Be honest: have you overlooked using a cleaning service in your apartment because you think it’s too small to need one? Or maybe it’s a rental, and you feel like a professional home cleaning is a waste of time in a space that’s not “yours”.
Here’s the thing though, regardless of whether or not you own your apartment, this is still your home. You come back here every night after work. It’s your refuge from the hustle and bustle of busy Austin, TX. There are so many benefits to using an Austin house cleaning service for your apartment.
Now that our houses also often serve as our office, home, and where we spend a lot of free time, it’s even more important to keep the space beautiful. Using a cleaning company will provide you with a healthy, cleaned space to live, regardless of size or ownership.
These are the top benefits of using an Austin, TX apartment cleaning service.
1. Routine Cleaning Services Keep Pests Away
Mice, ants, and even rats can become unwanted residents in our homes. Even if we’re clean people, there are spots we miss or overlook. All it takes is a couple of forgotten bread crumbs under the couch to have pests in the house. In a city such as Austin, it’s easy for rodents to spread.
Thankfully, the employees of cleaning companies are trained to spot hidden messes, dust, and dirt that attract critters. If you’re not sure how often to schedule a maid service, consider a weekly cleaning service to be sure that you are getting the thorough house cleaning you need to get rid of unwanted pests in the home.
2. Be Prepared For Short Term Rental Opportunities in Austin, TX
You’ve probably already noticed, but in Austin, TX real estate and tourism are thriving. The city is welcoming new residents and visitors every single day. This can be an opportunity for you, and you don’t need a full-fledged business to be able to make some extra income off of this. Plenty of websites now allow you to rent out your Austin house temporarily, making your extra cash and giving visitors a clean place to stay.
But, this only works if you have a clean house. When people are spending money to stay at your house, they expect a higher quality of house cleaning than they would if your friends were coming over. Hire cleaners from a local Texas company (who cater to the short term rental market) to clean your house and have it ready for paying guests.
3. Save More Free Time To Spend On The Things You Love
When you don’t need to worry about cleaning every day, week, or even month…you have more time and mental energy to invest in other things that you truly care about. Sure, you could spend weekends dusting, mopping, and vacuuming if you don’t want to pay a commercial maid service to do it for you, but think of all the hours you’re spending on chores. And even with all that time you’re spending, you’re probably not giving your house cleaning the same quality service that professional cleaning services would.
Instead, you could spend time with your family, enjoy one of your hobbies, work at your own job, or just enjoy spending time in Austin.
Call a house cleaning business to take back your time.
4. Have Better Relationships With Your Family Or Roommates
Have you ever lived with someone who had different cleaning standards than you? It can cause a lot of tension, and even arguments. Whether it’s amongst family members, a spouse, or a roommate that you’re not related to, it’s important to be on the same page about how clean you expect your house to be.
Using a residential house cleaning service can alleviate some of the pressure we put on each other to keep the space clean. It removes any emotion out of the situation, especially if there’s been some resentment building up over time.
By using cleaning services, you can enjoy the good hygiene and extra free time of having a clean home but without all the added stress of trying to schedule cleaning for multiple people.
5. Leave It To The Professionals
Here’s the truth: professional cleaners are going to be better than you at home cleaning. By hiring a maid service, you will enjoy all the perks that come with a cleaned home but without spending hours doing the work yourself.
Cleaning services provide a full home cleaning, and (if the business is good) they come with top of the line cleaners who know exactly how to clean, down to the last detail. If you use cleaning services regularly and the same maid comes to your home, they offer the added benefit of getting to know your space. Many cleaners get to know the preferences of clients and the home so that they can offer cleaning services that best fit your unique needs.
6. Routine Cleanings Can Cost Less Than Deep Cleaning Once In A While
When considering the price of a house cleaning in Austin, there a couple of different factors to consider. One is how clean your home is. If you’re just doing a deep cleaning once in a while in your space, it might cost more than if you had routine cleanings on a regular schedule.
If a maid is coming twice a month, the space will stay cleaned and might end up saving you money in the long run.
7. It Makes it Easier to Move
Are you the type of person who likes to move every year or two? That’s common in Austin, Texas where the red-hot real estate market makes it hard to stay in one place for long. If you’re using a weekly cleaning service, it’ll be easier to pack and move out when your lease is up for two reasons:
- You’ll know where everything is (no endless searching for items you haven’t seen once in the last year) and
- You’re more likely to get your security deposit back if the house is clean.
If you haven’t been using a routing cleaning service, you can always call us for a deep move in/move out cleaning.
