Living comfortably at home can become a challenge when health declines with age. Senior care facilities can be an option, but are often incredibly expensive with rates between $3,000 and $10,000 per month and restrict the freedom that seniors have in their own homes. But with a little help, living at home can be a lot easier. The house cleaning market has been growing exponentially over the past years. The reason for this growth can be brought down into two fundamental developments.
Research shows on the one hand an increasing number of women who work and on the other hand the ageing population. For seniors this is the time to delegate the cleaning tasks around the house to cleaning services, while they are affordable and widely available. Why spend the time and backbreaking effort to clean the house while a cleaning service could do this for as little as $15 per hour?
As mobility becomes more and more difficult, cleaning can become very stressful or even impossible. Avoid injuries or worse by hiring a professional house cleaning service! Professional house cleaning services bring trained and friendly employees that will relieve you from your cleaning tasks, resulting in a spotless house. While for the average person it would cost hours of precious time, it will cost these professionals just a few hours a week.
Services that these professionals could provide are:
- Extensive residential cleaning
- Sanitary cleaning
- Cleaning for specific special events
- Holiday cleaning
- Car cleaning
- Some will help with breakfast or lunch as an additional service
How to find the right house cleaning service?
You can easily find a house cleaning service online or at your local shopping mall. The internet provides countless options in house cleaning services, also in your neighbourhood. This way leaving the house to find a professional cleaner is not even necessary! Just make sure to contact a few of these professional cleaners to pick the one that is most affordable or makes you feel most comfortable. Most services offer an introductory cleaning to see if their service would be a good fit.
When speaking to different cleaning services that you find through an online search, just ask for quotes and find the best deal in your area. Take the time to find the right professional by asking multiple professionals to pitch why they are better than the competition. Both the pricing and the personal connection are very important. It goes without saying that a cheap but untrustworthy cleaning service is not worth anything! Our best advice is to conduct thorough research online and patiently choose the best service provider in terms of budget, quality and service. Make sure to ask multiple quotes by contacting multiple different companies.
