Getting reliable domestic service can be difficult – not every one can clean or fix or stuff just the way you like. At least, I know particular about my floors and windows. Then there’s the case of that one person you finally make your “customer” who decides you need them more than they need you.

The folks over at SafiSafi know all about this struggle and that’s why they decided to launch their on-demand domestic service. SafiSafi is an “Uber for domestic services” and what it does is make hiring domestic staff (cleaning, fixing or whatever) easier for the people of Kenya.

With rates starting from KES300 per hour, SafiSafi provides cleaning, handyman, plumbing and electrical services. How it works is; you book a service, fix a time, make a payment, and wait for your service provider to arrive. All SafiSafi professionals are vetted afterwhich they undergo “vigorous training to ensure that we deliver a standardized quality service that we would expect ourselves”.

Co-founder Jay Shah believes SafiSafi can change the way Kenyans hire domestic staff. In his words, “We hope to end those hazardous days of getting fundi numbers from wooden advertising sign posts.” (And here I was thinking that was just a Nigerian thing)

SafiSafi launched recently and word is, you get KES300 off your first order.
