Between taking the kids to school, extracurricular activities, working at your job, and still having time to make dinner at the end of the day, the last thing you want to think about is cleaning the entire house.
Here are some questions to ask yourself in order to determine if a cleaning service is right for you.
1. What does a maid do?
Contrary to what most people think of a cleaning service, a “maid” is not that cliché woman dressed in black in white that lives in a home and basically cleans all day, every day. In the real world, a maid or cleaning service will come to your home once a week for about an hour, giving them enough time to go through each of the rooms in your house to get everything clean. They will normally take special requests, as well.
2. How often do you ACTUALLY clean your house?
If you answered any duration longer than weekly or biweekly, then you could probably use some extra help. This is typically the major reason that homeowners will choose to hire a cleaning service. Who has time for that, anyway?
3. Are you satisfied with the cleanliness of your home?
Depending on how often you clean your house, how would you rate the cleanliness of your home? Try this – run your finger across your mantle or counters and see how much dust your finger picks up. Do you wish it were cleaner?
4. Is a cleaning service in your budget?
First, get some quotes from different cleaning companies to determine if you can afford it. Then, try it out once or twice and ask yourself if it’s worth it.
If you weigh the value you get from a maid service against the cost of a maid service, you’ll see that value wins almost every time.
So, is a cleaning service right for you?
