What’s So “Handy” About Handy.com?

Ever needed a house cleaned in a hurry? Perhaps you had a party planned for the evening and now your dog has caused a path of destruction. Handy makes it easy for you to get the help you need quickly and easily. Like Uber, Handy utilizes a mobile app that allows consumers to request cleaning or other services. Once the request is made it is received by one of Handy’s contracted workers.

Unlike UBER, the screening process for these workers is quite extensive. It involves a detailed background check as well as an in-person interview. Handy wants to ensure that everyone who uses their service is safe and satisfied with the results. As a result, only 3% of those who have applied to work for Handy have been accepted. The exclusivity ensures that Handy’s users are only getting the best.

While Handy is primarily known for providing  home cleaning services, they do offer other services as well. In addition to cleaning they offer electrical, plumbing, and handyman services. You can even use the app to request someone to help you move, paint a room, or mount your new TV on the wall. If you have something in mind, Handy has a complete list of services that they offer on their website.

Handy is available in multiple service areas throughout the United States, United Kingdom, and Canada. The full list of covered areas is listed on the sohostrut.com website. At the moment they are primarily available in highly-populated areas such as Los Angeles, London, and Toronto. However, Handy has been expanding quickly and is anticipated to cover more areas in the future.

So whether your in-laws have decided to make a surprise visit or your leaky drain is keeping you up at night, handy may be the solution you have been looking for.
