How Hiring a House Cleaning Service Can Simplify Your Life

Your calendar is packed to the gills. Your to-do list is neverending, your family rarely spends quality time together and you’re always on the go.

There has to be a better way.

If this sounds anything like you, you’re probably searching for solutions to streamline your schedule. Otherwise, your life is one nonstop blur. It’s stressful, and it’s no way to go through life.

Hiring a house cleaning service has all kinds of perks. The biggest one? Your whole routine can be so much simpler.

Don’t worry about adding mopping, vacuuming or scrubbing the tub to your to-do list. Here’s what you need to know about the benefits of hiring a house cleaning service.

Save Time, and Free Up Hours From Your Schedule

Cleaning your house takes time—especially to get it to look the way you’d like it to look. Dusting baseboards, wiping down countertops, cleaning the mirrors and sinks in the bathroom? This all takes time away from doing the things you really love.

It takes quite a bit of time to clean your home. On average, Americans spend around six hours each week cleaning, straightening and organizing their homes. That’s nearly an entire workday each week spent just cleaning your home—time that could be spent enjoying time with your family. It’s a challenge to balance it all!

We’ve all seen the home blogs, rainbow-colored organizational Instagram accounts and cleaning-obsessed hashtags. Perhaps you spend hours cleaning only to have your family come home and dump out the toy box, dirty the sink or empty the contents of their backpacks on the counter. And there goes all of your hard work.

Keeping your home clean can be stressful—and emotional. That doesn’t even cover the “mental load” of managing a household that eats away at what’s left of your spare time.

But here’s a little secret:

Those beautifully curated Instagram photos and home blogs? Chances are there’s at least a little clutter out of frame or it’s because these people dedicate their entire life to keeping their house clean. You’ve got more important things to do.

When you hire an expert house cleaning company like Mops & Buckets, we’ll take care of the dirty work. You get more free time away from your cleaning supplies and more time doing what you love. You don’t have to do it all yourself; you get to choose your priorities.

So when you want to choose family over cleaning? Mops & Buckets is here to give you the impeccably clean home you want without all the work.

Save Money Too

The cost of cleaning your home can vary greatly based on the number of rooms and how frequently you prefer professional cleanings, but most averages are somewhere between $100 and $175 per visit.

Your time is worth money. But how much does your time cost?

You can estimate how much money you’ll save by comparing your hourly earnings to the cost of your recurring house cleaning services.

If it takes six hours to clean your home each week but you earn $35 per hour, ostensibly your time spent cleaning your home costs you $210 of your time.

Even at $175 per visit, that’s still $35 you save in time each week.

Cut Down on Cleaning Products

Have you ever totaled up what you spend each month on cleaning supplies alone? If you do all your own cleaning, you might be spending more than you think. reports that an average family spends anywhere between $40 and $50 each month just on cleaning products. By the end of the year? You’re paying $600 for sprays, paper towels, scrub brushes and mop heads. And if you have to use a specialty floor cleaner, you can add in an additional $10 each month, or $120 per year.

The upside of recurring house cleaning services? Our cleaning teams bring their own microfiber cloths and eco-friendly cleaning products to deliver a cleaning that’s not only environmentally safe and designed to prevent cross-contamination but one that also cuts back on the number of cleaning products you need. Sure, you’ll need a few things to manage messes between our visits, but you won’t use them up quite so quickly.

Less money on cleaning supplies means more money in the budget for a special family dinner, a new board game for family game night or even a babysitter!

Enjoy a Clean, Healthy Home

Having a clean home is an important psychological tool. It can help keep your family’s anxiety levels low and even make you happier and healthier, and you can’t put a price on that. And while a cluttered home can lead to weight gain, an orderly home can help you make healthy choices. This means weekly or biweekly house cleaning services might even help you establish healthy habits.

Additionally, germs hang out throughout your house, and the wrong bacteria or pathogens can help keep your family from catching a bug. Our cleaning teams use proven methods to help prevent the spread of bacteria throughout your home. We’ll clean the places where bacteria love to lurk and ensure the frequent touchpoints in your home get cleaned at every visit. What kinds of touchpoints harbor germs?

  • Countertops
  • Handrails
  • Doorknobs and cabinet pulls
  • Light switches
  • Sink faucets
