"BidMyCleaning Helps You Find a Cleaner Cleaner"
BidMyCleaning is a startup celebrating their one-year anniversary this month. The service is basically a marketplace which brings together those seeking cleaning services and those providing cleaning services.
BidMyCleaning reminds me of two of my favorite web services - eMove and ZocDoc. Back in the days when I had money, I had a cleaning person come about once a month. It took several trials before I found a person/team that did a good job.
The service is simple to use - you enter your location and what type of cleaning you are seeking (move in, regular, heavy, etc.). From there you are presented with a list of cleaners and their bids (see example below). You can see reviews and ratings for each cleaning service. From there you select a time using their very slick calendar app. Then you pay using Paypal/credit card and the appointment is confirmed.

The site is touted as a "one-stop-shop" for all of your cleaning services needs where you can bid, screen, select, schedule, rate and even pay for those services online. Along with a nice dashboard, there is a Cleaning Calculator which records all of the details of your home or office and then provides specific quotes back to you on your job requests.
One thing that stood out was their resources section that provided information about green cleaning. I could not determine if there were any service providers listed that offered "green cleaning" but if there was, that would be an interesting competitive advantage.
