have recently announced they are excited to be officially launching their app, dubbed the ‘Check-a-Trade for cleaning professionals.’

“I know from experience that working full-time in a demanding profession and taking care of your family, while very rewarding, is tiring and often leaves little time for anything else. Cleaning and housework is the very last thing you want to be doing,” says founder Khurram Mirza, “for me, home should be a place of rest and relaxation.”

Khurram spoke after launching the disruptive cleaning app in the London boroughs of Croydon, Bromley, Southwark, Barnet, Ealing, Harrow, Greenwich, Redbridge, The City of London, Wandsworth and Westminster. The app works as a database which collates a list of highly reputable and vetted cleaning professionals that are available to users to select, and rate based on their performance.

“It was super important to me for me to put together something that could work equally for both cleaners and users, this is why it’s so flexible for parents, students and foreign workers, so they could manage their own schedule and earn great money as a self-employed cleaner while working around their children, studies and other commitments.”

The app allows cleaners to select their own prices (of which they keep 100% of the money), hours and also rate the homes they are visiting. However, each cleaner must undergo rigorous vetting processes, which include face-to-face interviews, background, CRB, criminal and documentation checks for safety purposes.

Users can also sign up for the app and select the times and dates convenient for them and their family to book cleaning services up to three months in advance, as well as more specialist services like end of tenancy, bathroom, and deep cleans.

When asked how he came to develop the app, Khurram, who has a background in finance and investment had this to say, “In many countries abroad, it’s common for most homes to have a professional cleaner, someone who becomes an extension to the family – so you can imagine how difficult it can be to find the right fit.”

“I work between two locations, and when I came back to England, my mum was getting older and needed more help around the house. We had the same problem of trying to find consistent and reliable cleaning service providers as I did abroad, and that’s when I decided to start developing this app.”

“From the beginning I knew I wanted to help take the load off busy families, by providing them with a selection of hard-working, well-paid and motivated cleaning professionals.”

“It’s absolutely amazing to see how everything has come together, but we’re definitely not done yet, we’re excited to continue down this road and expand our reach throughout the UK and even further,” concludes Khurram.
