The soap scum in your shower is so thick you can write your name in it. And you’re in-laws are on their way for the weekly visit. Oh Oh.
You might be one of the nearly 10 million in the UK each year who decide to pay professionals to clean their homes. Although homes with children under age 18 may need the most cleaning help, the people most likely to hire such help are aged 45+. Here’s how to hire the right role for the right job.

If you’re looking for a house cleaning service, there are two basic routes to take: hire a housekeeper, or hire a professional cleaning service like D & A Lawrence Ltd. There are a number of factors to consider – cost, reliability, frequency of use, convenience, and the type of cleaning to be done.
The cost of hiring a cleaning person, or housekeeper can vary. In addition to cleaning, housekeepers will often perform more intimate tasks, such as babysitting, folding and putting away laundry, and picking up clutter. If you need this kind of flexibility and personal service, hiring a housekeeper is a good solution.
Professional cleaning services like those provided by D & A Lawrence Ltd descend on a home with one or more cleaners and whip the place into shape. They are usually hired to do a predetermined, standardised cleaning and are in and out of your home in a very short amount of time. Because their services are strictly cleaning, you’ll need to pick up and have things out of the way when professional cleaning services come. If you don’t need regular help but have a special event coming up, such as a party, or if you want to get your spring cleaning out of the way, professional services are a good choice. When you hire a professional house cleaner, be sure that you both understand that their services that will be provided – what is going to be cleaned, how long it will take, how much it will cost, how frequently it will be done.
