Hi! My name is Brit and I’m a part time house keeper to fund a move to the UK! My mom and grandma taught me how to clean real well when I was a young little thing, and it sure is relaxing and been a joy traveling around Chicago and cleaning a variety of homes! I’m quick and efficient and have a vacuum if need be, and in my spare time I paint and hang with my dog and work in the service industry :)

Katie M.

Seemed more of a surface and cleaning around things rather than picking up items and cleaning behind/underneath them

Sarah P.

Laura M was the best Handy person I have had! I will request her from now on. She was on time, efficient and friendly!

Lauren K.

This was the second time we’ve used Starisha for cleaning. She really thought about our needs when she came back with new materials the second time. She brought a special tool to help us clean our tub and it is sparkling now.

Book with Handy Today

For Sarah Bernhardt, Chicago was ‘the pulse of America’, and we believe it is a description rightfully earned. With so much activity going on, it’s good to know that Handy is always there to facilitate your house cleaning and home cleaning needs. Whatever your needs, when you search for ‘Chicago cheap house cleaning' and download the Handy app, we’ll set you up with your next booking in just a few taps.

 

While you’re doing your morning jog in Grant Park or waiting for the next train to your job in the Loop, it’s reassuring to know that your home is being cared for. From Little Italy to North Mayfair, Gold Coast to Fulton River, Handy has it covered. Are you a Bears fan eager to catch the game but saddled with a pile of laundry that needs to be taken care of in the house? Take your seat at Soldier Field and enjoy your Sunday while your professional gets the washer-dryer started -- you’ve earned it. Or if baseball is more your speed, head down to Wrigley and watch the Cubbies make Chicago proud.

 

Maybe you walk past the Art Institute every day, but when was the last time you stepped inside? Of course, you’re familiar with the Sears Tower (calling it the Willis Tower will never feel natural, will it?) on the skyline, but did you ever think of going up to the viewing platform? The Shakespeare Theater at Navy Pier puts on some great shows, but when was the last time you enjoyed one? Book the best cleaning services in Chicago through the Handy platform and free up some time to be a tourist in your city.
