How Valuable is a Cleaning?

Plenty of people dream of coming home to a sparkling clean house, without having to lift a finger. But for many, there’s something holding them back from hiring a housekeeping service. Specifically? The price.

Some homeowners are reluctant to pay for high quality cleaning work. And we understand that mentality! Really, we do, believe it or not.

But how about this? Instead of thinking about the price of a cleaning, what if you thought about the value of a cleaning?

Don’t think about what a clean house costs! Instead, think about all the amazing benefits a clean house can bring to you and your family.

A professional home cleaning offers a ton of truly valuable perks that can improve your life in many different ways. And we’re not just talking about the money in your wallet. We’re talking about major value, added to almost every part of your daily life.

For example, bringing on a cleaner can:

Save you from stress

A cluttered, dirty home can be a stressful environment. According to one 2013 survey, 84 percent of stressed Americans say “they worry that their home isn’t clean or organized enough.”

As one anonymous respondent said in the survey: “Clutter in the house causes me to feel stressed when getting something done or getting ready for anything.”

This isn’t the way it should be, but it’s the way it is! Our homes should be comfortable and relaxing, places where we can escape from workday hassles and other sources of anxiety. Instead, we let them get dirty or disorganized, and they turn into a major cause of stress in and of themselves!

Even worse, a dirty home can create tensions between family members. Parents may fight with kids about putting their toys away. Partners may get into arguments over who they feel does more of the cleaning.

Hiring a professional cleaning service to routinely clean your house or apartment may be just what it takes to stop this cycle of stress and anxiety in its tracks!

Make you healthier

In addition to increasing your stress levels, a dirty house can actually make you feel sick!

According to a study from the Indiana University department of Physical Activity, there is a direct connection between “clean houses and healthy people.” In fact, the study of nearly 1000 Americans found that people with the cleanest homes were also the healthiest and most active overall.

We know that there are all sorts of health hazards lurking in dirty homes. In fact, the EPA once estimated that indoor air can be up to five times more polluted than the outdoors. In a dirty home, you’re more likely to breathe in dust mites, pet dander, mold, and harmful bacteria than you are in a clean house.

How much is your family’s health worth? A thorough, detailed house cleaning, conducted by professionals, won’t just make your home look better – it could help your whole family feel better, too!

Give you back your time

While it’s true that some people like to clean, plenty of others downright hate it. Even for those people who do like to have a personal hand in cleaning the house, it’s hard to deny that it can be very, very time consuming.

This is especially true if you’re attempting an in-depth cleaning of all of the rooms in your home, our routine service. Do you have hours to devote to dusting, sweeping, polishing, organizing, or disinfecting?

Bringing on a cleaning professional to help can give you back your valuable time. That means more free time for yourself, and more time to spend with your family. Think about it… What could you do with all those free hours you won’t have to spend cleaning? Finish your reading list? Hit the gym? Have a family game night? The choice is yours!

Save you money

Could hiring a professional cleaning service actually mean more money in your pocket? In some cases, the answer is yes!

The writers at U.S. News & World Report, a great resource for all things life and money, put it this way: Take much time it would take you to clean your house, plus your hourly rate based on your salary, and compare that value against the cost of hiring a professional.

Here’s a situation to help explain:

“…let’s say you make $100 an hour. If it would take you five hours to clean your house, you are, in a sense, spending $500 when you clean your home. Instead, you could spend $150 for a two-person cleaning crew to do the same work, or even better work, in two hours.”

Make sense? In other words, if you’re taking time off work to clean, that sacrifice could cost you much more than it would take to just hire a team to do the job for you!

Or what if you work from home? Studies show that working in a dirty or cluttered office can lead to “decreased productivity” and “unprofessional behavior.” If you can’t focus or get things done, you’re losing money every minute!

Finally, consider the price of cleaning materials, including tools and supplies. High quality products can be expensive, especially if you’re focused on going green and buying eco-friendly materials. On the other hand, we’ll bring all the equipment and products we’ll need straight to your house, so you won’t ever have to worry about stocking up on cleaning supplies! That’s money that gets to stay in your wallet!

Here’s the bottom line…

Peace of mind. Higher energy levels. A more comfortable living space. More time to spend with your friends and family. These are all truly priceless things – and they all come to you as part of a professional cleaning. It’s hard to think of any other service that can deliver so many lasting perks, with so little investment!
