How Much Does a Maid Service Cost and Is it Worth the Money?


The price for a maid service will vary from place to place. It will also vary depending on the time of year. Maid services tend to be somewhat seasonal businesses. There are many people who hire a maid to come regularly; this is the most cost-efficient model. However, others will hire a maid to come once or twice a year. They’ll do this usually in the spring or before they have guests during the holiday season. That makes the business somewhat seasonal. As a result, some maid services will have special surge prices.

What To Do If the Maid Breaks Something


It’s inevitable anytime you have someone working in your home, that something may be broken. They lift things, dust under them, clean things, dust around them and wipe them down all day long. If you lift items and put them back down thousands of times every day, you are inevitably going to break one or two of them. Your maid is no different. There are a few ways to respond to your maid breaks something. The first thing to do is to talk to your maid before things get broken.

A Few Special Requests For Your Maid


If you regularly hire house cleaners, you know what they usually do. They clean the same areas in the same ways pretty much every time they come by. That helps keep your home stay tidy and clean. However, there are a few special requests you might make of your maids. These are not requests that you should make all of the time, but they’re useful for spring cleaning or once a year special occasions. Understand that if you make special requests, you will need to schedule it ahead of time so they can adjust their schedules, and you will need to pay more for the additional time needed.

Can a Maid Service Make You Healthier?


If you have persistent allergies or illnesses, you might find that your home itself is to blame. Substances in your home could be making you ill. Common culprits are mold, mildew, dust, and insects. These allergens are sometimes filtered out by a HEPA HVAC filter but not always. Furthermore, you have to change your filters regularly to make sure they stay effective. You also need to vacuum carpets, mop hardwood, and dust all over your house. That is the only surefire way to remove dust and allergens. If you don’t have the time or energy to do this yourself, you should hire a maid service.

Hire a Maid Service or a Single Cleaner?


You’ve decided that it’s time to hire some help to clean your home. You’re tired of working all day, just to come home and clean your house all evening and weekend.

It depends on what you’re looking for. The one advantage that most single person cleaning companies, or friends in this case, typically have is price. They have less overhead, therefore they can charge less. While this sounds good, there are some considerations to keep in mind prior to entering into an agreement with an individual to clean your home. Here are just a few.

Housekeeping Leaves More Family Time

Housekeeping for the Modern Family


As a society, we are busier than ever! It seems like everyone in the household always has something to do. Between work and school, soccer practice and board meetings, there just isn’t enough time in the day to do everything that must be done. Housekeeping for the modern family provides something that very few services can. Significant amounts of time. How long does it take to clean up after a family? We’re not talking about putting away the toys at night. We’re talking about the deep cleaning that really makes a difference. Scrubbing baseboards and window ledges. Scouring bath tubs and showers. Cleaning on top of the refrigerator! Most of us would prefer to spend a little quality time with our families if possible instead of cleaning our home.

What’s in Your Cleaner?

There are many choices to be made when cleaning your home. One of the most important is how often and what kind of cleaner will you need? Will you choose something made from strong chemical agents or a household cleaner made from natural ingredients? The best approach is to use only a product as strong as you need for the job. If you keep up with regular daily and weekly cleaning you can use mild cleaners. With less frequent cleaning, deeper cleaning and stronger cleaners may be required.  Either way you’ll want to make sure the cleaner you use is both effective in removing dirt and grime, and safe for you and your family. Here are a few natural cleaning agents to use next time you tackle your housekeeping chores!
