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.

Here is where a housecleaning company can make a real difference to your overall quality of life. The time that you save because your housekeeping has been taken care of can be invested in your children, significant other, or hobbies…the people and things that make you happy! The time you save by having a clean home will allow you to spend more time with your family, helping to create bonds that will last a lifetime. You only have one chance to spend time with your children while they’re young!

A study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences suggests that “buying time”, or hiring companies to perform services for you, promotes overall happiness. The study states that, “surveys of large, diverse samples from four countries reveal that spending money on time-saving services is linked to greater life satisfaction”. The feeling of having more time to do the things you want to do cannot be overstated.

Look around your home and determine for yourself if you’d rather keep it clean or gain valuable time by hiring a maid service to handle this chore for you. You’ll likely find that you feel far better at the end of the week having spent that time with your family instead of a scrub brush and cleaning agents!
