A family’s primary caregiver — typically Mom — fulfills multiple roles and duties. She cooks, cleans, and chauffeurs the kids. She does the laundry and the shopping, and she pays the bills. She may hold a job and/or volunteer in the community.
So when Mom gets sick or injured, she needs help … lots of it.
Often Dad will take over, with help. Family members, friends and neighbors may pitch in to provide meals while Mom’s recovering. Perhaps someone will offer to take the kids where they need to go. Someone else may walk the dogs or throw a load of laundry in the washer when they come to visit.
But there aren’t a lot of cheerful volunteers offering to take care of the house cleaning. The hands-in-the-toilet, hands-and-knees floor scrubbing … the sanitizing kind of clean that is so necessary during recovery from an illness or injury.
A solution that works for many families is hiring a professional house cleaning company to handle those chores …
By hiring professional house cleaners, Mom avoids any potential embarrassment of having friends or neighbors see the family’s “dirt.” She can relax in knowing that this is a just a job to the professional … and there’s no judgment on how dirty a house is except as to how it relates to the time it will take to complete the job.
By hiring professional house cleaners, Mom also knows that the cleaning is going to be done right. The professionals will use the proper cleaners, chemicals and equipment … they’ll even bring their own supplies! And they do this every day for a living, so they know what they’re doing.
By hiring professional house cleaners, Mom can relax and actually heal from her injury or illness. She will be less tempted to help do the chores herself.
To give Mom the most peace of mind, be sure to hire a house cleaning company that:
• is fully insured (both liability and workers’ comp),
• can provide references,
• gives an onsite personalized quote for the exact services you need, and
• has policies and procedures in place to guarantee your satisfaction.
Until next time … Keep it clean!
