Does it make sense to hire a cleaner

October 26, 2016 1 comments

Is Hiring a cleaner worth it? (alterations 10028)

 

 If you've ever wondered if you should hire a cleaning service, the answer is almost a no-brainer. Of course you should. Who wouldn't want to have someone come in and clean their house or apartment?

But cleaning services aren't cheap. Angie's List members pay between $120 to $150 for biweekly house cleanings, according to company data. The average cost, per HomeAdvisor.com, is $151. RedBeacon.com, another site that helps people find home-improvement professionals, puts the average cost at $121. Care.com suggests around $100 to $175 per cleaning. What you pay, of course, depends on how many rooms you're asking a cleaning service to tackle. (alterations 10028)

So, again, it's more than obvious that a cleaning crew would be nice to have, but should you get one? Is it worth the money? Here are some reasons to consider enlisting professional help to clean up your life. (alterations 10028)

It may reduce stress brought on by your family. Maybe your spouse is a neat freak, always complaining about your slovenly ways. Or maybe your in-laws often visit, and you think a cleaning service might curb the catty remarks. (alterations 10028)

Meghann Timmins, a 24-year-old public relations professional in Atlanta, hired a cleaning service for family-related reasons. (alterations 10028)

 

Six months ago, her parents were coming for a visit, and while she was happy to have them over, she began to fret; she'd been away for a weekend and had been busy with work. (alterations 10028)

"I desperately needed someone to come clean according to their impossible standards," says Timmins, who found a cheap but effective service through an app called Handy. (alterations 10028)

The cleaning crew charged $85 to clean her two-bedroom town house, and since Timmins and her roommate were splitting the cost, they decided it was definitely worth it to keep the cleaners coming every four weeks. (alterations 10028)

 

"They take the time to clean things that I don't have to touch and that my other roommate doesn't think about. It is absolutely worth the money and saves us so much time," Timmins says. (alterations 10028)

It may reduce self-induced stress. Maybe your family isn't giving you grief for your messy house. Maybe you're the one berating yourself. (alterations 10028)

Graeme Seabrook, a vacation rental manager in Charleston, South Carolina, says she hired a cleaning service after her second child, a daughter, was born. (alterations 10028)

"My time is worth more to me than the cost of the service. I also had dealt with postpartum depression and anxiety after my son was born, and we were looking for ways to make the transition to a family of four as smooth as possible," says Seabrook, who now blogs about maternal mental health. (alterations 10028)

For her, the $125 she spends every other week is worth it. "The time I spent cleaning, feeling guilty about not cleaning, worrying about how bad my house looked and stressing about how we would get it all done – I have all of that time back now," Seabrook says. (alterations 10028)

You hate cleaning. Few people would likely choose vacuuming over going to the beach, but some people claim to at least enjoy certain tasks like folding laundry while watching TV or vacuuming while daydreaming. But others can't fool themselves into thinking cleaning is anything but a grind. (alterations 10028)

Dana Todd, an executive in Chicago, seems to be somewhere in the middle of indifference and despising it. (alterations 10028)

"I hate housework," Todd says. "I don't mind keeping the house tidy, but for scrubbing and doing detail work, it would literally take me a full day because I'm inefficient at it." (alterations 10028)

You would lose money by cleaning. Todd has done the math, and she feels that she comes out ahead financially by paying for a house cleaner. (alterations 10028)

 

"Back when I was just starting out in the workforce, one of my female peers explained the concept of opportunity cost with respect to hiring a cleaner versus doing it myself. She asked me to do a simple calculation of how much time it would take me, and my hourly rate based on my salary versus the cost of hiring a professional," Todd says. (alterations 10028)

In other words, let's say you make $100 an hour. If it would take you five hours to clean your house, you are, in a sense, spending $500 when you clean your home. Instead, you could spend $150 for a two-person cleaning crew to do the same work, or even better work, in two hours. (alterations 10028)

But if you make $10 an hour, and it takes you five hours to clean your home, you are, in a sense, spending only $50 to clean your home for five hours, and you may decide spending $150 on a cleaning service simply isn't a good deal – even if  you're just as time-starved as the person making $100 an hour. (alterations 10028)

You aren't a complete slob. It sounds counterintuitive, but for a cleaning service to work well, and for you to get the most out of your money, you have to at least be making an effort to be clean. (alterations 10028)

Now, if you completely channel your inner Oscar Madison, you risk undermining the cleaning service you're paying. But many cleaning services ask clients to do some pre-cleaning before they get there. That may sound crazy, but it makes sense. If you leave a bunch of clutter on the floor, either your cleaning crew won't vacuum or mop your floor or they'll pick it all up, which takes time – time you're paying for. (alterations 10028)

Another way to look at it: If you're spending $150 to have several rooms, or all of the rooms, in your house scrubbed, dusted and vacuumed, you probably don't want, say, a third of the time being spent on your dirty dishes. (alterations 10028)

 

Of course, you can undermine your cleaning service in other ways that make it less cost-effective. Amy Bates, who owns a Merry Maids franchise in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and writes a cleaning blog, DontLookUnderTheRug.com, has seen her share of rookie mistakes. (alterations 10028)

For instance, if you have an aggressive pet who likes to chase the cleaning crew around, consider having the crew come on grooming day, Bates suggests. (alterations 10028)

And you certainly want to tell your cleaning service what your priorities are or any pet peeves you have. "If you never want water on your wood floors, you should communicate that," Bates says. (alterations 10028)

It's also smart to really think about what day is best for your cleaning service to come over. (alterations 10028)

"A lot of people like cleaning services to come on Fridays, but for me, I like Mondays," Bates says. "There are a million children at my home every weekend, and if I can start the week with a clean house, that's a game-changer. But if I have someone come on a Friday, and the kids make it a mess over the weekend, by Monday, I might feel that's a waste of money." (alterations 10028)

And how you feel about the money is really the best way to tell if the cleaning service was worth it, just about anyone who has ever used a cleaning service will tell you. If within hours or days, you regret spending the money (and especially if that's how you feel after the second and third time), a cleaning service isn't for you. But it's probably money well spent if not only your house is clear of cobwebs, but your mind is, too. (alterations 10028)
