Carmen’s Cleaning | Home Organization and Cleaning
Is the thought of cleaning out your closet overwhelming? Can’t remember the last time you could actually park a car in your garage? Looking around your teenager’s bedroom and wondering why you are still seeing toys from their toddler years? You are not alone. Home organization is a major challenge for many families. While keeping a home clean may be manageable, deep cleaning and organizing tasks, once called spring cleaning by our parents and grandparents, has become a chore that many of us put off, rather than a yearly ritual. The result can be closets full of clothes we no longer wear, garages full of junk, and bedrooms full of things we never use.
Clutter is stressful. There have actually been a number of studies demonstrating that having a cluttered home takes a toll on someone’s emotional well-being. While that does not mean that people can or should take their decluttering efforts to the extreme, it does mean that decluttering and organizing a home can have some surprising emotional benefits. Clutter impacts your ability to use your living space in several ways: it can be embarrassing, making people avoid guests; it can make it difficult to engage in hobbies in your home; and it makes relaxation more difficult because it serves as a constant reminder of the work that needs to be done. It also takes a toll on self-esteem. Society embraces the idea that clean is morally better than dirty, so that people who struggle with cleanliness and tidiness often feel like they are somehow inadequate, which can make people reluctant to hire people to help them with those chores.
We are here to tell you that is ridiculous! People are great at different things and it is okay if you do not happen to be great at organizing or if you would just rather spend your time doing other things. At Carmen’s Cleaning Services, we happen to be great at cleaning and organization. Instead of stressing out about how you can make yourself an organizational wizard, spend your time doing something you enjoy and hire our organizational wizards, instead. After making sure that we understand the goals of your cleaning and organizational project, we will assess the available space, declutter, and organize your remaining things to optimize the space that you have and help you maximize the usefulness and the joy you get from your home.
