    Charlotte - Crofton Park, Today
  • "Absolutely the best house clean we have ever had! Amazingly thorough, everything is sparkling. Carmen is so polite and friendly and couldn’t do more to help."

  • "Very thankful to Marta for a spotless clean - very effective with her time and even shared some tips :)"

    Ana - Bellingham, 4 days ago
  • "Louise has cleaned a couple of times for us so far. She is very friendly and polite and keen to take on any suggestions we may have. She is generally thorough with cleaning, which is something we particularly like, and great that she is suggesting new ways of cleaning/more effective products to use. If time management (e.g. by prioritising tasks) and final polishing of surfaces improve a bit (e.g. by using vinegar to remove any remaining water marks/residue in bathroom) she would be the perfect cleaner."
