  • "Ayate is the best I’ve ever had. She is so careful and thorough and an absolute pleasure to deal with."

    F - Brixton, Today
  • "Rahel is awesome. We still haven’t met in person but she is doing a fabulous job. I changed the notes late the night before my clean and she made sure to complete every one. Super pleased!"

    Amelia - Brixton, Yesterday
  • "David always does a great job. He is very punctual and very respectful of our space. We will continue to rely on him to help care for our home."

    Marta - Kennington, 2 days ago
  • "Lydia was both an excellent cleaner and excellent company. I was doing a deep clean of my house so we worked side by side some and independently some. She advised me on how to complete certain tasks more efficiently and the best Hoover to purchase. She focused on the areas in the flat that I asked her to, but didn’t just stop when something was finished—she didn’t wait for me to tell her what to do next if I was in the middle of something, but took the initiative and found something else to clean. I’d recommend her to anyone looking for an efficient and effective cleaner."

Local Information About
Oval

Famous as the home of Surrey’s cricket ground, The Oval, the Lambeth neighbourhood of Oval is situated within the wider area known as Kennington.

Grand period properties dominate the Kennington area with family-sized terraced houses featuring prominently on the local property market. New-build apartments are also now available, and older purpose-built flats are scattered throughout the area.

Transport links are great in the area, with Oval underground station receiving service from the Northern Line. The station is within London’s travelcard zone 2, making Oval a great home for those working in Central London.

The Housekeep platform services all of Oval - the SW8, SW9 and SE11 postcodes - with 5-star domestic cleaners available for weekly, fortnightly or one-off cleans. These Housekeepers are all interviewed by our fabulous recruitment team in person, to ensure a professional experience.
