Justmop is a cleaner book­ing app where users can book a house­maid. Founders Kerem Kuyucu and Ali Ca­gatay Oz­can de­cided to build an on­line mar­ket­place for clean­ing com­pa­nies af­ter co-founder Oz­can moved to Dubai with his wife and found the clean­ing in­dus­try to be frag­mented with prob­lems in trans­parency of qual­ity, avail­abil­ity and pric­ing. The aim of the mar­ket­place was to estab­lish a fil­ter­ing sys­tem for clean­ers. Justmop is cur­rently op­er­at­ing in Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Qatar, where it pro­vides users with pre-screened and well-trained maid ser­vices.

Users can book ser­vices through the web­site and mo­bile ap­pli­ca­tions, and once a clean­ing com­pany com­pletes a ses­sion, they pay Justmop a com­mis­sion, and are ad­di­tion­ally charged a fee for Justmop’s soft­ware. So far, Justmop have served tens of thou­sands of cus­tomers, have made over a mil­lion dol­lars in gross rev­enue and are in the process of due dili­gence analysis for other po­ten­tial mar­kets, with two more coun­tries in the pipe­line. Striv­ing to be­come the go-to mar­ket­place for all clean­ing ser­vices all around GCC, Justmop have no known re­gional com­peti­tors sup­ply­ing re­li­able clean­ers, same day avail­abil­ity and 24/7 cus­tomer sup­port.

As for in­vest­ment, the self-funded startup re­cently closed a round with an undis­closed amount in De­cem­ber last year led by Nevzat Ay­din, the found­ing CEO of Ye­mek­sepeti, and with the new cap­i­tal, they plan to at­tract top ta­lent, build pro­pri­etary tech and in­ter­na­tional growth.
