Overcoming The Challenges Of House Cleaning

A gray logo of the word " finance ".

According to a study, Americans spend approximately six hours each week cleaning homes but still not sure if it’s enough. If you’re wondering why, well, for starters, our lives are hectic and can be stressful. And the last thing we’d want to do after a long day from work is to clean our homes. We’d rather rest instead.

Which is more important?

Actually, it’s not wrong if you prioritize resting first for health reasons. However, as we’re setting aside our house chores, dust and dirt start to accumulate. So, before we know it, there’s already a lot to take care of on the weekend or during your day off from work.

How to aid this situation?

Resting after a long day of work is important. That’s not a question. But cleanliness is also important! If we deprive ourselves of any of these two, our health is the one who would suffer the consequences. After all, our health is the most important on top of the list, isn’t it?

So, in this case, the best option for us to attend to this situation is to take care of cleaning our house on our behalf. But before we start scratching our heads and computing the expenses on our minds, we should consider the bigger picture. Having your house cleaned regularly has a variety of benefits. You can read our previous blog post about The Benefits of Home Cleaning for starters.

I want to clean the house but I am busy/want to rest

True to its words, life is an adventure. It is! And we all are busy doing our own thing whether personal or business that should be taken care of. It’s not wrong as having a busy life (although can be stressful at times) means you have a purpose to go on. On the other hand, house chores should not and cannot be neglected.

If you’re someone who really cannot have the time to squeeze in doing house chores like cleaning it, it’s not a problem.

The benefits of hiring a professional house cleaner

Nowadays, there are options you can consider to still do your work while someone cleans the house for you. We’ve previously discussed the 5 Benefits of Outsourcing Cleaning Services. The idea of the previous blog we have mainly talks about or focused on business establishment, but its benefits are actually still applicable for you when you hire a professional house cleaner for your home.

Cost and Time Efficient

Professional house cleaning is cheaper than you might think. With the pandemic situation, we are in now, hiring a professional to clean your house ensures you that it is more than just cleaning on what you are paying for. Cleaning is accompanied with disinfection to ensure that your place is safe and free from viruses, germs, and bacteria.

Also, believe it or not, even if you add a monthly house cleaning on top of a weekly or bi-weekly house cleaning is still cheaper than hiring a full-time employee for the same job.


You’re given the opportunity to focus more on your other things to do as the cleaners you hire are available according to the appointment you set for them to go to your house to clean. Also, as they are professionally trained, they focus on deep and sustainable cleanings which make the weekly or bi-weekly cleaning schedules be done faster and smoothly.

It can fit your budget

The cleaners can customize the house cleaning job for you according to what’s needed. You can discuss with them your concerns if you’re on a tight budget so you will meet halfway and come to a decision or agreement without sacrificing the quality of cleaning service they offer.

Safe and Eco-friendly

A clean environment thoroughly helps reduce someone’s stress level. It’s a fact. We cannot argue that your surroundings contribute to your current mood which is why having a clean space is important. 

While the professional cleaners clean your house, you can sit back and relax. You have less worry about the outcome of their work as they are professionally trained to clean consistently, thoroughly, and effectively.

Enhances Your Image

Your home is a mirror to how you live your life. And having a clean home means that you’re in a state where you have fewer worries to think of.

When you hire cleaners to clean your house, you have the consistency of enjoying clean and comfortable surroundings without lifting a finger.

Should I go for a weekly or monthly cleaning service?

It can be a trick question. And the truth is both are equally and effectively important. If possible you should choose both. But we understand that there are factors you might want to consider.

The best way to approach this is to determine which you need first the most. Another option is for you to have your own checklist on the parts of your home that need immediate cleaning attention.

Why a Weekly House Cleaning is a Better Option

House cleaning is an essential part of our lives. It’s a fact! If you don’t maintain the cleanliness in your home, the dirt, germs, viruses, and bacteria are prone to attack not just your living space but also your immune system. Although we get that house cleaning can be challenging to squeeze into your busy schedule—work and personal time. Which is why it is ideal to hire a professional house cleaner to do the job. Imagine going to a clean home after a long day of work, isn’t it nice?

But did you know that hiring a cleaner to keep your house clean is only one of the important steps to consider to maintain the cleanliness of your own space? There are a lot to consider, in reality. But it doesn’t mean you have to stress yourself about it. Just look at the bigger picture instead. It’s best to ensure that cleanliness would be thoroughly implemented for your own good.

With this being said, it is best if you have a checklist to ensure a successful house cleaning. On the other hand, there’s one more thing we’d like for you to consider to it. It is a good idea to consider a weekly house cleaning schedule over monthly house cleaning.

Here are the 5 reasons that would benefit you from considering a weekly house cleaning.

  1. It keeps you on track and accountable

There’s a higher chance that, over time, having someone clean your house, you tend to get to relax with the idea. Sure, we trust the professional house cleaner to do the work thoroughly. And they do the cleaning great more than the idea that they’re paid to do that. However, us being too relaxed sometimes leads us to miss the opportunity to double check how the cleaning was done.

So, having a weekly house cleaning schedule would give you the opportunity to track yourself (not only the cleaners) on observing how messy your house can be in a span of a week. Furthermore, it makes you accountable in the sense that you’re pushing yourself to be more organized with everything. You’ll be able to push yourself to be organized, learn to declutter, and be a tidy person. So, when the cleaner comes you’ll know if you will or you will not ask them to work additional hours and make a spring cleaning a deep cleaning.

  1. You have a weekly fresh start

Isn’t it great that despite your busy schedule, you’re still feeling motivated when your week starts? Having your house cleaned over the weekend could motivate you to start your week great knowing that everything is clean, organized and positively encouraging you to have a good week ahead.

It might sound more of an idea but this idea is enough to lighten up your mood, isn’t it? So imaging if it’s actually happening. It is scientifically proven that cleanliness positively affects you mentally, spiritually, and physically to work smoothly.

  1. It is better than monthly cleaning

Monthly cleaning is not bad. It is not! But it is more ideal to add it on top of weekly cleaning when it needs to. The idea is simple, are you comfortable to live in a place where dust and dirt keeps on accumulating and just ignoring it? It’s not ideal, especially in times like this. Weekly house cleaning is beneficial to ensure that your house is clean and well maintained. On the other hand, monthly cleaning is ideal for instances like deep cleaning where the cleaner will focus more on areas that need thorough attention.

Besides, weekly cleaning is a better bargain. Monthly cleaning, on the other hand, is more expensive as you pay a higher cleaning fee, you pay additional hours since the dirt and dust accumulated are harder to wipe off.

  1. It can ease allergy symptoms

Allergies are not only seasonal. It can hit you anytime. And if you’re thinking that everything is good since you don’t have one so weekly cleaning should be set aside. Well, think again. Allergies can develop in you (like dust allergy) before you know it if you continue depriving cleanliness to yourself and to your house.

So before it is too late, always maintain cleanliness.

  1. A proven method of self-care

Availing a weekly house cleaning service is a good opportunity to keep yourself away from additional stress. It’s true that there can be stress everywhere and on almost everything. But you don’t have to add more to it just because you have no time to clean weekly. Hiring a professional house cleaner or cleaning company like My Marvelous Maids is a good option.

The cleaner will do the work on your behalf and ensure that your house is sparkling clean. Weekly or bi-weekly house cleaning would give you more time for yourself to relax your mind from work and other stuff. Also, it can give you balance as you will have time to spend with your family.
