Hire a Maid Service or a Single Cleaner?

admin

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. Now you’re wondering if you should hire a professional housekeeping service or should you pay a single person, perhaps a friend for this job. That’s a tough question. 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.

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!
