Antoniya was able to cover a clean when my regular housekeeper was unavailable. Once she was assigned the job I messaged her to let her know about my pet dog as some housekeepers have been uncomfortable with him being loose when they are working. She replied really quickly to confirm that he wouldn't be a problem. She arrived right within the agreed timeslot and was able to take care of the weekly clean quickly and efficiently. I'll be adding her to my favourites in case we need cover in future. She was polite and friendly and did a great job on the flat.

Have used her continuosly for weeks now and she's superb as always. Does an excellent job of cleaning through out the house from the bathrooms, to stairs, landing and the kitchen. Scrubs off all the dirt / stains in very hard to reach areas and even corners you'll barely notice. She's very thorough & meticulous, doesn't just do a touch surface, but will go above and beyond to leave your enitre space as immaculate as possible. She really does a good job. Will highly recommend Drite.
