Customers in the city can now book cleaners, known as SweepStars, easily and conveniently via the web or through its recently launched apps.
“Expanding to Durban has been on the books from the get-go, and we’ve been working hard behind the scenes to interview and register a top quality team of local cleaners – or, as we call them, SweepStars,” said Aisha Pandor, SweepSouth CEO.
The launch brings to five the number of cities where SweepSouth operates – Jo’burg, Pretoria, Cape Town and Centurion are the other cities.
Launched in 2014, SweepSouth’s mission is to bring technology to the domestic services industry and take the pain out of booking a domestic cleaner.
Since launch, the startup claims to have created thousands of job opportunities, especially for women, which has resulted in over 100,000 hours of cleaning.
“By tapping into new markets and empowering cleaners to take on multiple or supplementary jobs, we are facilitating the employment of more people, in far less time, at a higher wage,” Pandor added.
