  • This checklist is awesome! This will be so helpful to me...I just hired a housekeeper through Care.com, and she starts this weekend. I was wondering how in the world she was going to remember everything that I need her to do. But I just wrote the tasks down on the checklist--this makes life a little bit easier for me. Thanks, Care.com!

  • A more detailed checklist for each room would be helpful

  • This is very helpful for the individual charged with providing the service. It lists everything expected and provides the housekeeper the opportunity to provide top-notch service. Very helpful tool. I for one welcome any tools that provide me the opportunity to excel and provide optimum service.

  • This is very helpful for me... I hired Marta W, the housekeeper... She is the BEST housekeeper I EVER hired.... She is a very perfectionist and very clean and very detailed with cleaning.... She's a HARD WORKER.... She cleans my house every 2 weeks.... She's a WONDERFUL worker.... Thanks Care!!!

  • I would like to see some listing of complete hourly payments including all taxes...A reference phone number would be helpful; Car.com list a lot of information but I don't know the bottom line figure for a housekeeper that works for $10, $15, $20... W A Ray
