When Amazon introduced a smart lock that could unlock the door for house cleaners, we knew it wouldn’t be long before they introduced their own home cleaning service. Amazon is now testing their own home cleaning service.
Amazon Home Assistants is a program currently being tested in Seattle that allows Amazon customers to hire an assistant to perform chores around the house. This includes typical home-cleaning services, but could also expand to other chores. Already, Home Assistants can fold your laundry, if you’d rather not.
The price of the service varies depending on the size of your home, naturally. As a reference point, Amazon says that a weekly cleaning for a 1,500 square foot home would cost $156. All the tasks are carried out by Amazon employees who have undergone background checks and (where necessary) been licensed to carry out the work they’re doing.
If you have Amazon Key, you can use it to let the cleaners into your home, but use of the smart lock isn’t required to make use of the service. Living in Seattle, however, is required. For right now the company is only testing the service in its home state. The company hasn’t announced plans to roll it out to a wider audience just yet, but given the obvious path Amazon’s taking to providing all of your home needs, it seems like it’s only a matter of time.
