TaskRabbit at a Glance
Cleaning Services Offered
TaskRabbit brokers residential house cleaning tasks similar to the way a dating app is set up. Users pick a task and are presented with a choice of 'taskers.' All of the details, including user rating and price, are displayed, so you can make an informed choice. The cleaning services available through TaskRabbit are:
- Basic House Cleaning
Basic cleaning services are ideal for routinely scheduled, repeat cleaning. This type of cleaning involves general tidying and light cleaning. TaskRabbit outlines exactly what to expect:
In bedrooms and common areas, surfaces will be wiped, floors cleaned, and trash removed.
In bathrooms, showers and baths will be thoroughly cleaned, toilets wiped and scrubbed, and all surfaces including the mirror wiped down. The floors are also cleaned.
In the kitchen, you can expect dishes to be washed and dishwashers emptied, all surfaces and appliances wiped down, and the floors cleaned.
- Deep Cleaning
If what is included in basic house cleaning isn’t enough, TaskRabbit house cleaning pros are available for deep cleaning. This might include windows, inside appliances and cupboards, or laundry.
- Move Out Cleaning
Many renters’ agreements include a requirement to leave the space clean and in good shape. TaskRabbit network professionals can save you time and hassle by taking care of end of lease cleaning.
- Move In Cleaning
Before you move into a new house, make sure it's spotless by hiring a Tasker to give it a thorough cleaning.
- Vacation Rental Cleaning
This type of house cleaning service is ideal for Airbnb tenants who need to leave their vacation rental tidy but don’t want to deal with it on their own. TaskRabbit affiliated house cleaners are located everywhere, just open the app and find a Tasker near you.
- Spring Cleaning
This cleaning service is great for individuals prone to allergens, such as pollen and dust.
- One Time Cleaning
TaskRabbit is convenient to book for repeat cleaning or for a one-time gig. If all you need is to get your home in order so that you can keep up, this is a great service.
In addition, Taskers are available for a range of individual tasks. Since each house cleaning professional decides on their own pricing, you’ll need to scroll through available pros to get an idea of what is on offer and what it will cost.
Equipment and Supplies
TaskRabbit house cleaning professionals can be chosen according to your individual preferences. If you want them to bring all the supplies, just make a note in the task description, and your cleaner will bring everything needed. If, on the other hand, you'd prefer to choose the products (for example, if you want chemical-free or eco-friendly cleaning supplies), then just let the Tasker know.
Unlike house cleaning services, TaskRabbit’s pricing is determined by the individual Tasker on the platform. While the site estimates that cleaning will cost around $30 per hour, you will likely be able to find house cleaning professionals in your area at a lower rate. In addition, when you view a Tasker’s profile, you will be able to see their pricing for all tasks that they provide. This way, if there are other things you need done around the house, you will be able to hire one person for multiple jobs and know what the final cost will be. Although the site doesn’t have comprehensive pricing charts, the transparent system of selecting house cleaning professionals means you won’t have any unexpected expenses.
Another benefit of TaskRabbit's pricing is that you don't have to pay until the work is done, and any balances can be paid securely through the app.
“Heavy scrubdown" didn't really describe what needed to be done. "Heavy, heavy" would have been more accurate. Steffi met the challenge in the time allotted and my space feels and looks so much better. Also appreciate Steffi's punctuality!” – Dean C.
“I had out of town guests coming in and was scrambling to get things ready, and Luca saved the day! She showed up right on time, worked fast and efficiently, and left my place sparkling clean. I'll definitely be contacting her the next time my place needs some shine.” – Sacha W.
“Adam did a fantastic job! My bathroom and kitchen are sparkling now. Thanks Adam!” – Victoria M.
TaskRabbit is a matching service and does not guarantee the work performed by contractors. However, it does offer mediation and conflict settlement if a dispute arises between 2 parties using its platform. Some house cleaning service providers may offer guarantees. If so, this will be detailed on their profile.
Other Services Offered
TaskRabbit is a disruptive digital marketplace for freelance home improvement contractors who are available for nearly any task or chore. Taskers are rated by other users, so you can pick the best person for the job while freeing up valuable time you would otherwise be spending on errands. Once you are on the app, you can find same-day help from skilled and pre-screened professionals in your area.
Finding house cleaning help is easy with TaskRabbit’s free-to-use digital platform. Just describe the task that you need taken care of and scroll through available Taskers until you find the right fit. All network professionals, or Taskers, will display their rates and tasks, along with their user rating. This transparency helps users find the best pro for their house cleaning needs, so they can get back to doing things other than cleaning.
