Cleaning can be a total pain. We’re all so busy, and it’s an easy thing to brush to the side when you just don’t seem to have time. There are tons of reasons, however, to not let this happen and to make sure that you have a clean house 24/7. You may have to make the time, or alternatively, you could hire a cleaner or a cleaning crew to come by once a week and pick up for you.
Here are the top three reasons you should always have a clean home:
1. You’ll be happier!
You may try to ignore it, but face it, we all get really annoyed when we’re stuck in a dirty house with no time to clean it up. It stresses us out when we have to keep pushing these tasks to the side! Always having a clean house will keep you in a more positive state of mind.
2. You’ll be more focused
Clutter in your house means clutter in your head. Psychologically, noticing disorder all around you will lead your mind to become disorganized as well. When nothing is in place, you will have a hard time ordering your thoughts and managing your work. It’s much like having an office with papers strewn all over the place. You never know where anything is, and you’re always fumbling around to look for the things you need. It’s simply inefficient to live this way.
3. You’ll be healthier
There is no doubt that keeping your house clean will keep the bacterial levels down and keep your family healthier. Particularly in the bathroom and kitchen bacteria has a chance to breed and get into all your things, and your body too. You’ll want to do a thorough cleaning job, because it’s the little crevices that these little bugs love the most.

Oftentimes, we don’t think about how messy certain areas and objects in our homes can get. We tend to go through our normal cleaning routine, but many of us miss the same problematic areas and end up with battery-infested, disgusting areas. This can become a health hazard if it isn’t well-considered.
We’re going to list the top five dirtiest areas of your house so you can be mindful the next time you or a professional cleaning crew are cleaning your home.
#1: The Kitchen
This is pretty gross. We eat the food that comes from our kitchen, and when we do this, we eat food that’s coming from the dirtiest place in the house. In most cases, kitchens are much dirtier than bathrooms, believe it or not.
Things like dish towels and sponges are an especially bad haven for bacteria, as they become moist and grow molds and bacteria easily.
In addition, we rarely think about things like faucets, cabinet and drawer handles, refrigerator and microwave doors, and other commonly touched parts of the room.
Think about this next time you’re preparing a meal, and consider getting a good cleaning job done!
#2: Switches, door handles, door knobs
It seems obvious when you think about it, but when’s the last time you went through the house wiping down these commonly touched areas? Particularly bad are knobs in bathrooms and from the indoors to the outdoors.
A disinfecting wipe down once a week should do the trick to take care of this problem.
#3 Make-up bag and brushes
Did you know makeup grows bacteria after some time? We often reuse the same makeup brushes over and over again and never give them a good wipe down. This is pretty gross, seeing as we’re rubbing these brushes over our face every day.
Buy a nice make-up brush cleaner and take care of this problem in a breeze! It doesn’t take long, and it’s much better for your health, and your skin!

You may have mulled over the thought of hiring a professional cleaner or team of cleaners to deal with your home or residence when you can’t. It can be a hard decision to make, especially because it’s tempting to think that professional cleaners really don’t know any more than you do about how to make your space look at its best.
For casual cleaning needs, perhaps you can do enough. However, for those with a busy lifestyle or a business to keep up with, having professionals on the job is a huge advantage. A business should always be presented at its best and “dressed to impress” customers. It can be hard to maintain this when you’re busy managing all the other aspects of the company.
For those with a busy lifestyle, it may be impossible to keep up with your cleaning chores. They tend to be a constant source of strain and stress, and may even hinder you in accomplishing your goals. A professional team is simply a weight off your shoulders and one less thing you have to worry about in your hectic life.
There are a number of other advantages to having a cleaning crew. For one, professional cleaners know the product to use in tough to clean spots. Certain surfaces could be damaged by certain chemicals, stains may not budge when using one product but may come out in a breeze with another product, and you may not know certain hazards associated with certain chemicals.
Professional cleaners are educated in all of these areas and are able to make more informed decisions about techniques, products and more. This coupled with the fact that they provide a no-stress way to enjoy a sparkly space gives a pretty good argument for hiring a professional for your next cleaning job.

When it comes to important meetings and prospective clienteles, it’s important to get the entire meeting process done right, from the moment they walk into the door to the handshake as they’re getting ready to leave.
Imagine walking into the office of a potential business partner or someone you plan to buy services from, and seeing a dirty floor, dead bugs in the windowsill, smelling a musty smell or seeing papers lying around. What would be your first thought?
Easy, “this person can’t keep themselves together enough to stay clean, how can they handle my business?”.
Convincing a client to purchase your services involves more than just having a good reputation and good conversational skills. Everything about your business meeting will send a message, and a huge chunk of that message is the setting in which you do your business.
Not only is your office or meeting room the first thing a person sees when they walk in, it also sets the tone for the rest of the meeting. If objects are out of place and it’s clear someone needs to do a cleaning job, immediately you set your client up with low expectations of you.
The truth is, it’s important to have a spotless, tidy office building with nothing out of place in any room. And we all know how impossible that is to achieve. When you are busy doing business all day, things pile up and the task of cleaning becomes more and more daunting, and more necessary.
A cleaning crew is an important investment for the office. They’re affordable, and they give you a value beyond their cost. They make your office environment pleasing, professional, impressive, personable and comfortable for you, your employees, and your potential clients.
Cleanliness pays off, and A1 Cleaning San Jose wants to provide that value for you. Give us a call if you don’t already have a cleaning crew of your own and we’ll be happy to set you up with a personalized quote for our services.
