Review:

“Amazing clean, best I've had using this app, she really scrubs everything down and gives it a proper clean as opposed to often they just wipe around things. So I was really impressed. I haven't seen anything that hasn't been dusted or cleaned yet which is great! Could he more diligent with things going back in correct place after dusting, and also Lilian arrived 1 hr early when I was in the middle of an important call; which was a bit inconvenient but she went away and came back at the right time. But other than that, very good and will definitely book again..”

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!
