WVU Alumni Launches New 'ChoreDoor' Web Business

Posted: Updated:

It's about that time of year again; time to rake the leaves, hang up the holiday decorations, and shop for presents, and if you need some help, you'll find it online.

ChoreDoor.com is based in Morgantown. It links users' chores and odd-jobs with professionals and do-it-yourselfers.

There are two types on the website; Chore Posters and ChoreDoor Members. Chore Posters are people or businesses who need a chore, task, errand, odd job, etc. to be completed. ChoreDoor Members are businesses, licensed professionals, and do-it-yourselfers who have the opportunity to view, communicate, and bid on those chores, tasks, errands or odd jobs that are published by Chore Posters within their community, according to ChoreDoor. 

It's free to post and the West Virginia University alum who started it said the idea came from his community.

"Everyone was looking for a house cleaner, or looking for someone to walk their dog, or fix roofs, or doing. They're always asking about references. They're looking for people to do these jobs, and I said wouldn't it be nice to just go online and post these jobs," said John Terneus, of ChoreDoor.com.

ChoreDoor.com said it doesn't allow just anyone to perform the work for Chore Posters, and said a five-star rating system that all ChoreDoor Member are subjected to. Chore Posters will also rate the level of effort of a ChoreDoor Member after a job is completed. Officials said members must maintain at least a three-star rating to continue doing business on the website.
