This is key for the “gig economy”. To scale well, it’s easier with a fungible service, like taxis. Cleaning services are actually better when they are non-fungible since the same cleaner will get to know your home and your idiosyncrasies. That effectively reduces supply for any given customer, which becomes problematic.
