Why you should hire a cleaning service even though you have a nanny
Your nanny has one seriously important job: to care for your most precious gift, your child. But chances are, your nanny does some cleaning too. This is great, it keeps your house tidy, your counters spotless, your dishes done – and laundry is probably covered by them too.
Have you ever thought that your home might need more cleaning than what a nanny can provide? While a nanny may clean up spills and crumbs as they happen – and might do the washing up – your home needs much more to keep it clean and sanitized, both for your little one and for you.
What your nanny can cover
Your nanny is great for covering the basics and keeping your home tidy. While your little one naps, they can do a quick wipe down of your kitchen and unpack your dishwasher. They may even be able to throw some clothes in the washing machine and give your sofa cushions a quick fluff.
However, you can’t really expect your nanny to do more than that. Taking care of your child (or children) – and even your pets – is a full-time job.
A nanny probably isn’t going to have time to do more serious cleaning, and that’s definitely not their fault. This is why it’s a good idea to bring the experts in.
What your nanny can’t cover
Have you ever felt like, although your nanny does clean, your home never really feels clean?
Your house needs to be deep-cleaned and sanitized regularly to make it a safe and healthy environment for both your little one and you.
Dividing your cleaning responsibilities between your nanny and a professional cleaning company is your best bet if you want a clean and safe environment.
Let the experts do the heavy lifting while your nanny does the upkeep, and you’ll have one seriously sparkling clean home.
Efficient cleaning requires regular dusting, vacuuming, mopping and the use of non-toxic yet powerful cleaning products. You can’t expect your nanny to handle all of this on their own. Having a cleaning service visit your home once or twice a week ensures that your space is actually clean and not just tidied up.
What a cleaning service can help you with
Your home needs dusting, vacuuming, mopping, and deep-cleaning surfaces in your kitchen and bathroom as well as the floors throughout your home. This is the best way to keep your environment clean and free of germs and bacteria. And your nanny likely didn’t sign up for that at all.
We remove cobwebs, clean ceiling fans, dust your baseboards and lampshade, wipe down windowsills, and reline waste baskets, to name just some of the services we provide when we visit your home.
Our team has a strict 100-point checklist of all the cleaning tasks they need to do while they are in your home, so you can rest assured the job has been done properly and thoroughly. We also offer customized services based on your specific needs around the house.
Lastly, the cleaning products that you buy for your nanny to use are great, but they aren’t the best thing to use for deep-cleaning and sanitizing your home. We use strong cleaning products that provide a really deep clean and sanitization, all while being safe for you and not harmful to the environment.
