There are as many reasons for needing to hire a professional assistance as there are cleaners themselves. Some people are too busy with childcare, work or personal affairs to clean their properties, others may be away for a while leaving them vacant or perhaps the owner is incapacitated in some way and needs assistance with some of the more trying parts of maintaining sanitary conditions in their residence. Whether a full time cleaner or a part-time dish washer, every job opportunity is a boon to the worker as much as the employer; it is just helping the world turn.
First of all you need to ask yourself what level of cleaning do I need and/or can afford. Is a person who drops by once a week enough, or do you require daily scheduled or full time cleaners? Do you need a live-in maid or simply someone to do the housework occasionally?
A regular garden maintenance is a fairly standard practice, particularly for those who cannot spare the time or effort. It is a great way to improve the aesthetics of a property or place of business.
Do not underestimate the effect on image a hedge or a beautiful garden can have in terms of atmosphere.
There is of course too much of a good thing; having carpets sterilised and steam cleaned every few days is over-kill, unless there is a herd of children pouring through in bare feet. However if this is your choice I doubt anyone will mind cleaning the same place far more often than normal. If it gives the owner peace of mind, who is going to judge?
Having windows washed and make the gutters cleared is common practice. There are any number of cleaning businesses available that offer this service. Pet grooming is also available as a regular pick up and delivery service or even an as-you-wait from a parked van. Some even offer a kennel service also, in the event you won’t be home to feed your precious pet due to other responsibilities.
Having a regular car detailing and wash is a popular option for car enthusiasts or people who have an expensive vehicle that occasionally travels into some less urban environments. The owner of a four-wheel drive who likes to go into the bush on dirt roads or has to deal with dirty boots.
Something as simple as hiring a few men to haul away a pile of detritus or over-sized garbage is perhaps among the most common forms of cleaning. It is all simply a matter of taste and the level of dedication you have towards the cleanliness of your home. What you spend and what amount of effort you require is all that matters. People judge their neighbours by the attractiveness of their homes and shine on their vehicle as much as their personality. More as it may be the first impression they have of you.
