Emma - Balham, 1 month ago

We are so impressed with Antigona’s cleaning today - the house was admittedly not in a great state to begin with and now it feels cleaner than when we moved in! Would recommend and hope that Antigona is able to help us again.

Annie - Balham, 1 month ago

Ela was fantastic not only was she super efficient and had great attention to detail she was a very nice lady too. Lee, Balham.

Lee - Balham, 1 month ago

Came to the house to do a post Covid deep clean of the kitchen - all the grungy tasks from cleaning the oven, inside of fridge, food drawers. Was conscientious and hard working and very nice to chat to - would use again.
