You’re on a hectic schedule, and work is muscling in on your home time. Before you know it, the household chores have stacked up, laundry is piled high, you can’t remember when the windows last had a good clean, and you’re rapidly losing the balance between your work and life schedule.

This is where a little help could make a difference in your daily routine and save you from feeling overwhelmed.

Enter SweepSouth, an online platform connecting clients to a network of domestic cleaners.

Easy to download and simple to use, the SweepSouth app connects you with vetted cleaners, not only making it easy to book a cleaner, but also enabling you to personalise your cleaning requirements. From the cleaners’ side, they are able to accept better paid jobs, opt for neighbourhoods with convenient transport access, and have greater control over their working hours.

It’s no exaggeration that the app has changed the lives of many and revolutionised the home cleaning industry. 

The service has greatly impacted its clientele. From people who rave about the convenience of the app to users who acknowledge the friendliness and professionalism of the cleaners, the appreciation users have toward the innovative business which is funded by an early-stage tech business funding initiative, Naspers Foundry is undeniable.

We spoke to some SweepSouth clients, and here is what they had to say:

Mateen Memon, 25, a single man from Johannesburg, uses the SweepSouth platform to help manage his household chores and maintenance. He finds the service has freed up his downtime schedule, allowing him to partake in leisure activities and wind down after the intensity of work commitments.

Caira Blignaut, 24, and her girlfriend used the service for two months. They found the service helpful and the app easy to use and navigate. Caira says that the cleaners were efficient, accommodating, and made keeping their apartment tidy a breeze. She recommends the service to others looking to keep their space clean while balancing having a social and work life.

Wedaad Hoosain, 39, from Cape Town, is a working, married mom with two toddlers who finds the service comes in handy when her regular domestic worker heads back home for leave and breaks. She says the platform feels a lot more trustworthy than getting a stranger to fill in for the week or two when you might need assistance.

Cathryn Reece, 34, a married working mom with a toddler and another baby on the way, lives in Cape Town and has used the platform on and off for three years. Besides general cleaning needs, Cathryn used the service to do a full turnaround on her previous house ahead of selling it to ensure they left it speck and span for the new owners. She finds the seamless ability of being able to pay using a credit card convenient and appreciates the opportunity to re-book specific cleaners from the service.

Rushni Ebrahim, 26, a married working mom from Cape Town, says the platform is convenient and especially helpful for events. Rushni finds the service helps her do a quick cleaning turnaround when having events or functions and says she would recommend the platforms for others looking for that extra bit of assistance.

No matter what type of cleaning service you’re looking for – regular or once-off, the testimonials from SweepSouth are positive as they continue to win over new customers. Already, they are expanding into the office cleaning sector as well as offering a cleaning service to owners of bed & breakfasts/guesthouse.
