Klaudia came at short notice due to a cancellation. She was polite and friendly. Her work was efficient yet quick, and she offered to take on a few extra bits in the time. Would definitely have her clean again!

Marcia did a amazing job! We had tidied the flat before Marcia came. She made it even tidier and cleaned very thoroughly. It was a bonus to meet her, too! Thank you, Marcia.

Susan - home cleaner in Bermondsey, Elephant and Castle, Kennington Park, Newington, Old Kent Road, Walworth, Waterloo


Areas covered:

Bermondsey Elephant and Castle Kennington Park Newington Old Kent Road Walworth Waterloo


“Our first experience with Housekeep was absolutely terrible including the support team who took no responsibily and were impossible to contact in a timely manner. I am very, very pleased to say that Susan did a brilliant job for us and we can't wait to have her do her magic for us all the time. If it wasn't for her we would never use Housekeep again..”

Local information about Oval

Famous as the home of Surrey’s cricket ground, The Oval, the Lambeth neighbourhood of Oval is situated within the wider area known as Kennington.

Grand period properties dominate the Kennington area with family-sized terraced houses featuring prominently on the local property market. New-build apartments are also now available, and older purpose-built flats are scattered throughout the area.

Transport links are great in the area, with Oval underground station receiving service from the Northern Line. The station is within London’s travelcard zone 2, making Oval a great home for those working in Central London.

The Housekeep platform services all of Oval - the SW8, SW9 and SE11 postcodes - with 5-star domestic cleaners available for weekly, fortnightly or one-off cleans. These Housekeepers are all interviewed by our fabulous recruitment team in person, to ensure a professional experience.
