I recently had the pleasure of hiring Shavonne to clean my 3-bedroom home, and I must say, her cleaning skills are truly exceptional. From start to finish, Shavonne displayed a level of professionalism and expertise that surpassed all my expectations. Upon entering my home, Shavonne immediately assessed the cleaning requirements and developed a meticulous plan to tackle each room. Her attention to detail was remarkable, as she meticulously cleaned every nook and cranny, leaving no surface untouched. It was evident that she took pride in her work, as she consistently went above and beyond to ensure the highest standard of cleanliness. Shavonne's efficiency was truly impressive. She managed her time effectively, ensuring that all tasks were completed within the agreed timeframe without compromising on quality. Despite the size of my home, Shavonne worked tirelessly, displaying remarkable stamina and determination throughout the cleaning process. What impressed me the most about Shavonne was her ability to handle even the toughest cleaning challenges effortlessly. Stains that I had resigned myself to living with were miraculously removed, and every surface shone as if they were brand new. Shavonne's knowledge of cleaning techniques and her attention to detail were truly outstanding. Furthermore, Shavonne's friendly and approachable demeanor made the entire experience even more enjoyable. She took the time to understand my specific cleaning needs and preferences, ensuring that the service was tailored to suit my requirements. Her excellent communication skills and willingness to go the extra mile made me feel valued as a customer.

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.
