4 Reasons to Hire a Cleaner for Christmas
Christmas is just a few short weeks away, making now the time to start preparing your home for the big day. Last year, we shared a Christmas cleaning checklist to help get your home guest-ready but let’s be honest, how many of us really have time to get all of that work done?
December has to be one of the busiest times of the year. Although things may be starting to wind down at work for the festive period (unless you work in retail – our thoughts are with you!) you’re bound to have a jam-packed social calendar. With work parties, family events and the kids’ nativities to attend, you’re probably wondering how on earth you’re going to fit in cleaning your home for Christmas too? The answer? Don’t! Get someone to do it for you!
Hosting Christmas is kind of a big deal, don’t you think? Not only have you got the responsibility of cooking the turkey to perfection (and not leaving something in the microwave…as my mother usually does) but you’ve also got to decorate the house (until it looks like a grotto) and make room for all the relatives! There’s always a long list of tasks to complete and for many, it can feel a little overwhelming. And dare we say, even begin to take away some of the joy away from Christmas itself.
We can’t be having that can we? Christmas is supposed to be magical!
It’s why we think hiring a cleaner is the best thing you can do for yourself (or for a loved one) this Christmas. Need a little more convincing? Keep reading!
1. Enjoy a stress-free season of joy
As we said before, the run up to Christmas can be a little hectic, especially if you’re hosting your friends and family. Rather than trying to spin all the plates yourself, why not hire a cleaner to give you a hand?
Hiring a cleaner, even if it’s only for a one off Christmas deep clean, will mean you can concentrate on other tasks such as buying Christmas gifts, decorating your home and visiting friends. You’ll be able to fully enjoy Christmas, as you won’t be stressing about how clean your home is. By hiring a professional cleaner for Christmas, you can have the peace of mind that your home will be spotless, sparkling and fully ready for the festivities.
Just because you can do it all, doesn’t mean you should have to. Think about your well being this Christmas and treat yourself to a professional Christmas clean.
2. Impress your guests
Understandably, Christmas is a time when people get house-proud. Although it’s not a competition, it’s only natural to want the cleanest home and best Christmas decorations to impress your visitors.
But what if you don’t have time to do it all?
The answer is simple. Hire a professional cleaner to take care of your Christmas cleaning, so you can focus on the fun bit – the decorating! A professional cleaner will blitz your home from top to bottom, ensuring they complete all of the tasks on your list. They can deep clean busy areas of your home, like your kitchen and make sure your spare bedrooms are in prime condition for your guests.
And the best bit? No one need know that you’ve hired a professional cleaner for Christmas. It’s not cheating – it’s clever!
3. Avoid cleaning tasks you really don’t want to do…
Good food and Christmas festivities go hand in hand, so your oven is likely to be in regular use over the next few weeks. Is it looking like it’s seen better days? Then it’s probably time to give it a clean. Dirt and bacteria can quickly build-up in ovens that haven’t been cleaned and you don’t want to risk food poisoning spoiling the holidays for your guests!
But let’s be honest, how many of us actually enjoy cleaning our ovens? I don’t imagine anyone’s raising a hand right now. In fact, surveys have found that cleaning the oven is Brits’ most hated cleaning chore.
Rather than waste your time doing a cleaning task you despise, why not outsource it to a cleaner? Think of it as a Christmas present to yourself!
4. Spend more quality time with your family
The biggest and most important reason for hiring a cleaner this Christmas is that it will give you the gift of time. Rather than being bogged down cleaning your home, you can spend more quality time with your family.
While having a clean house at Christmas will impress your guests and make you feel good, it’s not the be-all and end-all. You’re not going to look back in the future and think, I wish I cleaned my home more that Christmas. You’ll be thinking about all the wonderful memories you made instead!
Concentrate on enjoying precious moments with your family and leave the cleaning to us.
Cleaners as Christmas gifts
Hiring a cleaner for someone may sound like rather a strange Christmas gift but actually it’s very thoughtful. If they struggle to clean due to old age or a disability, don’t have time to clean with a busy work schedule or have lots of children to look after, then the offer of a professional cleaner will likely be a very well-received gift!
Post-Christmas clean up
We’ve talked about how hiring a cleaner can help you prepare for Christmas but what happens when all of the festivities are over? There’s a high chance your house will need a good clean then too!
Start the New Year off right by treating your home to a post-Christmas deep clean. Think of it as a late Christmas present to yourself!
