Why Fall Cleaning is the New Spring Cleaning
Trust us, fall cleaning is the new spring cleaning. It’s more important, more satisfying and more crucial for your family’s health and the well-being of your home.
Now that autumn’s here, every homeowner should have a fall cleaning game plan in place. But if you’re like most homeowners, it’s hard to find the time and energy for a proper fall cleaning of your home.
A one-time cleaning service might be something you’re considering. By hiring a professional fall cleaning service, you can save yourself a massive amount of hassle and stress, all while giving your home a deeper and healthier clean.
Of course, fall cleaning services come at a cost, so you’ll want to be sure that they’re worth it. Here are a few things to think about before you make your decision.
Does My Home Really Need Fall Cleaning Services?
If you can’t handle fall cleaning duties on your own, you might decide to hire a professional cleaning service. Or you might decide to avoid fall cleaning completely.
You wouldn’t be the only one to skip fall cleaning for your home. Most homeowners don’t bother with a detailed deep-clean each autumn. Instead, they stick to the same cleaning routine they maintain for most of the year.
But if you only deep-clean your home once a year, key areas get neglected. Ovens and refrigerators need deep-cleaning at least every six months, if not more often. Certain styles of carpet and hard flooring become worn and/or stained prematurely without a detailed clean twice a year. In kitchens and bathrooms, grimy build-up and greasy stains become a nightmare to remove — and a major bacterial risk — without regular deep-cleaning.
The good news is that your home likely doesn’t need the same level of attention that you’d put into spring cleaning. Scaling back the intensity of your fall cleaning plan can help make fall cleaning more manageable. This can save you time and/or money, depending on whether you’re cleaning by yourself or hiring a fall cleaning service.
Costs of Hiring Fall Cleaning Services
The list of pros for hiring a professional fall cleaning service is long. You get less stress, less housework, and more time for yourself. Meanwhile, your home gets the deep-clean it needs to feel fresh and look its best for the winter months.
The list of cons is a short one. For most people, the decision whether or not to hire a fall cleaning service simply comes down to costs.
But the actual costs of a fall cleaning service may be significantly less than you think. The rate of a professional cleaning service can be offset by the home maintenance savings that come with a proper deep-clean. Then there’s the matter of how you value your time. There’s a good chance that the hour you’ll save by hiring a fall cleaning service will be worth more than the cost of the service itself. That’s especially true if the cleaners you hire can deliver a spotless clean in half the time that you’d need to achieve the same results.
