Are you someone who works a lot but dreads coming home to a messy house? Do you periodically waste your hard-earned money eating out because you can’t face your kitchen long enough to cook? If this is you, you’re not alone. Many people feel this way but think they can’t afford to hire a cleaning professional to help.
So the question remains…
Can I really afford to hire a cleaning professional?
Let’s get real here, sometimes cleaning your home is hard. So hard in fact that the only option you have left is to hire help. But can you really afford it? Would hiring help cost you more than you can chew?
The cost of a professional cleaner isn’t as expensive as you think. Especially when you step back and look at how the on-demand economy has revitalized the service industry. But if dollar equations don’t do it for you, taking the time to learn that your time is sometimes more valuable than money should.
Sometimes trading a few bucks for more time at work (with friends or family) could be just the thing you need. Hiring a professional house cleaner is more about prioritizing your busy on-demand life and less about the cost effects.

Things to consider
When it comes time to hire help for your house, consider asking yourself the following questions:
- Do I enjoy this task or is in fundamental to my household chores? If not you should consider hiring help.
- What else could I do with the time that I spend cleaning each week? Could I be exercising, making more money or enjoying time with friends or family?
- Am I using the time I should be using to focus on my health and well being?
- Does the cost of a professional cleaner really compare to what I could be doing?
