Cleaning up after the holidays is a necessary chore, but no one enjoys doing it. Cleaning up a Christmas tree, Christmas decorations, wrapping paper or the detritus of Christmas dinner can get a little messy and tiring. To save some time and energy take advantage of new home cleaning apps that are now available on your mobile devices.
Handy is one of the better-known online platforms for people who are looking for some help in their household cleaning tasks. Handy offers home-cleaning services based on an hourly rate, and users can request cleaning professionals that they had on a previous booking. Cleaning help can arrive as soon as the next day (depending on availability) and services are available every day from 7 am to 11 pm. Cleaning services are customizable based on what areas need the most attention (kitchen, bathroom, or specialized jobs such as inside the oven).
To book a cleaning, simply download the Handy app on your phone, which is available for both iOS and Android. Billing is handled directly to a user’s card, so you won’t have to worry about cash. Handy also provides furniture assembly and TV mounting services, as well as interior painting, hanging pictures and shelves, and even plumbing. Two things to be aware of are Handy’s recurring bookings and their cancellation policy. Handy will automatically set bookings for you every few weeks (based on your preference) so be sure you don’t miss a booking. In addition, bookings cancelled more than 24 hours ahead of time are subject to a 24-hour cancellation fee, and those cancelled, one hour before the booking or less must pay the full amount in cancellation, so be aware of when your bookings are to avoid getting hit a substantial fee if you can’t make it.
