Homejoy Inc. raised $38 million in new venture funding to sell professional home-cleaning services for $20 per hour online and via mobile app.
The San Francisco startup will offer other home-related services, from plumbers to babysitters, in the future, executives said.
The $38 million in new funding comes from a combined Series A and B round. Redpoint Ventures led the Series B investment, joined by the company’s Series A lead investors Google Ventures, First Round Capital, Max Levchin and others. A graduate of the Y Combinator accelerator, Homejoy earlier raised $2 million in seed and venture funding, bringing its total capital raised to $40 million.
