‘To Clean or Not To Clean’
Wouldn’t it be great if it were that simple. The real question is ‘do I clean myself or do I hire a cleaning company’. I will ask a few questions and offer my solutions.
1) Do you LOVE housework and does it helps you unwind from a busy day?
2) Do you DETEST housework and try to avoid it at all costs?
3) Are you somewhere in the middle? Most of us are in the middle.
When I hear women, say that they don’t have time for activities they enjoy, I say hire a cleaning company and ‘try it you might like it’. Get about 3 cleanings done before deciding if it is right for you or not because you go through a few different emotions over that time. At first it is a little hard because they don’t clean exactly like you do, but stick with it for a couple of more and 1) you will love it and wonder why you waited so long or 2) you hate it and want to keep the job for yourself. At least then you are making a decision based on your experience. Imagine having more time for family and friends.
When hiring a cleaning company always ask for and check references. Also ask if they are Bonded & Insured so that if they break or damage your ‘Ming Vase’ it is covered. Require that they be covered by W.S.I.B., in the event of an accident in your home they are covered and it is not your homeowner’s policy at risk. The other item of importance would be a valid police check.
Communicate with the company and you are more likely to get the service you want. With all this in place you will feel more secure.
Cleaning Tip: Cleaning or refreshing your microwave- place a wet sponge or wet dish cloth into the microwave and run it on high for 2 minutes, leave it inside for about 5 to 10 minutes, this creates a sauna like condition and when you open the door it is a breeze to clean.
