A St. Louis-Area home cleaning service that saves you time and peace of mind

Hiring a local maid service — one that not only clears your home but your schedule and your distractions — is a true cleaning house company. Why? Because we clean out not only your house, but your schedule and your to-do-list anxiety when you walk into your home at the end of the day. 

You live the scenario: It’s the end of the day. It was a long day. You kind of enjoy the peace and quiet of your commute after work, but that peace and quiet is interrupted with the anxiety that meets you at the front of your building or home and when you walk through the front door. It’s not always a smack-you-in-the-face anxiety. In fact, you’ve kind of gotten used to it — the marks on the wall inside your home, the dirty kitchen counters (the countertop color may hide some of it, but you know it needs to be cleaned), the dust that lies not only on the furniture, but in the spots that aren’t immediately visible. Don’t even get started thinking about the top of the refrigerator and the hard to reach, so I’d rather not try to, blind spots behind the toilet.

Our Local Maid Service can help clear your counters and your calendar

It’s a matter of time and priorities. You have too little of one and too much of the other. When you walk through that door, it is the cleaning to do list that smacks you either in the face or weighs down the back of your mind.

Wouldn’t it be nice to just walk into a clean home, to walk into one less thing to worry about? In an unclean home, it is not just the physical blemishes and obstacles that get in the way of enjoying your evening or getting to your priorities. It is the mental space that these distractions occupy.

As an independently owned and operated company, we have been providing these stress-relieving services to our local maid service customers in the West County and St. Charles area.

Our home cleaning checklist and how we work

You can review our recurring Maintenance Cleaning list below or download a pdf with our cleaning checklist and policies, which is what we clean during each standard visit.

NOTE: For recurring cleanings we start with an initial cleaning, where we spend more time cleaning the highly-used areas of your home (kitchens, bathrooms, bedrooms) and we focus on getting as much dust as possible in high and low areas (like ceiling fans and baseboards). We want to give ourselves enough time to make sure that we create a new base and standard of professionally cleaning for your home. From there, we’ll make sure you’re satisfied with the cleaning and continue on with the Maintenance Cleanings every week, two weeks or four weeks.

Benefits of House Cleaning Services

House cleaning services are a way to free up your day by hiring someone else to do the tedious work for you.

It’s a good idea if you’re busy, too tired, or just don’t want to spend your time doing chores that can be done in a few hours. You’ll save money on supplies and won’t have any messes left over when it’s all said and done. Professional cleaners will also get the job done faster than you are could-saving even more of your precious time!

We’ll explore some of the benefits of hiring a professional house cleaning service so that you can make an informed decision about whether or not it would be right for you.

Save Time

Hiring a house cleaning service can save you time in two different ways. First, your house will be clean in one or two hours when it would take you quite some time to do the job yourself. Second, even if you don’t have more than an hour of cleaning left on your schedule, you can save that hour by hiring a house cleaning service.

The time that you save from not having to do chores can be spent doing things that are more fun, relaxing or important to you!

Save Money

Hiring a professional cleaner only costs a little bit more than if you were going to pick up a bottle of cleaner and a fresh set of rags. By hiring a professional house cleaning service, you’ll also save money on supplies that would otherwise be used to clean your home.

One last way that hiring a house cleaning service will save you money is by speeding up the process-you won’t have to pay for as much time. Professional cleaners are trained to get the job done faster so that you don’t have to pay for more time than is necessary. That’ll save your wallet in an even bigger way!

No More Messes

A house cleaning service will clean up every mess, leaving no room for dust bunnies, food crumbs and sticky spots. No matter how messy your home gets, a house cleaning service can make it spic and span in one or two hours.

Peace of Mind

Paying for a house cleaning service provides you with peace of mind because they’ll know exactly what to do to get your home clean. It’s like having a maid, but you don’t have to pay someone else to do the work for you.

Hiring a professional house cleaning service can give you back your time and get your home spic and span in half the time it would take otherwise. No matter what type of messes or projects there are-big or small-a house cleaning service can get the job done right.

House cleaning services don’t require you to haul your supplies or deal with any messes-they do it all for you and they’ll even leave it better than when they first arrived! Hiring a professional house cleaning service allows you more free time and peace of mind that your home is clean and lovely, just as soon as they’re finished with it.

House Cleaning Tips

House cleaning can be a daunting task, but with a few tips, it can be a little bit easier. Here are some tips to help you get started:

  1. Make a list of the areas of your home that need to be cleaned and then prioritize them.
  2. Start with the easiest areas first and then work your way up to the more difficult ones.
  3. Create a schedule for yourself and try to stick to it as closely as possible.
  4. Divide the tasks into smaller, more manageable ones so that they are easier to complete.
  5. Take breaks when needed and don’t try to do too much at once.
  6. Use cleaning products that are safe for both your family and the environment.
  7. Keep your trash can in a central location so that you are able to throw away things immediately without having to make more than one trip around the room or house.
  8. Get some help from your kids-let them pick up their toys or other items that they leave lying around, which will be much easier than telling them every few minutes to do it!
  9.  If possible, hire a professional cleaning service once in a while to take care of any particularly bothersome messes for you! These tips should help you go about cleaning your home efficiently and effectively so that you can keep living happily with your family in an orderly space. Whether you need deep cleaning services or basic ones, cleaning services are the best option that you have to maintain your home.

As you can see, there are many benefits of hiring a professional house cleaning service, including the fact that you don’t have to spend time on chores, save money on supplies or even pay for one more hour than what is needed. Professional cleaners will also do the work faster than you could ever hope to-saving you even more time!
