What is the difference between hiring a professional cleaner and doing it yourself?

There are a few things that people who’ve never had their house cleaned before probably have never realized. It is completely understandable for someone to want to clean their own space, and to feel like they are good at it. In fact, we encourage everyone to learn basic home cleaning skills, because even if you already hire a professional regularly, it is always important to think about how you want to manage and maintain your space.

We know plenty of reasonable people who’ve never hired a cleaner before simply because they feel like it’s too luxurious for them. They don’t see the point of hiring someone to do something they feel they can do themselves, and that is completely understandable if you’ve never seen the difference first-hand. So we decided to touch on just three things that we think make hiring a cleaner a terrific choice, for your home and your life.

Dust allergies: When you clean your own home, usually the focus is placed on the things that are visible. Wiping the kitchen counters, vacuuming the living room floor, scrubbing the toilet. But what you are bound to miss with an untrained eye are the invisible things! When is the last time you’ve vacuumed your window shades? Or wiped the back of your toilet? Or dusted your picture frames? These are just a few of the things a trained cleaner knows to address. For someone with dust allergies, this can make a huge difference in your quality of life!

Mold: Mold is ever present anywhere where moisture can be found. In the basement, in your kitchen, in your bathroom, or even any other room in the house. Everyone knows mold is no joke, but do you always know what it looks like, or how it’s best dealt with? Because a good cleaner certainly does!

Time: How much is your time worth to you? There are only 24 hours in a day, about a third of which we spend sleeping, and even more of which we spend working, commuting to work, or doing work related things. With your third left, you still need to feed yourself, clean yourself, take care of your kids or pets if you have any, and run all of your other errands. See what we’re getting at? When you hire a cleaner, all the time you’d spend managing your house is done professionally, in much less time than it would take you to do it yourself. What would you do with that extra time?
