Do you get excited about cleaning your house? Ya-no…Me neither. In fact, for me, cleaning is HARD –
read: intimidating, anxiety inducing, overwhelming, feels like I’m tackling the world, hard.
Once you’re done laughing at how ridiculous that sounds, hear me out.
REAL TALK: I’ve always been a messy person, clutter messy as opposed to dirty messy, but messy nonetheless. That said, I absolutely hate messes. Weird right? I know.
I joke about having undiagnosed ADD/ADHD, and I think that plays a huge part in why cleaning is literally, such a chore. A small routine clean, turns into me tearing the house apart, creating multiple larger projects, and subsequently getting so mentally and physically exhausted by the whole process that I wind up rage quitting and leaving a bigger mess than what I started with. I really struggle with the small stuff.
If this sounds familiar, and even if it doesn’t, you’re going to want to read on for 3 reasons you NEED a house cleaner.
In the interest of sanity, I recently turned my home cleaning over to the professionals at AspenClean – a premier house cleaning service for the eco-conscious consumer. From booking to the end of cleaning, the process was an absolute breeze and worked wonders for my cleaning induced anxiety.
You do a lot, house cleaning doesn’t have to be part of it
From the time we wake up to the time we go to sleep again it’s a balancing act of care-taking, working outside the home, grocery shopping, cooking, helping with homework, chauffeuring to practice, games, or other extra-curricular activities…A mom’s to-do list is never done. Having a house cleaner can take a lot of stress off the ever-increasing load. With Aspen Clean’s One time/Regular cleaning I was able to easily customize exactly what I wanted done through their online quote/booking system. Fridge cleaned, check! Dishes washed, check! Linen & towels changed, check! Laundry done, CHECK! All from behind my safe, judgement free computer screen. Those daunting tasks that take up so many precious evening hours were done on cleaning day before I arrived home, freeing up quality time to spend with my family.
Time spent with family, is time well spent
Full stop. Say it with me now – time spent with family, is time well spent. Who has the time or energy at the end of the day to clean? Not me! If your life is anything like mine, there’s an increasingly short period of time from when you get home to when you/your kids go to sleep. AspenClean has super flexible dates and times (including on the weekend) that fit with your schedule. For us, they came while I was at work and the kids were at school. Aside from checking the email reminder that was sent the day before cleaning confirming arrival time, I didn’t have to do a thing after booking (although I did do a little pre-tidy). I arrived home to a clean, clutter-free home without having to stress about cleaning the counters off before dinner-prep, or folding the pile of laundry on the couch before watching a movie with the kids.
They’re the professionals
Seriously though, I have a job, you have a job, they have a job. Let’s just all stick to what we’re good at here, mmkay? Plus, AspenClean isn’t just a cleaning service – they carry a full line of all-natural cleaning products designed to help avoid health risks and maintain a safe and chemical-free environment in your home. You know, for those in between spills and general cleaning that will inevitably need to be done. Their products use natural ingredients and organic essential oils, which are highly effective at fighting dirt and stains on a variety of surfaces. With a handful of kids and a pair of cats, it’s reassuring to know that AspenClean’s all-natural formulas are kid-safe and pet-safe too! I can’t count how many times I’ve scrubbed the grout in my bathtub with some highly toxic cleaner only to have it still look grungy. That grime was no match for AspenClean.
What stood out about AspenClean
The sign of a well cleaned house is the wall of scent that hits you when you open the door, right?! WRONG! I was surprised when I walked into my home the day that AspenClean came to not be knocked down by the strong, pungent smell of cleaner. The only scents left behind were the gentle smell of lavender, lime, bergamot and grapefruit from the organic essential oils used in their products. The crew at AspenClean brings everything required for a full house clean, including cleaning staff who are fully trained, bonded and insured for that added peace of mind.
And possibly one of the best perks of AspenClean – they are so confident in their products and service that they offer a satisfaction guarantee! That’s right, if you’re not completely satisfied, let them know within 24 hours and they’ll return to your home to make sure you’re completely happy. Not sure it gets much better than that.
