Clean Yourself or Hire a Professional

When is it best to hire professional cleaning services?

There are individuals who find cleaning their homes therapeutic and there are some that really hate it. If you’re flirting with the idea to carry out some serious spring cleaning, ask yourself the following questions:

Do you have the time?

If you’re planning on cleaning your entire home after work, then you need to have patience. It might take a few nights after work to have your house looking neat. How much time do you need? It depends on the number and size of rooms. Family members walking in and out of your home can also hinder progress. So, give this some thought before you decide to give your home a scrub down.

How many rooms need cleaning?

If you live in a studio apartment or two-bedroom home and you think you’re up for the task, then go ahead. However, if you have a five-bedroom home and not enough time, then consider hiring professional housekeepers.

Do you have the needed skills and knowledge?

Believe it or not, this is not a strange question to be asking when it comes to household cleaning. You may know how to wipe down surfaces or make your bed, but someone from a professional cleaning service will clean faster and ensure that every corner of the house is dirt-free. Our cleaning professionals specialise in non-toxic cleaners and have undergone specialised training in how to best clean appliances and flooring.

Do you have the proper cleaning products and equipment?

Cleaning companies that supply their own equipment will save you money on cleaning equipment and materials. They may also be able to bring special steam cleaners or tools to make sure the job is done well.

Do you have family members that may require specialised and regular cleaning?

If you have family members suffering from severe allergies or asthma, then cleaning your home regularly is a high priority. This means that you need to have enough time and energy to ensure a sanitary environment. If you have a physical condition that makes it difficult to bend, lift or carry heavy objects, then house cleaning may be a challenge.

Cleaning tasks that should be left to the professionals

Some things are better left to the professionals and the same goes for cleaning. There are basic cleaning tasks that you can accomplish yourself (dirty dishes, polishing your coffee table, etc.) but there are some tough cleaning spots that professional cleaning services can handle:

Carpet cleaning

While vacuuming might do the trick, it won’t get rid of most of the dust particles. A professional will carry all necessary equipment and products needed to remove unwanted stains and make sure your carpet is smelling fresh.

Upholstery

Unfortunately, it’s not as simple as taking a cloth to your furniture. Some stains are deep in the fabric and could be the possible origin of the odour you’re smelling. Professionals have the right equipment, products and knowledge to ensure that your favourite sofa is left looking like new.

Windows

Do you have the time to clean every single window in your home? If not, hiring a professional is a good idea. They have the best equipment and you’ll be guaranteed that every single corner will be spotless.

Benefits of hiring cleaning professionals

  • Your home is cleaned on your schedule: If you want your home cleaned on Tuesday, you’ll have it spotless on Tuesday the moment you walk through the door. Professionals will ensure it’s done fast and correctly.
  • Neat and orderly is how it will be done: Professionals don’t do half jobs.
  • More free-time: Use the free time to spend with your family and friends

According to studies, a clean home is good for the heart and soul. Cleaning your own home may be therapeutic but hiring a cleaning service will also ensure you’re left with a clean and stress-free environment.
