Homejoy was an online platform connecting professional cleaners with clients. Sister and brother Adora and Aaron Cheung started Homejoy in 2012 because they couldn’t find a convenient and affordable cleaning service for their own home. Homejoy had been available in more than 30 cities in North America and Europe. Although primarily offering house cleaning services, some locations offered handyman, plumbing, electrical and carpet cleaning services. The service shut down on July 31, 2015, after attempts to raise money failed and talks of an acquisition petered out.
