In a survey of 900 Americans from different backgrounds, it was found that only 35 percent do a monthly deep cleaning, according to The Waycroft. Almost twice that number of people do a bit of tidying up daily, but this isn’t enough to truly make a home feel clean. Just like condensation builds up in a bathroom, so much dirt and grime builds up in a home that a single person or family can’t hope to clean it all off in the little time they have to themselves. This is where hiring cleaning services comes in. Calling in the cleaning cavalry, even just once a year, can have profound effects on multiple aspects of your life. Here are some of the biggest ones.

You’ll Build Up a Good Baseline of Cleanliness

Have you ever noticed that no matter how much you clean, your house just doesn’t seem to feel 100 percent spotless? And it gets filthy again all too quickly to boot. This is because you haven’t truly deep-cleaned it yet. This is the edge professional cleaning services have over DIY cleaning. The techniques, materials, and product they make use of also ensure that the cleanliness lasts far longer.

Not to mention, getting your house professionally cleaned will actually free up more time for you. Think about it: if you keep anything even approaching a passably tidy home, you tend to pick up after yourself and the people you live with a lot more frequently, with a dusting here and a vacuuming there every now and again. Building up a good baseline of cleanliness makes these little cleaning chores far less of a hassle and makes it so that you don’t have to do them as often too.

It Enhances Your Social Life

Once you get your home professionally cleaned, you might notice that it’s taken on a much fancier light. The colors pop more, natural light reflects and scatters better, and the general atmosphere just feels much more pleasant. This is the perfect state to use it to host a house party or a dinner party.

You’ll also be much less embarrassed about people seeing your house in general. No more awkwardness or saying “sorry about the mess” when a friend has to drop by unexpectedly. And since you’ll have so much more time on your hands, you get that much more time to dedicate to improving your work-life balance, including going out with friends and other social activities.

Clean Homes Reduce Stress Levels

Dirt and clutter adds to our stress levels, regardless of how tolerant we think we are to them. And if you’re sensitive to messes but don’t have the time to truly deep-clean your home, the stress that they bring can really pile up. Professional cleaners can completely eliminate dirt and clutter from your home and make it good as new.

You can even give them pointers for their cleaning plan so that they focus on places that are more important to you, such as your bedroom and office. This way, rooms that you use more can look and feel perpetually clean with minimal maintenance. This ensures that your places of work are completely free of stressful distractions, and your places of leisure and rest are always conducive to relaxation.

Deep Cleaning Makes Your Environment Much Healthier

Indoor air can be fairly easy to compromise. Even with good ventilation, if a contaminant persists in some neglected corner, the air in your home is never going to be completely clean. This can lead to all sorts of complications, from developing asthma and allergies to serious respiratory problems like bronchitis.

Paying a cleaning company to do a thorough, bottom-up run through your home is by far the best way to make sure that there is close to zero likelihood of this happening. Getting rid of any pesky odors you may be dealing with is a huge bonus too. If you’ve ever had to endure a sharp, foul odor that’s hard to pin down, cleaning services are perhaps your best bet at stamping them out.

It Adds Value to Your Home

A professionally cleaned home has a brighter luster to it, and this drives up property value. It may only raise it a little, but if you intend to sell your home sometime in the future, every little bit helps. Plus, since you’ll have built up a good baseline of cleanliness, this good-as-new look can last for a long while with minimal cleaning on your part.

Professional cleaning can cost a bit more than simply purchasing your own cleaning materials and dedicating a Sunday to try and make your home cleaner by yourself. But the price is well worth it if you truly want your home to achieve a noticeable shine inside and out.
