Valentine’s Day Tip – This Could Supercharge The Romance In Your Relationship

Posted on February 12, 2016. Filed under: Atlanta House Cleaning | Tags: , , |

Want more romance? Try a clean home.

Valentine’s Day this year falls on the long holiday weekend, which means good news for the romantics among us.

Speaking of romance, would you like more in your relationship?  An in-depth study of close to 7,000 married couples found a surprising solution – it turns out that married couples with cleaner homes have more sex.

The study suggests that  the connection between the willingness to do household tasks together indicates shared commitment to the home and thereby to each other.  Also, it says the reward of a serene, well-tended home in and of itself may be conducive to intimacy.

Here’s an idea: hire a professional Atlanta maid service so that you spend less time on household chores, which means more time for intimacy.

Don’t forget about the gift! Give a gift certificate for a maid service!

Work, Work and More Work? We All Need Time to Relax!

Posted on September 16, 2012. Filed under: Uncategorized | Tags: , |

Relaxing In Front Of The FireWe all need time to relax, and chores are getting in the way!

In a  study published in 2011, sociologists followed 30 couples (all of whom worked more than 30 hours a week)  tracking their  activities every 10 minutes and taking saliva samples to measure stress.

The study found both women and men who devoted  the most time to housework had higher levels of evening cortisol  (commonly known as the “stress” hormone).

Why?  Because housework is … work so it is more likely to keep your cortisol spiked than doing something that is calming.

“Our bodies need to recover physiologically after work,” says Darby Saxbe, one of the  co-authors of  the study at the University of Southern California.

“These couples were returning to homes where dinner needed to be cooked, laundry needed washing and folding, etc,  and instead of unwinding, these couples took on more work.”

In Atlanta, busy professional people know they can trust Sponge & Sparkle to  care for their homes with skill and dependability and relieve them of high stress levels!

Battle of the Cleaning Standards – Men vs. Women

Posted on August 2, 2012. Filed under: Cleaning Bedroom, Kitchen Cleaning | Tags: , |

Arguing His Case, But Still CleaningThe average  British woman spends 3 hours a week redoing her  partner’s  housework, according to a study done in the United Kingdom!

Cleaning the kitchen and fluffing the pillows were the primary chores that men failed to execute to their wives’ satisfaction.  And among the top 10 complaints, 3 were about making the bed!  (from Real Simple magazine).

One can only imagine the resentment these women feel because, really if a  person is going to do something, then why not do it right?

Couples also find themselves fighting about the division of labor, as women usually feel that they do a disproportionate amount of housework compared to men.   This can’t be that good for a relationship, and this is where a couple might want to seriously consider hiring a professional cleaning service.

Hiring a professional cleaning service makes for more harmony in the home, giving couples one less thing to argue about, more time to have fun together.

Hiring a service puts the whole cleaning  dilemma  in neutral territory  – where both partners can be united –  in the satisfaction of knowing they have gone a long way to solving one of the  more  “nagging’  (!) problems for a  relationship,  and being able to enjoy the home that they have created together!
