Five reasons to hire a home cleaning service

Despite the multitude of technology and amazing advancements we now have at our fingertips, modern life can feel pretty hectic at the best of times. As a society, we’re working longer hours than ever before, yet we’re still trying to cram in active social lives, time with our children, regular trips to the gym, an hour or two for our favourite TV shows… and that’s before you even factor in the multitude of household chores!

Luckily, there’s a solution. Hiring a professional cleaning service can take the pressure off and give you more time to pursue the things that really matter. If you’ve ever considered hiring your very own cleaner before, here’s why you should take the plunge. You’ll never look back!

Having a clean home makes you happier

It’s not pseudo-science – it’s fact! Mess causes stress, and coming home to an unorganised, unclean house can have an impact on your overall wellbeing. Hiring a domestic cleaner can help you enjoy your time at home more, because you’re not concentrating on dishes to be washed or laundry to be put away.

They’re professionals

Let’s face it, some people simply aren’t that great at cleaning. Some people thrive off it, scrubbing away every last speck of dust and organizing their homes with precision and accuracy – but the vast majority of people simply can’t get out stains or keep counters sparkling 100% of the time. That’s why you should bring in a professional. A truly professional cleaner will have your home looking flawless in a way that you would struggle to achieve, try as you might!

It frees up your own precious time

Time is certainly precious nowadays, and having a cleaner to take care of your chores at home frees up plenty of hours in the day. You can pursue a hobby, get fit, spend more time with loved ones, or simply relax and enjoy some ‘me-time’, rather than worrying about stacks of ironing or mopping floors.

Fewer arguments!

Countless studies have shown that domestic duties are one of the biggest causes of friction between couples, both married and non-married. That also stretches to children – asking them to tidy their rooms or wash up their dishes can result in teen tantrums every day. By delegating these chores to a professional, it removes this constant source of tension in the house and can contribute towards a much happier home in general.

A clean home is a happy home

They’ll complete tasks you never considered

As you’ve settled into your home, it’s likely you’ve developed some kind of house cleaning routine, covering all of the basics: vacuuming, washing the dishes, cleaning the counters, doing the laundry, etc. But fresh eyes could identify a multitude of others tasks that you might have been missing out on. Cleaning the dishwasher, washing the windows, freshening up your mattress, ironing your curtains… these are all tasks that a cleaner can perform which you might not even have considered.

Benefits of Hiring a Professional Cleaner for New Parents

Ask any new parent to describe their first experiences of parenthood, and the same phrases will crop up over and over again: it’s a ‘whirlwind’, or it’s turned their world ‘upside-down’. The amazing experience of becoming a parent for the first time is not one that can be forgotten – even through the sleep-deprivation.

For many new parents, those first months are a struggle. Every nap, sneeze, feed, playtime and nappy change has to be supervised, all while juggling other responsibilities, including housework and socialising.

Perhaps this is why many new parents are turning to professional cleaners to help them through the first obstacles and challenges of motherhood and fatherhood. Here’s why you should consider hiring a cleaner as a new parent:

More time with baby

One of the key benefits of bringing in someone to complete chores like cleaning and laundry is that you’ll have more time to spend with your bundle of joy. This is key for both parents, but especially those who may have to return to work soon after the birth of their child. It gives them important quality time to bond with their little one uninterrupted.

Helps keep the home clean and hygienic

Professional cleaners are incredibly skilled at ensuring areas are spotlessly clean and very hygienic – which is essential when there’s a new baby around. Being able to call on someone who can transform their home into a baby-safe haven is a real boost for parents everywhere.

You can welcome guests

Any new parent will tell you that you’ll never welcome more houseguests than in the period immediately after your little one is born. Everyone from distant relatives to old friends will want to see how the new arrival is doing – some may even arrive unannounced. Having a professional cleaner ensures your home is always fit to receive guests.

Easier to fall into a routine

When parents don’t have to concentrate on washing the dishes or mopping the floors, they can focus on building a routine with their baby. This can be incredibly tough, especially if the baby stirs numerous times during the night, but without the constant demand of dirty dishes or laundry, it can be much easier to find that natural schedule and rhythm that new babies and families need.

They dovetail perfectly with nannying services

If you’re already considering hiring a nanny, a professional cleaner is a perfect complement to that service. While your nanny helps with things like getting baby down for a nap, the cleaner can vacuum the entire property and ensure the place is spotless. These services are ideal when both parents need to return to work in some capacity – it helps new parents to resume their careers relatively quickly while still ensuring their little ones are cared for and their home is looked after.

If you’re considering hiring a professional cleaner to help after the birth of a new baby, contact Ready Maid Sydney to find out more about our rates and the services available.

This Is How Often You Should Be Cleaning Your House

This Is How Often You Should Be Cleaning Your House

When it comes to cleaning your home and the items in it, it can be difficult to know how often you should be cleaning each thing. For example, how long should you leave between washing your duvet and freshening up your mattress? Should you be cleaning your microwave on a weekly basis? How long is too long when it comes to cleaning your windows?

Luckily, the experts here at Ready Maid have come up with a simple schedule to help you stay on top of the seemingly never-ending list of tasks you need to complete to keep your home clean. And remember – if you need help with any of these jobs, or you want to free up some of your spare time, Ready Maid’s Sydney home cleaning service is just a few clicks away.

One week or less

Here are the domestic tasks that you should be completing on a weekly basis:

  • Vacuuming – your carpets collect so much dust and everyday debris, they really should be vacuumed each week.
  • Changing the bedsheets – your bedsheets collects a disgusting array of build-up throughout the week. Wash them at a high temperature once per week.
  • The kitchen – ideally you should be wiping down your kitchen counters every day, as well as washing any dishes that have accumulated. Appliances like microwaves should be wiped clean weekly and given a deep clean once every month or so.
  • Toilet – this place has a reputation as being the dirtiest place in the house, and deservedly so. Don some rubber gloves and give it a scrub once every week to keep it fresh and hygienic.

Two to four weeks

These are the cleaning jobs you should be carrying out every two to four weeks or so:

  • Cleaning your windows – this will ensure they remain smudge and smear-free, allowing them to let in as much natural light as possible.
  • Cleaning the shower and bath – this might be where you get clean each day, but the shower and bath area can accumulate an astonishing number of germs and bacteria. Clean the space with a dedicated bathroom cleaner every two weeks to kill germs and prevent mildew build-up.
  • Toys and toy chests – children are renowned for putting toys in their mouths, dipping them in food, rolling them around on the floor and continuing to play with them. Keep toys and their storage boxes clean by wiping them down with antibacterial wipes every two weeks.

Monthly or longer

Here are the tasks that you should complete once every month to keep your house clean:

  • Cleaning the fridge – you want the place where you store most of your food to be kept clean and hygienic! Once per month, clear out all of the food and clean the inside of the fridge – you can use natural substances like bicarbonate or soda, and half a lemon for a zesty fresh smell.
  • Upholstery – if you have sofas and armchairs, you should aim to have them professionally clean around twice per year. You should also put cushion covers through a hot wash around four times per year.
  • Duvets and blankets – as well as washing your exterior bedding regularly, you should make sure your duvets and blankets are cleaned at least twice per year.
