Friendly and thorough. Veronica went above and beyond and stayed longer than the allotted hours to ensure the work was finished to a high standard.

E - Addington, 1 month ago

Veronica was a lovely lady, and she did a fantastic job cleaning our home, and was very thorough throughout the place. Thank you!

Emma - Addington, 1 month ago

Was very polite, and worked diligently. She left the property very clean. It could have been a little more tidy, but the final output is also influenced by the fact that it was very messy to start with. Highly recommended.

Location information about Shirley

Situated on the southern edge of London, Shirley is an area within the London Borough of Croydon.

Shirley is known as the former home of the Lloyd's Monks Orchard House, which has sadly now been demolished, and the current home of Shirley Windmill, which is widely thought to be the last large windmill that was built in Surrey. In pop culture, Shirley is known as the home of Ronnie Corbett, of 'The Two Ronnies' fame.

Much of Shirley was built in the twentieth century, with many of the flats and houses that stand today being erected during the interwar years. The wide selection of detached and semi-detached houses in the area has made Shirley a popular destination for those looking to move out of the city to a quieter area.

For those looking to travel into Central London, Shirley is just a short bus ride from East Croydon station, which has frequent Thameslink connections into the city.
