What are the needs of your family when it comes to house cleaning? Hiring a house cleaning service is more affordable than most people think. Here are just a few reasons why many busy families hire a cleaning service.
According to an article at care.com, “Does Your Family Need Help Around the House”
“Whether you’re busy with a family and career, or just want some occasional help around the house, getting a cleaning service is not only practical, it be a lifesaver. Here are some valid reasons you may need to hire some help.
You Work Full Time
After a busy 9-5, using your time off from work to clean the house depletes your energy and limits your availability to enjoy other activities. You might not need a daily housekeeper, but having someone clean once or twice a month will give you more time to do the things you enjoy or need get done.
Jennifer Thomas, a clinical psychologist and single mom from Minneapolis, Minn. says that without the help of her housekeeper, she would get less done and get much less sleep: “I have a housekeeper to free up my limited time to do important activities with my son and also take care of myself: doing yoga, walking outside, reading and spending time with friends and family.”
You Have a Busy Family Life
It’s hard to find time or energy for family outings and date nights when you spend your time cleaning, cooking and taking care of your children. If your schedule is already overwhelming, keeping the house in order becomes a daunting task that can take a toll on your marriage, as well as your health.
Author Melanie Bowden from Davis, Calif., has her hands full between writing, teaching and being a mother of two. Housework was the main issue she and her husband fought over. “I felt very frazzled when I had to keep up with all of the cleaning without outside help and I grew resentful toward my husband that he wasn’t doing more,” she says. Hiring a housekeeper not only lowered her stress level, but also kept her marriage intact. “I just love coming home to a clean house on those days — particularly when the bed sheets have been changed — that’s my favorite part,” she adds. According to Bowden, having a housekeeper is a valuable time-management tool that everyone should consider.
You Enjoy Entertaining
Whether you’re putting on a large event or just having company over, you don’t need to add cleaning to your to-do list. Save your time — and your energy — for the party by hiring someone to clean your home before and after the event. Even if you’re just having people over for dinner or to spend the weekend, knowing your housecleaning is taken care of takes the load off of you, and leaves you time to prepare for their arrival and enjoy the visit.” To read the entire article click here.
