Working from home is officially a thing. As things stand, this new way of life is here to stay. Especially as remote working as a whole is on the rise. That means your home isn’t just a place you return to at the end of the day anymore, as it’s being used for both work and living purposes. The sofa where you’d normally hit up Netflix is now a boardroom, and spare rooms have become makeshift offices.
With the extra demand on your property comes more mess to clean. Here are our thoughts on why if you’re working from home you still need to hire a cleaner.
It Saves Time
You might think you have more time to clean now you work from home. In truth, our homes are full of distractions, especially if you are also trying to homeschool. Even getting up to put the washing machine on can take up more of your day than is ideal! With all these extra tasks eating up your day, this leaves less time to schedule a regular clean of your home. Cleaners are a fantastic resource not least because they will save you time, meaning you can spend yours relaxing not vacuuming or mopping.
Better Zoom Backgrounds
Who could have predicted holding business meetings in your living room would be a thing? Zoom backgrounds can reveal more about our lives than is desirable, especially if you struggle to keep up with the cleaning. However, by hiring a cleaner you’ll never have to worry about an untidy background making you look unprofessional. You can even schedule a clean the day before any big meetings so that all the focus is on you, and not your messy backdrop!
You May Have Stopped Noticing The Mess
Let’s face it – if you’re cooped up in the same environment all day you may have stopped noticing how untidy your home is. Plus before, you may have worked in an office that had a cleaner. If you’re spending hours in the same spot, it’s probably not as clean or tidy as you think. Especially if you have kids or pets running around too. A cleaner is a fresh pair of eyes and will make light work of any dust, dirt or grime in your home you probably haven’t even noticed.
Many studies over the years have shown that you are far more likely to be productive if the environment you are working in is clean and tidy. Trying to manage working from home with all the other stresses you have to deal with can leave very little room for cleaning. However, by scheduling a cleaner to visit your home at least once a week, you’re much more likely to stay on track. An added bonus is that your working environment will smell and look much cleaner too!
To Sum Up
Hiring a cleaner if you are working from home has several benefits. It will save you time and energy, and help to keep your spaces looking clean and professional. Plus, in a time of great stress for everyone, knowing your home is clean and inviting is one less thing to worry about.
