The Domestly app (available on Android and iPhone) allows users to browse profiles of available professional cleaners in their area and then book and pay for the service. Whether it’s spring cleaning, the aftermath of ‘that’ dinner party, the days’ notice you receive from unexpected houseguests or whenever you just need an extra ‘pair of hands’, Domestly can assist by connecting busy people to reliable cleaning professionals.
Having recently scooped the Best Consumer App and 2016 MTN App of the Year Award from over 450 entries, Domestly promises a stress-free experience. The MTN App Awards celebrate out-of-the-box thinkers that provide real solutions for real world problems.
The service provides piece of mind by offering the opportunity to find a reliable cleaner without worrying about long term contracts. Users can view in-depth profiles of each cleaner, who have all been vetted, that include ratings and reviews from previous customers. Once a preferred profile has been found, users are able to book a date and time that is convenient for both parties.

Domestly co-founders, Thatoyoana Marumo and Berno Potgieter, pride themselves on having developed a service that encourages and empowers an entrepreneurial environment specifically for unemployed or underemployed South African women. Domestly provides an uplifting and empowering opportunity for its professional cleaners to control their earning potential by setting their own rates and managing their diaries.
Domestly was launched in Cape Town towards the end of 2015 and has since facilitated the creation of over 600 sustainable jobs with this number growing steadily as the footprint of the app extends. Within the next year, Domestly has forecasted bringing an additional 1500 professional cleaners on board.
To date, the app has expanded its service from Cape Town to include Johannesburg North (Rosebank, Fourways and Sandton) with near-future plans to become available in Pretoria, Midrand and Centurion followed by KwaZulu-Natal by the end of the year.
The Domestly app is free to download for both user and cleaner or cleaning company. All payments for services are handled within the app via credit card as well as an option to pay by EFT.
