6 out of 10 housewives would hire a cleaner

A recent study has shown that 6 out of 10 women would hire a cleaner if they could afford it. National Statistics show that women spend twice as much time as men doing the household chores and a recent survey revealed that women spend nearly 6 years of their life cleaning.

The average woman will spend 16.45 hours per week looking after their home and ensuring that it is clean and tidy. Cleaning the kitchen and doing the dishes is considered the most time consuming task, calculated as taking 140 minutes each week to do, followed by washing and ironing tasks.

Over half of those surveyed revealed that excessive cleaning makes them angry. There are now over 12.5 million working woman in the UK who not only hold down a full time job but also take care of the house and clean and tidy every week. So is it any wonder that most of them are stressed and frustrated and having to carry out all the menial tasks at the end of a long working day.

The cost of hiring a cleaner may be considered expensive but how many out of the 6/10 would realise how much of their time is being taken up and turn that into a cost. Now turn that cost into time that is able to be spent with their partner or children and it suddenly becomes good value.

There are loads of companies in the UK who specialise in cleaning and who have the necessary equipment and tools to take on all those stubborn marks and stains and leave our woman free to enjoy their down time and relax.
