When both spouses are working full time jobs, plus raising a family, home life can quickly become a battleground when it comes to house cleaning. No one wants that. In order to keep the peace and avoid using cleaning as a trigger to your marital concerns, why not hire someone to do the cleaning for you? It may just be a better investment than most mutual funds. It will undoubtedly lead to better returns in a much shorter time; not to mention it is far less expensive than couples’ therapy.
Remember all those things you find yourself saying you wish you could do if you just had the time. Well, make the time by giving up a chore that most likely isn’t your favorite. By setting a scheduled-maid service into your weekly routine, you will find that tidying up is a breeze allowing you the opportunity to take up welding, free form poetic haiku or whatever turns your crank.
Anyone with pets knows that their little bladders may not be up to a full time workday left alone in the house. Many cleaning services are more than willing to let your pet out into the backyard for a romp, while they clean. Your pet will get some fresh air, and you will get peace of mind knowing that there might be one less carpet stain for the cleaner.
Imagine your spouse took a day off to clean your home top to bottom to surprise you; right, like that would ever happen. But it would be nice, wouldn’t it? So, why not have a professional make it happen? Walking into your home and smelling freshly cleaned carpets and feeling dust-free shelves might be better for your blood pressure than yoga.
Is every member of the house contributing to the cleaning? Are you doing way more than your fair share? If you find you have to beg, plead, and blackmail people into doing chores, you may find that your time at work is becoming your escape from cleaning supplies. Home should be a relaxing refuge, not a battleground; so, why not hire a cleaning service and stop trying to guilt the family into action. After all, they are probably just as overscheduled as you.
Many people work outside the home and are concerned that their home and belongings are unprotected while they are absent. Having a regular cleaning service can act as an extra home security measure that will give you greater peace of mind.
We all have house blindness. We see the memories we have made and the toys on the ground; but we may not see the accumulated dust, dirt, and debris that can gather in the corners. A cleaning service will clean parts of your home that you may have never got around to cleaning or may not have realized is cleanable; like that bathroom fan that may be clogged up with more hair than your shower drain.
You can always fire someone who isn’t cleaning up to your standards and expectations. Start with yourself. When you employ a service, you set the agenda and the standards. If you aren’t pleased you can discuss it with them and ask for more; which is so much easier than berating yourself for never getting around to the outside window washing.
