Cleaning up after a big night is always the ultimate downside to any party, but fortunately for those who might be a little under the weather, help is at hand.

An accountant by day, Hangover Helpers founder James Hookway moonlights as a cleaner on the weekends – but with a significant point of difference.

As well as making sure your house is spic and span, no matter what your mates have done to it, Hangover Helpers will also bring you breakfast, to make sure you get back on your feet with as little fuss as possible.

Cleaning services on offer include deep scrubs of kitchens, bathrooms and toilets, while Hangover Helpers will pack away any hired glassware, and even take away the rubbish.

Mr Hookway said he came up with the idea with his wife, while hungover, earlier this year.

“We’d had a bit of a party and we thought ‘how good would it be if someone could come and clean up our house and bring us breakfast?’” Mr Hookway said.

“It was sort of a pipe dream but it developed from there.”

Mr Hookway said Hangover Helpers provided two breakfast options – green or greasy – as well as a range of drinks, including green smoothies, iced coffee or fresh juice.

He said he’d been surprised about the strong response since launching the business in early June.

“We’ve had over 1,000 followers on Facebook; bookings are coming in … and it’s not just house parties, sporting clubs are enquiring as well,” Mr Hookway said.

Once established in Perth, Mr Hookway said the ultimate goal would be franchising the business to other states.

“We really want to build up a strong reputation in the Perth area, but it’s definitely something you could franchise to other capitals,” he said.

STANDING BY BUSINESS. TRUSTED BY BUSINESS.
