Why To Hire a Cleaner As a Stay-at-Home Mum

Being a stay at home Mum is a full-time job by itself, and it’s become widely accepted that a parent staying at home has more responsibility and work than their partner who has a 9-5 job!

It can be rather overwhelming for a Mum who is new to the joys of parenthood or having welcomed a new addition to the family to try to be there for their children’s every need, while also trying to juggle the chores and other responsibilities.

Being a parent is the most fulfilling and perhaps unappreciated job, but it can be extremely easy to wear yourself out and be left exhausted if you try and take on too much at once. Being a stay at home Mum leads to the day to day chore list, household responsibilities, and errands being enough to take up all your free time.

As a Stay-at-Home Mum, here are a few reasons why you deserve to hire a house cleaner!


1. Improve Quality Time With Your Kids

Mum look at me, Mummy, Mummy look at me!  Sound familiar?

Kids require attention 24/7, and every moment spent with them should be one to cherish. Unfortunately, many Mums need to compromise on spending quality time with their kids, as they try to juggle household chores which have been nagging in the back of their mind for days! Then factor in when you finally get around to doing chores, being interrupted by cries or calling out for your attention.

This quickly leads to frustration, as you try to give your all to two jobs at once – house cleaner and Mum, quickly leaving you worn out and exhausted, only there is no chance for a break. Well, until now! Fortunately, a reliable and professional cleaning company such as SnapClean can take care of the cleaning, leaving you to make new memories with your child.

2. Take Care of Your Own Needs

Before you can take care of others, you need to first look after yourself. As a stay at home Mum, making sure you have enough sleep and time for yourself is essential for both your mental and physical health. With so much to do, it’s often easy to put off things for yourself while looking after the kids and doing the chores. A professional cleaner can give you a chance to go and treat yourself, or catch up with some friends for a coffee.



3. A Clean Home For Your Sanity (and Your Kid’s Health)

Having a clean home is super important when it comes to babies and young children, especially since they are continually crawling all over the floor, and have a very low immune system leaving them at greater risk of illness and diseases.

Dust, dirt, and even mould can lead to breathing difficulties, skin irritations, rashes, and all other kinds of allergies, which can cause serious long-term health issues.

Regular professional cleaning will ensure that your home is always sanitary and clean to help protect your kids from any illnesses.



4. Eliminate Stress When Unexpected Guests Pop In

After you’ve had a baby or have young kids, it’s more common for guests to come over and see the kids. Everyone from out of town relatives to neighbours and local friends wants to come and see your bundles of joy and make a big fuss!

But, as a stay-at-home Mum what should be an enjoyable chance to catch up with loved ones, can instead be highly stressful!

The guests are on the way, and there are toys, bibs and mess scattered throughout the entire house, with unwashed dishes piled high, and dust everywhere, along with a to-do list which can give you nightmares.

Luckily a professional cleaner can have your home always guest-ready so that you can enjoy your visitors’ company, all while they marvel at how sparkling your house looks!



5. Make Your Life Easier

While using a professional cleaning service may feel like “cheating”, it actually allows you to improve everything in your day to day life. Besides the benefit of a clean home, it also eliminates stress, gives you more energy clarity, and gives you more time to focus on what matters the most – your kids health and yours!
