Too Busy to Clean? Why More Millennials Are Hiring Maids

Do you currently use a maid service to clean your home or apartment?

If so, you’re not alone, especially if you’re in the millennial age bracket. Maid services once seemed unnecessary or a luxury only the ultra-rich could justify. But there’s a new generation that’s bringing back maid services, even as technology is giving us robot vacuum cleaners and automatic cleaning supply delivery.

This generation is the Millennials or those born from the 80s to mid-90s. Keep reading to learn more about why Millenials are hiring maids and how a maid service can help you.

Why Millennials Are Hiring Maids

Millennials are hiring maids in record numbers, especially those in large urban areas like Washington, D.C. DC maid services are taking off because the area is home to a lot of busy millennials that work long hours to pay expensive rents.

Millennials face a unique financial situation and many of them have over-loaded schedules, side hustles and multiple jobs to make ends meet. If they can take one more thing off of their to-do list (such as cleaning), they’re willing to fit it into their budgets.

A maid service offers more than just a clean apartment. Cleaning services give millennials more free time and a better work/life balance. That’s probably why half of the 25-to-34-year-olds in the U.S. are now hiring cleaners.

Why Having a Maid Service Is Worth the Cost

A lot of millennials are strapped for cash, but they still deem cleaning services as worthy of the cost. There are a lot of benefits to having someone else come and clean your place, even if it’s just once a month or less.

Here are three reasons why you should consider hiring a maid service if you’re a busy millennial who doesn’t have one already:

1. You’ll Live Healthier

Dust, dirt and even mold can accumulate in your home if you don’t clean it regularly, combined with once-in-a-while deep cleans. These things are all harmful to your health. You can hire a cleaning service to come in and clean the hard-to-reach areas where bad stuff can accumulate, such as air ducts, refrigerators, tile grout and more.

2. You’ll Be Less Stressed

Cleaning is stressful and so is coming home to a messy apartment every night. If you hire a cleaning service, you’ll be able to relax at night and on the weekends without the stress of thinking you should be cleaning.

3. You’ll Be More Productive

Productivity is a valuable resource for millennials. A clean and organized apartment gives you one less thing to worry about, so you can stay focused on work or your many side hustles.
