3 Reasons to Engage a Home Cleaning Service

[fa icon="calendar"] Sep 4, 2019 9:27:01 AM / by Lim Jia Hui

Hiring a part-time home cleaner to give the house a much-needed cleanup every week is not uncommon. For dual-income families who struggle to find time to do housework on weekdays, yet resistant to hire a stay-in maid due to privacy issues, a part-time home cleaner is the best compromise. The rising costs of living spell good news for home cleaning companies. As more families jump on the bandwagon to hire part-time cleaners, more home cleaning companies have emerged in recent years. Given that many people find home cleaning services a satisfactory solution, and home cleaning companies are dime a dozen, what's holding you back from engaging a home cleaning service? Let CaregiverAsia convince you through three reasons!

Book a trusted, professional home cleaning service with Helpling.

Trusted professional service

If you're getting by without requiring professional help, congrats! That means you're able to clean your house to a level of tidiness that is acceptable for daily living. However, that does not imply that a professional home cleaning service is not a value-add. Are you properly utilizing the cleaning materials to reach every nook and cranny of the house? Do you know of some housework hacks to make your job easier? If you find yourself spending lots of time and effort cleaning yet producing results that you're not completely satisfied with, consider learning a thing or two from a professional home cleaner. 

Apart from being assured that your house will be spick and span after the service, you don't have to risk feeling heartbroken for damaged possessions. Take for instance Helpling, Europe's largest home cleaning service platform with over 250,000 satisfied customers and an average cleaner rating of 4.5 out of 5 stars. When you book a home cleaning service with Helpling, you are covered by an insurance policy of up to $1 million for your home and possessions, in the (unlikely) event things turn awry. What's more, cleaners undergo an aptitude test, face-to-face interview and background check before they are allowed to list their services on Helpling. With the multiple barriers that they have to cross, encountering a nightmarish home cleaner will be the least of your worries. Still feeling iffy? You have Customer Service to fall back on. Helpling's dedicated Customer Care team operates on weekdays from 9am to 6pm. There's also a customer review page for you to read first-hand reviews of customers.

Home cleaning service can free up your time and even improve your health in the long run!

Health is Wealth

Needless to mention, home cleaning is physically demanding. A hard day's work, children vying for attention and a sluggish body make procrastination irresistible. Worst of all, doing housework repeatedly puts you at increased risk of repetitive strain injury (a range of disorders affecting muscles, nerves and tendons). Occupational therapists from Singapore General Hospital conducted a study in 2012 and arrived at the conclusion that the largest group of patients with upper limb RSI are women aged in their 50s, with common trigger factors including washing clothes by hands and wringing mops. Comparing to spending a hefty sum in nursing yourself back to health, delegating home cleaning to a professional at affordable costs is much better. 

Apart from physical injury, cleaning products may contain chemicals that are detrimental to health. In a study conducted by the University of Bergen, women who regularly use home cleaning products experience a decline in lung function equivalent to that of smoking 20 cigarettes a day over 10 to 20 years! Scientists suspect that the chemicals found in cleaning products irritate the lungs, causing damage over time. 

Before the long-term damage is done, lack of sufficient rest from doing housework would have weakened your immune system and made yourself more susceptible to the common cold.

Time is priceless

Do you find yourself going through the vicious cycle of catching up on work on weekdays, and catching up on housework on weekends? How to free up time for yourself and your family when tasks are snowballing? By leaving the home cleaning to the experts, you can utilize your time to complete your work, catch up with your long-lost friends, go on day trips with your family, and even get involved in new hobbies. Do you notice how worthwhile the deal is? By freeing yourself from one time-consuming chore, you can have four other missions accomplished! 

Longing to travel yet deterred by the mountain of chores you have to do when you return home? This is the best opportunity to book a home cleaning service! If regular housework is already tedious to complete, let alone a mountain of chores after an overseas trip. Helpling's home cleaners can cover a good range of housework, including the following:

  • Vacuuming the carpets
  • Mopping the floor
  • Clearing the trash
  • Cleaning toilets, bedrooms and the kitchen
  • Dusting furniture, wall hangings and electrical devices
  • Making the bed
Therefore, you just have to take care of the remaining minor household chores! With such a wide coverage of duties, spring cleaning becomes less of a worry as well.

Are you ready to have a professional cleaner spark joy in your home? CaregiverAsia has partnered with Helpling to offer quality home cleaning services at reasonable rates. First-time users get to enjoy $20 off the total price on 3 hours and above of home cleaning services.
