We moved in recently so our flat is a bit chaotic, but Anna was super efficient and has left it sparkling (even where it's more difficult/there are actual piles of stuff that we haven't found a home for yet!). Looking forwards to my next clean with her!

She worked really hard, cleaned really well and was very sweet and adaptable too. I had a one-off clean with her.. Didn't realise I could tip her here so did it in person.

Malika did a really thorough job, managing to get up some nasty wood stains and other things previous companies had overlooked or missed. Really pleased with the end result, would happily have her round again.
