Calling in the Cleaning Company: To Do or Not to Do?
We live in a world that permanently seems to chase us everywhere. We sleep too little, drink too much and run aimlessly towards new debts, new responsibilities and new experiences just because everyone else is doing it.In such a world, taking the time off to do the simple things, such house cleaning, can be absolutely blissful. But it can be monstrous at the same time too. Sure, we have professional house cleaning services at our disposal, but do we actually know when we should be calling them – and when we can do the job ourselves? Read on and find out more about this. 1. Upholstery cleaningUpholstery cleaning can be a tad tricky, especially if you don’t have much experience behind you and if you have a fear of ruining your brand new, pretty upholstery items. That’s perfectly normal, though!You can do the job yourself as long as the tag on your upholstery says “W” or “S” (water-based or dry solvent detergent use). You can also do the job yourself with many types of stains such as wax or grease. You shouldn’t do the job yourself if you don’t have the tag to your upholstery anymore, if you have it and it says “X” or if the upholstery itself is vintage or antique. In these cases, calling in the cleaning professionals will be the best thing to do. 2. Office cleaning Office cleaning can be a spiky business regardless of what kind of office you run. On the one hand, you will definitely want your office to look presentable and nice (which automatically rules out dirt, obviously). On the other hand though, you will probably linger in between calling for the services of a cleaning company and splitting the cleaning tasks among your employees. The truth is that going for the first option is the best way to go around it, and not just for one reason. For instance, your employees could feel upset, irritated and even offended if you ask them to do cleaning jobs. Even more than that, you will not want them to spend precious work time on doing a job they weren’t hired to do.The only time when office cleaning should be done with the help of your employees is when you simply want to re-organise things. Your employees need to know how where their paperwork is “hidden” so they may want to participate in re-organising everything as well. 3. Move out cleaning. When you move out of an apartment or house you have lived in, it’s more than polite to leave everything clean and in good order behind you. That means that you may want to call in for the professional cleaning company. Not that you cannot actually do this yourself (as it will most likely be really basic house cleaning things you will have to do), but the truth is that moving can be very stressing and time-consuming and the last thing you will want to worry about is cleaning. Instead of focusing how to scrub off stains from your landlord’s furniture, you should think more of how to quickly organise your things so that the moving and unpacking process goes as smoothly as possible! 4. End of lease cleaning. This works the same as with move out cleaning, but on the opposite “direction”. You want the home you are cleaning to look great by the time new potential tenants come and visit, so hiring a company to take care of this can be one of the best options you have at hand.
