Dust Bunnies Not Looking So Cute Anymore? Get Rid Of TheM Fast

House cleaners

Sometimes there just aren’t enough hours in the day to do everything you need to do: go to work, raise a family, take care of the house and the yard…and trying to do all of them can leave you feeling stressed out and overworked. Even worse, you may feel inadequate or defeated if each task isn’t done to your satisfaction–something that can feel impossible with only 24 hours in the day. Indeed, almost 85% of Americans who are stressed out attribute some of that stress to worrying about the cleanliness and organization of their home–most feel it isn’t clean or organized enough! So what do you do if you find yourself in this situation? Consider hiring a professional house cleaner to take some of the load off your shoulders.
I Can Take Care Of It–Why Hire Out?
If you’re worried that hiring a professional house cleaner feels too elitist or snobby to you, rest assured: the Department of Commerce has already predicted that in the next few years, the majority of households with two incomes (80% of them) will use the services of outside cleaning help. It’s not just for the extremely wealthy anymore–families are enlisting more outside help than ever. From professional house cleaners to nannies, the American family is evolving and needing more help to keep their lifestyle going.
Why Isn’t Some Basic Cleaning Good Enough?
Even if you’re managing to keep things picked up and the floors swept every now and then, you may want to at least hire out for some deep cleaning every couple of weeks. Germs that you thought you’d taken care of could still be lingering around. Did you know that certain types of germs can exist on dry surfaces (think your kids’ toys, your door handles, etc.,) for up to a few hours. They thrive even more on moist surfaces (bathroom sinks, etc.,) for up to three days. Your kitchen can be a germ explosion too, especially if you cook a lot of meat. Salmonella, for example, can survive being frozen and live on dry surfaces for up to a day.
What Kind of Cleaning Services Exist?
There are more options for hiring cleaning services now than ever. With the increased demand, cleaners have developed more flexibility in the range oef services they offer–everything from coming in daily to do day-to-day things like sweeping, mopping, and dishes, to deep cleaning surfaces, where they can really tackle all the grimy spots you just haven’t had time for. This could include stuff like washing windows, scrubbing down baseboards, and more. You can also enlist hourly cleaning if you don’t need that much done, like surfaces wiped down or items put away.
You deserve a few hours of the day to yourself. If you’re among the Americans who feel routinely very stressed out by your home, make moves to change that! You don’t have to do everything yourself and it’s okay to ask for help. (Besides: it’s been shown that women spend almost 13,000 hours in their lifetime cleaning a home, while men spend less than 6,500 hours.) Hire professional help and take some time off!
