Living in a nice, tidy home is a daily joy that’s hard to match. The peace, the serenity, the calm state of mind that come with a well-kept space can have a truly positive impact on your life. That said, some people find it hard to tidy; some of us our just slobs, and that’s okay, so long as someone cleans our space. Here are four signs that you might just need some outside help.
- You Just Can’t Get Rid of that Funky Smell
You’ve cleaned out the fridge, tossing out that several week old chicken you were planning to barbecue. You’ve managed to scrape off the goodness-knows-what off your kitchen floor, and you took out the pile of garbage that’s been sitting there for who-knows how long. You’ve taken a carpet cleaner to your carpet, scrubbed the bathtubs and dumped more toilet cleaner in the bowl than you knew was possible, and STILL that ripe smell is keeping your friends, family and potential lovers at bay. Time to hire a cleaner.
- You Can’t Remember the Colour of Your Floor
Amidst the clutter, you think you see carpet? Over in another spot, you see hardwood though; or at least you think you do. Maybe the carpet you saw was actually just really dusty hardwood? You manage to clean a spot on the ground to find out, but that area is a different colour than the other two bits of floor you’ve managed to spot, and it’s…a different texture, too? You wonder if you’ve ever had solid flooring, if it’s always been a patchwork of different flooring types, and whether or not the mess on the ground was there when you moved in. Time to hire a cleaner.
- Your Friends Bet on How Long it will Take You to Find Things
Some of your best pals manage to tolerate walking into your home, though they might be well prepared with face masks and car fresheners in hand. When they do, it’s time to party; if you can find the remote for your TV! Johnny bets it’ll take you about an hour, and Erika laughs and puts twenty dollars on it being longer than that. Time to hire a cleaner.
- You’re Tired, Your House is Messy, and You’re Feeling Sick
Jokes aside, you can tell you need a cleaning service long before it gets as bad as above. An unclean house can leave you feeling drained by the very prospect of cleaning it. Dust, allergens and bacteria on surfaces around your home can make you sick. When you feel you really don’t have the energy to tackle the important task of cleaning your home, it’s time to hire a cleaner. Experienced cleaning services professionals can take the task into their hands, and make sure you have a space that has you feeling happy and healthy long before you don’t know your own floor.
