There are more and more apps these days that help you book part-time help around the house.
But if the thought of opening up your home or exposing your children to a complete stranger makes you uncomfortable, DomesticONE might just offer a better solution.
In business for a decade, DomesticONE is a credible name known for its thorough recruitment strategy that has satisfied many a customer.
Each domestic helper the business hires must be interviewed, screened and tested prior to being assigned to a customer.
Selected candidates who join DomesticONE undergo a two-day training programme with the company’s job supervisor. Elements of the training include: methods of cleaning and cleansers to use on different surfaces and areas, safety must-dos when cleaning windows or spaces at great height as well as the proper code of conduct in a client’s home.
Each domestic helper is also insured, so you don’t have to worry about any disputes or claims if she injures herself on the job.
A personal touch
Most online part-time helper services assign you a random candidate, but DomesticONE offers an easy matching service so you are assigned a helper who truly fits your needs.
Speak to a DomesticONE consultant first to share your requirements, and the company will do the rest.
In the event that the part-time domestic helper doesn’t meet your expectations, offer DomesticONE your feedback. The team will take your views into consideration and investigate the matter to get to the root of the issue at hand before proposing a solution.
Alternatively, you can request an interview session with the proposed helper at your residence prior to confirming her. A small transport fee applies but this will be waived once you’ve officially hired the domestic helper.
Bonus: DomesticONE’s service is islandwide, covering areas like Jurong and Sentosa Island.
Pick a package
DomesticONE offers six main services: part-time helpers, pre- and post-moving cleaning, post-renovation cleaning, spring cleaning, regular office cleaning and other ad hoc cleaning services.
Those looking for flexibility can ask for a customised service package, which can be mapped out with your consultant.
You will be charged a one-time registration fee, depending on the frequency and number of additional services you top up on your package.
You will need to provide the helper with the necessary cleaning tools and supplies for weekly cleaning services. But if you’ve engaged a DomesticONE helper to do a one-off deep cleaning session, the helper will come with her own set of tools and supplies.
No Cash? No Problem!
So you forgot to make a bank run and don’t have enough to pay the helper.
DomesticONE makes transactions an absolute breeze, thanks to its online payment method. This means you don’t have to worry about missing a payment.
Want to gift your helper personally? A small hongbao (red packet) or a box of cookies will do the trick.
