The Sweet Email from Ms. Gardner-Smith

Oh the joy of childhood, and the games we used to play. The fun of being able to guess whose warm hands those are, and turning around to see the beloved grin of a dear one. Our patrons offer us this happiness with pleasant surprises – in form of smiles, testimonials and sweet emails. Ms. Gardner-Smith has been one of… Read more →

Happy Cleanups for Rashesh Shah

We used to think that celebrities are super humans. Well, after serving them for close to 3 years we know for sure that they are humans. Super smart, highly intelligent, downright humble – and still, humans; with families and some odd stains in the kitchen and moving homes every now and then, and facing the same niggles all of us… Read more →

Hammer and Mop shares a super blush worthy moment when Shamita Singha asked us what paint would work best for her home.

Helping Shamita Keep Her Walls Clean

“Which paint would help my white walls stay clean?”, asked Shamita Singha. She has been our patron since last year and we were happy she thought we’d know. Well, we did and thus helped her figure out what would work best. Royale works best since it is water-based, and offers a coating which can be quite easily cleaned by soap… Read more →

Office HQ - April 2015

Mega Cleanup for TeamMissMalini HQ

It has always been a pleasure helping MissMalini move in since 2012. It’s super to see them move into bigger offices too. Our dear patrons and evangelists right from the early days, that they are. We remember the first cleanup, and we were late! She wasn’t too pleased and it was quite understandable. Thankfully, the session was smooth and she was… Read more →

Making ‘White Turtle Studios’ Whiter

We are humans too, and we make mistakes. Professionalism in the service sector is not about being 100% flawless (which is not human, which is unnatural) but accepting your mistakes and fixing them to convenience your patron. Ankit was keen to have his young studio cleaned, and we were happy to help the white turtle be whiter! However, during the… Read more →

The Wagging Tail Cleanup

The business we are in throws up unique experiences every single day. We love our patrons for being human, and are grateful when they give us a call to help them out. Ankush called us on a Sunday, and he was facing a situation. His particularly affable pet dog had hurt its tail but wagged it nonetheless with all the… Read more →

What keeps us going?

Starting up is hardly an easy thing to do, leave alone keeping at it. Through hills and glen, through dark mists and heavy showers, we have persisted and we have been resilient. But to what end? Has it been a success so far? Our patrons are pretty happy but are we? Too many questions? That’s us in a Sunday mood.… Read more →

Cleaning Rooms on Twitter

We’ve so many friends on Twitter (@hammerandmop), and we love it when we’re recommended to prospective friends! Aditi was keen on having her room cleaned, and @Trollacharya had to recommend us! He could have simply come up with a witty reply, or a question, or something that might pinpoint to the therapeutic nature of cleaning. BUT HE RECOMMENDED US! He didn’t… Read more →

A Happy Cleanup for a Loving Mum

We recently had the honor of serving Guruprasad Puranik as he coordinated a cleanup for his dear Mum staying in the city. We could understand his concerns, and communicated how thorough the job would be. The relationship of a parent and her child is a sensitive one, and even an established surgeon’s hand might shake while operating on his own… Read more →

We were glad to help our dear customers move into their new home this week, at Beaumonde Towers. The security troops were exceptionally particular, keen to hand hold… Read more →

Apart from being helpful, the therapeutic effect of cleanliness helps them cope and heals. We’re grateful for their efforts and the positive change they are leading :) Read more →

Gauri Oak - Hammer and Mop

How Gauri Oak Leads from the Top

When we sought a Stannis Baratheon to lead our operations with renewed vigor (the post highlighting the need), we hadn’t expected someone who identifies herself with Arya Stark to be so firmly at the helm in just a week’s time. Hammer and Mop was going through a certain transition at that time, and we knew that we had to find… Read more →

How Hammer and Mop Empowers

At Hammer and Mop, we are a service company hard nosed about customer expectations and experience. As a result, since we employ our teams, it is essential for us to ensure skills training and development. As we grow, strengthening our ‘supply’ side by investing in skills training and development is something we cannot do without. It has always been about… Read more →
