  • Gerallt

    "Very pleased with Gerallt's job and Housekeep overall. First time I booked a housecleaning service through this platform and decided to use it due to its high reviews in Trustpilot. Was not disappointed. I requested a cleaning service of common areas (particularly toilet, living room, kitchen - 2 hrs) and was put in contact with Gerallt. On the day of the cleaning, he messaged to let me know at what time he would be arriving and arrived on time. We had a small catch up and he started to work immediately following the requests posted on the job's description. Overall, he was efficient, did a really good job and was very thorough. We thank that he went the extra mile and stayed slightly over his time to finish some final touches! I was not able to personally thank him as he had to leave straight after he finished, but thank you for that, Gerallt! Unfortunately, I was not aware we would not be able to tip after we were billed; however, Gerallt completely deserves it for the job!"
