Back in the "good ole days", most households had a stay at home mom. Laundry, cleaning and cooking were all taken care of by this versatile, tireless individual. Nurse, doctor, chauffeur, and handyman are just a few of the hats she wore. Never off duty, she was always ready for anything. These days, it's a little different. Most families have both parents working full time. Add to that all of the extra-curricular activities involved in the average home, and there's just not a lot of time left for housework. A live-in maid would be wonderful, but how many of us can afford that?
What you really need is for everyone in the house to step up and help out a little. That, and someone that can come in once in a while to help. Maybe once a week, or maybe once a month. You never really know ahead of time. You need someone that can respond quickly when you need them, and always be available at the drop of a hat. You need someone that you can trust. You need someone like Handy, Home Cleaning Services.
Handy has not been around very long, but they have revolutionized the business of home cleaning. By connecting qualified workers with needy customers, they benefit both parties. Strict employment standards assure that all of their workers are top notch. Of thousands of applicants, only about 3% qualify. They currently have over 5,000 highly qualified workers ready to serve you. Handy has services available in 25 cities in the U.S., and 2 in Canada. They are also now offering services in London.
The surging popularity of Handy Home Services is due largely to the release of HandyBook; a software app on techcrunch.com that makes it possible to connect the freelance cleaners with their customers. The clients contact Handy, and request whatever services they need. Handy posts these requests, and available workers accept whatever they chose. This makes it possible for the workers to chose when and how often they want to work. Their earnings are paid almost immediately, making it an excellent setup for both parties.
The business of house cleaning used to be sketchy. Often, cash was used to pay workers that weren't certified. This was risky for both parties. HandyBook has eliminated the cash payments, sending all of their funds electronically. This makes it possible for workers to build proof of income. It also makes it possible for freelance workers to be able to earn as much or as little as they want. The service, founded by Oisin Hanrahan and Umang Dua, has had a steady increase in business since they began in 2112. Meeting as college room mates, the two entrepreneurs came up with a new way to connect the supply and demand sides of home maintenance. Today, they're booking services at the rate of a million dollars a week. Pretty Handy, eh?
