You know you’d like to hire a house cleaning service.

You can’t wait 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 stopping you? If you haven’t hired a professional Atlanta house cleaning service yet, one of the following myths is probably getting in the way.

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.

As our client Bantley writes:

I have been using this cleaning service for at least 22 years. Their employees don’t come and go but stay with the company, which gives me a great degree of comfort…. I feel like they are part of our family!


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 most countries around the world, middle class families have a full-time housekeeper (and chauffeur) on staff.


As our client writes:

They are always on time, never miss an appointment, and are friendly. I could probably have an individual (instead of a commercial group) for less, but I feel like this is so well-run and reliable that it is worth it. Also, I get the sense that they treat their employees well, which matters a lot to me.

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? That’s the average amount of time (685 hours) spent cleaning.

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.

As our client Ann writes:

They are always careful with our “stuff”–no breakage in 15 plus years. They are totally flexible when I need to change our regular cleaning day. And they are so very nice and friendly!


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!
