Do I need to rent from TIDY?

Last updated 10 months ago

No, many successful TIDY Homekeepers use their own equipment. Clients do expect that you will arrive prepared with enough supplies to do a proper cleaning.

Clients generally expect, at the minimum, that you have the following items to be considered a well-prepared Homekeeper on the TIDY platform:

  • Vacuum cleaner
  • Mop/Swiffer
  • Surface cleaning cloths or paper towels
  • Toilet brush
  • Toilet bowl cleaning solution
  • Window/glass cleaning solution
  • All purpose cleaning solution
Clients are told that the materials you bring are green, non-toxic, and include an electric vacuum. Ultimately you decide what equipment to bring to the home. You do not need to certify any equipment, but TIDY only covers damage caused by certified equipment.

We only certify equipment that scores a C or higher on the Environmental Working Groups (EWG) ratings OR has been tested by TIDY. See to confirm if your cleaner is generally considered safe and green by the EWG.
