Some of the Great Cleaners
Available in Barnes

  • Musa

    "Our first time having Musa visit for our cleaning and he's done a great job - plenty of attention to detail and efficient, getting to lots of often forgotten spots in the time he had. And he was super cheery and friendly :) Despite the travel being tricky while lockdown still largely in place, meaning he was running slightly behind, he kept us informed in advance through messages so we weren't inconvenienced. Would definitely have him back again."

Local Information About
Barnes

In the South West London borough of Richmond upon Thames, the village of Barnes maintains an out-of-London feel, while situated a mere half hour commute from the Big Smoke.

The architecture of Barnes leaves quite an impression; the railway bridge in the village dates to Victorian times and now protected by Grade II listed status, while parts of St. Mary’s Church were erected in the 12th century. The domestic architecture is also notable. Due to Barnes’s riverside location there are a selection of Thames-side period properties that face away from the village, and these family homes are in high demand. The property landscape is completed by a selection of new-build flats and smaller houses elsewhere in the village.

Barnes and Barnes Bridge railway stations - both in Travelcard Zone 3 - ensure that locals are within easy commuting distance of the city, and trains run with frequent service to London Waterloo.

The SW13 postcode is serviced frequently by Housekeepers on our platform. Cleaners can be booked with ease for one-off, weekly or fortnightly cleans, thanks to our great tech!
