Best home cleaning services in Berlin
Let’s face it, most of us don’t love cleaning their homes. Even for the few of us who do enjoy tidying up and bringing a messy house into orderly perfection, it’s not always what we want to be doing on our days off. Most people leave the cleaning for Sunday, but how much better would it be to do something you enjoy on a Sunday, like reading a really good book, that you just picked up from a shelf that has no sight of dust on it? Imagine walking into a clean home at the end of the week and enjoying your weekend without having to lift a finger. Sounds like a dream, right? But with the help of a cleaning service this dream will become true.
Let someone do the cleaning for you
Many people still see it as a bit of a taboo to ask someone to clean their house for them. There’s no need to be awkward about it, though. Maybe your job is to sit in an office all day and do stuff on a computer, and someone else’s job is to clean houses. Maybe you suck at cleaning, and would like your place to be nice and habitable. The easiest thing to do is to ask someone to help out, it doesn’t mean you’re lazy and it doesn’t shine a bad light upon you, it just makes sense, not to mention that it makes your life a whole lot easier. You can even go as far as saying that hiring someone to help cleaning your home saves relationships. Yes you know what I’m talking about. You can avoid the whole ‘who cleaned what and when and whose turn is it now’ scenario by hiring someone to lend a hand with the chores.
How to find a cleaner in Berlin
Luckily for us it’s pretty easy to find a cleaner or housekeeper online. There are now websites that specialise in matching your needs with someone else’s skills. Oh what a match made in heaven. If you can’t iron to save your life, stop burning your shirts and ask someone to help you!
One great website that’s really easy to use is Helpling. All you have to do is put in your postcode, select the size of your place, which will suggest how long the cleaning process would last, choose any extras you might need to be done (did you explode some salmon in your oven last time? There you go), give your address and a time that suits you, and that’s it! You don’t even need to be home; just leave your keys with the cleaning lady/gentleman and off you go. Helpling insures the service, in the event that someone breaks your precious paraphernalia (that your girlfriend probably tipped them to “accidentally” smash to pieces).
The costs of such a service vary, depending on the size of your house, how many hours it takes to clean it, how often you want the service done, what exactly you want to include in the process, etc.. Payments are safely made directly on the Helpling website. It’s totally worth every cent, especially if you think about how much you spend on other things – this is one service that will really change your life and improve the quality of your spare time (Refer to note about relationships above). And best of all all cleaners are officially registered and therefore insured if something happens to them while cleaning at your place. Oh and did we mention that in Germany you can deduct the costs for your cleaner from your taxes?
If you don’t believe us, give it a try. You’ll wish you’d started using this website a lot sooner when you see how lovely it feels to get home to a clean place at the end of a hard day at work. If you are curious which other services you can book in Berlin, why don’t you try out a dry cleaning service, which picks up you dirty laundry at home and returns it freshly washed within 24 hours?
