Growing condominium lifestyle boosts demand for cleaning services

Font Size

THE RISE of condo living, fast-paced lifestyle, and online vacation home rentals has prompted strong demand for outsourced house cleaning services in Cebu. Cleanmate Solutions Inc. Chief Executive Officer Azela Honor said what primarily drives the company’s growth is the rising ownership of condominium units used either as residence or for rental. “Most of our buyers or at least 70% of them are working or living abroad or not from Cebu, usually they ask us [agents/brokers] to find people to clean their units. The demand is strong now,” she said in an interview. The company, a subsidiary of all-in-one real estate solutions provider Filipino Homes, was primarily created to support the after-sales need of buyers. But their cleaning services has now expanded to home owners in high-end subdivisions, industrial companies, and offices. Launched last March, Cleanmate Solutions has over 20 accredited cleaners. Service rates are based on a per square meter area. Ms. Honor said they have invested in high-end cleaning equipment and use high-quality cleaning solutions. Ms. Honor said they are now planning to open branches in other major cities such as Iloilo in Western Visayas, Cagayan de Oro in Northern Mindanao, and Davao City in the southern part of Mindanao. — The Freeman
