Did you know on average a Singaporean needs to spend approximately 12 hours a week doing house cleaning?
Your space is getting smaller…. Singapore, we grew up in a time when we had maids and domestic housekeepers, ah life was so comfortable. The sizes of homes in urban cities are rapidly shrinking. What used to be 1200 sqft apartment in the 1980s fast forward 2020 is a measly 800 sqft apartment on average. What this means is that while you may previously have had room to house a domestic worker, a full-time maid or a part-time maid, you no longer have the room and space to do so soon, or even now.
Outsourcing your home cleaning needs to a part time maid or part time helper is the sure-fire way to help you save on residential save
It costs more to hire domestic workers and maids…. we literally mean it just costs so much more. Think about it… maid levy, insurance, first time training fees, visas, off days and this all amounts to a whopping $1,000 monthly. That literally an additional mouth to feed. Between us that money is better off being saved. With the sizes of apartments today, spending $1000 monthly of house cleaning is an overkill.
So why not get a part time maid or part time helper to deal with the house keeping without the additional cost of maintaining one.
Did I forget to mention Privacy?
As society develops, we also want more family privacy, especially you cute couples. Keeping a maid or a domestic housekeeper takes that privacy away. Some of us would like to live away from our parents. Why should domestic workers and maids be any exception?
Outsourcing your house cleaning services to part time maids and part time helpers means you get all the privacy and the extra space for your new-born (or that cute cat and dog you always wanted)
Competence v Competence
We’ve seen it, the news of Singaporeans tearing domestic workers apart. Maybe it’s the English, maybe it’s the personality, maybe it’s also the risk you take for hiring a stranger for the next 2-3 years who knows her life is sorted just by living under your roof. Also do you know why you need to spend on introductory training for her. It’s because she needs those skills.
With part time maids and part time helpers, you don’t get that issue. Since they are not on contract, every cleaning job matters to them, otherwise they won’t get the next job. Platforms like us ex-communicate part time maids and helpers if they constantly underperform and for many of them, the platform is their livelihood, so you can be sure they will put in extra efforts to do a good job.
That’s right Singapore, being efficient means getting to do the things you want to, when you want to, like going to the movies, doing business or making revenue. Why spend life on things that you don’t wish to, like house cleaning?
Leave your house chores to part time maids and part time helpers to save more time for yourself and to stop spending life on chores.
