After seeing a gap in the Singapore market for professional, managed domestic cleaning, Angie Koh founded Amahs On Wheels two decades ago.
“Our training philosophy, and housekeeping methodology and programme have gained recognition as ‘best practices’ in the service industry,” shares Angie, who is the company’s director and one of our hand-picked #FinderSGFaves
“Our unofficial company motto is the same as The Ritz-Carlton’s: ‘We are ladies and gentlemen, serving ladies and gentlemen’,” says Angie, who credits “people” as the secret to the company’s continued success. In addition, she is proud to note that many members on her team have been with the company for more than 10 years. “We have also quite a number of customers who are still with us after 10 years,” she says.
Why is the following so loyal? One big reason: Amahs On Wheels carefully assigns its amahs, or housekeepers, to customers. Once you select its contract cleaning service, you’ll receive the same professional team every week or month – avoiding the hassle of trying out new cleaners every time, and building trust between you and your go-to Amahs.
The team members themselves are purposefully selected and highly trained, too. “One hundred percent of our local employees are trained under the Environmental Cleaning Workforce Skills Qualifications framework,” ensures Angie.
So, what is an Amahs On Wheels contract cleaning session like? The team – comprised of one to two maids – will arrive punctually. Each regular session covers general cleaning and ironing as well as ad-hoc services such as window and ceiling fan cleaning. Amahs On Wheels even provides its own cleaning supplies and products, chosen for both efficacy and ecoconsciousness. (Fun fact: Amahs On Wheels’ products are so popular, they are for sale in its online Amah’s Shop!)
Should you have need of customised cleaning options, Amahs On Wheels is happy to provide a bevy of services from mattress and upholstery cleaning, to floor polishing, dry cleaning, spring cleaning, office cleaning and more. On top of this, its responsible housekeepers can handle pet or house sitting, if you plan to be out of town for a few days.
