One of the most important things for any household is to have a clean and tidy home, and it is a housemaid’s responsibility to ensure that these expectations are met. Homes of all sizes and salaries look to hire a house maid to ensure their home stays in excellent condition around their jobs and social commitments.
Many households desire a maid because they have the experience and knowledge to complete cleaning tasks to a high standard and have the attention to detail to ensure a home is sparkling.
Maids jobs in London cover a range of responsibilities for keeping a home clean such as: vacuuming, dusting, mopping, sweeping; wiping down the kitchen to remove dirt, grease and grime; loading and unloading the dishwasher; keeping bathrooms clean and removing mould, mildew and limescale; emptying wastebaskets; changing beds, washing, drying and folding laundry and a variety of other household chores.
With a variety of jobs to complete daily, a house maid needs to be organised with excellent timekeeping and able to keep on top of their cleaning tasks and keep an accurate record of everything completed. A maid will also need to be physically fit to meet the demands of the job.
You should be confident to communicate with the housekeeper or head of the household to report any issues, concerns, repairs or the replenishing of cleaning supplies.
A role as a live-in house maid will provide you with private accommodation on the premises of the household you are working for, either in a separate wing or accommodation on the estate.
