Joy is the best. She doesn't leave any stone unturned! I wish I could give all the below compliments to Joy - She is the best!

J - Brixton, 2 days ago

Best house cleaner we have had. Brilliant cleaner and lovely also! Real attention to detail

sophie - Brixton, 4 days ago

Maggie is fantastic! Always such a thorough clean, done quickly and leaves the flat looking amazing. Thank you!

Kate - Battersea, 1 week ago

So efficient and thorough and such a lovely lady! Best clean I've had, through this platform. Cleanliness and attention to detail are so important to me, because of my allergies and young baby. Vidgaile ticks both boxes and I'd happily recommend her to anyone.

L - Battersea, 1 week ago

Sarah was such a ray of sunshine. Super friendly and personable. It was a pleasure to meet Sarah, we had two bad experiences before this, so it was a relief to have someone who cares about what they’re doing and who’s easy to get along with and open to feedback.

A - Elephant and Castle, 2 weeks ago

Excellent clean and super lovely, really pleased with Marie's work and will be using her again.

Susanna Catherine - Brixton, 2 weeks ago

Ariel is such a lovely guy, extremely conscientious and very thorough. He's punctual, read all our instructions very carefully and checked with us on areas he wasn't sure about, taking care to do more and err on the side of caution. He could be faster but I suspect that this is just a matter of familiarizing himself with our place and requirements. Overall, Ariel does a brilliant job.

L - Battersea, 1 month ago

Good communication about arrival times. Thorough clean, and reliable. Very happy with the service offered.

I - Battersea, 1 month ago

Amazing. Vidgaile cleaned so well and so efficiently, moving things around, so she could clean under them. I don't have to worry about my dust and dander allergies, nor about my baby's health. Love her work!

L - Battersea, 1 month ago

Amazing clean - by the far the best of the 3 we’ve had from Housekeep. His job eclipses the other cleaner’s efforts.

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.
