6 Barriers to An Effortlessly Clean Home

Studies show people spend 685 hours a year – that’s 28.54 days! – cleaning their home.  This statistic makes the case for having a professional handle your house cleaning.

Weekly or bi-weekly professional cleanings are your key to an effortlessly clean home.  Professionals can handle your “heavy lifting” cleaning, leaving you to only maintain the clean until their next visit.

Wouldn’t you like to  feel the way our client Judy does?

… coming home after a hard week, it is so wonderful to have everything so clean it sparkles.

So what’s getting in your way? If you know you need a professional Atlanta house cleaning service but haven’t hired one yet, one of the following myths might be stopping you from experiencing an effortlessly clean hone.


Myth #1 – “They” Will Judge Me

My team is there for one reason – to get your home sparkling clean. My customers provide the business that I have had since 1981 so that I can employ a wonderful team of Sparklers and stimulate the economy.

In short, we are not judgmental. We are grateful your home needs to be cleaned.

Myth #2 – I Need to Clean a Little – First

This myth is related to first one. A trained, professional house cleaner can get your home top to bottom clean in a fraction of the time. So don’t pile the stress on yourself, call the experts!

Myth #3 – House Cleaning Services are Only for Rich People

This is a uniquely North American myth. House cleaning services are not just for the wealthy. In fact, in many other countries, middle class families have a full-time housekeeper (and chauffeur) on staff.

Myth #4 – It’s for Lazy People

House cleaning services are for people who want to work smarter, not harder. What is a better use of 2 hours – spending time with friends and family or cleaning the bathroom?

Imagine – what could you do with an extra 28 days a year?

Myth # 5 – I Don’t Want People In My “Stuff”

The only time you need worry about security is if you hire a “trunk slammer” and not a professional cleaning service. All of our employees go through background checks and training. In addition, our employee retention is 15 to 20 times the industry average. While the industry turnover is 3 to 4 months, our employees stay with us an average of 5 years – and many have been with us for much longer.

Myth #6 – My Mother Could Do It – Why Can’t I?

Life is much more complicated than it was even 30 years ago. More information, more toys, more choices, a longer commute and a much longer workday means you are juggling more than your parents ever dreamed.

Isn’t it time you stopped measuring yourself against an unobtainable standard?

Make a list of what you are going to do with an extra 685 hours a year and call Sponge & Sparkle at (404-633-9652) to get your home sparkling clean.

You deserve it!
