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.
