We received an entire home cleaning in exchange for this conversation. Opinions are my own.

I hate cleaning house. This is no secret. I'm also really bad at housekeeping. Besides working two jobs and wanting to spend time with my kids, house cleaning always takes a backseat.

Cardinal Maids came to my rescue!

When my kids catch me cleaning, they know company is coming over. 

And, I usually take a day off work to clean when there is no one around.

Part of the reason I host a cookie party during the holidays is to get my ass in gear to clean the house.


This year was going to be no different. I took off Friday to bake cookies and clean in time for the party on Saturday. However, this year was different, I was offered two-hours with two house cleaners from Cardinal Maids and I said, "Can you come on Friday?"

I've never used a cleaning service. 

I think about it every time I invite people over, but I've chickened out.

The cost is always a big factor. And this crazy idea I would need to clean first so it would not be so bad when the people who are professionals come over to clean. Or, I would need to go buy better cleaning supplies for some reason.

I overthink it so much, it's too late and I'm cleaning my house until two in the morning.

Cardinal Maids

Booking the appointment with Cardinal Maids was so easy! With just a few clicks and basic information, I had scheduled a team to come to my house and clean.

Flat fees mean that there are no surprises! You won't be charged for services you didn't already pay for when you booked your cleaning team. And, the cleaning teams have had background checks. They have thought of everything so you don't have to!

Once my appointment was booked, I was sent an email confirmation and a text reminder the day before they were scheduled. Since I wasn't given a window of time, as I've heard other services do, I knew exactly when they would arrive with their cleaning supplies.

I met the ladies at my home and showed them around. Not having hired a service before, I wasn't sure what to tell them I needed to be done but they walked me through what they do and prompted me for information they needed. It came down to doing as much as they could in the downstairs and the bathroom in the time that they were there.

Floors were swept and mopped, area carpets vacuumed, counters cleaned, and nooks dusted. I came home after the two-hours to a clean house that smelled clean!

The Gift of Time

While the Cardinal Maids team was cleaning, I ran to three stores and the bank. I didn't feel rushed. I got shit done. When they were done, they called me before the time was up so I could look over our home. But, my husband was there and he had already let me know that he forgot how clean our house could get. We both take responsibility for the house duties so this was not a dig.

Because I didn't have to worry about cleaning and the shopping was done, when it came time to make cookies I was humming Christmas carols and feeling prepared. I felt so prepared, I even had time to do the little extras that I run out of time to do.

Final Thoughts on Cardinal Maids

While this was a collaboration and I received my services for free, if I had paid, worth every penny. While I could not see an option to tip, we did tip in cash.

The time I got back was priceless. I wasn't stressed going into the weekend and the extra time I had to spend with the kids was wonderful. I highly recommend giving the gift of Cardinal Maids.
