The first time we heard the word ‘on-demand’ when they launched Uber back in 2011. At that time, we didn’t think that the word ‘on-demand’ will revolutionize almost all businesses and the way people purchase products and services.
The on-demand business model of Uber is so refined that many entrepreneurs have been applying the same business model on every kind of business, regardless of the industry type. House and office cleaning is one of those businesses, which have found their own ways to derive benefits by adopting the on-demand business model.
Talking specifically about the house and office cleaning industry of Australia, many companies have been offering commercial cleaning services in all major cities of Australia. But recently, thanks to affordable mobile app development solutions and the latest technologies, they have acquired robust and feature-packed mobile as well as web applications.
Since these apps offer easy-to-use interface and transparency, people prefer to book a cleaning service using an app. And as a result, business owners get sight of the ever-increasing revenue graph. These apps enable users to book cleaner at the preferred time. Users can also know the quote before booking a cleaner. And Users can pay for the service through the app itself.
So, if you are living in Australia and looking for cleaners for end-of-lease cleaning or regular cleaning, here is the list of top cleaning apps available in Australia which provide you convenience and genius service at the same time. But before we reveal the list, let’s wrap our mind around the few facts of the Australian cleaning market.

Top 5 mobile and web applications available in Australia to book cleaning service on-demand
Before we move ahead and list out top cleaning apps, it is worth mentioning that all online cleaning companies either work on Uber-style business model or on a conventional business model. In Uber-style business model, they allow anyone to be cleaner as an independent contractor and when someone books the cleaning service, a nearby cleaner gets notified for the job. While in a conventional business model, companies allow users to book cleaning service online, but they allocate their hired cleaners for that job. According to the capital fund and long-term business goals, cleaning companies choose any one of these two business models.
Helping is the Germany-based startup, founded by Benedikt Franke and Philip Huffmann in 2014. After launching cleaning services in Berlin, their ambition travelled further and so, they launched Helping in Austria, France, Sweden and Netherlands. Currently, 150 cities including many Australian cities are under their business boundaries. In Australia, the major cities where Helping is earning good are Sydney and Melbourne.
Using Helping mobile app, users can book home as well as office cleaning service from as minimum as $35 per hour. Helping also allows users to select weekly and biweekly cleaning service. Regardless of the service a user selects, he can always enter his preferred cleaning time and date. Once a user books the spot, he can pay the fee and system allocates the nearby cleaner for the job. If a user selects weekly or biweekly service, he can ask Helping to send the same cleaner every time.
Considering the facts that Helping is one of the very old app-based cleaning companies, provides reliable customer support and owns an army of professional and trusted cleaners, it is the best company to hire for cleaning.

Tidyme is another very popular cleaning service providing company. It was founded in 2014 and currently offers its services in most suburbs of Sydney and Melbourne. Tidyme claims that their feature-packed platform which connects people with professional cleaners provides a seamless booking process and secure payment option.
Though Tidyme is offering the same services as Helping, there are some major differences between Tidyme and Helping. Helping charges customers based on hours a cleaner required to complete the job. Whereas, Tidyme charges customers based on the number of bathrooms and rooms a customer wishes to be cleaned. Moreover, Tidyme uses all eco-friendly products to clean up houses and offices. For eco-friendly products, they have tied up with eco-friendly cleaning products manufacturer, Method.
Tidyme is the highest rated (on Google) cleaning company in Australia. However, they do not offer a mobile app. To book the spot, you still need to fetch their website. (App is in the early stage.)
