Some cleaning companies allow a person to try out different housekeepers until the right one is found. Before hiring a housekeeper, it is beneficial to check the person’s work history, criminal background and references. Hiring a housekeeper for a trial period of two to four weeks provides an opportunity for an employer to determine if a housekeeper meets expectations and gives the housekeeper a chance to demonstrate his or her housekeeping skills. A trial hiring period protects both the employer and the housekeeper.

The website Care.com allows a person to perform free searches for housekeeping services. This website provides a housekeeper's contact information, bio, rates and availability. Similarly, Angieslist.com is an online peer-referral service for finding housekeeping help. This website is designed to match housekeepers with employers, locally and across the U.S.

Gonannies.com is a website that charges a small fee to obtain the contact information for thousands of candidates offering housekeeping services. This website also allows housekeeping jobs to be posted and housekeeper background checks to be performed for an additional fee.
