"We finally have more time for each other!"
Nicole and Martin from Zurich found the perfect cleaner for their home through Homeservice24 and are happy about the help in their stressful everyday family life.
Nicole and Martin have found cleaning help on Homeservice24 to relieve them in their stressful everyday family life.
What motivated you to look for a domestic helper?
Nicole: Since our son Sven started daycare, I have been working full time again. So far, I have done the housework at weekends and in between. In the long run, however, this is very stressful in addition to work and family. That's why we needed the help of a cleaner.
Did you have any doubts about whether a domestic helper was really the right thing for you?
Martin: Of course, after all, a complete stranger is coming into our house. That's why we concentrated our search on offers with positive evaluations and references. In addition, after an initial phone call, we always talked to the applicants in person to get a reliable impression of them.
“We posted a job offer and the next day we already had 11 applications.”
How did the search go for you?
Martin: First we asked around among our friends for recommendations. But it turned out that many of them were either looking for a cleaning lady themselves or had had rather bad experiences.
Nicole: That's why we started an online search. What we liked about Homeservice24 was that we could see in advance which domestic helpers were in our area and whether they would potentially suit us.
One of the great advantages of having a permanent cleaner for us: at some point, she simply knows what belongs where and can can take over more and more of our tasks.
Did you hire your domestic helper?
Martin: To be honest, we weren't quite sure whether the effort was really worth it in the end. The accident insurance was the deciding factor - we didn't want to be liable in any case if something happened to our domestic help here. The risk was simply too great for us.
Nicole: And that's why we hired her. In the end, it was much easier than we thought. With the service from Fairboss.ch, the whole thing was done quickly.
How do you prepare the flat?
Nicole: In the beginning, I still cleared the surfaces and the floor the night before - for example, of toys that our son likes to spread all over the flat. But by now, our housekeeper knows our house so well that I don't have to do the prep work. That is also one of the great advantages of having a permanent cleaner for us: at some point, she simply knows what belongs where. So over time she can take over more and more of our tasks.
Our flat is clean and tidy and we no longer have to worry about cleaning the flat every week.
And how did you find your domestic help then?
Nicole: Well, actually she found us! We posted a job offer and the next day we already had 11 applications. We chose the three best and after an interview and a trial job, we decided on our current cleaning woman.
How has your lifestyle changed since you got a housekeeper?
Martin: Our flat is clean and tidy and we no longer have to worry about cleaning the flat every week. We finally have more time for each other and can plan our weekends much more freely. This has brought so much more peace and time together into our lives. We definitely don't want to miss our domestic helper any more!
