Did You Know – 1 in 3 Households Now Hires a Cleaner ?
Twice as many people under 35 today hire a cleaner than previously. Gone are the days when home-help is exclusively for the wealthy and affluent sections of our society.
The Daily Mail reports, 1 in 3 households today employs a cleaner, or any other type of home help like cleaners, gardeners or someone to help with the ironing, to help them keep their homes, and / or gardens neat and tidy.

We all live a 24-hour-a-day life these days, just who even has got the time and energy to scrub the shower and dust for cobwebs these days? Not to mention the time consuming and laborious task of wiping down skirting boards and paintwork on a regular basis, together with the many other regular cleaning tasks around the home?
We live in an age where it seems there is never enough time, so much to do and so little time to fit it all in. This busy generation together with others who just who value their time, would prefer to make use of their downtime time for enjoyment, rather than scrubbing. More and more are prepared to pay for anyone to do it for all of them, because they view it as an excellent trade-off of money for time, it is that simple.
