to what they have performed. Sparkly Maid is a combination of Maid Service and Housekeeper, with a less stress, affordable, and thorough-complete service.
