Cleaning is almost never a hobby. Give yourself a break to relax or make time to do fun stuff together in and around your home. Hiring a cleaner has advantages, especially now that hygiene is super important. Enter Helpling. They can help you find a cleaner in your own neighbourhood with ease!
What is contactless cleaning?
Helpling is a marketplace and they help cleaners and households find each other easily. Even during this pandemic, they want to make your life easy. So, they have introduced contactless cleaning. During contactless cleaning, the contamination risk will be minimised by following recommendations from Dutch public health authorities, such as the RIVM and the GGD.
You should keep each other posted about your health and notify each other if you think there’s an infection risk. Furthermore, you should discuss the necessary equipment and make sure you’ll have disinfection products at home.
The cleaners are able to update their profile and indicate if they wear a mask and / or gloves during cleaning. Furthermore, they have the opportunity to attend a webinar about cleaning during COVID-19 and how to use extra hygienic measures.
How do I find a cleaner that suits my needs?
Enter Iamexpat10 at the checkout and get a €10 discount on your first booking!
The first step is to enter your postal code. Based on that, you’ll see the available cleaners in your neighbourhood. How often do you want your cleaner to come over and clean your home? You’ll have the option to choose a cleaning session that is a one-off, weekly or every second week. You decide which option best fits your needs! Add your preferred date and time and you’ll see which of the cleaners are available at that specific time.
Moreover, every cleaner has their own profile which includes their price, reviews from other customers and the experience they have on the platform. Based on this, you can select the cleaners whom you want to welcome into your home! Of course, they understand that you might be anxious given the current situation - that’s why cleaners who are COVID-19 prepared have a blue circle around their profile. Easy to recognise!
How does it work?
Everyone has their own views when it comes to what is important, so discuss with each other what has priority for you. Discuss which tasks you want to give your cleaner. This can vary from standard chores like vacuuming, dusting and mopping, to cleaning the fridge, the stove, the windows and doing the laundry.
If you decide to book a weekly or bi-weekly clean, you can give the cleaner the keys of your home, so you don’t even need to be there. You can go for a walk or picnic in the park, take the kids to a playground or go grocery shopping while your home is being cleaned. So many options!
