The helpers are professionals, and are well-trained to carry out the different tasks required of them. A majority of them specialize in home cleaning services which include a thorough dusting, washing, mopping and vacuuming of the entire home and its contents. On a typical regular visit, they focus on carpets, furnishings, cabinets, curtains, windows, walls and even appliances such as refrigerators.
