While hiring cleaning services can seem expensive, a deep dive will show how the alternative to hiring cleaning services may be similarly costly. While this preview is not comprehensive, it will hit some major factors to consider when comparing the cost of cleaning services compared to the cost of cleaning your own home.
Time is money, and your own time is incredibly valuable. When you clean your house, you are spending your own time, which is worth a lot. When you hire cleaning services they are being paid a rate, but when you compare that rate to your own times worth it may be comparable. Also, when you consider how they can clean much faster, the hourly cost of cleaning services may be comparable to the amount of time you spend yourself.
Another thing to consider is cleaning materials. While cleaning supplies are not terribly expensive, they are an expense nonetheless. Most hired cleaning services will provide their own cleaning materials and equipment, which will most likely be of higher caliber than the equipment you own. This leads to more efficient cleaning, as well as less money put into your cleaning supplies budget.
Stress cannot be quantified exactly, but the emotional cost attached to having to constantly keep up on cleanliness can be high. Hiring cleaning services will lead to less stress and a cleaner home, because you will not have to worry so much about every nook and cranny being spotless.
While cleaning services can be well worth their cost, that doesn’t mean cleaning needs to be cut from your life. Regularly cleaning you home is still necessary, and cleaning services can supplement and spot-check your home as you keep up with your own cleaning. Whether you frequent or infrequent cleaning services, they are a great way to keep your home orderly and are easily worth the cost.
