How do the Dutchies keep their house clean?

We know it’s difficult to keep your home clean and tidy when you are often occupied with moving/settling into a new community, learning a new language, adjusting to a new culture, work, exploring the city and other events.

Helpling can help you to keep your house clean during these busy days. Helpling is an online platform that matches you to cleaners in your neighborhood. You can easily arrange all matters related to your appointment from wherever you are via your Helpling account. We make sure you can arrange an appointment with a cleaner of your preference at the moment you need it. You can, for example, go for a one-off or recurring cleaning appointment and you can determine the duration of the appointment you need. On behalf of the Dutch, you're welcome!

So how do you find a cleaner via Helpling?

It can be a tough job finding reliable cleaners, especially when you just arrived in the Netherlands and you’re not even sure what street you live on!

Local and private house cleaning

No two homes are the same, maybe you’ll be living with two others in a big house or you’ll be living with one other person in a tiny apartment. You might be living in a big apartment with your loved one. Basically, everything is possible, therefore you decide how the cleaner spends his or her time at your home. We know that cleaning up at home is very personal; everyone finds something else important. Talk with your cleaner about what has priority for you during the first clean. For example

  • Is it time for a major cleaning in the living room?
  • Do you need a clean house before an upcoming party or after?
  • Will you be moving anytime soon and do you need to deliver the apartment clean?
  • Are you moving into an apartment which you would like to be deep cleaned first?

If you have any other wishes, you can always talk with the cleaner through the online chat function or when they arrive at the booking. The cleaners working via Helpling are completely flexible and clean your house the way you want it to be done. That’s what we call happy house cleaning!

Single or recurring booking?

Most people prefer a recurring (two) weekly booking, this way you are always assured of a clean house, even if you are busy exploring the city or spending time with new friends. You can make a recurring booking with the same cleaner, how nice! A one-time booking is also possible, useful if you want to try Helpling out or need a deep house cleaning once. You are not tied to anything: rescheduling or cancelling appointments is always possible. Not satisfied with your current cleaner? You can switch whenever you want!

Helpling for Expats

How clean is your house? Helpling would like to help you to keep it clean! This gives you plenty of time to adjust to a different job, living area, lifestyle, language and so on. We have a Dutch saying: ‘Opgeruimd huis, opgeruimd hoofd’, which means that when your house is tidy and clean your mind is organized too. This calls for one last Dutch saying: ‘Niet geschoten is altijd mis’, which means nothing ventured, nothing gained. Try it out!

Discuss this with your cleaner before the cleaner starts.
