The results are in. The cleaner ones win.

​How many of us used to try and clean the house ourselves, only watch cleaning day come and go. Often the tasks simply don’t get completed, keeping us from being free to relax or tackle other projects. Investing in regular cleaning services means having necessary chores finished properly, leaving you time so you can go play….and because you manage your life well and work hard you can feel less guilty about it!

9  benefits that make investing in a productive home a great idea

1. A HEALTHIER FAMILY
This first one is a bit obvious, but it’s worth mentioning. Bacteria, mold, dust, and dander cause everything from allergies to asthma. Regular cleaning sessions will significantly lower the potential for sickness, and create a healthier family overall.

 

2. MORE OPPORTUNITIES TO BE HOSPITABLE
I don’t know about you, but if I have a friend stop by and my house is a wreck, I’m more likely to over-explain why my house looks that way. It’s not only super embarrassing, I also go into anxiety-overdrive wondering what they think about my home and how it reflects on me as a person!

 

3. LESS MAINTENANCE AND REPAIRS
By keeping your appliances in good condition, you’ll spend less money to repair or replace them. And how do you do that? By cleaning them! It might not sound like a big deal, but I’m all about avoiding unnecessary costs, even if it means a little extra investment to keep things like my dishwasher running smoothly.  Our attention to detail delivers a positive return on your investment in our services.

Establish a regular cleaning service schedule for major appliances and trouble areas like porches and kitchen sinks.  Our recommendation is that you add one deep cleaning task a month to your cleaning service order.

 

4. A QUICK BURST OF EXUBERANCE AND PRIDE
Time with people we care about in a clean environment can be thrilling, especially if if we aren’t weighed down by clutter and dirt.   Taking a friend home to a clean house or knowing that the party you are planning will be held in spotless home is, in and of itself, a source of pride and a sense of well-being.

If you need a boost of confidence when the boss is coming over, or are on the fourth date and are cooking for that special person, just smile, be confident and show them how important they are to you.  This starts with a clean home!

 

5. NOT WASTING TIME
I know it sounds super simple, but investing in getting help to put your home in order has an amazing effect. Not only will you have less of a mess to manage later, you’ll easily find an item within seconds of needing it. This in turn, saves time, and time is just as important as saving money!

 

6. LESS GUILT ABOUT DOWNTIME
Have you ever felt guilty about watching Netflix, playing a game or reading a book? We have a really hard time relaxing, mostly because the moment many of us sit down we can think of twenty other things we should be doing, cleaning included!

 

7. INCREASED PRODUCTIVITY
I recently listened to a podcast by Jeff Goins, and he said something that sent off all sorts of lightbulbs in my head, “Clutter is the enemy of creativity.”

This is so true! I have personally found that it’s incredibly hard to function, let alone be creative, when you’re surrounded by dirt, grime, and most especially clutter.  This is so true! I have personally found that it’s incredibly hard to function, let alone be creative, when you’re surrounded by dirt, grime, and most especially clutter. I can’t even write a single blog post when there’s stacks of paper all over my desk.

Investing in a clean home gives you literal and mental space to work, and allows you to focus exclusively on the task at hand. Which….you guessed it, makes you WAY more productive.

 

8. MORE CONTROL
The next time you feel like your life is spiraling out of control, take a good look around your home. What do you see? Is it full of toys? Clutter? Stains? Crumbs? Those things might be a huge cause of anxiety and frustration.

The thing is, you can get control over those things. We can choose a respected and experienced service to sweep or vacuum crumbs off the floor, wipe down the counters, and get rid of clutter, which has an immediate effect on our mood.

Yep, there is a cost….and you do need to make arrangements, but having more control over your environment helps you feel in control of your life in general.

 

9. SENSE OF ACCOMPLISHMENT
Managing your household can be a daunting responsibility.  Maintenance, utilities, schedules, meals, laundry, kids, pets, recreation, bugs and vermin, and of course, cleaning, are all part of it.  Some things are best handled all by ourselves, other things not so much. Knowing the difference is crucial for your quality of life as a family and the value of your time and property.  You can easily cross one major item off your list by arranging professional cleaning services.

One quick glance over your clean and tidy home, and I promise you too will get warm fuzzies whenever you think about the investment you’re making in clean. It also encourages you to continue the habit in the weeks, months, and years to come.  Remember…. Clean is important.
