The Trusted Name in Local Cleaning Service Referrals

Experienced

Unlike large cleaning companies, we know there’s no such thing as a one-size-fits-all cleaning service. Different homes and different people have different requirements. Using the Handy platform to connect with a neighborhood cleaner, you’re not only supporting the community you live in, but you’re using an experienced professional, who has the know-how and the can-do attitude to tackle even the toughest of jobs. You get to check ratings and reviews from genuine customers like you, so you can rest easy, knowing the local cleaning professional you are matched with is the best around.

Skilled and Capable

You might think that anyone can be a professional, local house cleaner, but the truth is that it requires a specific skill-set and certain capabilities. Cleaning a home from top to bottom is a physically demanding job, especially if you’re cleaning more than one in a day. Cleaners booked through the Handy platform know all the tips and tricks of the trade to ensure they deliver a premium quality service. From knowing the right cleaning products to use, to clever hacks to ensure your home is spotless, book a local cleaning service using Handy and you’re booking a local professional who has made cleaning their livelihood.

Reliable

There’s nothing worse than waiting for a cleaner to turn up, particularly if you’ve got somewhere to go or something important to do. The local cleaning service professionals who use Handy know that their reputations depend on your satisfaction, from the service they deliver to showing up on time. Local cleaners using Handy are more dependent on upholding their status as a professional than those employed by a large cleaning corporation, so they’ll work harder and deliver a better service, every time. Reliable and ready to work, cleaners hired through Handy want nothing more than to give you the best service.

Flexible

If you book a neighborhood cleaning service through a big cleaning company, the chances are you’ll be locked into that booking. If you try and change the booking or need to cancel, you could be penalized with extra fees. At Handy, we know that our customers’ schedules can change and if something comes up and you need to cancel or reschedule – it’s not a problem; just let us know at least 24 hours before your appointment and we’ll be happy to find another time that works better for you.

The Best Local Cleaning Service Referral Agency

Your home, cleaned your way

One of the problems with using a larger cleaning company is that their cleaners tend to work with certain policies and parameters. You might find that some things are beyond what they are allowed to do, leaving you to do the chores you wanted taken care of by your cleaning service. Use Handy to connect with a local neighborhood cleaner and you can let them know from the outset what you want to be done, and how. To start the ball rolling, the platform features an online checklist where you can input any instructions you have for your chosen cleaning professional. As you and your cleaner get to know each other, you’ll find you can simply ask them to carry out other tasks, creating a fully personalized cleaning service.

An affordable luxury

Once upon a time, hiring a neighborhood cleaning service used to be a luxury reserved for a select few. The Handy platform has changed all that, making it an affordable service for time-strapped parents, busy entrepreneurs, and overworked professionals! From the outset, cleaners who use the Handy platform come with clearly-defined, competitive, and reasonable pricing. There are no hidden fees so the price you’re seeing is the price you’ll pay. You don’t even have to worry about having cash on the day; the Handy platform features a secure online payments system, removing the need for cash entirely.

A quality service done by professionals

Whether you decide to have your home cleaned once a week, twice a week, or once a month, you’re assured a professional cleaning service when you use the Handy platform. All cleaners are vetted, screened, and background-checked, so you don’t even have to be home to let them in. Leave your key with your doorman or in a lockbox, go and do what you’ve got to do, and then come back to a sparkling home. You can ask the cleaner to bring their own cleaning products or, if you have your own favorite products, you can ask them to use your own. Whatever you want from your local cleaning service, you’ll find cleaners who offer their services on Handy are true professionals.
