Last spring my husband bought me a Groupon for three hours of cleaning! I have never had anyone clean my home before. How exciting!!! I was waiting for the perfect time to take advantage of this gift. Well, the past few weeks have been extremely busy (part of my absence from blogging), my parents were visiting for five days, parent teacher conferences (my husband and I both teach), countless meetings for committees and volunteer responsibilities that we are apart of, etc. I know many of you can understand!!!! So, I figured this would be a great time to use up this Groupon. I had no idea what to expect.
When I first called to set up the appointment, I was asked, "What are your priorities for things to get cleaned?" I was thinking - my entire home! Well, I knew that wasn't going to happen, so I blurted out "the bathrooms and the hardwood floors". Now, keep in mind, I do a fairly good job at keeping the clutter organized, but deep cleaning is another story!
Here is what I learned from the experience:
1. Walking into the home that smells clean can do wonders for you!
2. Polishing the chrome surfaces so they shine will brighten your day!
3. Enjoy the moment or hours of a clean home, it will not last!
4. Given the chance, I would do it again!
By the way, I'm not posting any pictures, because the house has reached the point of "it will not last"!
Would you or do you use a cleaning service? What would be your cleaning priorities?
