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 →

We need you to refer us.

Hammer and Mop is a premium cleaning company, and we started three years back from scratch. By the term ‘scratch’, we mean that we started without knowing anything about the business we were getting into. However, there was a keen desire to learn and do some real good for you (the patrons).

Is Hammer and Mop a Million Dollar Idea?

Sri Varshan was kind enough to ask us this question recently. He has launched the Million Dollar Ideas platform to enable storytellers like us to share what got us started and what kept us going.

Why Cleaning is a Beautiful Business

A business is a mere commercial transaction between two parties. Organizations which harness the capability to add beauty to it end up creating promising experiences for customers, leading to a generous amount of ‘stickiness’ (also known as customer loyalty). Not unlike a lump of clay, the team behind every organization decides what shape to assign to the clay’s brilliance. It… Read more →

After Party Cleanups and The Asian Age

At Hammer and Mop, we’re a simple lot. Our days are usually made with a customer’s smile, a happy email, a fulfilling cleanup and a media feature! Our Wednesday was made pretty awesome by an amazing feature on our After Party Cleanups by The Asian Age, who wrote about us in their Mumbai supplement. What are After Party Cleanups?

Bangalore Mirror Being Awesome!

Last week, we were pleasantly surprised when Sowmya Rajaram from Bangalore Mirror got in touch for some questions on keeping our homes sparkling clean. Cleaning is therapeutic, and an activity that can be broken down into smaller units so it doesn’t overwhelm. Though the presence of professional (and premium) cleaning services (us!) helps in monthly/bimonthly sessions, daily upkeep is something… Read more →

Hammer and Mop is on Haptik!

Termed as ‘Whatsapp for service providers’, Haptik is here to revolutionize the way customers interact with the service providers they work with.

Sushrut accesses this channel, and we’re available for… Read more →

It turns 3 very soon. What we do, where we’ve been. We offer premium and professional cleaning services to homes and offices across Mumbai, and… Read more →
