Having a cleaning service makes life a lot easier especially for today’s families that are always on the move. Know the benefits of having a house cleaning service for the working family.Remember Donna Reed? She wore pearls and high heels to clean her spotless house that you would never suspect had two teenagers living in it. She greeted her husband at the door with a smile and a full course meal every night. Sigh.Well most working women today are working outside the home and full course meals have become whatever you can unthaw and cook the fastest. Life has changed for most families since the idealized days of Donna Reed but that doesn’t mean your house should look like a tornado hit it every day.Between driving kids to school and back, sporting events and social events you can start to feel like you spend more time in your car than in your home.
Coming home to a house that is messy and disarrayed can make you feel overwhelmed. Nobody wants to work all day and then come home to a messy house that needs to be cleaned. A good one will do the basics such as dusting, vacuuming and cleaning floors. Some services are able to do extra jobs such as washing dishes, doing laundry and cleaning windows.When you are looking for a service make sure to ask what services are provided and how much extras will cost. It is always a good idea to make a list of what you want done and the priorities for getting it done and leave the list with the service when they come. If your priorities change it is helpful to have an updated list to reflect the changes.
If you are hiring a service you can either choose to hire a business that will employee their own contractors and you will be the client or you can hire a cleaning person and assume the role of employer. If you decide to go with a cleaning person you will have some added responsibilities such as ensuring the person is legally able to work in the United States which is verified by a government identification card and a valid social security card.You will also be liable for completing any employer tax forms so if you go this route and plan to have a regular service it is a good idea to consult a tax consultant on your responsibilities. If you choose to hire one that employees cleaning contractors you won’t have to worry about any of these issues since you will be the client. Whichever choice you make be assured when you come home from a hard day at work you may not have a full course meal waiting for you but you will have a clean house
