Does a Jewish homeowner need to be concerned that non-Jewish maids might perform idol worship with his possessions?

Would this make any of the things in his house forbidden, or no?

What precautions is he obligated to take to prevent his things from becoming forbidden?

I am concerned about food, as well as non-food, items.

  • @shmosel that's not true. We assume idol worshippers have sex with animals and libate wine when unattended. Commented May 9 at 11:31
  • Great to have you here! Mi Yodeya offers tons of great information, but does not offer personalized, professional advice, and does not take the place of seeking such advice from your rabbi. Your question as currently formatted appears to be a solicitation for such personalized advice. As such the community will likely vote to close this question. Questions can be edited in order to be brought back in line with site policy. Commented May 9 at 11:56
  • @ClintEastwood those are the exceptions to the rule.

    I edited your text to save the question. It was phrased in a way that was beneath the standards of the site and had several votes to close. Commented May 9 at 14:50
