Let's Talk About Domestic Cleaning
What do you need help with?
Cleaning the house is one of those jobs that has to be done, but do we really want to do it? Couldn't we just get someone else in to do it? I'd certainly opt for someone doing it even though I've cleaned other people's houses and quite enjoyed it ...
Cleaning your own home is not the same though is it? Although it’s a lovely feeling when everything looks and smells fresh and clean and it's all tidy, but you can't just stand and admire it can you? You have to live in it, so the dirt/mess/clean/tidy cycle repeats over and over again!
Weighing up the pros and cons of getting a domestic cleaner is a simple task if you just ask the questions that are relevant, below are my questions:
For a working professional ...
How much money can I earn in two hours? If I clean the house instead of working for those two hours, how much money am I losing? If I get a cleaner instead how much will it cost me? Would it relieve stress?
For a parent with children at home ...
How long does it take me to clean my home? How long would it take a cleaner to clean my home? What could I do instead of cleaning my home? What does it cost? What stress would be relieved if I had a cleaner? And how much more quality time could I spend with the kids?
Extra Help's services are not set in stone so you can change what you want us to do for you each week. Some weeks, I have ironing done and others my Extra Help helper will do errands like shopping and going to the post office.
The idea is that your Extra Help helper becomes a real pair of helping hands. Get someone to help you in the morning and then you can get them to put dinner on later in the day. It works for me and when I walk in the door, I can see a clean house and smell dinner is cooking with no messing around.
So ask yourself this: ''could I do with a helping hand and what could I get someone to help me with to release pressure in my life so I can work smarter or enjoy quality time with my family or, of course, have some relaxation and time out of the everyday rush of modern society?''. It's worth thinking about isn't it?
I always hear people say "my mum tidies up before the cleaner comes ... how silly". I explain she probably does that as a lot of cleaning companies will only clean - they won't tidy ... but Extra help cleaners do both!
