Housekeeping vs. Housecleaning Services

Most caregiving agencies provide attendants who perform housekeeping services, which means maintaining the home in a hygienic and tidy manner. “Housekeeping” typically means cleaning up after meals, mopping up spills, laundry of the client’s clothes and linens, and picking up items that might be a hazard to the client’s safety. Occasional vacuuming and dusting may be requested if there’s time.

On the other hand, “housecleaning” includes maid-type services and deep-cleaning of the home, such as cleaning floors or windows, moving boxes and furniture, etc. At this time, WeCare Home Assistants does not provide housecleaning services.
