Get Maid, another Uber-type startup, has launched. The app allows users to find and schedule a professional to clean NY apartments. The service charges a flat $45 an hour fee, which includes a tip and eco-friendly cleaning supplies.
Co-founder Steve Gutentag saw that cleaning services are mostly offline and the online sites didn’t reveal prices, making the market ripe for disruption. The app allows maids to sync up with customers and give them a time estimate. If the customer isn’t there, maids can also notify them when the job is finished. Gutentag said all of the maids are vetted for security, trained, bonded and insured.
