Cleaning service batmaid

This is weird but interesting. I just got the usual newsletter from the Migros Le Shop saying their new partner is Batmaid. I hadn't heard if it. It is a cleaning service run on a virtual coin/credit system. I can't see how much the real cost is though. Has anyone heard of it?

Re: Cleaning service batmaid

They're doing a lot of promotion just lately. They were in Basel SBB the other eveneing giving out flyers and pan-scrubbers.

Cost seems to be 34 CHF/Hr for regular cleaning or 37 CHF for a one-off (plus provide your own cleaning material in both cases).

I really can't get the image of somebody cleaning your place while dressed in a Batsuit out of my head.

Ah. Varies by area then. Makes sense, I suppose.

This is so cool, do you know other similar services, how they do compare/stack to each other?

Thanks!

Re: Cleaning service batmaid

I don't know much about cleaning services. Various people I know have a cleaner that comes in once or twice a week on a private contract. I have also see vans around with company names that do concierge cleaning work for buildings. The bat concept thing struck me as being interesting on a one off or occasional assistance when someone's ill, pregnant or otherwise incapacitated on a short-term basis like after an operation, or for those who don't want to mess around with contracts, insurance etc. as the company takes care of it. I assume it costs less to have a private person on a cash basis as opposed to a company with overheads.
I imagine the only concept change from a standard cleaning company is updated technology with a pretty website & online payments and the scale of what they're aiming for being all around Switzerland.
