Washington D.C. is renowned for its world-class museums and stunning architecture, as you'd expect for the capital of the USA. This city also has America's second busiest subway. The system even includes private subways that link the White House to the Capitol and the Senate.


One of the best things about D.C. is how much greenery it has. For instance, beautiful Rock Creek Park has endless trails for walking and cycling, and it's over twice as big as Central Park (despite what New Yorkers would tell you). However, research shows D.C. residents face one of the longest commutes of any U.S city. That means getting quality recreational time is essential, especially when you’re working long hours and trying to keep up an excellent work-life balance. That's why residents all over D.C. choose Handy to book their apartment cleaning, so they can make the most of their precious free time.


When you’re hosting family and friends, they might ask you to give them a grand tour of the city, especially if they’re not staying long. This will have to include a visit to the White House, even if they only see it from the outside. Then they’ll probably want to explore the National Mall, too, so they can see the Washington Monument, the stunning U.S Capitol building, and the Smithsonian museums and garden. All this could quickly take up your whole day, so the last thing you want to do is spend hours cleaning your home before your guests arrive.


Here at Handy, we know how important it is to have a clean home when you host guests. So whether you’re living the bohemian dream in Columbia Heights, are at the heart of the action in Capitol Hill, or enjoying the peace in Arlington you can always use Handy to arrange excellent home cleaning services at the lowest price every time. Give your guests that grand tour of the city, while we take care of business closer to home.
