I can't remember enough about how spells work in that world- would the
enchanter have to think about each household task every time in order to get
it done (which would take up the whole of her/his time and energy) or would
they be able to set up permanent cleaning spells? (Would that still take up
their energy to work?) Or put charms on objects not to get dirty?
