Remember when you told your neighbor that you did not need to have a clean house to be happy? You told your friends that a little clutter around your home did not bother you if it means you are able to be a mother who spends time with her children. It sounds good, doesn’t it? It sounds good to tell your family and friends that a cluttered kitchen island and dusty furniture are just part of a family where parents spend time with their children. It’s what the good moms say, right? Unfortunately, it’s a lie.
If playing board games in the living room with your family and attending all of your children’s activities are a priority for you, it’s a given that sometimes a few things at the house go unfinished. When you get home from your part time job and pick the kids up from school, you barely have time to get something started for dinner so that you can eat at home together. Running the vacuum and dusting are the last things on the list. Maybe it is time you find a professional house cleaner to help with the rest of the chores.
On average, women spend an average of 2.6 hours per day doing household chores and cleaning. If you are barely finding time to throw a load of laundry in once in the morning and then again at night, the chance of you being able to keep the house as clean as you want is pretty slim.
In a survey by the Soap And Detergent Association (SDA), however, 97% of respondents said they think their families appreciate a clean home. Everyone does. It is relaxing to come home to a clean smelling kitchen, freshly cleaned bathrooms and rooms that have been vacuumed and dusted.
Cleaning services and house cleaner agencies provide bathroom cleaning, bathroom cleaning and every room in between. Many services also have a list of deep cleaning tasks they rotate through every time they visit. One week it might include wiping down all of the refrigerator shelves, the next week it might be dusting all of the window sills and blinds.
While the SDA reports that 18% of homeowners always have a lot of clutter around the house, research also shows that 98% of homeowners feel good about themselves when their house is clean. What starts as a small amount of clutter can quickly become an unmanageable mess if left for too many days. Just the process of putting a few things away to prepare for the cleaner can bring control to the chaos that comes with our busy lives. A house cleaner is an investment in you, your home, and your family.
