Just Pristine Cleaning Services

For those of us living with a chronic illness, managing to do everything we need to do every day can be tough. Whether it’s working full-time, looking after the kids, running errands, food shopping, cleaning – or all of the above! – chronic illnesses can make everyday life even more difficult to deal with.

I battled the idea of hiring a cleaner for a long time. I’m still able to do these things, I argued with myself, ignoring the muscle spasms in my back from cleaning the toilet. I’m not completely disabled, I said, pushing away the fatigue after dusting the house. While it’s important to do what you can, it’s also important to not overdo it.

For those of us with Fibromyalgia, we know that a flare can come in a flash, and last weeks, leaving you unable to do even the simplest of tasks. But so many of us struggle when it comes to asking for help. We often seek help when it comes to traditionally “male” jobs – if your car breaks down, nobody expects you to fix it yourself. But when it comes to traditionally “female” jobs – cleaning, childcare – you are expected to be able to fit it in. When they say women can have it all, what they really mean is, women are expected to do it all. While my partner does his fair share, he works in London, and is out of the house 12 hours a day, making it difficult for him to find time to do what needs to be done. Between us, we can manage, but, during particularly busy times, or during a flare, it really helps to have some help!

Whether you need a big spring clean, or an extra pair of hands at the end of a tenancy, or just a bit of help every week, there’s nothing shameful in hiring someone to give you a hand.

Just Pristine Cleaning Services are based in Hatfield, Hertfordshire, but they travel within a fairly wide radius. Always on time and polite, they get the job done with efficiency and tact.

  1. “We often seek help when it comes to traditionally “male” jobs – if your car breaks down, nobody expects you to fix it yourself. But when it comes to traditionally “female” jobs – cleaning, childcare – you are expected to be able to fit it in.”

    That is really true and I hadn’t thought about it like that.

    1. It’s something that was pointed out to me a few months ago. Why do we feel ashamed when we don’t find time to push the hoover around, or embarrassed when we pay someone to do it for us.
