Brilliant can really tell you took the time and did all the little things, thank you so much for your help

Andrew - Crystal Palace, 1 week ago

Absolutely fantastic, also a lovely person (and fluent English which was much appreciated!) :)

U - Crystal Palace, 2 weeks ago

We couldn’t be happier with Laurgia, the flats spotless and she communicates very well. We’d highly recommend.

P - Crystal Palace, 1 month ago

Samira has somehow made my whole home so much cleaner than it's ever been. She genuinely did more than a weeks worth of cleaning in 2 and half hours. I was gobsmacked that she cleaned the oven too, which I didn't ask or allocate time for. She is genuinely the most amazing cleaner I've ever come across and I'm so thrilled she's local. I hope Samira continues work with us for as long as possible, I have honestly never been so happy. She is absolutely incredible. I never leave reviews but she is phenomenal and I have to tell everyone.

Sophie - Crystal Palace, 1 month ago

Samira is absolutely excellent her attention to details and pride in making sure everything is done properly is lovely.

J - Crystal Palace, 2 months ago

F - Anerley, 2 months ago

Isabel was extremely thorough and cleaned our apartment to perfection! Looking forward to having her onboard.

A - Crystal Palace, 2 months ago

Tajudeen did a fantastic job! Especially as we were busy working and couldn't give him much guidance. He assessed priorities and planned his time well leaving the flat spotless.

Local information about Sydenham

Sydenham is a leafy and residential district in south east London. The district bridges three London boroughs: Southwark, Lewisham and Bromley.

Tree-lined streets of terraced houses can be found across the district; some of these are from a period of 19th-century development spurred on by the relocation of the Crystal Palace, while other streets are comprised entirely of post-war terraced houses and semi-detached properties. As is commonplace across London, new-build apartments and purpose-built flats complete the housing landscape.

The green space across Sydenham is fantastic, with the area home to two Green Flag parks: Mayow Park and Sydenham Wells Park. Mayow Park is one of London’s oldest open spaces, dating back to the Victorian times. As well as having great recreational space, there’s a great community in Sydenham too. The local community has a strong cultural identity, epitomised by events such as the Sydenham Arts Festival. The festival invites notable speakers from around the globe, as well as musicians and poets, on an annual basis.

In Sydenham you’re never far from the city, with London Overground service from Sydenham railway station. Other railway stations - Sydenham Hill, Penge East, and Lower Sydenham - provide options for Southeastern rail service to the city.

The SE26 postcode is well serviced by cleaners on the Housekeep platform. All Housekeepers who join the platform have great domestic cleaning experience and are background-checked as part of their in-person interview.
