Myths about home cleaning services are about as common as stoves in kitchens. You’ve heard them: you have to be rich to hire a home cleaning service, you have to be home when the cleaners come, blah, blah, blah. Before you listen to the naysayers when you’re overwhelmed with, well, life, take a deep breath. Then break through the talk and find out the truth about those pesky home cleaning service myths:
You have to be rich to hire a cleaning service. Not true! Hiring a cleaning service is far more affordable than the myth implies. In addition, the old adage “time is money” rings true when considering whether to hire a cleaning service. Do you make more money working at your own business or cleaning your house? Do you want to spend every minute of your time away from the office cleaning your house?
Cleaners clean the whole house. Home cleaning services are flexible. If you only want the cleaners to clean the high traffic areas, or just the bathrooms and kitchens, contact the cleaning service and specify the jobs you want done. They clean the areas you want, when you want.
You have to be home when the cleaners come. You don’t have to be home when the cleaners come. Just call your cleaning service and make the necessary arrangements for entry.
You have to hire a cleaner to come on a daily basis. How often do you need or want a cleaner to come? You can arrange for a weekly, monthly or quarterly clean—or even just when you have guests coming to visit. Cleaning services come when you want, on your schedule.
People who hire cleaning services are lazy. Not sure where this myth came from, but let’s be serious. Homeowners who hire cleaning services understand what their time is worth, and where to put their efforts. Working, volunteering or being with their kids is a higher life priority.
Have any more questions? Contact your local cleaning service. They can give you truthful information straight from the source. A cleaning service can also provide references and give you an estimate so you have a clear idea of cost. With a little bit of research (and a lot of breaking through the home cleaning service myths), you can achieve your goal of a clean house without sacrificing your professional or family commitments.
