Whether you've invited a few neighbors over for snacks and sports or many of your family and friends over for a big dinner, you're going to want a clean house. With so many other things already on your plate, getting the house ready for company can seem like a huge chore.

Cleaning is a big job, especially if you're going to be doing a lot of focused spring cleaning. You'll need help! You can call maid services to give you a head start, and you can also get your children involved. Sure, chances are if you ask your kids if they want to help clean, they're going to say no.

You can combat that by making it tailored to them. Break the tasks into things they can handle by themselves—it will make them feel more independent—and find ways to make it entertaining. You can do this by playing music, racing the clock, or turning it into a game.

Busy schedule? Young children? Whatever the cause, your day is already packed with stuff. How frustrating is it to look around the house and see clutter? Maid services help with the cleaning, but they aren't there to tackle daily tidying, so there must be a way to get it done quickly and easily.
