Carly is punctual, professional, and efficient. She got on with cleaning my flat without needing instructions and when I checked her work, it was all good. She's also easy to talk to and communicates well. I would definitely book her again. Thank you!

Joan is amazing. She has fantastic attention to detail and my apartment is always spotless after she cleans. Not only this, she uses her time very well and maximises the area she can clean. Highly recommend!

Left the house sparkling clean. Highly recommend kabir. He was kind enough to ask me if there was any additional work to be done after he finished cleaning the whole apartment.

Local information about Shirley

Situated on the southern edge of London, Shirley is an area within the London Borough of Croydon.

Shirley is known as the former home of the Lloyd's Monks Orchard House, which has sadly now been demolished, and the current home of Shirley Windmill, which is widely thought to be the last large windmill that was built in Surrey. In pop culture, Shirley is known as the home of Ronnie Corbett, of 'The Two Ronnies' fame.

Much of Shirley was built in the twentieth century, with many of the flats and houses that stand today being erected during the interwar years. The wide selection of detached and semi-detached houses in the area has made Shirley a popular destination for those looking to move out of the city to a quieter area.

For those looking to travel into Central London, Shirley is just a short bus ride from East Croydon station, which has frequent Thameslink connections into the city.
