Many people feel perfectly comfortable maintaining their own home on a regular basis. But there are times when our schedules can get overwhelming or major changes occur in life that just might require that we seek help with cleaning our homes. If you ever feel like scheduling a once in a while cleaning, you are not alone. Only a small percentage of Americans have a regularly scheduled housekeeper. Below, you’ll find some instances where it may benefit you to consider hiring a cleaning service.
As the arrival of a new baby nears, it may become more difficult to physically complete the day-to-day chores. Many moms-to-be might even find themselves “nesting” and wanting to add the final touches to the nursery, or readjusting furniture throughout the home to fit the new arrival. This may be a crucial time for the family to rely on outside help so that they can instead focus on other details such as adjusting to and preparing for the new changes in their life.
Surgery Or Short Term Disability
Though friends and family members will likely step in to assist with daily activities, do yourself and them a favor and save the hard stuff for a professional. Your loved ones will appreciate being spared the messy stuff.
Extended Guest Visits
It may be a good idea to consider hiring a professional cleaning crew to help prepare for an extended visit. While it’s true that we may have a guest room ready for guests to temporarily reside in, very often this room is overlooked during the dusting or vacuuming simply because it isn’t used often. Even though the room isn’t being used, dust or pet fur can still travel in this room via cracks in the doorway or even air conditioning/heating vents. Worse yet, one thing we don’t often consider is how this room might be the most comfortable dwelling in the house for creepy crawlies due to the lack of human traffic. Think about it … if you were a spider, wouldn’t hiding under that warm, fluffy, undisturbed pillow sound cozy?
Extended Guests Depart
Of course it would make sense to hire a group of professionals to help with the cleaning details once guests have left. Not only will the guest room require a detailed cleaning job, but your guests are surely to have used your bathrooms, kitchen, and family rooms as well.
Holidays—Before And After
Let’s be honest, preparing for the holidays can be time-consuming and although fun, it can also be quite stressful. Between decorating, planning parties and meals, gift shopping, and preparing for guests, all while trying to maintain your regular schedule, it’s safe to say that it’s not just the time change that makes our days feel shorter! Save yourself some of the stress and hire a professional cleaning service to alleviate some of the stress so you can focus on a dazzling and fun holiday season for you and your guests.
