The short answer is “maybe”! While the difference may be small to some, depending on who you ask, there could be dramatic difference. For those of us that grew up during the Brady Bunch era, we think of Alice, the live-in housekeeper that provides cleaning services along with cooking and a little bit of childcare! Many people nowadays associate housekeepers solely with cleaning services thanks to personal chefs becoming more popular as domestic employees.

Full Time Live-In Housekeepers

While many of us would love to have someone live in our home to take care of our needs 24 hours a day, it’s just not realistic. Some of the wealthiest among us can afford full-time in-home help, but most hire services “as needed” to take care of the issues in and around the home.

Hiring Services as Needed

Maid service has grown in popularity over the years. Thanks to dual income households, more Americans are using professional house cleaning services than ever before. According to Home Cleaning Centers of America, nearly 10% of all U.S. households used professional house cleaning services in 2018.

The same can be said of many household chores outside of a normal house cleaning. Window cleaners take care of all your windows, inside and out. Lawn care companies keep your yard looking better than ever. Pool maintenance companies work hard to make sure your swimming pools and hot tubs are safe and ready for use when you are.

Time is a precious commodity and more and more of your neighbors are doing everything in their power to preserve what little time they have. Regardless whether you call them maids or housekeepers, the result is often the same. You have a professionally cleaned home while saving significant time.
