The best cleaner you’ve sent me. Very efficient but friendly. Very considerate to an elderly/ disabled couple. With 2 nosey cats. Place was absolutely spotless when she’d finished. She goes above and beyond what you ask her to do. Margaret.

She did arrive late due to travel problems. But she was apologetic. At least she knows my route for a future clean. She is a very hard worker. What I asked her to do was left spotless.She is cheerful and very polite. I would recommend her to anyone.

Lovely lady. Worked hard and well. My husband and I are both disabled to a certain extent. Monica was a treasure for us. Just got on with the cleaning we required and even got on well with my 2 cats. Thanks.

Lily is committed and enthusiastic -- willing to go the extra mile and to take on a tough cleaning challenge. She spent the time to experiment at home on different techniques to help clean a stubburn stainless steel range top and it worked!
