Spring cleaning is a the complete and thorough cleaning of a place especially done traditionally in the spring of the year. However, spring cleaning can also be used to describe the act of giving a place a complete cleaning. It can also be used to mean cleaning all of a place, most likely your house, extremely well, including parts which one does not always clean. Spring cleaning services are often offered by different specialists including hiring maids and handymen. Amid the rush for the need for reliable and efficient home service providers, a company that is closer to you than any other in the business has emerged. The sketchy world of maid services and other cleaning agencies has been replaced by a simple website and app that can be downloaded to your phone.

Handy, which was formerly known as Handybook, runs a two sided service business that seeks to bring customers and natural home cleaners and handymen together. Handy was founded by Oisin Hanrahan and Umang Dua in 2012 back at Havard Business School where the two of them met randomly as roommates. They wanted to create a solution to this problem, and so they came up with the idea of founding the Handy company. Since the company was established in 2012, it has been rising rapidly and gaining popularity all around America. It has branches in 28 cities and has raised 64 million dollars. The company also has 50 employees and thousands of freelancers who can work for more than 10,000 jobs a month. Handy has also been building its brand tremendously with sales recording a 60% increase each month for three months straight.

On many cases Handy has been likened to Uber because it handles payments and scheduling on both the supply and demand in the home services industry. It also brags of being one of the quickest and most reliable ways of booking household service providers. While it offers other services, home cleaning is the primary service because the managers believe it will act as gateway drug for other home jobs.
