Whenever I’m watching Chip and Joanna Gaines, or Jonathan and Drew Scott, or Christine and Tarek perform their magic in home renovations, I can’t help but constantly think to myself, “Where in the world are the cleaning people?!”
Fixer Upper, Property Brothers, Flip or Flop, and basically every other home renovation show on HGTV seem to have something in common: the houses at the end are beautiful and spotless. Each show will feature this run-down, outdated, sometimes totally disgusting house, and then they’ll show a team get their hands dirty by knocking down walls and installing new finishes, usually followed by a staging crew that’ll make the space look stellar, finally resulting in a completely redone dream home. The one thing these shows seem to forget is to showcase the cleaning crew! I mean, come on now, how else do you guys think all of that sawdust and post-construction dirt is cleaned up? I’ll tell you one thing; it doesn’t just magically disappear.
