Tips for Creating an On-Demand House Cleaning App

To create an on-demand house cleaning app, it’s important to consider customer convenience and offer multiple choices and easy navigation in addition to a secure and quick payment gateway.

Did you know that 86.5 million Americans have used an on-demand service? Did you know that 22.4 million users annually spend around $57.6 billion on the on-demand services?

No doubt, the shift from traditional business models to an on-demand economy has been a rapid one. Companies like Uber and Airbnb offered a solid foundation to this model with Uber moving from on-demand ride-sharing app services to on-demand grocery delivery and house cleaning app services.

Taking into consideration the success of these services, many companies are connecting with the top mobile app development agencies to offer on-demand services via apps. If you’re one of them and have done your basic market research, have analyzed the market demand, and are now on the path to create an on-demand house cleaning service app like Uber, here are a few tips for you:

1. Offer Multiple Options: It’s imperative to offer multiple options to the users to choose from, covering most of their pain points. A house cleaning app should include home and commercial cleaning options and should include plumbing, electrical, furniture assembly, handyman service, and other related services. The app should offer customized services offering a range of selective service options to complete house-cleaning packages.

2. Add Features that Offer Convenience: Make sure to include additional features in your app that can enhance UX multiple times. Features like search options, in-app chat, real-time tracking, cleaner’s job history and details, time and date selections, ratings and reviews, easy cancelation options, locating nearby services, and adding filters can make your app highly functional and convenient to use.

3. Ensure Easy Navigation: This is the key to getting into the customers’ good books. Despite multiple options and convenient features, a user may get turned off if the app they just downloaded looks complex and cluttered. Hence, the app UI should be simple, clean, and intuitive, displaying features consistently and aptly. Options like book now, advance booking, schedule it for later and cancelations must be readily accessible.

4. Offer a Seamless and Secure Payment Gateway: It is important to ensure a safe and secure payment gateway that can flawlessly link user’s debit or credit cards or other payment options like Paypal and Stripe to pay for the services demanded. Promo codes, if offered, must be easily applicable. Payment options should be fast and simple ensuring quick transactions.

So, once you’ve browsed through the above tips, and planned the development of your maid service app similar to the Uber app for house cleaning, it is time to discuss the pointers with your app development company and take things further.

However, if you’re not sure how far this on-demand fad is going to stay, it looks as if it will continue for years to come. The simple logic is that it’s not merely about technology, rather it’s about resolving customer problems in an efficient way. So, take a leap of faith and use this opportunity to launch your on-demand app and create a comfortable niche before your competition does so.

Conclusion

Apps like Uber for house chores and Airbnb have transformed the traditional business models, heralding an era of on-demand services. If you’re on the journey to craft an on-demand app for your services, a good idea is to start by offering multiple choices to the customers related to your product, adding extra features that offer convenience, ensuring easy app navigation and offering a seamless payment gateway.
