Each domestic staffing professional is essential in operating an estate smoothly. Just like the inside of your home, the exterior also needs proper care.

A houseman is in charge of cleaning the outside of your home—this includes outdoor furniture, windows, grill area, pool and spa area, driveways and garages. They assist the housekeepers with heavy cleanings inside the estate and acquire handyman skills for minor repairs throughout the property.

Housemen are in charge of cleaning all vehicles and ensuring each vehicle is properly fueled and stocked with homeowners’ necessary belongings. Some housemen are skilled gardeners and can even cook basic meals.
