If you are one of those people skeptic about getting a professional service then you might have come up of a list of reasons why you shouldn't. Your main reason must be financial or maybe you just want to clean your house by yourself.
Here are some good and valid reasons why you should get one!
1. You are a busy person
You have a full time work which leaves you exhausted afterwards. Why not come home to a tidy and holistic home worry free from cleaning related chores. Coming home to a clean home can relieve some of your stress. Work and life balance is also a very important aspect of life and I believe in the saying that "Time is GOLD!". You can spend more time with your loved ones or carry on with other activities that you enjoy.
2. You hate cleaning or you don't know how to clean
Cleaning is not an easy thing to do. There are methods and processes involved to have a good clean home. That is why professional cleaners have training/courses and they also have years of experience doing the job. Professionals also have the correct cleaning solutions and equipment to maintain your property.
3. You get some money back!
In Finland, you get tax deductions related to household services. The tax credit for household expenses reduces the amount of tax you have to pay. You can claim the credit if you pay for work to be done in your home, such as cleaning, child care, renovation, or computer installation. You can also claim the credit for work done at a holiday home that you own.
The maximum credit for household expenses that you can claim is €3,500 per person. The credit threshold per person is €100, which you have to pay yourself.
Credit is only granted for the part of the total expense that was paid for work. You can claim credit for 60% of the amount that you have paid a company for their work.
