Dionne did an absolutely brilliant job! She put in extra hours to ensure that the "Spring Clean" I was hoping for was achieved. Dionne completed every task I requested and much more. She was also the most lovely and personable person.

“Harjinder is a really kind and lovely human. Just had my first clean and everything was done extremely efficient and thoroughly despite the scale of the job. Miracles worked! Harjinder got to know the exact requirements from the get go. A really tough job including some very hard to remove stains on tiles which I wasn't expecting to be remedied any time soon. Great communication and very intelligent and with it too. Can't recommend more highly! 😊.”

Local information about Barnes

In the South West London borough of Richmond upon Thames, the village of Barnes maintains an out-of-London feel, while situated a mere half hour commute from the Big Smoke.

The architecture of Barnes leaves quite an impression; the railway bridge in the village dates to Victorian times and now protected by Grade II listed status, while parts of St. Mary’s Church were erected in the 12th century. The domestic architecture is also notable. Due to Barnes’s riverside location there are a selection of Thames-side period properties that face away from the village, and these family homes are in high demand. The property landscape is completed by a selection of new-build flats and smaller houses elsewhere in the village.

Barnes and Barnes Bridge railway stations - both in Travelcard Zone 3 - ensure that locals are within easy commuting distance of the city, and trains run with frequent service to London Waterloo.

The SW13 postcode is serviced frequently by Housekeepers on our platform. Cleaners can be booked with ease for one-off, weekly or fortnightly cleans, thanks to our great tech!
