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.

Local information about Havering

The London Borough of Havering is London’s north-easternmost Borough, comprised largely of suburbs previously belonging to Essex. Hornchurch, Upminster and Romford are Havering’s most prominent towns.

The borough’s housing stock consists largely of twentieth-century builds. These come in all shapes and sizes, with detached, semi-detached and terraced houses on the market, as well as smaller, bungalow homes available. There are also estates of former social housing which are now appearing on the private market. Of course, a variety of flats are available too, and the arrival of the Elizabeth Line in the borough has seen an increase in the development of new-build apartments as well.

The National Trust owned Rainham Hall is a fantastic family day out, with a lovely garden space open throughout the year. Although the Hall is not fully open currently, the cafe and gardens make it more than worthwhile to visit. If you’re particularly interested in the local history of the area, then the Havering Museum in Romford is also a must-see!

Although some distance from Central London, Havering does have connections to the city. The District Line terminates in Upminster, while there are railway connections to Liverpool Street and Stratford from Romford, too. The incoming Elizabeth Line will halve current journey times from Romford to Central London.

The Housekeep platform has plenty of cleaners who cover the RM postcode area. These cleaners have been background-checked and have 5-star domestic cleaning experience.
