As the Spring season breaks through wintry weather, homeowners are left with feelings to clean their houses. Unfortunately, not everyone has enough time or energy to clean: many people work long hours, have kids to take care of, and work multiple jobs. Home cleaners and maids are generally hard to find, not to mention expensive.
Handy, a revolutionary home cleaning mobile application, has effectively changed the cleaning economy. Handy gives home cleaners a place to advertise their services, whose listings are seen by local homeowners. Handy only takes approximately a 20% cut of the price listed, leaving home cleaners with both good advertising and a healthy share of earnings, something most independent cleaners aren’t able to achieve on their own. By collecting cleaners’ information and compiling it in the easily-accessible Handy mobile app, price for home cleaners is lower than when found on other mediums.
The average price of Handy’s cleaning professionals ranges between $15 and $22 per hour, an affordable rate for most homeowners. Customers are able to schedule appointments with cleaners when they are out of the house, as to not bother cleaning professionals. Payments are made through the Handy app electronically, holding funds in escrow until both homeowner and home cleaner have agreed the contracted jobs were completed successfully. Recently, Handy incorporated a feature to offer tipping within the application, saving involved parties wasted time and inconveniences.
Spring cleaning is certainly made easier by Handy, but every homeowner should dabble in spring cleaning themselves. Most professional cleaners suggest to first gather personal belongings around the house and organize them in desks, drawers, tables, cabinets, and shelves. Next, clear all clothes, toys, and other objects from the floor. Lastly, dust all exposed surfaces and sweep and mop the floors. There are tons of other tasks to take on outside of the aforementioned three, but most cleaners insist these are the most important.
