Why Hiring a House Cleaner Will SAVE You Money, and Possibly Even Your Life
When someone first recommended the idea of hiring a house cleaner to me, I thought they were out of their mind.
Sure, I am a working Mom and it takes a lot to just get through the day let alone try to keep a tidy and organized home. But this is what I signed up for. If I hire a house cleaner people will think I am:
A. Frivolous and spoiled
B. Have too much money I don’t know what to do with it
I was really hesitant to hire a house cleaner. So I suffered week after week cleaning a room day and never having the satisfaction of a top to bottom clean house. To be completely honest, there were even times when I cut corners and didn’t even clean properly because I just needed to get through it.
For all of you working Mom’s and Dad’s I know you feel my pain. And are trying to justify hiring a house cleaning service as well. That’s why you are reading this post.
I am here to tell you once and for all WHO CARES WHAT PEOPLE THINK!
None of those things are true and I can prove it.
I didn’t take the leap into hiring a service on my own. My husband did it. If it were up to me I would have continued to suffer in silence.
I relinquished control and allowed the lovely young lady he hired to come in one Friday morning and clean. I told him that it would be just this time and only because it was a very busy week.
It was the best decision I ever made. Although there are many reasons I will share with you my TOP 3
- It’s Their Job
When I walked in the house after that first Friday morning I had realized that I truly SUCK at cleaning my house. Most people that know me would disagree as it is always pointed out how meticulous I am but not like this. Cleaning my own house is a chore for me. For her, it’s her job. She took pride in it. And it surely showed. She cleaned things I didn’t even know needed it. From that day forward I realized that no one can clean a house as good as someone who does it for a living. NO ONE. To this day I still can’t get the gleam on my hardwood that she can accomplish. Glorious!
2. You Can Actually Earn Money Doing it
If you are an entrepreneur like me, your job never stops. You only make money when you work. So unless you are a housecleaner, you are not making money when you are cleaning the house. For me, I always found myself sacrificing family time to clean the house, not even realizing this until I had someone else doing it for me. So between the extra hours of work I could put in and more time with my family I am richer then I ever thought possible.
Finally, the one you have been waiting for….
3. You Don’t Have to Be Rich To Be Able to Afford It
Hiring a house cleaner can actually fit in to any budget. Sure, you may have to make sacrifices, but believe me this is the one to do it on. First of all just do your research. Like any expense you should shop around for best rates. Secondly, you don’t have to go all out. Maybe just hire someone to come in once every couple of weeks or once a month. Or don’t go full service. See about having just the heavy work done like floor cleaning, windows, dusting. Then you can do the rest.
The bottom line is, in life we all need to learn how to ask for and accept help. This is the one area that I strongly suggest you consider. If nothing else.
Doctors say that a clean living environment improves overall mood, health and wellbeing. So you would be investing in your health! If you needed medication you wouldn’t think twice. So I don’t think you should about this either.
Go for it!
Hiring a house cleaner changed my life and I will never look back. Not for all the Kate Spade bags in the WORLD.
Until Next Time ….
