The Best Ways to Find a Cleaner in Düsseldorf

By on February 29th, 2016

It is phenomenal how often English speakers in Düsseldorf have searched the term ‘cleaning ladies in Düsseldorf’. In order to help minimize the amount of searching you have to do, we’ve put together a list of some of the top recommended putzfrau in the city. Recommendations are based on research through community forums, Facebook groups and thorough conversations.

 

Book a Tiger

They do not only have an English website name, but they have a specific search for English speaking cleaning ladies in Dusseldorf. This is an easy way to book a cleaner if you’re hot into apps and online booking engines. Once you’ve downloaded the app, they send you a 3 step process – book, confirm and clean.

PS. If you’re looking for a job, you can also join their workforce.  

 

Haus Helden

Haus Helden is very similar to Book a Tiger in the way that they work using a simple online booking process. You might need to know a little German to get your way through this website, but it’s been recommended by a lot of English speaking people here in Dusseldorf. Certainly worth a shot!

While there still aren’t many online cleaning service networks in Germany yet (even in German), there are certainly other ways to find your own cleaning lady. Here are a few recommendations:

 

  • Post an ad in the newspaper – unfortunately this should probably be done in German, unless you are looking for an English speaking cleaner. Be sure to include how often you would like to hire them for cleaning (once a week, once a month), your telephone number and your neighborhood area.
  • Post a question in an expat forum – there are so many other internationals living in the city that may have answers for you. Apparently, the best way to find a cleaner is through word of mouth. While they might not answer you directly on the forum, some may send you a private message about their cleaner who is looking for more work. Here are a couple expat forums to get you started Internations and Toytown Germany.
  • Post on a community board in the city – you should post this in German if you don’t mind your cleaner not speaking English, or in English if you’re particular. While we’re not quite sure where the best community boards are in the city, this is a conversation for another post.

While most cleaners in Düsseldorf are hired under the table, you’re in Germany now so be careful with the rules and regulations in the city. While it might save you some money in the long run, if anything happens to your cleaner while they’re in your house, you might end up getting stuck paying their medical bills for the rest of your life.

Some people in the city recommend going to an Arbeitsamt where you can find someone to clean your house while also purchasing an insurance contract that will keep you safe in case of accidentals and injuries.

Do you have any cleaner in Düsseldorf that you’d like to add to the list? Leave a comment below to help others in the community find their cleaner!

    Dear Expats,

    I’d like to add the the cleaning Services list “Casa Blanka”,a project of ZWD/ Stadt Düsseldorf which trains and employs sociale week people and intermediates them for Jobs

    http://www.zwd.de/dienstleistungen/casa-blanka/

    So if you are looking for a cleaning Lady properly Trained and regularly paid, you might consider ZWD Casa Blanka and get also a Clean consciousness!!!

    Best

    If you hire a cleaning lady/man, it should be registered as “Haushaltshilfe” in the form of Minijob: this ensures you as private employer tax deductions and makes sure the cleaning lady/man is covered by insurance when working at your place. It´s a bit of paperwork, however it´s worth doing it. It is possible to accomplish the procedure online here https://www.minijob-zentrale.de/DE/01_minijobs/03_haushalt/01_grundlagen_minijobs_im_privathaushalt/01_meldung_hh_hat_vorteile/basepage.html;jsessionid=C12B7861A22C90E2DA1491A340878D0D
