A few years ago, my husband and I purchased a second home down south.
Our goal is to enjoy the best of the weather in the north and escape the worst of it.
Because my job is handled entirely online, it’s easy for me to travel between the two homes. I’ve found that the majority of my time is spent in our southern vacation home. I don’t mind the hot and humid summers, and I just love the mild winters. My husband is a grape farmer, which requires him to head north for certain times of year. He needs to trim, fertilize, weed spray and pesticide spray in the spring. There are foliage sprays necessary in the summer and the fall is harvest season. We try not to be apart for more than three weeks straight. After three weeks with me living down south and my husband residing up north, I know that his location is in desperate need of a thorough cleaning. The thought of traveling north and arriving at a dusty, messy home is stressful for me. I don’t want to walk in the door and immediately begin scrubbing toilets, cleaning showers and vacuuming. I already need to get groceries and set up my work station. This last time, I decided to research online and find a professional cleaning company. It was quite simple to contact a cleaning company in the local area and set up an appointment. I chose a general cleaning package that included the bathrooms, vacuuming and dusting. My house up north is a two-story that encompasses over two thousand square feet. I was surprised that the cost of the cleaning was under two hundred dollars.
