Survey Says… Housekeeping Is Stressful
A 2016 survey by Huffington Post found that keeping their home clean and tidy is a major source of stress for people. In fact, 47 percent of people with stress reported household clutter as one of their stress triggers. This is equal to the amount of people stressed about unexpected bills like a car repair or hospital visit. The detailed survey also found that people with messy homes were twice as likely to feel stressed every day, compared to people whose homes were clean. If housekeeping is such a major source of stress, it makes sense to hire maid services for weekly or bi-weekly cleaning.
Who Hires Home Cleaning Services?
A majority of the clients hiring maid services are families in their 30s to 50s. Cleaning services used to be more of a “luxury” for well-off retirees and upper-class Americans. But today, working families are hiring home cleaning services because it helps them to manage their increasingly busy schedules. That new market demand has also made cleaning services more cost effective. We offer discounted rates for clients who require our services more often.
Major Time Saver
The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported in 2015 that the average adult spends 66 minutes per day doing house cleaning chores. That works out to nearly four 8-hour work days per month! Hiring maid services to free up that extra time can make a major impact on a family’s schedule. Imagine what you could do with the extra time on your hands for work, play, spending time with loved ones or even sleeping.
Protect Your Investment
For most people, buying a home is the most expensive investment they will make in their lifetime. What many people discover after buying a home is that maintaining it is a year-round process. Part of that process involves keeping the inside of the home clean so that it will last for a lifetime (or, so that it maintains its value when you decide to sell). Keeping every nook and cranny free of dust, grime, mildew and dirt takes a tremendous amount of time — and that’s just the inside of the home! Hiring maid services to clean your home at least twice a month allows you to stay on top of it.
Always Ready for Guests
Friends can pop in unannounced, kids can bring friends home from school unexpectedly… you never know who is going to turn up at your door. A major source of embarrassment for many people is having someone show up unexpectedly while the house is “a mess.” Regular home cleaning services will ensure that you’re always ready for life’s little surprises.
