Most Housekeepers use public transport, so you'll need to provide a vacuum and mop & bucket for them at the property. If you have a cordless vacuum, please make sure that this is fully charged ahead of your Housekeeper's arrival.
If you provide your own cleaning cloths and sprays, please provide the following products to get the best possible clean:
- Multi-surface disinfectant
- Limescale remover
- Kitchen cleaner
- Bathroom cleaner
- Floor cleaner
- Glass cleaner
- Toilet cleaner
- Rubber gloves
- Clean sponges and cloths (preferably microfibre cloths), washed between visits
- Any specialist surface cleaners you need, such as chrome, granite or wood cleaner (these need to be provided by yourself, even if you've booked for your Housekeeper to bring cleaning products)
You can provide any brands that you'd like. If you need a hand choosing, click here to read some of our suggestions.
Can my Housekeeper provide cleaning products?
Here's some more info: How do I ask my Housekeeper to bring cleaning products?
If you've booked an oven clean, you'll still need to provide the oven cleaning product & gloves, even if your Housekeeper is bringing other cleaning products. You'll also need to provide any specialist surface cleaners (e.g. chrome, granite or wood cleaner).
Oven cleaning products
We strongly recommend that you do not provide specialist oven cleaning or any other corrosive cleaning products to your Housekeeper. We recommend that ovens are cleaned with soap & water. Even small oven cleaner spillages can damage kitchen surfaces. If you do choose to provide corrosive cleaning products, Housekeep can not be held responsible for any damages that occur.
