Why Your Friends and Neighbors Use Professional Housecleaning

Your Lawrence neighbors and friends may be benefiting from the use of professional cleaners like Buckingham Palace. Have you asked? You will find there are many reasons for this - some obvious, some not as obvious.

Your Time is Both Valuable and Limited

Professional housecleaning supports you in chores that are often a drain on family and personal time. Who does the lion's share of the work now in your home? We have found that most of the cleaning is done by adults who are also employed in outside-the-home jobs. This means that keeping a cleaner, healthier and more enjoyable home takes time from family activities and personal regeneration or self-improvement. Many families report to us they cannot achieve the level of cleanliness they would prefer with the time they have available. Families who do entertaining regularly sometimes feel as if they are exhausted trying to prepare their home to receive guests, which in turn affects the enjoyment they get from entertaining.

What is Most Important to You?

In your hours after work and at home, what is most important to you? The most common answer we hear is "our children and their activities." Other valued time uses include exercise, friends, entertainment (including dining out), hobbies and community involvement. Yet the time to do each of these important activities is limited. Cleaning your home is an on-going process that requires your time and energy - sometimes in large quantities. Yet other than a little exercise, it seldom provides much in the way of family togetherness, self-improvement or enjoying life.

Professional Housecleaning Helps Provide an Advantage for Your Entire Family

Lawrence, Eudora and Baldwin City residents have looked to companies such as Buckingham Palace Housecleaning for many years. Why? Because our trained, insured and bonded cleaners outperform other options and free your family from the more time-consuming aspects of keeping a sterling-clean home. The trustworthiness, consistency, speed and quality that a professional company like Buckingham Palace can provide gives you peace of mind.

What Level of Help is Appropriate?

The answer varies based on your needs, of course. 70.35% of home owners taking advantage of professional assistance reported housecleaning visits scheduled on a bi-weekly frequency, according to an industry fact-gathering group. Weekly and monthly frequencies came in at a little over 12% each with one-time cleaning bringing up the rear at under 6%. So the vast majority of homes taking advantage of assistance are cleaned by professionals on an every-other-week basis.

What Should You Do Before and While Selecting a Housecleaning Service?

First, sit down with your family and develop a list of your goals and what is most important to you. Think through the things you would like to do with your time rather than cleaning. List the interim cleaning chores you and family members are willing to perform to help you determine what frequency is right for you. If you have time, think through the special challenges you would like to communicate, such as pets, stains, odors that recur, bathroom issues, artwork cleaning and work that requires reaching high areas. What are your concerns and desires regarding the ecological aspects of cleaning? What are the times your home is best cleaned? A little preparation can go a long way in expressing your particular needs.
