I don’t like cleaning, it’s a chore and I don’t enjoy it at all. I would rather spend my time cooking or sewing. This is why my husband and I arranged our home to be as easy to maintain as possible considering we both work from home and we have a dog too. We’ve bought a carpet cleaner, a powerful Dyson vacuum cleaner, our furniture has lots of doors to hide from dust as much as we can. I also use as many cute storage boxes as I can. I was delighted to hear about Hassle cleaning service* in Liverpool. What I like most about the service is that it can be used regularly or as a one-time thing.
Even though my home is as mess-free as possible, sometimes when we have to work long hours there isn’t any time for cleaning. In those situations I would like a flexible service. Hassle has vetted cleaners that are interviewed by them and checked by a third party. Another great thing about them is that the cleaner can be paid online with debit/credit card, after the clean was made. Furthermore, there isn’t a contract or monthly fees and you can manage everything online.
The cleaners are self-employed and they get work as close to their homes as possible. I looked on the booking system and I can choose a cleaner that is ok with pets.
For an one-off clean the fee is £12/hour, this is the service I would use. The fee for repeat cleans is £10/hour. In Liverpool, their services include kitchen cleaning, oven cleaning, spring cleaning, deep cleaning, ironing and so on. The cleaners are reviewed by other hassle customers. Before booking, you can choose to remove a cleaner from the shortlist if you wish to do so. After the booking is made, the first cleaner form the shortlist to respond will get the job. I think the system is great.
The story behind the service is lovely. The company started in 2011 while one of the co-founders was trying to find a piano teacher online. Teddle was launched as a platform for finding different services. As the demand for home cleaning grew, Teddle was re-branded into Hassle, as an online cleaning marketplace.
