Handy Revolutionizes The Household Cleaning Industry
Few companies have ever hit the market that are beneficial to both consumers and job seekers as Handy, an app for customers looking for household cleaning services in their local area. Usually finding a household cleaning company entails doing a detailed search to find the most trusted and affordable company in a local area, but Handy saves customers both time and money by instantly connecting them to cleaning professionals and scheduling cleanings as soon as the next day. Customers can simply download the Handy app, follow a few quick easy steps to schedule a cleaning time, and pay for the service quickly and securely with no hidden fees.
Handy was started in 2012 by Oisin Hanrahan, a young real estate developer who was having difficulty finding good cleaning professionals when he was out buying living spaces that needed renovating. So he and his friend Umang Dua started up Handy as a way of bringing customers and service professionals together under one roof. Handy has received funding through Highland Capital Partners and General Catalyst Partners among others, reported to be around $50 million. While handy has had some uphill battles they’ve had to deal with during the last few years, the company feels they are starting to make their business model viable for the long term.
