The Joy of Cleaning

Hello and welcome to my cleaning blog. Cleaning can bring you a lot of joy. Without it, our homes and businesses would literally be covered in old food, dust, and garbage. My name is Penny, and in this blog, I'm going to cover cleaning techniques and tips for staying organized. Whether you are trying to wash a stain out of a shirt or keep on top of the vacuuming, I hope these posts help. I also plan to write about hiring professional cleaners for your home, office, or even your industrial facility. My hope is that this blog brings you as much joy as a clean space.

Keeping Up With Housework After Maternity Leave Ends

Catherine Edwards

One of the most difficult things for many new mothers is going back to work after maternity leave. Not only is it hard to leave a baby to go to work, but there's also the added challenge of finding the time to keep up with everything around the house while taking care of the baby and everything that needs to be done for your job. Here, you'll find a few tips that can help you to keep up with everything that you would have otherwise had all day to do at home.

Consider Interior Cleaning Services

If you've never hired an interior cleaning service before, you don't know what you're missing. Think about how nice it would be to come home after a long day at work and being greeted by clean smells and shining floors—and it's completely possible.

Lots of people who hire cleaning services have their homes cleaned while they're at work. You may never even see the team that is cleaning your home, but you'll have every opportunity to communicate with the company over the phone—some even have apps for your smartphone to allow you to leave messages for the staff.

If you're concerned about cost, know that you don't have to get a whole-home cleaning each week, or even every other week. To reduce the cost of the service, you can pick and choose the areas of the home that will be cleaned. So, if your formal living room isn't used, don't worry about having it cleaned. Some people opt only to have the kitchen and bathrooms cleaned, leaving the rest of the home to do themselves—it's a great way to get the areas that are most used, and most time consuming to clean done for you.

Decrease the Clutter

The more stuff you have, the longer it will take to get through the cleaning. This doesn't mean that you have to get rid of everything, but you can put some stuff in storage until the baby gets a bit older and your workload decreases a bit. This can also assist you with baby-proofing the home so the baby doesn't get hurt on some things that probably aren't kid-friendly.

Talk with the cleaning services near you. Take your time to discuss your needs, your concerns, and what you hope to get out of the service. In the end, you'll be able to spend the time that you would have spent cleaning having tummy time on your clean living room floor with the baby.
