When you come home after a day of work, running errands, making dinner, and any other miscellaneous items you have on your agenda, is cleaning your entire house next on your agenda? Or are you possibly considering sacrificing one of your weekend days to ensure the house is clean? Homeowners will look around every now and then and question what their time of cleaning is worth, but more importantly how much is it worth to have extra free time by hiring a cleaning service? 

The professionals at Cris’s Cleaning Services, a small and locally owned business in the Phoenix area, come across this question a lot. So, we wanted to take some time to discuss what it’s like to hire a cleaning service versus doing it all on your own. 

DIY Cleaning Factors

Do-it-yourself cleaning is virtually inevitable to any homeowner or renter, especially for little tasks like wiping down surfaces after a messy meal or taking out the trash. But this doesn’t mean that you have to set aside the time and energy to take on some of these or larger tasks. Some people may enjoy cleaning, but the majority of homeowners and renters agree that cleaning is one of their least favorite home activities. 

So, before you clean your home by yourself, take a second to consider some of these cleaning factors: 

  • The time. When you start getting into the nitty-gritty of cleaning, a lot of other issues seem to pop up. When you wipe down kitchen surfaces, you notice your microwave or oven could be cleaned as well; when you organize your living room, you decide a vacuum or sweeping is in order; when you clean your bathroom sink, you notice a toilet could use a scrub as well, etc. The list seems to be never-ending. It can take a real commitment to get your house in order. 
  • Cost. When dealing with a cleaning service, people often gripe about the cost, claiming it isn’t worth it. This could be true, why pay someone what you could essentially do by yourself? But consider what your time is worth. If you have more free time to spend with your family, read a book, exercise, and more, isn’t that better than dealing with the impending task of cleaning your house? It’s said that a cleaner house makes you happier, and that is because of the psychological effect to cleanliness paired with the added time to do things you truly want to. 
  • Professional service. When you’re trying to tackle any germs or bacteria in your house, especially your bathroom, the knowledge behind the right chemicals, procedure, and schedule comes in handy. It is smart to trust professional cleaners to handle the bigger issues of your house, such as when you want to have a deep clean. (A professional will also save costs on not needing to purchase materials, like chemical cleaners, sponges, rags, etc. since you aren’t buying them yourself.)
