Yes.. there is a difference. With the world being in such high demand for help, especially with households, many employers view those two words as one in the same. But seriously.. to do that would be the same as saying North Carolina and Atlanta are the same state. It’s impossible and unrealistic.
Many people seem to think that these two words are definitional exact, when they are only synonyms in a relational category. In looking up ways to effectively communicate the differences, I stumbled upon “UpperCrust Maids’ Blog” and I feel that Cathy Green did a phenomenal job in spelling it out for us.
She explained and I elaborated on a few items:
In addition to general house cleaning duties they also do some or all of the following:
. Replace light bulbs in homes
. Replenish supplies such as paper towels, toilet paper
. Wash dishes
. Wash clothes and iron clothes
. Transport linens, towels, etc. to laundry room
. Running general errands for family
. Other tasks as necessary
-Dusting, scrubbing, polishing
-Changing linen, decorating beds
-Dirty clothes to the laundry room
-Organizing- closets, kitchens, bedrooms, etc.
-Usually just one cleaner per home
-Bring their own supplies and equipment
-Can treat different tiles, counter tops, etc.
Have items you think should be added to this list to differentiate the two sectors of being an organizer? Add them below!
