Everything was nice and clean after Oliver’s visit. He’s a very friendly person, always up for a chat and did a very good job

A - Balham, 1 week ago

A great cleaner, super-efficient and is lovely about working around us while we're working from home.

H - Balham, 1 week ago

Sokonan was really lovely and did an amazing job cleaning. Everywhere is completely spotless and she was very quick and efficient!

K - Balham, 4 weeks ago

Oliver was absolutely fantastic, so friendly, thorough and one of the best cleaners I’ve had! Will be looking to hire him again in the future. Thank you Oliver!

Dora - Balham, 4 weeks ago

Mariana is always fantastic and did such a brilliant job at cleaning our oven as well this time! I am always amazed by how much she gets done at each visit :)

K - Balham, 2 months ago

Our first experience with Shifau was great, she listened to our requests and did a really thorough job. She even cleaned the coffee machine which was an expected bonus!

Lucy - Balham, 2 months ago

Lyudmila was incredibly thorough and did an amazing job with clearing the stains in the bathroom grouting. Something that I’ve been struggling with for ages!

S - Balham, 3 months ago

Shifau is a godsend for us, with a 7 month old around it’s hard to do a proper clean but Shifau always does a great job, meaning I can spend more time with bubs and know we have a beautifully clean house! Plus the little one really likes Shifau too and is super interested in everything she does which is an added bonus! Thank you 😊

E - Balham, 3 months ago

The best clean we've had on housekeep so far! The amount that Mariana got done in the time allocated is amazing, and it is all cleaned so beautifully. Would love to have Mariana clean again. Thank you!

K - Balham, 3 months ago
