Maybe It’s Not A Luxury, But A Necessity?
Do our students really need a maid? I never thought I would be saying this but sometimes hiring a cleaning service for your student’s dorm or apartment is not a bad idea. When my oldest son was in college, he lived in an apartment conveniently located on fraternity row. The first time I went into his apartment I could not believe that he lived like that. First off, if your child is in an apartment and a roommate comes down with the flu or something else contagious, having a one-time cleaning to disinfect everything is not a bad idea. For some reason, germs spread like wildfire around college kids. This could help keep everything from spreading. The only other reason would be having a clean of an apartment to avoid a charge when moving out. Let’s face it, kids get lazy towards the end of a semester, and frankly, they may not have a lot of time to clean either. They will be swamped with studying for finals, writing papers, attending the end of year events, and packing.
Now granted when my children are home their rooms are disaster areas, however, they are clean and I can shut the door. Seeing my son’s apartment rather shocked me. My younger son and his three roommates shared the cost of a cleaning person that comes once a month. It costs them $15 each and for them, it is well worth it.
