Life has changed since our moms and grandmothers were in charge of keeping the house clean. It was a full-time job to keep a house immaculate. Statistically it took about 40 hours of general housework, plus 15 to 20 hours of deep cleaning, adding up to nearly 60 hours. Today, on average we spend just 1 to 2 hours per week on housework. That does not include shopping and cooking.
Mom and yes, even Grandma is working outside the home at a full-time job. When it comes to which room we clean the most, we clean the kitchen (47%), followed by the great room (25%) We don’t even put that much time into our bedrooms. Prescott Maid to Order knows that your home needs more cleaning attention than that.
If we’re only spending 1 to 2 hours a week cleaning, then why would we need a cleaning service? Isn’t there enough time to take care of these things on the weekend? We might think that there is, but we’re in a busy time of year. Now that the kids are back in school, there are countless games, practices, plays, music recitals, and so on. Prescott has a festival nearly every weekend and we don’t want to miss out.
This is where it’s okay to ask for help. Each household requires a dual income. That comes from both need and desire for two careers. Combine that with the rest of our busy schedules, and soon the house gets a little untidy. That means that the rooms in your house other than the kitchen and great room shouldn’t be ignored.
