Three steps to a clean home + WIN 3-hour cleaning vouchers from Helpling, Dubai

Perhaps one of the first things I would ask for if found a magic lamp would be to freed of my cleaning duties! Washing, cleaning, mopping, and dusting aren't exactly the most fun tasks to do - and in a sandy city like Dubai, you can't avoid it. We were recently hit by a sandstorm in the UAE, and I wasn't looking forward to cleaning up its aftermath. Luckily, I was given an opportunity to try out an online cleaning service company called Helpling.

Win TWO 3-hour CLEANING VOUCHERS worth AED 105 each!]

While the company is not a cleaning service provider itself, it facilitates the process of finding a good cleaning company for your home. For a fixed rate of AED 35 per hour, it finds the best match for you based on your requirements. All cleaning companies and staff are verified by Helping, so you don't have to worry about their reliability and efficiency.

I made an online booking to have my home cleaned. I had to provide details such as location, services required, etc. They require you to enter credit card details, but no amount will be charged without your consent. You also need to create an account to make a booking.

The minimum booking you need to make it three hours, and at the time I felt it was too long for my one-bedroom apartment. I was wrong, and I'll tell you why in a little while!

I received a call confirming my booking, and I was told that I would be informed when a cleaning company was found for me. I received these details the next day, and I was given information on the company which would be providing cleaners for my home. Instead of a three-hour cleaning with one maid, I would be provided with two maids who would do the work in 1.5 hours. This seemed good enough for me, so I agreed.

On the appointed date, two uniformed ladies, Lenny and Maru, were at my doorstep within the time they were expected. They got to work instantly, not wasting a minute. I had kept my supplies ready, as Helpling requires you to provide your own. They spent close to an hour thoroughly cleaning my kitchen and washroom. I was impressed with how efficient they were with the cleaning.

With an hour and half, they had cleaned my whole house and it was spotless! It was then that I realized why three hours is minimum for a cleaning. Even for a home as small as mine, it was just the amount of time needed for a top to bottom cleaning job.

These are the things I liked best about Helpling's service:

- It's very easy to book, and the follow up is constant. You will even be asked to rate your experience once it's done.

- The maids were on time and very efficient.

- I had informed Helpling that I wanted extra cleaning in my kitchen, and I guess the maids were passed on this information since they did a good job there.

- For a total amount of AED 105, I felt that the value provided is quite good because the maids are professional and know exactly what to do.

Of course, there are many companies that Helpling had tied up with, so I can truly only comment on the one which served me. But Helpling promises the highest standards of service through a strict screening process, so if you are not happy with your cleaning company, you may even be provided with a re-cleaning.
