spring cleaning | a homehello giveaway
As I discussed yesterday, spring cleaning the family home is a challenge at the best of times. Throw in a bit of illness, a heavy workload and a six-month-old who’s just starting to move and I’m lucky if the dishes get done at night. Surely I’m not alone in wishing a cleaner would turn up on my doorstep and wave a magic wand? Mary Poppins would be good, too.
It turns out that finding a cleaner isn’t as hard as I first thought. Enter HomeHello; it’s simple and affordable and basically the Uber of home services. Started by a group of students from the University of New South Wales, HomeHello makes booking a reputable cleaner easy – as long as you’re based in Sydney or Melbourne you can find a local, available cleaner in a few simple steps.
No longer do you need to go through the time consuming rigmarole of finding a cleaner and looking for quotes; HomeHello connects individual cleaning contractors with customers based on their location and availability and the best part of the service is that each contractor is reviewed by past customers. Still unsure? Carol from HomeHello explains that each cleaner must go through a qualification process before they are listed on the site. “All our cleaners are required to have public liability insurance, police checks and at least one year of professional cleaning experience. Our 100 point rigorous recruitment process involves a face-to-face interview where we screen them through a series of behavioural and technical questions. If applicants are successful in the face-to-face interview, they are then sent on a cleaning trial where they will be further assessed on the quality of their clean. Once accepted, they are finally onboard as a HomeHello professional and are ready to deliver an immaculate cleaning service to your doorstep.”
Carol and her professional team hope to expand HomeHello to every Australian capital city and become the country’s number one hub for all home services – from cleaning to plumbing and all handyman services.
