Cleaning Burnout: What Comes Up Short You When You Do It All Yourself
Most well-meaning homeowners strive to do a lot of “home stuff” on their own – you know, things that make a house a home such as decorating, repairing, remodeling and cleaning. Out of these, the last one – cleaning – should be done frequently. It’s also the one that can stress you out the most, but you’d still insist on doing it yourself, right? This is where the cracks on the wall start showing up, and this is why you might need a house cleaning service from professional cleaners on a fairly regular basis. You will know it is time to get a house cleaning service and call in professional cleaners when the following cleaner burnout symptoms start to appear:
1. Shoddy Cleaning Quality
Try as you might, there will be times when you come up short on the quality of your cleaning – especially when you have so much on your plate that also need attention. You may sweep the floor here and there, but when you are in a hurry or are too tired you probably miss out on out-of-sight nooks and crannies that also need attention – such as the space behind your bookshelf or that gap between the gas range and the refrigerator. If you get a house cleaning service, you’ll have a guarantee that professional cleaners will be able to get to those places you didn’t even remember existed.
2. Time to Do Personal or Important Stuff
Nobody likes spending a whole Saturday scrubbing down the house. When you’re too busy at work and too tired in the evening to get some major cleaning done, chances are you leave it to the weekend to tackle such tasks. This means pushing appointments and social activities to the side just so your home can remain clean. You’ll know when you’re slowly being sucked into the cleaning vortex when your calendar has nothing left on it in terms of meeting other people or attending events. By then, it’s probably time to give professional cleaners or a house cleaning service a ring.
3. Developing Allergies and Bad Skin
If you notice that you have perpetually watery eyes or feeling like your skin is overly stretched and painfully cracked, it can be because 1) you are constantly exposed to dust and mites (or have had prolonged exposure to both or other allergens) and 2) your skin is reacting badly due to contact with harsh cleaning agents. While it’s perfectly understandable to want a spiffy clean house, it shouldn’t be at the expense of your personal well-being. Thus, it is in your best interest to have your home duly scrubbed by professional cleaners from a house cleaning service.
While it’s definitely expected of any homeowner to keep a tidy home, red flags are raised when one or all three of these symptoms are present. As a homeowner and a hard working individual, you deserve to have both a spic and span home as well as the time and health to engage in enjoyable pursuits – which is where professional cleaners come in so they can rid you of your cleaner burnout!
