A new website lets you click on the service you need, whether its plumbing, electricity repair or carpentry, choose the time that suits you and they'll send over a vetted professional.
Fixing things in your house in Cairo can be quite the nightmare. It often feels like you have to know someone, who knows someone, who has a cousin whose neighbour is a sabak and if you can get through to him, he will then ignore your request for home assistance and either not turn up or turn up randomly on a different day all together by which point you have adapted to not having hot water, or have decided moving house might be an easier option then unblocking the toilet.
Thankfully, we stumbled upon FilKhedma.com which is finally providing a simple and well-vetted professional services for all things house maintenance and that includes plumbing, electricity repair, carpentry and satellite dish technicians. They're claim is they also hire the best technicians in each field, as profiled on their website, smiling with their manly mustaches, like a Match.com for house repair.
Qualified individuals in these fields are hard to come by so this is great news, meaning you can say goodbye to finding paint over your light switches, your light switches actually working, a TV with all the good channels and that custom made bed-side table you've always wanted.
The best part is the maintenance request service is a quick and easy process on the website, perfect for any overwhelmed khawaga. You just click on the type of repair you want, and then choose a time that suits you best. The prices are competitive too, ranging from 30 to 100 LE for basic repairs.
