Fuss.sg focused on cleaning

Fuss.sg was set up in March last year and was one of the first homegrown portals to feature an automated booking system and online payment.

Customers using Fuss.sg input their location and preferred timing into the portal, and can choose to add on extra services such as cleaning of refrigerators and ironing. A cleaner will then be automatically assigned to the job.

Unlike some other home-service marketplaces that diversify into other jobs such as handyman repairs or baby-sitting, Fuss.sg is focused solely on cleaning.

Mr Nathaniel Tan, CEO of Fuss.sg, said: "We don't focus on having many services, as then you're just becoming another Yellow Pages. For us, it's really about finding an area of expertise - cleaning - and trying to enhance the experience."

Hence, Fuss.sg decided to delve deeper into cleaning. A few months ago, it rolled out FussPro, which provides more in-depth, specialised services such as carpet and upholstery cleaning.

Fuss.sg is set to expand regionally, and will be launched in Hong Kong by the end of August this year, said Mr Tan.
