Need help tidying up? Call in a cleaning service.
What is the benefit of a home cleaning service ? Well, one of the biggest sources of strife in a family with teenagers is chores. Cleaning is especially bothersome, with seemingly few teens able to match parents’ expectations about how clean something has to be to be really “clean.” Its just not something most teens are good at for some reason.
So, what are you supposed to do. Just keep getting yelled at?
This is where a home cleaning service can help. These range from a single person who cleans houses on the side to full blown, professional operations with dozens of employees. An example is Live Clean Today, a company which serves the greater Spokane, Washington area.
Live Clean Today can be booked via their contact form or a phone call. You have to indicate how many rooms and the approximate square footage, and they will return a quote. There may be extra charges when they arrive, however, if the space is dirtier than anticipated or special techniques are required (for example, removing wine stains from a carpet–which can take several hours and special chemicals).
Here are some of the benefits of a home cleaning service:
- They do the work for you (sweet!)
- They bring their own supplies. Companies like Live Clean Today use natural cleaners to reduce toxic buildup in the home.
- Most companies are licensed, bonded, and insured in the event they damage anything in your home.
- Flexible solutions. You can hire them for for regular light housekeeping or a one-time deep cleaning.
The main negative would be cost. Expect to pay $100 and up for most services, although sometimes you can get a deal through a coupon or sale. For a teen, this might be way too expensive, so consider offering to help pay for part of the service with your other siblings and parents covering the rest.
Its worth it to live in a clean, harmonious home.
