7 Benefits of Professional Home Cleanings

Honestly, we run into a lot of people who feel like they need a reason to get their home professionally cleaned. They feel guilty or embarrassed not doing it themselves.

The reality is, everyone deserves a clean home. But if “treat yourself, you deserve it” isn’t reason enough, here are seven other benefits to scheduling a professional home cleaner.

 1. Support local, hard-working employees.

When you hire the right cleaning company, you don’t have to feel guilty about handing over your “dirty work.”

With Well-Paid Maids, the only living-wage cleaning company in D.C., we pay our employees at least $22 an hour. We also provide them benefits, like 24 paid days off per year, insurance, paid commuting costs and more.

 2. Reclaim your time.

Think about how much time you spend cleaning. Even if it’s not a regular hours-long deep clean, you still likely sink hours into picking up around the house, wiping down the kitchen, vacuuming and dusting.

 3. Get a deeper clean.

Let’s be real: When’s the last time you really scrubbed your shower? Dusted the baseboards? Cleaned the crusty grime off your stovetop? When you hire a professional cleaner, they take care of every nook and cranny (some you might not even think about!).

 4. Breathe easier — literally.

Dust. Dirt. Pollen. Pet dander. These allergens can run amuck in your home. Improve your indoor air quality with professional home cleanings. Vacuuming, dusting and mopping regularly can help keep your sniffles and sneezing to a minimum.

 5. Go green.

Some cleaning products can be harmful to the environment — and to you and your family.

When you hire Well-Paid Maids, you can feel good knowing they only use cleaning products rated “low concern” and “lowest concern” for health and sustainability by the Environmental Working Group.

 6. Boost your confidence.

Plain and simple: You’ll feel better walking into a clean home. Plus, if you plan to host friends or family, you can feel confident inviting them over — not worried they’re going to spot a mountain of dust.

 7. Stress less.

When your home is a hot mess, it can be difficult to focus — especially if you work from home. Let Well-Paid Maids help you reclaim your focus and decrease your stress by giving you a sparkling clean home.

So go ahead and book your home cleaning around your schedule and customize it to your needs.

We’re about a month out from summer. That means you’ve still got time for spring cleaning!

Lexi Grant, an operations manager at Well-Paid Maids, shared her go-to spring cleaning tips with WTOP News. Step one? Declutter. Get rid of items you don’t use, find space for items that need a home and organize those areas.

Then, it’s time to dust. Lexi starts with high-touch surface areas (think: refrigerator, dishwasher, counters, microwave). One area she sees often neglected is the bedroom — and it makes sense. Heavy furniture is difficult to move around, but it’s important to really get in there so dust doesn’t affect your sleep.
