Brilliant clean as always! Thank you so much Dee! Our last clean with Dee, as we are moving, was perfection! Thank you Dee!

In just 3 hours did all the important parts of cleaning - bathroom, kitchen, loo, and three handbasins in bedrooms. Washed kitchen floor. Vacuumed most used rooms. Started laundry. Not enough time on first appointment to do everything (original estimate for that, 5 hours) . However, I'm very satisfied with the result. Half an hour ironing, mostly shirts, not quite all of it, but a lot had accumulated. Friendly and pleasant person. Happy to have again, but not for about four weeks as I shall be away soon for a week.

“Giacomo is a very lovely guy! He cleaned the bathrooms and kitchen very well and efficiently. The kitchen floor was pristine. He'd be even better if he did the small touches too, like plumping the cushions on the sofa and making the beds and pillows look tidier etc..”
