Handy, The New Home Cleaning Service Providing App

October 17th, 2015

Finding someone to clean a home is difficult, especially finding someone or a some company to clean for a reasonable price. Fortunately, there is an app that lists the services of many independent cleaners and home cleaning service providers called Handy. Handy has been around for about four years, and was founded by Umang Dua and Oisin Hanrahan.

Handy is similar to Uber in the sense that many independent service providers can list their services. Although Uber is very widespread, Handy is not, unfortunately. Handy currently operates in about 25 cities in the United States, two in Canada, and one in the United Kingdom. If one lives where Handy operates, that person has practically hit the lottery. Most people are not able to hire anyone to clean their home because it simply too expensive. The average price of a service provider listed on Handy on crunchbase is only $22 per hour, proving a very reasonable rate.

Handy makes sure to weed out many of the applicants so users can be provided with a great experience, and not have to deal with anyone who will not show up, or not deal with anybody that might be dishonest. If there are multiple complaints about a cleaner, their listing is removed from the app almost immediately.

Cleaners who apply to Handy are subject to a lengthy application. Handy is actually much more selective than Harvard University, with about only three percent of applicants being hand-picked to list their services on Handy.

Recently, Handy has grown nearly exponentially. More than one million dollars worth of bookings are listed per week on the app, which makes it the largest app of its kind.

In the past, people looking for home cleaning services have been forced to look on Craigslist or look for listings in the local newspaper or any buy, sell, trade forums. The lack of a location where all home cleaning service providers can list their services has resulted in home cleaning being overpriced for consumers, rendering it far too expensive for the average renter or home owner.

Handy charges very reasonable fees, considering the popularity of the app. Only about twenty percent of the agreed upon price is garnished, which provides cleaners with cheap advertising expenses. It is not feasible for a small home cleaning company or better yet an independent house cleaner to expend a good deal of their money towards advertising, because the cost will probably not be worth the effort. Handy mitigates this by only charging money on the services performed, rather than the amount of listings.

Home cleaning service providers who have wanted to work on their own but haven’t had enough money to start their business up should look into Handy. Clients want all types of cleaning, from simple dusting and picking up misplaced items all the way to repair of burned or flooded homes.

If one is interested in learning more about Handy, simply visit their official website at or download the app by searching for it on any major app store.
