About company:

We provide a convenient way to book home cleaning services online from a phone, tablet or computer, connecting clients to cleaners in minutes. By bringing technology into the process, we aim to modernise the domestic cleaning services industry. The idea for SweepSouth came in December 2013 when husband and wife team Alen Ribic and Aisha R. Pandor struggled to find a part-time domestic cleaner over the holidays. The aim was to make getting your home cleaned, at short notice, a hassle-free experience. SweepSouth currently operates in most areas of Cape Town, Johannesburg, Centurion and Pretoria and will be expanding into other regions soon. SweepSouth was awarded first place in the SiMODiSA Startup South Africa pitching competition, and was the first South African company to be included in the 500 Startups Accelerator.
