How To Best Utilize The Time Your House Cleaning Service Comes To Your House

Are you lucky enough to have a house cleaning service? Do you have a live in maid? Perhaps the maid or the service comes only periodically, maybe once a week or once every two weeks. No matter the situation for your house cleaning services, from planning the best day for the service to be done to preparing your house, here are some ways that you can best utilize the time your house cleaning service comes to your house.

The Best Days - Think about your family routines and select days around that. 

  • For example, if you love to entertain on the weekend, think about establishing Friday as the day the service comes to clean your house. That way your house will be clean for your guests and you can concentrate on simply enjoying your time together.
  • On the other hand, you might want the house cleaning service to come to your house on Monday so that weekend messes can be cleaned up.
  • Tuesdays might be a perfect day, too. That way you can use Mondays to do things like laundry and ironing.
  • Consider scheduling extra cleaning days before main events like Thanksgiving Day or New Year's Eve when you might be hosting special events.

A Great Preparation - The cleaning service can get a lot more accomplished if you do some preparing before the workers arrive.

  • For example, get everybody in your family to go through the house to put away all of their personal belongings. 
  • Decide ahead of time which area of focus you want the service to clean.
  • For instance, you may want the focus to be on cleaning baseboards and other wood work.
  • Think about rotating the focus of cleaning. For example, on one visit the cleaning service might concentrate on bathrooms while on another occasion the service might concentrate on cleaning the kitchen.

The great part about having a cleaning service is that you can focus on organizing your house while the service focuses on keeping your house spotless. The cleaning service will send individuals who are experienced and who know how to use state-of-the-art equipment to pay attention to detail. For example, the service will have equipment to clean hard-to-reach windows or to clean the grout between the tiles in your bathroom or on the floors of your house. If you won't be home when the cleaning service will be in your home, think about leaving a detailed list of jobs you want the service to accomplish.
