Insider Tips

On average, housekeepers in the United States make $10.00 per hour. The fewer benefits an employer offers, the more a housekeeper typically makes. Live-in housekeepers often make less than people who clean properties they don't live in. However, these lower salaries are usually offset by free room and board. Experienced housekeepers usually command larger salaries than people new to the profession. Large hotels and affluent households often pay their housekeepers more than small businesses and households with tighter budgets.
