Absolutely wonderful! Maria cleans beautifully and manages to get it all done despite interruptions from my chaotic work from home schedule. 10/10 would recommend.

Galina was on time. She is a hard worker and got to all the nooks and crannies I don't always do. Friendly and kind.

Carpenders Park
Genuinely SO impressed with the service from the wonderful cleaning team. They arrived a little late as they'd had to spend longer at a previous job, but it quickly became clear why as they're incredibly thorough and meticulous. I usually would go with the cheapest quote I could find, but I've been burned before and I'm glad I spent a bit more for a much better service. Landlord commented that the place was in a better condition than when true previous tenant had left 2.5 years ago...! Wouldn't hesitate to use these folks again and recommend to others.

Local information about Watford

Watford is a town, northwest of London, in the neighbouring county of Hertfordshire. Situated within the M25, the town is well within the London commuter belt and is a great place for families and professionals to settle on the outskirts of the city.

Early twentieth-century and inter-war development in the town was begun to thwart the problem of overpopulation in the town. Many of these homes still pop up on the local property ladder, although these are now joined by post-war and even new-build houses, often semi-detached. These family-sized homes are popular with workers from London, due to their reasonable asking prices. The town centre, as well as residential streets, also contain examples of recent mock Tudor, beamed architecture.

Watford Junction provides a route into London from the town and, catching the right train, the journey takes little more than a quarter hour. Watford High Street also provides locals with London Overground service.

Housekeep now operates in WD postcodes, with highly rated, 5-star domestic cleaners available for easy booking. All cleaners on our platform are interviewed in person and background-checked upon joining.
