South Bermondsey (SE16)
I've been struggling with my health and cleaning has been extremely difficult. Uzo arrived to my flat which needed a lot of work due to me not being able to clean myself for weeks. Uzo was amazing! She got stuck right in and tasks were done in a time efficient order. She left the flat spotelles and I couldn't recommend Uzo enough. Very polite, very friendly and comfortable to be around. For the time I had booked her for, I think she done more than what I expected in the timeframe. Felt amazing to come into a clean home this evening. Thank you so much Uzo.
