7 Reasons to Hire a Professional Cleaning Service

7 Reasons to Hire a Professional Cleaning Service

Monday Nov 29th, 2021

When it comes to deciding whether or not to hire a professional cleaning service, many people start the process by asking themselves if it’s financially worth it. Does it make sense to have one more monthly expense? Gem City Cleaning Solutions, a regional leader in residential cleaning, is confident it is for most people.

From potential monetary gains and time efficiencies to health benefits and stress relief, there are many reasons to make the leap. To help you decide what’s right for you, we’ve listed seven reasons to hire a professional cleaning service.

1. It’s a Smart Financial Decision

Some people may decline to hire a cleaning service due to limited expenses. However, it turns out that hiring a professional cleaner could be a wise financial decision as it:

  • Helps Maintain Your Health
  • Gives You More Time for Side Projects
  • Fosters Work Momentum
  • Boosts Your Mood
  • Fuels Your Local Economy

Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, the popularization of remote work has increased the need for a pristine home. Without a professional cleaner, you may severely limit your productivity. Doing so can hinder your income if it’s project or hourly-based.

2. Minimize Health Risks

People often forget that household cleaning supplies are loaded with chemicals. These chemicals can cause eye and throat irritation, headaches, and respiratory problems. There are also certain cleaning supplies that can’t be mixed, such as bleach and ammonia. However, professional cleaners know how to handle cleaning supplies properly, which means fewer risks for you and your family.

3. You Get Time Back

According to the American Cleaning Institute’s National Cleaning Survey Stats on Cleaning Habits, which surveyed the routines of 1,000 adults:

  • 28% cleaned their homes more than seven hours per week
  • 26% cleaned between three and four hours per week
  • 10% cleaned less than one hour per week
  • 74% perform light cleaning most often
  • 26% deep clean most frequently

By hiring a professional cleaning service, you’re giving yourself more time in the day. Whether you’d like to walk your dog after work, have dinner with friends, or play games with your children, you’ll rest easy knowing that the task of cleaning will not fall on you.

4. Complete the Job All at Once

Between balancing work and life, it can be hard to find a moment to clean. If you do find one, you may only have the time to clean a room a day—if that! It can also feel like by the time you finish a few rooms, the one you started with is already a wreck again.

Similarly, it may be daunting to take on a big home, especially if you have children. But remember, the longer you put it off, the worse it gets. If you hire a professional cleaning service while you address other matters in your life, the job will get done faster.

5. Achieve a Deeper Clean

As we go through our days, many of us have just enough time to hit the essential parts of the house. We clean the dishes, tidy up bedrooms, and square away the living room. But we often forget the more minor tasks such as washing our trash cans, wiping down handles, dusting window hangings, sanitizing remotes, etc.

But professional cleaners have a trained eye. They see many of the forgotten areas in a home that are in need of attention.

Not only will professional cleaners touch up areas in the home that you may not have considered, but they’ll also use supplies best suited to keep your home fresh even days after the cleaning has occurred.

6. Reduce Household Tension

Are you fighting with your significant other about whose turn it is to clean the bathroom? Are your kids not following through with their chores? Do you have roommates who aren’t doing their part?

No matter the case, household tensions may arise when there are stark differences in living and cleaning habits. If you’re feeling like all of the cleaning is falling on you (or perhaps you’re even part of the problem), hiring a professional cleaner may reduce the likelihood of conflict.

Don’t believe cleaning can impact a relationship? In 2019, cleaning company Durgol and the New York Post discovered that in a survey of 2,000 people ​​who live with a partner, roommate, or family member, “seven in ten would refuse to date or marry someone who was messy.”

7. Improve Mental Health

Overall, hiring a professional cleaner may prove beneficial to uplifting your mental health. When messes begin to seem uncontrollable, it often makes a person feel anxious and stressed.

In turn, we lose motivation and procrastinate. A professional cleaner can help eliminate the daunting feelings associated with household tasks, and they can simplify your cleaning routines.
