Rosemond did everything we asked - it was the first time we had her to clean our house and we left her to it and it was perfect! The only thing was that we ticked to bring products but she didn't bring them and had to use ours instead but it didn't stop her doing a fantastic job!!

We couldn't be happier with Shamim! We had a family emergency and were away for a few weeks. Shamim was so understanding, took great care of the house and our keys and sent us messages after every clean to let us know how things were going. Really appreciate everything she does for our family and 100% recommend!

Local information about Waltham Forest

Waltham Forest is a borough of North East London, on the edge of Greater London. The borough is green and residential, particularly north of the North Circular, and Waltham Forest’s northern point borders the westernmost district of Essex, Epping Forest.

The borough has a strong sense of community, with Walthamstow’s traditional East End Market boasting the title of Europe’s longest street market. Walthamstow High Street and other areas of the borough date back to Victorian times and much earlier; Roman discoveries have even led certain camps of historians to speculate as to whether Leyton, an area within the borough, may have been the site of the Roman base Derolitum. Sadly, such claims have little archeological corroboration

As Central London prices have steadily increased, it’s unsurprising that outer London boroughs have become increasingly popular with those happy to commute a little further. Homes are larger than in central London, with detached and semi-detached houses complementing terraced period property and converted flats. Twentieth-century purpose built flats and even some new-builds are in high demand amongst young professionals and families.

For those who make this move, transport to Central London for work is still perfectly viable; Victoria Line and London overground trains run through Walthamstow Central, while Leyton and Leytonstone both receive frequent service from the Central Line.

The borough of Waltham Forest sees plenty of great Housekeep cleaners pass through every day. Our tech will pair you up with an experienced domestic cleaner instantly, and you can even book a 5-star clean for the very next day.
