Where the World Gathers to Celebrate Every Day


National Professional House Cleaners Day - September 17


National Professional House Cleaners Day on September 17th recognizes Professional Cleaners for the necessary and skillful trade they provide every day. In homes and businesses across the country, Professional Cleaners create healthier environments.

This day of recognition celebrates a career that many overlook or take for granted. While not everyone hires a Professional Cleaner, they do impact our lives in some way. Nearly every business we frequent and apartment building that is rented utilizes professional cleaners. The industry employs approximately 3.25 million people creating a positive economic impact on the marketplace.

Benefits of Hiring Professional Cleaners

Besides cleaning homes and businesses, Professional House Cleaners offer so much more. Some of the benefits include:

  • Improved air quality – Regular professional cleaning reduces the build-up of dust. In older homes, exposure to allergins, lead and asbestos fibers increases. A regular schedule of professional cleanings removes those contaminants from the air.
  • Longevity – Regular care of furniture, drapes, floors and homes extends their life. Over time, items look newer longer and need replacing less often. These savings add up.
  • Time – Profession Cleaners free up time for family, friends and the essential things of life.
  • Health – A sanitary cleaning in places like the kitchen and bathroom is essential. Not only do Professional Cleaners know how to achieve a hygienic clean, but they also use the right tools for the job.
  • Relaxation – Psychologically, coming home to a clean house enables us to relax because we don’t face clutter and everything is in its place.

Exceptionally Skilled

National Professional House Cleaners Day also praises the skills and knowledge of the people. Those in the industry have a passion for perfection, and here’s why:

  • Detail-oriented/well organized – A Professional Cleaner’s eye for detail and organizational skills make them ideal for this career. Their no-nonsense approach and thoroughness leave behind satisfied customers.
  • Experts – Professional Cleaners are experts when it comes to protecting, cleaning, and restoring fabrics and surfaces. Not only that, but they’re also the experts when it comes to protecting you and their employees. Doing the job right without injury to an employee and maintaining a safe home is essential.
  • Leading the way – Many Professional Cleaners run their businesses. They employ specialists, balance products, schedules and training. These business owners set a standard for their employees, who in turn become leaders too.
  • Efficient – When it comes to getting a job done right quickly, Professional Cleaners are masters of efficiency. Not only do they know the most effective ways to get a home or business clean, but also the most cost-effective and healthiest ways too. This makes them a business you can trust.

According to the United States Department of Commerce, in the next few years, 8 out of every 10 dual-income households will invest in a form of house cleaning services. This day presents an excellent opportunity to acknowledge the stellar services and value Professional Cleaners provide.
