Everyday life is all hustle and bustle, and between work, family, and making time for hobbies and relaxation, we simply don’t have enough hours in the day to keep the house tidy day-to-day.

Luckily, there is a solution: hiring a housekeeper. If you’re not convinced, we’ve outlined six signs that a housekeeper is the missing piece of your daily puzzle! Read on to discover more...

Signs that hiring a housekeeper is right for you:

1 - You're running out of time and the laundry pile is growing.

If the mountain of dirty laundry means you are putting an unwashed uniform on the kids for the second time this week, or you can write on the thick layer of dust on the bedroom sides can be, it may be time to hire a housekeeper.

We all like a checklist and if your list is long but the ticks are not appearing, it will affect other areas of your life. You won’t have to worry about if the kids’ bags are not packed in the mornings and if you’ll have to rush out of the door on time with wet hair – a capable housekeeper will have it all in hand.

2 - You're going to bed later and later.

Adults need at least seven hours of sleep every night, and making sure you get enough sleep is crucial to a healthy lifestyle. However, many of us are skipping our bedtime routine to put on an extra wash load or load the dishwasher.

Sure, there are nights when this can’t be helped but if it is happening frequently, it might be time to outsource some jobs on your to-do list. Just think of all the books you could read before bed if you had the right person doing the cleaning and laundry!

3 - You have a newborn

Time is precious when you have a new baby. Although you might want to be doing everything yourself, sometimes it’s just not possible.

If you are struggling with the night feeding and struggling to get enough sleep, having a helping hand to do the cooking, cleaning, and change bedding can be a lifeline. Feeling stressed and tired is not good for you or your baby, so a few hours of housekeeping support each day can make a happier home.

4 - You are missing out on hobbies or projects.

We all know that when we are busy, we often end up sacrificing time for ourselves. If your household to-do list leaves you with no time for your favourite hobbies such as walking, gardening, or crafts, then hiring a housekeeper could help.

De-cluttering can make you feel more creative and positive. You can’t get back the hours you miss doing the fun stuff, but you can hire a housekeeper to do the domestic jobs to free up some time just for you.

5 - Missing out on family time.

Have you noticed you’re struggling to find the time to watch the children play sport at the weekend or sit with them for an hour and read? Do you feel like you are always struggling to find the time to call your loved ones and family members?

Finding a housekeeper to help at home with the laundry and ironing allows you to take that extra call or spend quality time doing something special with you your family, without the worries of dirty dishes and unwashed uniforms hanging over your head.

6 - You're recovering from illness or injury

Cleaning can be physically demanding, especially if you’re recovering from a bout of illness or a nasty injury.

Lots of our clients need some support during this challenging time. It can be for 6 weeks or 6 months but having a housekeeper to cook, clean, and run errands can help speed up your recovery and take repetitive tasks off your plate.
