Cleaning on demand
Hello busy people…so glad you are here! PINCH is the very first on demand cleaning app to hit the market! We couldn’t be more excited to share it with you and give you a reprieve from cleaning! A few years back we identified a number of challenges and inefficiencies with the way home owners and businesses book cleaning services. So we decided to fix that.
With backgrounds in Technology, Start Ups, Real Estate, Property Management, and home management, we created a tool that impacts your life in a positive way and takes some of the daily cleaning chores off of the ever growing To Do list. Keep reading!
Paving a new road
The PINCH Theory
Here at PINCH, we believed that we could build a dual sided marketplace that would allow a user to find an amazing cleaner within seconds…and build a platform for cleaners where they didn’t have to pay to get jobs. Giving everyone time back in their day to focus on other things.
Think about it. What if you could save a few hundred dollars every year on cleaning. What if you didn’t have to call a single person to get a house cleaned that you were managing. What if…in a matter of seconds, you were able to knock off another item off your task list?
In today’s over-saturated market of cleaners, it is extremely expensive and difficult for a cleaning company to promote and market themselves. With PINCH, cleaners are able to accept real paying jobs without a single marketing expense. This strategy helps everyone. Cleaners are willing to take a lower rate on the job because they have no marketing expenses and customers gain the benefit of always having cleaning resources available at below market prices.
With PINCH it’s a win-win!
