Between family, work and everything else, it’s easy for something like cleaning to get pushed aside. But a chronically dirty home can cause problems, so keep an eye out for the signs that scream “you need a professional cleaner!”
Coming home at the end of a long day should be relaxing. Waking up should be invigorating. But if your home is a mess, it can be an obstacle to enjoying life. This may sound dramatic to some people who keep a tidy home. For those that don’t, you may need a professional cleaner. The benefits extend far beyond a clean living space.
If you’re unsure whether you need a professional cleaner, consider these 7 signs.
Your Surroundings Stress You Out
Piles of clothes, stacks of junk mail, counter stains and pet fur on the carpet can all be sources of stress. While not particularly bad in and of themselves, they have a nasty habit of making a bad day even worse – or putting a sour note on a good one.
These things also have an insidious way of coming back after you clean them, so without a cleaning routine (or a professional cleaner) its only a matter of time until the stress returns too. If you see these things and they affect your mood, it’s a sign that you need a professional cleaner.
You Can’t Find Things
Losing your keys in your own home is a cliché and not much of an issue. Misplacing them everyday and stressing about it is. If your home is so messy that you’re constantly looking for things, or you don’t have a routine for stowing your belongings, it’s probably a sign that you need a professional cleaner. And if keys can disappear, other things like phones, wallets and important documents can also get lost in the clutter.
Cleaning Takes Up a Lot of Your Time
Do you clean and clean for hours every week only to face the same mess (or worse) the next? Besides enlisting your family to clean and keep things organized, you may want to consider a professional cleaner. The hours you save will be well worth the investment, and you won’t resent the cleaning you do have to do every so often.
You Don’t Invite People Over
If you’re embarrassed to invite people to your home because it’s messy, that’s a sure sign you need a professional cleaner. It’s remarkable how a clean and tidy home can boost your confidence and your social calendar. We should all feel proud of the homes we live in, and a professional cleaning service is a great way to get that feeling!
Stuff Starts to Smell
If you smell foul odors coming out of drains or off furniture, you’re in need of a professional cleaner – or at least a thorough cleaning of your own. Generally, you want to clean your home prior to any smells developing. Once smells settle, they are difficult to get out and tend to worsen over time.
Your Family Gets Sick Often
If kids or other loved ones are getting more colds than normal, it might be because there is an abundance of dust, germs and bacteria in your home. Keeping a cleaning regimen will help reduce the amount of avoidable sickness in your family, though you may want to enlist the help of a professional cleaner to do so.
You Wish You Had a Cleaner Home
We’ll conclude this list with an obvious one. If you find yourself dwelling on how much happier you’d be with a cleaner home, you’re a perfect candidate for a professional cleaning service. There are lots of benefits to hiring one, not the least of which are savings in time and repair bills, but also confidence and reduced stress.
