The Trusted Name in Housekeeping Referrals

Experienced

When you book a housekeeper through Handy, you’re putting your home in the hands of a cleaning professional who knows exactly how to make your home shine. Millions have used the Handy platform to book the best housekeeping services available. Take back control of your time and your environment. Your chosen cleaner will tackle the housekeeping jobs you don’t have time for, from dusting and cleaning the floors, to sanitizing the toilet to taking out your garbage and recycling. 

Skilled and Capable

The best housekeepers know exactly which cleaning solutions to use on which surfaces in order to clean them safely and professionally without any risk of damage. The housekeeping professionals on the Handy platform have learned more than a thing or two about how to best clean your home. You can rest assured that they will take great care of your personal space and bring a level of attention to detail that will shock and astonish you.

Reliable

The stress of returning to a home that is indistinguishable from a dumpster at the end of the day can’t be underestimated. If you live alone, it can even make you feel guilty. Once your day is done, you want to come home to an environment that you can be proud of. One that you can welcome people back to, without fear of judgement. Luckily, you can relax and know that your reliable and dependable housekeeper will leave things in a state that will be sure to impress even the most picky critics. 

Flexible

When you’ve got a busy life to take care of, it’s good to know that you can book a top housekeeping service at any time of the day or night from the comfort of your own home. Housekeeping bookings are available between the hours of 7 AM and 11 PM, 7 days a week. We know your life is busy, so let Handy flex to fit it — not the other way around.

The Best Housekeeping Referral Agency

An Affordable Luxury

Choosing to outsource your cheap housekeeping is a great way to make better use of your time, whether you need to focus on work or your family. With the housekeeping taken care of, you can come back to a home that looks warm, welcoming, and super-clean. And if you think that the best housekeeping services are outside your budget; think again. The Handy platform connects you with cheap housekeeping, for the most competitive rates and the best-quality professionals. The housekeeping professional you book will turn up at the time that’s best for you, with all the equipment they need for the job and ready to go. 

You Deserve a Break

The Handy app isn’t just for busy professionals or time-starved moms: there are plenty of good reasons to book the best housekeeping services. The Handy platform allows you to book housekeeping services as whenever you like. If you’re low on time, you can book a professional cleaner to come on a regular basis, be it weekly, biweekly, or monthly. You might be organizing a special party or celebration and focusing on more important things than breaking out the housekeeping equipment. Book a cheap housekeeping service provider through Handy and you can get on with the cooking or the decorations, while your home is prepared to receive your guests.

Did a great job cleaning but some things were rearranged after, would have preferred her to return everything to original place.

Stacia H.

Wow. Talk about TOP service. Floriana was fast and efficient, extremely detailed and extremely knowledgeable about cleaning. She was able to empty my dishwasher, load dirty dishes, then unload the recently cleaned ones before she left. Changed my duvet (with no help) along with the rest of my sheets. When she was completely finished I felt like I was walking into a hotel room. She deserves 10 stars. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
