Seven Telltale Signs You Need Housekeeping this Fall

Posted on

You’re busy. With the holidays mere weeks away, you’re even busier. You can definitely do it all. There is no doubt about it. But, you shouldn’t have to sacrifice sleep, family time or more importantly, your sanity to keep up with household chores. There is a season for everything, and sometimes it’s the season for hiring a cleaning service.  When the time is right to reach out for additional helping hands, the signs you need housekeeping will be clear.

1. Everyone is coming home for the holidays.

As the holidays roll in, so does the extended family. At first, it might just be the kids home from the fall semester, but before you know it, aunts, uncles, cousins and grandparents will be spilling out of spare bedrooms, sleeping on sofas and spending days in your home.

It’s an exciting time full of laughter and lots of food. If you are struggling to keep up with the extra chores bought one before, during and after these guests arrive, then stop, take a breath and call 2 Green Chicks to help.


2. There is a new addition to the family.

Newborn babies are precious and beautiful. Except when you are awake all night taking care of them, and you haven’t slept more than a few hours at a time in the last five weeks. The little boy or girl will have all of your attention and energy, and that’s a good thing. That is  until you realize you no longer have any clean clothes, clean dishes and an overflowing bin of trash.

Rather than try to balance all the responsibility of being a new parent and still managing to keep your home in working order, call a cleaning service to lend a hand during this exciting season of life.


3. You enjoy entertaining.

Do you love to cook but hate to clean? We get it. Decorating plates of food is better than scrubbing a stove.  Don’t worry, at 2 Green Chicks cleaning is our talent and passion. So, you do what you do best, and we will do what we do best. Sometimes, with a little delegation, you can spend your time and effort doing what matters most.


4. Wanderlust is consuming you.

Once you’re bitten by the travel bug, it is hard to suppress the need for adventure. The best thing about a long trip is coming back home to a clean and tidy space. If it’s messy, then stress will wash over you the moment you step through the front door.

Preparing for a trip is exciting. It’s hard to work in the house cleaning while you’re are searching for recommendations on TripAdvisor.

Hiring a cleaning service before you leave on your grand adventure can give you peace of mind that you took care of all your chores before hitting the road.


5. Your career is blooming.

Promotions are worth celebrating by hiring a cleaning service. As you climb the corporate ladder to coveted levels of influence, the work may become more demanding of your time and energy. Don’t fret over dirty dishes, dusty furniture or crumbs in the carpet. Instead, call a cleaning service so you can continue your climb to the top without any unnecessary distractions.


6. Simple: You hate the work.

Sometimes the sign it’s time to hire a cleaning service is simply you hate cleaning. It’s okay.  

Cleaning is a chore.  You have to drag out all of the supplies, put on the gloves, grab the vacuum and try and find one last scrubbing sponge (there has to be on somewhere). If you don’t like something, you shouldn’t force yourself to do it if you don’t have to. That’s why cleaning services are all the rage.


7. Treat. Yo. Self.

Parks and Rec teaches a valuable lesson. Sometimes, you just have to “Treat. Yo. Self.”  Always wanted a cleaning service to help around the house? Then, do it! The best part about cleaning services is they are affordable for almost any budget. You can customize your cleaning schedule for a day, a few days, once a week or maybe only a couple of times a month.

You work hard. You deserve a day off.  Haven’t cleaned in a while? You deserve a few days off!
