This June will be our “New House” one year anniversary. Crazy, right? Having moved into our house in the Summer, this is officially our first Spring here. With Spring comes flowers, showers, my birthday, and good ol’ Spring cleaning! I can honestly say I have never followed the Spring cleaning checklist. I decided this year would be different.
It’s so funny how my view towards my living space has changed since I became a homeowner. I take so much more pride in what my home looks like. I mean, it is the biggest purchase Mike and I have ever made. We really should be treating it like a museum. The first stop in making our house a happy home was to make sure it was clean, Spring clean!
To help with the overall cleaning process, I enlisted a little help from HOMEJOY If you are not familiar with HOMEJOY, they are a website platform that connects clients with cleaning professional in their area. At HOMEJOY, every cleaning professional is screened, background checked, and must maintain stellar ongoing customer reviews. This is HUGE, especially since you are welcoming this person into your home.
To book my Spring Cleaning, I went to HOMEJOY’s website, entered my personal info along with my zip code so they could provide me with a cleaning professional in my area. When booking an appointment, you fill out how many rooms you are having cleaned and can add any extras like laundry and having your fridge and oven cleaned.
I was having a little bit of difficulty finding a cleaning professional in my area (I blame my new neighborhood. It’s not as popular as Bucktown!). When I notified HOMEJOY of my difficulty finding an available cleaning professional in my neighborhood, they were super quick to respond and got my appointment booked right away. You can also book an appointment, view your preferences, and cancel an appointment via their mobile app, which is perfect if you are on the go!
What’s great about HOMEJOY’s online platform is you can pick the same cleaning professional, or build-up a favorites list of cleaning professionals you really like. You can also specify cleaning requests such as only non-toxic cleaning products be used so you and your family members are not exposed to harsh chemicals. All of this info is saved in your profile!
The day of my cleaning, I received a few text messages to my cell phone: one was a reminder that my appointment was at 1:00, another one was to notify me that my cleaning professional was on her way, and the third was a notification that my cleaning professional had started cleaning. Talk about being kept in the loop! ;) Edyta was my cleaning professional. She arrived on-time, was very friendly, and did an amazing job cleaning our house. Even Mike commented on how nice the house smelled. He normally doesn’t notice things like that, so for him to notice, you know the house smelled damn good! When Edyta was finished cleaning our bathrooms, she neatly folded our toilet paper and added a cute little HOMEJOY sticker. It felt like a hotel bathroom!
Even though I needed assistance with my booking, my overall experience with HOMEJOY was a great one. I have to say, my first Spring cleaning experience was great, especially since I had help. Now it’s your turn to get your home nice and Springy cleaned by a HOMEJOY cleaning professional! If you want to make your house smile, click on this link www.homejoy.com/happines
