So, you tell me - is 4pm too early to break out the wine? This place is a zoo. My kids are pretty much homeschooling themselves. I set up my WFH office on the kitchen table so I don't have to listen to them no-schooling in their bedrooms. And on top of that I'm supposed to cook dinner, keep the place clean and organized, and be the best mom ever?
Every weekend, I vow that the kids and I'll get motivated enough to clean the kitchen, bathrooms, and common areas. Kiara's bedroom is a sea of clothes. Don't talk to me about Carl's room - absolute nightmare.
This was running through my mind when one of my mom-friends called and asked what was going on. So I just blurted it out - my house is a wreck, can I come live with you guys?
We laughed and she suggested I look into Handy, which she uses to book home cleaning services and highly recommends. So I pulled up their page on my phone. Handy's website is simple to navigate, informative, with a 24/7 customer service team if I have any questions. They'll connect me with a local, 1st rate cleaning Professional who can clean my house weekly, bi-weekly or monthly depending how often I need a cleaner to come.

I felt confident booking through Handy knowing the Pros on the platform are vetted and I could read reviews to request the Pro I wanted to work with. They put each Pro through background check screenings that use credential verification technology to ensure Handy's the most reliable way to book a cleaning in the biz.
Plus, if I ever need to move a scheduled appointment, Handy's app makes it super-easy to tweak my calendar, or specify particular cleaning directions.
I wanted to see how much this would cost, so I used Handy's app to view Pros in my area. I entered the number of rooms, bathrooms, and asked for a deep clean. I tossed in extras like inside the fridge, inside the oven, even laundry and their upfront rates and pricing seem really affordable.
Besides, if I'm ever dissatisfied with the quality of a service, Handy's Happiness Guarantee ensures that they'll work to make it right.
But what really calmed my fears about scheduling a cleaning during the outbreak, is that I can cancel or reschedule bookings if I feel sick, or if I'm concerned about my kids or the Handy Pro's wellbeing. Wow. This is such good news. I'm going to book a cleaning for early next week.
Then I immediately started strategizing about how my family could stay at a safe distance while our Cleaning Pro puts my house in order. We could garden. Or the kids could garden, while I sip a well-deserved glass of wine on our gazebo and thoroughly unwind.
We'll see how it goes, but I'm thinking with Handy, it'll be a slam dunk.
