25 Apr Why Hire House Cleaning Services
Picture this: you’re on your way home from work. You had meeting after meeting and ended up staying late. Your commute home was painfully slow and you just want to get home, lay down on the couch, and watch Netflix. But instead, you open the door to your apartment and are greeted by a mess. There’s clutter everywhere and you haven’t cleaned it properly in a while. You’re normally not this messy, but you’ve been working long hours. What’s worse- your family texts you to let you know they’re coming in for a surprise visit this weekend! When will you find time to clean?
Hiring house cleaning services seems like an added expense, but the benefits far outweigh the cost. If you find yourself tired at the end of the day, the last thing you want is to come home to a messy house. With a cleaner, you can breathe a sigh of relief knowing that this part of your life is handled.
The first question you need to ask yourself is whether you want to hire someone from a cleaning company or an independent cleaner. Both have their perks, but it’s up to your situation.
Searching through cleaning companies, you may find that they don’t exactly fit your needs, and the price can be quite high. However, they offer security and reliability, which you may not always find when hiring an independent cleaner.
But Skep Home combines the trust and structure of a cleaning company with the flexibility of an independent cleaner. The Skep Home app connects homeowners with independent cleaners, making it easier to find local cleaners in different neighbourhoods. Skep Home is the only service that offers instant cleans, where a cleaner can be at your home in 60 minutes or less.
Below we’ve listed the top reasons to hire house cleaning services, and how Skep Home includes all the perks you need.
Why Hire House Cleaning Services?
Gives you peace of mind
The decision of who to hire as a house cleaner shouldn’t be taken lightly. This person is entering your home, so you not only need to think about hiring someone who is fast and efficient, but also someone who can be trusted with your valuables and with delivering a professional service.
Skep Home provides the middle ground of hiring independent cleaners but also setting certain practices in place so that only reliable and trustworthy cleaners are on the app at all times. All cleaners on the app must undergo a background check and keep their ratings from homeowners above a 4.3, or they will be banned from the app. We also have a satisfaction guarantee or your money back, so you know how dedicated we are to the job.
If you work full time, you probably don’t have the energy to come home and clean. On the other hand, a cleaner will have the time to go over tough spots and to clean areas you hardly think about. With a cleaner, all you need to do is sit back as they help keep your house in order.
If your in-laws visit, even if they drop by unexpectedly, you’ll be prepared with a cleaning service. You can use Skep Home’s instant cleaning option to have a cleaner there stat or schedule ahead. You’ll be busy running around trying to secure all the other supplies and extra food, so leave the cleaning to us.
Ultimately you’ll have to decide what is worth more to you: your time or the cost of the service. Spend less time cleaning and more time with loved ones. Or you can spend it on activities that rejuvenate you such as yoga or going to an art class. You’ll come home to a clean space and your head will feel clearer too.
Reduces fatigue and stress
If you can think of a million other tasks around the home you would rather accomplish than cleaning, hiring a housekeeper can reduce your stress levels. Overexerting yourself when you’re tired can also have a serious impact on your health and lead to fatigue.
In addition, cleaning may not be as simple as you would think. There are several tips and tricks that can save you time and energy, but if you’re not regularly cleaning in the first place, you’ll have a hard time implementing them. A professional cleaner has the experience and the best methods for cleaning your home and can do so in less time than if you were to clean yourself.
Skep Home’s cleaners have the option of becoming a Super Cleaner, meaning they have performed a certain number of cleanings each month and consistently earn high ratings from homeowners. If you see a Super Cleaner symbol beside their name, you’ll know these cleaners have the experience and skills necessary to do outstanding work.
When you hire a cleaner to help you out around the house you’ll find that you have more downtime and are able to relax and bond with your loved ones. You’re now freeing up some time you would otherwise spend on a gruelling task, so you can use your time however you see fit.
Keeps your allergies away
A common allergen affecting both adults and children is dust. Dust is a big problem that causes itchy eyes and a runny nose but can be prevented with regular cleaning.
We understand that sometimes your schedule gets insanely hectic, and carving out an hour or two from your day just seems impossible. A cleaner who comes in bi-weekly or even monthly can help keep your home clean at all times.
Professional cleaners will give your home a thorough cleaning that makes it shine. They have the experience that can get your home in top shape in no time. Cleaners know how to work quickly and efficiently so that the service you paid for is worthwhile.
For special occasions or a few times a month
You don’t even necessarily need a cleaner to come daily or weekly. A few cleanings a month could be the thing to help you feel more organized.
Even for special occasions, such as hosting an event at your house, hiring a cleaner would eliminate the stress of having to prepare your home for guests. You have enough on your plate with food and decor, so leave the cleaning to someone else.
It’s a good idea to think of the best day to have a cleaning as well. With Skep Home you can schedule a cleaning right away or schedule bi-weekly or monthly appointments. We work to accommodate your schedule by connecting homeowners with cleaners in their area. Less hassle for you, and the cleaner too.
Skep Home sends out a call to cleaners in your area so they are readily available to provide you with services quickly. Our app also has a built-in feature to not schedule cleaners to appointments on opposite ends of the city, so your cleaner won’t be late or stuck in traffic. Homeowners can track their cleaner’s GPS location on the app so you know exactly when they’ll be arriving.
Getting support from your cleaner
With a regular cleaning company, you can call customer support and have them send you another cleaner if yours doesn’t show up or is sick, tell them that the cleaner missed some spots, or give them some feedback that they can pass onto the cleaner.
But what if the lines are busy, or you need to speak to someone outside typical work hours? The Skep Home app handles all of your needs and questions at all times. You can either message the cleaner directly or leave a review.
The Skep Home app has the option for homeowners to select Favourite cleaners. When a cleaner completes a service, you can Favourite them so their profile will show up on the app the next time you book a cleaning. If they are available you can book them again, but if not you can choose from the last five cleaners who cleaned your home. This way, you’ll see a familiar face and know who will be cleaning your home that day.
If your cleaner cannot make the scheduled appointment, another cleaner will automatically be found. If you scheduled a cleaning with one of your Favourite cleaners, you can accept the new cleaner or reschedule with your Favourite cleaner another time. Since this process is on the app, you’ll be able to see the photo and profile of the new cleaner who will be on their way, so you’re not left wondering who’s coming to your home.
The bottom line with hiring a cleaning service is to relieve stress for yourself. Free up your time and spend it doing more of what you love, rather than worrying about regularly maintaining your home. Cleaning companies and independent cleaners each have their benefits, all of which can be found in the Skep Home app.
If you’re thinking about hiring a cleaner, get the best of both worlds with Skep Home. You’ll feel safe knowing more about who is coming to your home, while also getting professional and reliable cleaners in your area, creating a hassle-free solution for both parties.
