Press Release (ePRNews.com) - CHICAGO - Jan 18, 2019 - The Minte, the premier on-demand housekeeping service, announced today that it offers service to over 35,000 apartments across Chicago and Washington D.C. through exclusive partnerships with luxury apartments and condos.
The announcement reveals successful growth in two major markets via partnerships with some of the largest multi-family operators in the nation. Because its housekeepers are full-time, W-2 employees each assigned to a specific property, The Minte has eliminated the common issues with contractors such as inconsistent service standards and recurring no-shows. Having on-site staff also allows The Minte to offer shorter, hotel-style cleans to residents for a fraction of typical housekeeping prices. To ensure its quality of service, The Minte formed its field operations with hospitality professionals hailing from the Waldorf Astoria, Conrad Chicago, and The Dupont Circle Hotel, to name a few.
Residents at Minte-partnered properties can conveniently book through the website, the app, the Minte IoT button, or (coming Spring 2019) via their own smart home device. Housekeeping service is provided by the housekeeper assigned to the property, so residents and the property staff come to know them on a first name basis. Even if a property’s housekeeper is booked, the company’s density allows for a nearby housekeeper to service apartments as an alternate.
It is now becoming the standard for owners and operators to offer their residents hotel-style services in order to compete for renters. Benefits of Minte services include:
• Housekeepers assigned to their own buildings
• Affordable pricing and customizable options
• The ability to book services on-demand
• Eco-friendly cleaning products
• Rigorous training and quality assurance checks
“The Minte has revolutionized the housekeeping industry by blending on-demand technology and luxury service standards. Because of this success, our company now offers services to over 35,000 apartment homes in Chicago and Washington, D.C.,” said Kathleen Wilson, CEO and Founder, The Minte. “Our customers not only enjoy more time in their lives, but also enjoy the added ease of a luxury amenity – easy booking, consistent service, and a live customer service team to address any potential problems in real time.”
Building owners and operators can also build The Minte’s services into the rent and offer residents housekeeping as a standard amenity to meet renters’ growing demand for boutique services.
“Urban renters are now placing more importance on service amenities, as they’re finding great added value in getting time back in their day,” adds Wilson. “The hotel-style service makes it affordable to have your apartment maintained for you, and is not available with your traditional housekeeping models that offer only deep clean service.”
The Minte partners with Proctor & Gamble to provide safe and eco-friendly cleaning products, providing residents end-to-end peace of mind when booking its service.
