Anastasia was polite and discreet. She arrived in time and wore her gloves. She was cordial and sociable but also very focused on her job. She completed her task on time and left all products in order.

Rebeca made a great work as always, even though she had back pain today. Great attitude and very responsible

Maria - Kew, 3 months ago

Rebecca is really helpful and efficient. She has been of great help to us when I was about to have a baby and during baby's first week. She has no problem to pick up children's toys as I was not always able to do it before she came.

E - Kew, 4 months ago

Rebeca is a joy to have at home. She’s got a great attitude, skills and smile. She’ll turn your messy corners into a happy home :)

Pedro - Kew, 5 months ago

Michael goes above and beyond. He did a much deeper clean than I am used to and has a great positive and prideful attitude in his work.

Location information about Barnes

In the South West London borough of Richmond upon Thames, the village of Barnes maintains an out-of-London feel, while situated a mere half hour commute from the Big Smoke.

The architecture of Barnes leaves quite an impression; the railway bridge in the village dates to Victorian times and now protected by Grade II listed status, while parts of St. Mary’s Church were erected in the 12th century. The domestic architecture is also notable. Due to Barnes’s riverside location there are a selection of Thames-side period properties that face away from the village, and these family homes are in high demand. The property landscape is completed by a selection of new-build flats and smaller houses elsewhere in the village.

Barnes and Barnes Bridge railway stations - both in Travelcard Zone 3 - ensure that locals are within easy commuting distance of the city, and trains run with frequent service to London Waterloo.

The SW13 postcode is serviced frequently by Housekeepers on our platform. Cleaners can be booked with ease for one-off, weekly or fortnightly cleans, thanks to our great tech!
