Thank you so much! (It is annoying because I received this message about review and tipping at 22:00 and tipping is only available untile 23:00). I am writing this review at 23:30. It's very frustrating that I cannot leave a tip at this time!) I will just make sure to leave a cash tip when Sokonan comes.

She's great and I never have to tell her what and how to do things. She takes care of the clean herself.

Review:

“Maligie was great, he worked solidly through the allocated time and cleaned up areas of the house that were in much need of attention. As this was our first clean in a while (after some building work) he didnt quite have a enough time to complete everything but that is our fault, not his. A great worker!.”

Local information about New Cross

New Cross, in south east London, is a thriving and well-connected part of Lewisham.

The area is notably the home of Goldsmiths, University of London, an institution famous for its contribution to the arts. Damien Hirst, Damon Albarn and Vivienne Westwood are all household names that have graduated from the college.

There’s plenty of entertainment for locals in New Cross, with pubs such as the New Cross Inn and the Amersham Arms both hosting live music regularly. New Cross is in close proximity to Deptford and Peckham where an array of other daytime and evening entertainment can be found.

Along the main road, it’s mostly flats on the housing market, often above retail space. There are also plenty of Victorian terraced houses across New Cross, many of which are divided into flats to suit the student demographic. Developers have also moved into the area in recent years, so new-builds feature prominently on the market now too.

New Cross and New Cross Gate both offer easy access in and out of the area via the London overground service. These trains come every few minutes and New Cross Gate is even serviced overnight at the weekends.

The Housekeep platform takes many bookings across the SE14 postcode. All cleaners on the platform are background-checked and have at least 6 months domestic cleaning experience, to ensure a 5-star experience!
