Chicago House Cleaning Services for Seniors?
While there are a number of reasons as to why people hire a maid service in Chicago, a lack of mobility is one of the most popular. Many times people, especially senior citizens, have problems cleaning their homes due to the inability to maneuver vacuums and other tools or because they cannot stand for the period of time that is required to wash a counter or a sink.
Cleaning is a very physical task. People who clean their own homes regularly and maids are already aware of the motions involved in getting a home spic and span.
Dangers Of Cleaning
– Bending over and crouching to clean a bathtub or toilet. It can be tricky to get to these areas, along with those like them, due to the movements required to reach each part of them. In some cases, there are handled brushes and other things that can be used, but they can be tough to maneuver for those with arthritis and other common ailments.
– Standing up in order to wipe down counters and tables. Some cleaning tasks require you to be on your feet for long periods of time. While standing in one place, like when you’re wiping down a section of a counter or part of a table, may be easier for seniors, standing still for a long period of time can be tough to do.
– Constant movements required for dusting and straightening up. This requires the ability to move around on your feet. If you are unstable and have a hard time with this, you will not be cleaning your house properly, not to mention the fact that you could fall and hurt yourself during the process.
– Remembering what you cleaned. Many maid services in Chicago instill a system in their technicians. This means that the technicians are trained to tackle certain parts of a home, room or area first, and then move on the next step. This is done to ensure that nothing gets forgotten. However, some senior citizens have memory issues, and this can lead to cleaning the same part of the home or room over and over, and not moving on the next step. As you can imagine, this can lead to a number of problems, the least of which is an improperly cleaned house.
All of these are reasons as to why senior citizens, as well as those of any age with mobility problems, should hire a professional. The job will be done by an experienced cleaning technician, leaving the house clean and free of hazards.
Here at Fresh Tech Maid, we have a number of clients who have hired us to clean the homes of their elderly loved ones. One such client testimonial is included below:
Thank you Fresh Tech Maid for taking care of my mom. I live far away and had to find a reliable service to clean for my mom on a weekly basis. I was so fortunate to find Fresh Tech Maid.
I was pleasantly surprised to find that Fresh Tech Maid has won so many awards, such as Best Pick from Best Pick Report, Seal of Excellence from Association of Residential Cleaning Services International, and has an A rating from the BBB. To me, the most important thing is that the company and its staff must be trustworthy, I do not want my 90-year-old mother to be taken advantage of.
I was impressed by how well you worked to coordinate with me to take care of my mother. You not only cleaned well for my mom, but also updated me frequently on the progress. Last time, the cleaning technician observed my mother was not looking normal and I got a call. I really appreciate such courtesy. Very impressive. I felt so relieved because of the help provided by Fresh Tech Maid.”
