    Fiona - Bow, Today
  • "Elena-Dana came as a cover housekeeper when the originally booked Housekeeper failed to communicate yet alone turn up. Due to the urgency of my situation to vacate my property the same evening Elena-Dana was called in as cover. She was prompt on arrival (which was reassuring given previous Housekeeper didn’t turn up) and also finished all requested cleaning and tasks before allocated time. She went above and beyond by also asking whether there was anything else she could help with given remaining c.30 mins. She thoroughly cleaned the fridge as an addition which was a massive help. Thank you for coming in, completing quickly and efficiently and saving my day!!"
