Homejoy’s “Happy App” lets users book a Homejoy cleaning in moments from the comfort of their iPhone.

SAN FRANCISCO – September 04, 2014 –  Homejoy, the home services online platform, today launched its first mobile app. Homejoy for iPhone connects users to a trusted and certified cleaning professional in a matter of minutes.  

Users simply input their needs and contact information, then select their preferred date for cleaning and instantly receive a cost estimate, based on the time required for the job.

Like the Homejoy website, the application also allows the user to specify the needs for their home including any additional tasks such as oven cleaning, laundry, or refrigerator cleaning.  The Homejoy for iPhone app is currently available for download only in the United States and Canada.

“We built Homejoy to make it easier than ever before to find cleaning professionals for your home, and we’re really excited to make it even more convenient by putting it in your pocket,” said Mark Linsey, VP of Engineering at Homejoy.
