Are Cleaning Services Worth It?

A cleaning service saves you time, contributes to a healthy home environment, and reduces stress. Considering the benefits, we believe a cleaning service is totally worth it. We may be a little biased, so here’s some research and more details on the benefits of cleaning services for your home. 

Why Cleaning Services are Worth It

Time Savings

One of the most notable benefits of hiring a cleaning service is the time it saves you. Your time is very limited making it very valuable. You could spend your Saturdays cleaning toilets, vacuuming, and wiping down cabinet fronts. Or, you could take that time to make memories with your family, explore your city, or sit down and do nothing. Really, you could do anything because the pressing task of cleaning is taken care of.

A survey of 2,000 U.S. parents who live with their partner found that respondents spend almost 6 hours a week cleaning, almost a full work day. The biggest culprits? Over 50% of respondents revealed that sweeping and dusting took the most time. Cleaning the bathroom came in as the second task that takes up most of the respondents’ time. 

Imagine gaining a full day of work to do whatever you want. That’s the value of hiring a cleaning service. 

Investing in a Healthy Home

Cleaning your home regularly contributes to a healthier home. That’s an obvious statement but we understand that the health of your family is pretty high on your priorities. That’s why we believe that a healthier home is one of the top benefits of hiring a cleaning service. 

According to Doylestown Health, a clean home helps to curb allergies and asthma. They state, “regular cleaning like dusting, sweeping and vacuuming can remove dust, dust mites, pet dander and other allergens like pollen, which can cause asthma and allergies. Disinfecting and sanitizing bathrooms and kitchens where there’s moisture will also help curb the development of mold, another allergen.”

Advocate Health Care brings light to the reality of disease-causing germs that are so easily spread in kitchens and bathrooms. They state, “according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, gastrointestinal illness can be spread by contaminated food, and food-poisoning is less likely in kitchens that have been properly cleaned and sanitized.” 

Bathrooms also are easily contaminated with harmful bacteria that require proper and consistent sanitizing to prevent the spread of potential dangerous germs. We use hospital-grade cleaners to sanitize your home for all of our cleaning services. And our recurring cleaning services help to minimize the spread of germs in your home regularly.

Reduced Stress

A cleaned home reduces stress and boosts your mood overall. Moreover, clutter and mess can cause distraction, confusion, and tension. Clutter in your home can make it difficult for you to focus as you are thinking of the tasks you need to get done around your home.

Does this sound relatable? A psychiatrist from Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, IL makes this point, “when you live in a messy home, you are subconsciously reminded of work that needs to be finished and visually, your eyes do not have a place to rest.”

Also, a clean home is a great mood booster. We hear time and again from our clients how thrilled they are to come home to a clean space. Here are a few testimonials – 

“I love my H&R Fridays! Debra worked so hard and left my house looking and smelling wonderful!” – Kischel

“Love the days when I get home and Maddie from H&R Cleaning has been at our house! As soon as I walk in the door the clean fresh smell puts me in a great mood and I’m happy to see that my house is cleaned and fresh and I can relax!” – Rebekah

“The peace of mind is irreplaceable and the feeling of walking into a clean home that smells great when you’ve been at work all day is hard to beat!” – Abby

What to Consider Before Hiring a Cleaning Service

The points above make a good argument for the benefits of a cleaning service. But we understand you may need help deciding, so we’ve provided several factors to consider prior to scheduling a cleaning service with us. 


Consider your budget and what you can realistically afford. Also keep in mind that by hiring a cleaning service, you are earning time back and providing a clearer and less cluttered mind.

Your lifestyle plays a large part in deciding what cleaning service fits best for you and your home. If you have kids and pets in your home, or if you have elderly or family members that require more help, you may require more frequent cleaning. The activities in your home, the time you have to clean, and your schedule also are factors to consider when choosing the frequency and level of cleaning your home needs.
