Your life is hectic as it is. Hire a professional cleaning service to make it easier.
There comes a time in our lives when work, family, events, health, and so much more take over and sometimes we forget or don’t have time to focus on something that is needed, a clean space. It makes you think, can I afford this luxury or is this a sign of laziness? But have you ever really reflected on the idea of why you should hire a professional cleaning service?
Contracting a maid service can be affordable, and it is a way to manage your time wisely.
Whether you’re busy with a career, family, obligations or need some occasional help around the house, hiring a professional cleaning service is not only useful, it can be a lifesaver and time giver. Here are some valid reasons you might need to hire some help.
You Have a Full-Time Job
After a day of meetings, interacting with clients and co-workers, answering emails, carrying heavy objects, or just taking care of children, your energy is depleted, or you want to make time to take part in your favorite activities. Keeping the house clean is the last thing on your mind.
You might not need a day to day maid but having someone clean more than once a month will give you the opportunity to do the things you appreciate or want to make time for.
Cyndi Garrett, a realtor and business owner, says that without the help of her weekly housekeeper, she would have less time to manage her successful business from having to clean and organize herself. “One of the best decisions I’ve made is to contract a cleaning service. I don’t have to worry about chores and now have enough time to spend with my family.”
You Enjoy Having Parties
You enjoy hosting small or large gatherings, but you dread cleaning up before and after. Save your time and energy for the party by contracting a cleaning service for your home before and/or after the gathering. You have done a lot of work by organizing this event; you don’t need to add cleaning to your list. Whether it be a large or small event, knowing your house cleaning is taken care of, takes a huge load off and leaves you time to organize and prepare for your visitors arrival or departure.
You Have No Clue How to Clean
It’s okay; we get it! It’s not like we were taught how to clean in school. Cleaning isn’t as easy as just turning on the washing machine or a vacuum. There are tricks and processes learned through time, experience, and trial. There are even specific cleaning products you should not use for pets, children, allergies, etc. Hiring a company who knows exactly what to use can save you all the trouble. The housekeeper can even demonstrate the best methods and tricks but be cautious; you might just like having her do it and it’s okay!
You Dislike Cleaning
Who doesn’t? But some people are better at cleaning than others. You’re not lazy whatsoever just because cleaning isn’t your forte. Why waste time and energy doing something you’re not good at or even interested in when you can have someone do it for you? If cleaning your home takes you a good couple of hours and you dread every minute of it, maybe contracting a maid service is the answer. By letting them devote their time to their expertise, it will give you time to be more productive and do what you love. But wait, what if you don’t have the budget for an everyday house cleaner or even weekly? Finding a professional company who does monthly cleanings is vital.
Busy Family Life Gets in the Way
It’s difficult finding the time and having the energy for family outings, date nights, the kids’ soccer game, cooking, and making sure you or your children’s health is in order. If your schedule is looking a lot like this, most likely you feel overwhelmed at times. The task of keeping a clean home is overwhelming and may be daunting, which can take a toll on your health and maybe even your relationships.
Full-time teacher and writer, Laura Patrick, has her hands full with teaching, writing, and taking care of two Dalmatians. When it came to housework, she and her husband bickered on who would take on the tasks, but with both being full time in their careers, it was not something they looked forward to. “We both felt overwhelmed with all the housework we had to keep up with, and we grew resentful towards each other because of it,” she says. “Hiring a maid service lowered our stress levels immensely and has kept our marriage intact. It’s such a relieving and great feeling coming home to a clean space and being able to spend quality time with my husband,” she adds. According to Patrick, hiring a maid service is a valuable time management tool that she recommends to everyone.
You Deserve Some Time Off
We get it! We all deserve some time off once in a while. Many do it through manicures, massages, reading a book or a good game of golf, but you can also pamper yourself by not doing house chores or cleaning up after the kids. It’s a simple but nice luxury that will give you some extra time to do the things you enjoy. So, go ahead, you deserve it!
Elderly Family Members
Sometimes it’s not you who wants or needs a housecleaner, but your aging parents, grandparents, or relatives who might need some help. As people age, it becomes more challenging to take care of daily tasks and chores around the house, which can cause it to become a hazardous environment. A cluttered room can cause them to fall, or a dirty dish can make them ill. Creating and keeping a clean home is very important for anyone’s health.
Leslie Coleman hired a cleaning service to tidy her mother’s little home twice a week. “My mother has arthritis, so between her illness and her age, it was difficult for her to keep her home cleaned and organized just the way she likes,” she says. “I already had my hands full with my little ones and work around the house, so the housekeeper was a huge help when it came to making sure my mom had a clean and safe living place.”
New Baby on Board
Congratulations! A new member of the family is an exciting event and you want to spend each, and every moment with your little one. Unfortunately, a new baby means extra cleaning and laundry which can be too much for an exhausted new parent to handle, this is when a maid service can help out. Have friends or family that want to give you a gift? Instead of balloons and flowers, suggest they all chip in for a cleaning service to help out for a couple of weeks.
With life just moving forward, time is precious, and it shouldn’t be wasted on house work or worrying about your love ones. Something simple like hiring a cleaning service can make a big difference, especially when it comes to time.
