Berkshires Housekeeper Searching For Part/Full Time Or Occasional Work
I have about 5 years of paid housekeeping experience. I nannied throughout high school and from Aug 2020-Feb 2021. Both of those jobs included light housekeeping and towards the end of my second nannying stint, I started providing exclusive non child-related full housekeeping for the family in tandem, but separate, from childcare. This was an opportunity to hone my housekeeping skills.
I derive a lot of gratification and liberation from cleaning. It is satisfying to watch a space undergo transformation: cluttered to organized, dusty to lustrous. It is both psychologically and physically freeing to exist in a clean space. Unencumbered from messes, one feels that he/she can truly move about freely and can even (sometimes literally) breathe. Cleaning is an important mechanism for me through which I find therapy, peace, and comfort. There is also a ritualistic aspect of it that interests me. It is a way to show reverence for a space, to honor it, to make it sacred.
