The Trusted Name in Maid Service

Experienced

Many companies claim to have the best maid service. It’s important that you do your research, and understand whether you’re actually getting their best maids and what’s included in their cleaning maid service. With Handy, you have a company standing behind the maid service you receive, star-ratings and reviews on every maid, and if you are ever unsatisfied with the maid service you received, we have 24/7 customer support and the Happiness Guarantee.

Skilled and Capable

It’s very easy to make a mess of things if you don’t know what you’re doing when cleaning.  That’s why the maids you will find on the Handy platform are the best at what they do. They’ll know which cleaning solutions to use on which surfaces to leave everything looking great. And they won’t waste time either. They’ll bring an eye for detail to every maid service job that will be sure to impress you, your family, and any guests that may visit your home.

Reliable

Maid cleaning is most helpful for those customers who have children or pets and who, therefore, need to find a reliable maid to help out around the house - someone they rely upon rather than just a cheap maid service. Maids on the Handy platform are background-checked, vetted, and rated by customers like you. You can also read reviews about your maid in advance of booking your maid service so that you can make sure to work with a top-rated maid.

Flexible

We know how difficult it can be to find time to be home in the middle of a busy week. Whether you’re running around taking the kids to various school events and practices, or you just travel a lot for work, we want to make sure your maid service can fit the needs of your crazy schedule. When you book a maid service through the Handy platform, you can arrange for your maid to arrive between the hours of 7 AM and 11 PM, 7 days a week. And you can always reschedule right in the app. Just give us at least 24 hours’ notice and we’ll find a new time slot for you, no problem.

The Best Maid Service

An Affordable Luxury

Most people used to think that hiring a housemaid or a daily maid service was a luxury. That was before Handy arrived on the scene! Handy’s affordable maid service helps everyday people manage and maintain their home without breaking the bank. When you have a recurring maid service, your maid tends to get to know you and your home better and better. Over time, they will begin to understand your unique preferences. For example, some customers prefer when their maid washes their delicate dishes by hand, while others prefer to use the dishwasher. Additionally, maids can do extra tasks outside the typical realm of your traditional maid service like doing your laundry and organizing your closet, or picking up groceries. With Handy’s cleaning maid service, you can customize your cleaning as much or as little as you want. 

A Maid Service that Covers All the Essentials

The best maid service is one where you feel comfortable asking for exactly what you want, rather than worrying whether your cleaning “pet peeves” are outside the parameters of a standard cleaning. When you use Handy to find a maid service, you're the boss! Your maid will strive to deliver the best cleaning you've ever had, time and time again. Additionally, when you book a home maid service through Handy, you can book extras on top of the base cleaning to achieve your desired cleaning; you can also fill out a cleaning checklist and leave custom notes in the Handy app for your maid. If you don’t know what you want out of a maid cleaning, Handy has a standard cleaning checklist that includes cleaning the bathroom, kitchen and living area, making the bed, dusting all surfaces, mopping the floors, and vacuuming carpets and rugs.

Make Your Maid Service Routine

Maid services are most useful when you have a maid visit weekly, bi-weekly or monthly. Your maid can bring their own cleaning supplies or use yours if you have particular cleaning solutions you prefer. One of the best parts of using Handy’s home maid service is you don’t even need to be home when your maid is cleaning - you can leave the key with your doorman (if your building has one) or use a lockbox. If you’d prefer, you can let your maid in at the beginning of each booking, and leave while they clean up. But it’s up to you; some customers prefer to be home during their maid cleaning so that they can witness their home go from messy to sparkling in just a couple of hours. It’s truly a magical feeling!
