How would you describe Slate to a friend at a dinner table?

Someone comes to your house twice a week for an hour and tidies up your apartment for $60. It’s so nice coming home and having everything clean.

In five words or less, how is your life better by using slate?

Clean apartment = happy wife

When you were considering signing up, did you have any hesitations? How did you overcome them?

I didn’t really hesitate to sign up bc the service sounded like something I needed.

How were you keeping your home clean before Slate? What was not working well?

I had a cleaning woman that would come once a week or ever two weeks. She wasn’t reliable or friendly. There was too much of a headache.

What are the two most important things your Keeper does every day?

Puts away laundry and changes the douvet cover

How would you sell Slate to someone who is on the fence?

You have better things to do than clean your home or worry about managing someone else who is cleaning your home. Having an app that allows you to quickly shoot off instructions or pause a week or see what supplies are needed is a no brainer. Coming home on tuesdays and Thursdays is the beat part of my week.

It's like a hotel maid service who comes 3 or 5 times a week

In five words or less, how is your life better by using slate?

clean. simple. easy.

When you were considering signing up, did you have any hesitations? How did you overcome them?

yes, i wasn't sure if she would do a good enough clean as my weekly person.

How were you keeping your home clean before Slate? What was not working well?

weekly or bi weekly cleaning lady. this is better because it keeps everything tidy every day.

What are the two most important things your Keeper does every day?

make the bed, clean bathroom and take out trash. vacuum and dust too!

How would you sell Slate to someone who is on the fence?

How would you describe Slate to a friend at a dinner table?

Housekeeper that comes daily

In five words or less, how is your life better by using slate?

Less clutter, clean home

When you were considering signing up, did you have any hesitations? How did you overcome them?

Concerns regarding price (not that much more than weekly) and how much they could get done in an hour (figured we'd try it and see).

How were you keeping your home clean before Slate? What was not working well?

Housekeeper weekly. Things would get messy between visits.

What are the two most important things your Keeper does every day?

Tidy up and take out trash

How would you sell Slate to someone who is on the fence?

It's a consistently clean home for not much more than a weekly clean home.

How would you describe Slate to a friend at a dinner table?

Slate is a wonderful house-keeping service that gives me peace of mind that no matter how hectic my life gets, my apartment will remain a space of calm and order. I still feel a sense of surprise and delight walking into a freshly cleaned home because the Slate house keepers do such a thorough job!

In five words or less, how is your life better by using slate?

As a New Yorker - my apartment is a haven from the chaos and over-stimulation of the city - and Slate makes sure that I have peace of mind that my home remain clean even when the clutter of life outside gets in the way.

When you were considering signing up, did you have any hesitations? How did you overcome them?

I was concerned about the expensive. It is much more than other services in NYK (at least the daily service is, the deep cleaning is comparable).

How were you keeping your home clean before Slate? What was not working well?

I was using Handy. I found that depending on the cleaner - the level of tidiness varied tremendously. Slate is much more consistent and I like having one continuous cleaner.

What are the two most important things your Keeper does every day?

Clean the kitchen and vacuum the living room!

How would you sell Slate to someone who is on the fence?

Given that you have a consistent cleaner who can cater to your needs (in my case hand wash clothing, water the plants, etc) - it becomes worth the expense because it goes beyond the normal surface clean that most house keeping companies provide.

How would you describe Slate to a friend at a dinner table?

I live a busy life, and for about $25 a day, it makes my busy life easier. My helper does basic cleaning every day, hangs / puts my laundry away, and the other things I hate doing.

In five words or less, how is your life better by using slate?

It makes me appear organized.

When you were considering signing up, did you have any hesitations? How did you overcome them?

I didn't expect to continue with it after the trial period, but it was so nice being able to leave a bit of a mess in the morning and to come home to it looking great!

How were you keeping your home clean before Slate? What was not working well?

Weekly or Biweekly cleaning service. It was working but this is better because it keeps it always presentable.

What are the two most important things your Keeper does every day?

Makes the bed, puts things I left out away!

How would you sell Slate to someone who is on the fence?

Its like being in a hotel.

How would you describe Slate to a friend at a dinner table?

I am a mom of 2 and to be able to not have to worry about cleaning up their breakfast mess and to be able to scoot them straight to the park after is great. I come home and the sink is empty, the dining table is spotless. Before Slate my floors were disgusting because I have a cleaner come once a week, but there are so many crumbs, etc all over because of the kids. And now it doesn't bother me when the kids eat food off the floor :) And it feels like such a luxury to go to bed every night in a nicely made bed. We are so fancy now!

In five words or less, how is your life better by using slate?

More "me" time

When you were considering signing up, did you have any hesitations? How did you overcome them?

I just gave the 1 or 2 week trial a shot and figured I could cancel if it wasn't working out. I didn't have many hesitations because the service sounded awesome.

How were you keeping your home clean before Slate? What was not working well?

Once a week cleaner. I spent a lot of time cleaning up after meals and doing dishes. There was pretty much crumbs on the floor all the time and my bed was never made.

What are the two most important things your Keeper does every day?

Floors and Countertops (and bed and dishes!!!)

How would you sell Slate to someone who is on the fence?

Just try it for 1 week. We are so lucky to live in NYC where this service is available.
