Housekeepers / Maids
Housekeepers and maids will possess many of the same skills as an Executive Housekeeper. They are responsible for cleaning the home on a daily basis. At times they can help with lite meal preparation, serving, running errands, driving, basic laundry, and steaming and pressing. They may also support childcare with limitations and senior care support with limitations. Most are relatively tech-savvy, and we can place multi-lingual housekeepers or maids as needed.
At IDC we offer training and support for your existing housekeeping staff on environmentally safe cleaning practices, preventative maintenance, and support regarding wardrobe and laundry management. Contact Peter O'Donovan to learn more about our concierge services...
