I have four brothers, so issues with things like who is going to clean came up a lot. However, I had other talents that I could trade for cleaning duty. Cleaning is not hard, but I prefer to simply clean up after myself immediately, so it never gets dirty. I was and still am strict about this even today because I despise cleaning. My college roommate hated me because I was always on him about cleaning immediately. The norm is to let things pile, so there is this thing called cleaning up. It is totally ridiculous, and I never understood it. I think my mom just liked cleaning as a ritual on Saturdays. She had music and everything like it was an event. She made us participate even though I had a better system. I understand now in adulthood that life can get busy, but this is one thing that I refuse to budge on. I am sure that my kids think that I am completely OCD, but I just do not like cleaning, and I refuse to let them adopt the cleaning up method.
However, the world is not me, and this includes my wife and kids because sometimes, they simply have had enough of me. They protest and slam doors. They moan and whine, and finally, I give in, and we will let things go to get some sleep or eat. So who cleans after days of this, me. So this sends me back into my clean it up now habit, and all is right with the world. Well, at least the house is clean, and more importantly, it is organized. There are many hours aggregately lost being unorganized each week, and it breaks my concentration. I am a paranoid writer, so breaking my chain of thought makes me think that I may have lost a multi-million dollar thought. In turn, I am further stressed by my over-exaggerated, imaginary loss. To prevent all of this angst, I have begun to hire a cleaner, and my family loves me for it because they can now be even lazier.
I have found cleaning services to be very arbitrary in pricing and unreliable even. As a result, we had to resort to my cleaning technique for a while. Sensing increasing rancor, I searched the Web for a solution or alternative to common house cleaning services. I happened upon an app called the Handy app. This is a house cleaning app that functions exactly like you would think an app for a service works. I hit them on Handy via techcrunch, and they come. People that utilize the app are able to give ratings to the cleaner’s that they utilize, and more experienced cleaners are priced higher than less experienced ones. I like that they work hard. I think this has something to do with their being contractors, and the app simply helps them build their businesses effectively. There are other safeguards that include paying the app instead of money changing hands in person that make the Handy app a real comprehensive alternative to traditional cleaning services.
