Do It Yourself vs. House Cleaning Services?
Since I work at a house cleaning company, the answer seems like a no-brainer, but I can honestly relate to the Do It Yourself (DIY) way of thinking.
Since I have started at Clean and Simple Cleaning, I have not always chosen to have my house cleaned. I thought it was a luxury. A luxury that I did not need to spend money in the first place. I also felt since I am physically able to clean my house, I should be the one to clean it. I wanted to be superwoman. All with a clean home, behaved children, dinner on the table, and a paycheck in the bank. Luckily for me (and probably my kids too), I gave up being superwoman as I would always fall short and missed what was truly important.
Here are the reasons why I changed seeing house cleaning services as a luxury to extremely valuable:
- My time is valuable
- I have other things I like to do MORE (much more!)
- When cleaning my own house I get involved in the other little projects like reorganizing the bookshelf or pantry shelves, so it takes more time when I only have a little available in the first place.
- My schedule is full, so I end up putting cleaning off until later. Which, unfortunately, led to my home with two kids and a puppy getting ‘well-used’ and cluttered.
However, now that I have house cleaning services:
- I get everything picked up and clutter-free. So my house gets picked up on a more regular basis. Making it easier, faster and more manageable.
- It provides me time and energy to tackle those little projects that used to get pushed to the side or get left half done.
- It adds balance to my life. Which I, personally, believe is invaluable especially as a single mom.
Having house cleaning services is one of the best things I have done for myself and my family. Having a clean home adds a peacefulness to my home and my mind. It reduces my stress. Furthermore, it helps to allow me to be present with my family. And not to always think that I need to clean our bathroom and the floors vacuumed.
