My mom made it look so easy. Work, raise all the kids, cook the best meals, and keep our home the cleanest, tidiest house on the block. It makes me wonder what I do with all my time, I feel like all I do is work, eat, and sleep and I still can't find the time to clean my apartment.
I mean, I try all the time but I'm just not good at it. My mom has even given me her deep cleaning tips and I just never get around to doing it. I keep my apartment presentable and do the daily small cleaning tasks I can do. But after spending so long in my apartment, I wanted a deep clean, a cleaning that you walk in and you notice how clean your apartment is, like when you can smell and feel it.
As I'm officially too old to ask my mom to do it, I started looking up the best cleaning services in my area and I found Handy. Handy connects you to vetted and background checked cleaning professionals in your area.
I needed to find the best out there, because my apartment is my sanctuary right now, and let's be honest, letting someone into your home to clean is a little personal. All my research kept leading me back to Handy. From what I read, Handy is the quickest, easiest, and best way to book a cleaning service out there.
Their website was really easy to use, everything laid out really clearly and the booking process couldn't be more straightforward. Handy allows you to book everything from a full deep clean, to window washing and laundry. You can put in your address, how many rooms are in your apartment and what cleaning service you would like to add, to see the price upfront before booking.
Handy offers weekly, biweekly, and monthly cleaning plans at a time that suits you. If you have any questions, Handy customer service is there 24/7. But what really sold it to me was the Handy Happiness Guarantee, if you aren't happy with your service Handy will work to make it right.
Plus, the Handy Safety Standard includes a number of efforts to help foster a safe environment to better serve customers and cleaning professionals who use the Handy platform. Not only have face coverings been provided to all professionals, Handy also requires them to complete daily in-app checkups to confirm they are symptom-free before they can claim a booking. Handy is also communicating the CDC's health and safety guidelines and best practices to all customers and pros and even sharing guidance on using EPA-approved cleaning products.
Handy sounded like exactly what I was searching for, I couldn't wait to sign up. Maybe I'll even invite my mom over to impress her when my home is spotless thanks to Handy.
