Who we are and how it all got started.

SweepSouth Team

The SweepSouth Story

In founding SweepSouth, our aim was to modernise home services and to be the African pioneers in bringing technology to the industry. With over three thousand cleaners, and thousands of satisfied customers being served monthly, we're just getting started.

The idea for SweepSouth came in December 2013 when husband and wife team Alen Ribic and Aisha R. Pandor struggled to find a part-time domestic cleaner over the holidays. The aim was to make getting your home cleaned, at short notice, a hassle-free experience. SweepSouth currently operates in most areas of Cape Town, Johannesburg, Durban, Centurion and Pretoria and will be expanding into other regions soon.
