Helpling makes it easier and faster than ever before to book a professional cleaner – something that has previously often involved a lengthy journey, quests through circles of friends, browsing classifieds or contacting agencies. Users of the app or the website simply type in their address, the number of rooms and select a convenient date. A specially-designed algorithm then finds the perfect cleaner.
