Think Cleaning Service Prices are Out of Your Budget?

Posted on March 25, 2012. Filed under: About Sponge & Sparkle | Tags: , |

Picture of an Atlanta House Cleaning Professional - Sponge & SparkleDo you think hiring a house cleaning service is only for the wealthy? Nothing could be further from the truth. You do not have to be Thurston Howell III in order to afford, or benefit from, having your home cleaned on a regular basis.

Here are some points to consider.

1. Are we doing too much?

The work ethic is one of the best things about America, and yet it can sometimes cause us unnecessary stress. In many developed countries, it is customary for a middle class family to have a full-time housekeeper. (The same is true for many “underdeveloped” countries). Yet in America, many people think that having a maid service come in a twice a month is a sign of sloth.

2. What are the emotional costs of an untidy home?

Do you feel free to entertain whenever you wish? What is the first thought that comes to mind when an unexpected guest wants to drop by? If you are avoiding socializing because of the state of your home, what is being able to spend time with friends and loved ones in your home worth to you?

When you clean your home yourself, every smudge or stain can lead to recrimination. It’s a reminder of jobs undone, things you said you would keep in order. When a professional is cleaning your home, he or she passes no judgment, and has no emotional ties. His or her job is to clean thoroughly, as fast as possible.

3. Who does it best?

When you hire a professional cleaning service (which means they have employees who have been screened and trained) you benefit from their expertise. Since cleaning is what they do all of the time, they have a system, checklists, the right tools and materials to get the job done right.  A cleaning job that will leave you exhausted and take you several hours can be completed by professionals in a fraction of the time – and done right!

4. Who is accountable?

Have you ever had the experience of being so exhausted in the middle of scrubbing an area that you took a break, only to end up not finishing the job? When you hire a professional cleaning service, this simply does not happen. Professional cleaning services have standards and guarantees – they are accountable to you, and must finish the job.

5. Is a house cleaning service really out of your reach?

The hundreds of clients who rely on us to clean their Atlanta homes are not billionaires, but they know that the time they save and the peace of mind they experience is worth the small investment.

As they say:

6. Are you asking the right question?

Instead of saying, “I can’t afford a house cleaning service,” try asking “How can I afford a house cleaning service?” You may find items you routinely spend money on that are nowhere near as important to you as having a clean home.

Ethical Cleaning

Nice information… I recently came across your blog and I have to say that its wonderful thanks for sharing for all information, I am really impressed… Yes you are absolutely right In America, almost every people think that having a maid service come in a twice a month so they hire professional cleaning services….

I am impressed, I have to say. Really rarely do I come across a blog that is both informative and entertaining. Thanks for sharing this blog. I’ll be back for more.

I think we would all agree, everyone loves coming home to a clean house… however, nobody likes what it takes to get it that way!As most married working women do not have the time to complete necessary domestic chores. So, they either split them with their husbands, or hire a professional cleaning service. Since men are not especially keen on doing housework, they often opt for the cleaning service. although it affect our budget but its very neccessary for us.

There are many benefits of hiring professional house cleaning service.Professional cleaning companies keep up to date on the latest and best cleaning methods and products and also you can enjoy more quality time with friends and family, participate in your favorite hobbies, and remain stress free about home cleaning!
