Tips / Other

While it might not be in your budget to hire a cleaning service every week or two, it can definitely be a worthwhile expense. Hiring a cleaning crew doesn’t have to be as unattainable as it may seem — once you shop around and find a reasonable price, it’s a great way to multitask and prep for specific occasions.


For Parties

If you’re having guests over and have a whole slew of prep to do before they arrive, take cleaning off your list. While the professionals clean your home, you can continue prepping in another room, get yourself ready, run easy errands and do any last-minute touches you now have time for. Having the place organized is a plus, but let the crew get to the dusting and vacuuming.


Check out price-compare sites like Angie’s List and find a nearby cleaning service that works with your budget and timeline, or do your own research and call a few services in your area that can work on specific trouble spots in the home.


For Moving

Moving in and out of a new place typically requires a deep clean. This is best accomplished by a cleaning crew, who typically come with two or more cleaners to tackle the space. Most bring their own supplies, but you should have a few staples they can work with, if need be, like a mop, vacuum and trash bags.


Check out Handy, Merry Maids and The Maids to compare prices (and maybe score coupons using Retail Me Not and Honey) or search your area for an affordable service.


While Away

If you’re traveling and want to come home to a clean house or apartment, book the service on an app. You can enlist the help of Angie’s List or find a local crew that can coordinate with someone housesitting your property, or check out cleaning service apps like Tidy and Properly. This apps lend well to rental property use, meaning this crew understands the get in, clean and get out service you may require.
