Assessment and Preparation:

  • Before beginning the cleaning process, housekeepers typically assess the area to be cleaned and gather the necessary cleaning supplies and equipment. They may also take note of any special instructions or client requests.


  • Housekeepers often start by removing clutter and straightening up the area. This can include picking up and organizing items such as toys, magazines, or personal belongings.


  • Housekeepers usually dust surfaces from top to bottom, starting with higher surfaces like shelves, ceiling fans, and light fixtures. They work their way down to tables, countertops, and other surfaces. Dusting may include using microfiber cloths or dusters to capture dust and allergens.

Vacuuming and Sweeping:

  • Floors are vacuumed or swept to remove dirt, dust, and debris. Vacuuming may also include using attachments to clean upholstery, corners, and edges.


  • Hard floors are mopped using an appropriate cleaning solution. Housekeepers may use different mop heads and techniques depending on the type of flooring (e.g., tile, hardwood, laminate).

Kitchen Cleaning:

  • In the kitchen, housekeepers clean appliances (inside and outside), countertops, sinks, and backsplashes. They may also wipe down cabinet exteriors and clean the inside of the microwave and oven if requested.

Bathroom Cleaning:

  • Bathrooms are cleaned thoroughly, including scrubbing and disinfecting toilets, sinks, showers, bathtubs, and tiles. Mirrors are cleaned and polished, and any soap scum or water spots are removed.

Bedroom Cleaning:

  • Bedrooms are dusted, vacuumed, and any linens (bedsheets, pillowcases) may be changed if requested. Furniture surfaces are wiped down.

Final Touches:

  • Housekeepers pay attention to details, such as wiping down light switches, doorknobs, and baseboards. They may also empty trash cans, replace liners, and arrange pillows and cushions.

Quality Check:

– After completing the cleaning tasks, housekeepers often perform a final inspection to ensure that all areas have been properly cleaned and nothing has been missed.

The time it takes for a housekeeper to clean a space can vary widely based on factors like the size of the area, the level of cleanliness required, the number of rooms, and the complexity of the cleaning tasks.

Smaller spaces may take a few hours, while larger homes or more detailed cleaning jobs can take several hours or even a full day. Some cleaning services may provide estimated cleaning times based on the specific details of the job. It’s important to discuss your expectations and any time constraints with the cleaning service to ensure that your needs are met.
