When the moving day approaches, inevitably comes the question of cleaning up after yourself. If you rent an apartment, your deposit is at stake, as your landlord may decline to return it to you if the place is dirty. And, if you are selling you current home, it needs to be spotless – who would buy a dusty and messy house.
There’s no doubt that hiring a maid can be very helpful, but it is really necessary? Well, it depends on your situation.
Evaluate your cleaning needs
If dirt and grime have built up, perhaps you have been living in your current dwelling for a long time, you will have to deep clean your home. In that scenario, you may need to spend some money in professional and efficient cleaning products and a lot of time to clean up the stains.
The size of your home is another factor you need to consider. If you are moving out of a large dwelling, you will have a lot of cleaning to do. The larger the space, the more time you will need to clean it up.
Get an estimate from a cleaning company
Look for a professional cleaning company online and research a few potential companies. You may ask friends to recommend you a maid. Generally, your estimate will be based on the size of your home. However, if there are any stains that need special treatment, you may be charged above the regular price. Discuss this matter with the company before you hire it. Make sure you will hire skilled professionals.
Weigh the pros and the cos(t)
Once you got a few estimates, you can decide whether to hire a maid or do the cleaning by yourself. If you think that you can manage the cleaning job on your own then you should go for it. Make a plan, have the cleaning products lined up and leave enough time for the job. On the other hand, if you think it’s too difficult for you to clean the whole house flawlessly, hire professionals who won’t make you break the bank.
Finally, a maid service can be a great help in cleaning your home before you move out. If you do the math, in some cases, a professional could help you move out faster and even, save some money on those expensive quality cleaning agents.
