Housekeeper

Our housekeepers are household professionals that specialize in cleaning. We vet our housekeepers to the highest standards of professionalism and integrity. A housekeeper placed by Helping Hands will expertly handle common household chores that includes but may not be limited to cleaning bathrooms, scrubbing floors, vacuuming, and mopping.
