Home Cleaning Pros: Worth the Investment

So you’re thinking that paying somebody to clean your house is something you wouldn’t want your mother to know. She would scrimp and save as the mistress of her domain, a.k.a. her home and her family. Never pay for something you can do yourself, she would say, and here you are thinking about hiring a cleaning service.

On the other hand, times have changed and you have a busy life, working a job with a commute that keeps you away from home and family for 10 hours Monday through Friday. Your spouse is stuck pretty much in the same grind, and you take turns picking up the kids from day care. And then you work part time from home as a web designer for small businesses — something you hope to turn into your own full-time business some day —so you’re hustling and working hard to make an impression on your handful of clients. That’s a drain on your weekends.

Your mother was always home to watch you and your siblings, and it’s really not fair to compare. As we see it, Mom would be proud, because making the decision to hire a prestigious house cleaning service for a few hours a week will make you a better parent, partner and provider.


There are good reasons why American families turn to house cleaning services, as they do to professional day care providers. It is increasingly common for both parents in the household to work in some capacity— in fact, the percentage is climbing toward two-thirds of all couples with children, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. There are also a lot of single parents out there working to support one or more children.

So here are some of the reasons you’d give to Mom to convince her why you would hire a qualified and proven professional house cleaning service like Total Home Cleaning:

√ It’s a great investment of your time and family income and would actually make you a better parent and provider.

√ It gives you more quality time to spend with your family, rather than the hours of time keeping your home clean from top to bottom, including sweeping, mopping, vacuuming and deep cleaning from kitchen to bathrooms.

√ It enhances your mental health, reducing stress, knowing that everything will be taken care of by professionals who know what they are doing, scheduled so it doesn’t conflict with family time or work you are doing at home. It is also a relief to your home is clean and healthy, alleviating worries about unexpected visitors.

Sound financial management is important on the home front, too. Money well spent takes precedence over money not spent, and that’s why professional home cleaning is an option today with which your mother, even your grandmother, would agree.
