Whether you have a weekly cleaning service or not, sometimes your home needs a little extra attention. The following are some reasons you might want to consider hiring a cleaner.

Spring Cleaning

Even though we don’t typically get snowed-in here in Texas, your home might be in need of a good spring cleaning. You can do this yourself, but who wants to spend hours mopping and wiping down cabinets when the weather is perfect for spending time outdoors? A one time cleaning service will get your home looking its best so you can spend more time doing what you love.

A Big Party

If you are having a big party, or need help cleaning up after one, it might be a good idea to hire a one time cleaning service. Even if you enjoy cleaning, you will have plenty of other tasks demanding your time and attention. Did you order enough food? Have you set up enough decorations? Did you rent enough chairs? Will the flowers arrive on time? So instead of spending hours scrubbing baseboards and vent covers, hire a cleaner to take care of it for you! That way you know you’ll have plenty of time to go pick up the cake and run that last minute errand that always pops up.

Move Out Cleaning

Whether you rent or own your home, you will need to clean it before you move out. Moving is a stressful time, especially if you are still working while trying to get things packed up. There are parts of your home that will need cleaning that we normally don’t think about. You’ll want to wipe down all appliances, cabinets inside and out, as well as clean vent covers and baseboards. The time spent on those tasks could be better spent on packing on getting things set up at your new home.

Hiring a move out cleaning is especially important if you are renting your home. When you signed your lease, you had to put down a security deposit. If anything is dirty or damaged your landlord may keep that deposit to cover the cost of fixing it up for the next tenant. If the cost of cleaning or repair is greater than your deposit, you may be responsible for paying the difference. Hiring a cleaning service ensures you leave the property spotless and in good repair.

Preparing For a Baby

If you are preparing to have a baby or are recovering from having one, chances are your house could use a little TLC. Even if your nesting urges have you washing windows and scrubbing baseboards, you likely don’t have a lot of energy to spare. You have a lot of sleepless nights ahead of you, so enjoy the opportunity to rest now while you can.

Once baby has arrived, cuddling your cute little bundle will be much higher on your list than dusting. Save yourself some hassle, or even sneak in that nap you so desperately need, by hiring a cleaner.

Surgery or Recent Illness

If you or a loved one has recently been ill or had surgery, it is a good idea to have your home professionally cleaned. There are a lot of surfaces in your home that can harbor germs and viruses that you don’t normally think to clean. Your cleaning technicians will do a thorough job wiping down commonly touched surfaces. For example: door frames, doorknobs, handles and light switches. Hire a professional crew to handle the cleaning so you can focus on getting better.

Holidays and House Guests

We all know how hectic it can be getting the house ready for the holidays. Its even more stressful when you know you will have house guests too. You’ll not only have to clean the whole house but get the guest bedroom ready as well. Instead of worrying that Aunt Helen will comment on the state of your banisters, hire a service. Your cleaning technicians will ensure your home is spotless. That way, you can spend more time relaxing and enjoying time with family.


Sometimes life throws you a curve-ball. Even if you usually do a good job of keeping up with the cleaning, sometimes the mess can become overwhelming. Or maybe you just really need a break. Hire a one time cleaning service to help you get back on track without the stress.
