Like every professional, your housekeeper needs proper material 


Are you sure you have adequate maintenance equipment at home? Below you will find a list of everything your housekeeper needs to clean safely and efficiently.

Check-list : 
I check if my material is suitable and of quality

To be able to do a good job, he / she needs suitable and solid material.
Check if your household equipment is in good condition and of good quality, so that your household help can perform her / his work in the best conditions.

Moreover, the impact of the material that you make available to your household help is often underestimated. A housekeeper  who has to work 8 hours a day with unsuitable, tatty and sometimes simply dangerous material runs the risk of developing physical complaints in the long term. And so the work becomes completely unworkable.
