Frequently asked questions

What’s the difference between regular cleaning and after builders cleaning?

After builders cleaning is more thorough than regular cleaning, and requires specialist equipment. The after builders service removes high levels of dirt and dust from your surfaces, plus the exterior of your kitchen appliances and white goods. Your cleaners will also deep clean the inside of your windows, the outside of cupboards and your skirting boards, to ensure that all dust and dirt is removed.

Why do I need a specialist clean after renovation or building work?

Renovation and building work often results in lots of dust throughout your property. An after builders clean is designed to remove that before you move back in, so you can be comfortable when you return to the property.

What kind of paint spillages can be removed?

Your cleaners can try to remove small amounts of paint from windows, provided there is no risk of causing damage.

Your cleaners will not remove paint spillages from flooring, due to the risk of further damage. We would recommend you discuss any spillages with your builder.

What tasks can I add to after builders cleaning?

Inside cupboards and carpet/upholstery cleaning are available as optional extras.

After builders cleaning does not include mould removal or the cleaning of outdoor spaces.

How do I book after builders cleaning for offices and commercial buildings?

After builders cleaning can be booked for all types of property in London including; homes, offices, warehouses, schools, bars & restaurants, retail and healthcare facilities. Head to the commercial cleaning section of our website for more information.

What is Housekeep doing to stay COVID-19 secure?

Join our happy customers in Balham

We moved in recently so our flat is a bit chaotic, but Anna was super efficient and has left it sparkling (even where it's more difficult/there are actual piles of stuff that we haven't found a home for yet!). Looking forwards to my next clean with her!

Julia - Balham, 3 days ago

She worked really hard, cleaned really well and was very sweet and adaptable too. I had a one-off clean with her.. Didn't realise I could tip her here so did it in person.

Leila - Balham, 3 weeks ago

Rabia has done the most amazing job! Best housekeeper we have had and would definitely recommend her to anyone. She went above and beyond to ensure everything got done in the time and to a high standard :)!

Kate - Balham, 4 weeks ago

Thank you so much! This is the first time Anna's cleaned for us, and we would love to have her again!!

L - Balham, 1 month ago

Malika did a really thorough job, managing to get up some nasty wood stains and other things previous companies had overlooked or missed. Really pleased with the end result, would happily have her round again.

Paul - Balham, 1 month ago

Lemba was really thorough and efficient. She did a great job cleaning the kitchen and bathrooms

Lauren - Balham, 1 month ago

Shifau always exceeds my expectations! She is the best - so thorough yet efficient. The house always looks SPARKLING when she leaves. Couldn't recommend her more.

D - Balham, 1 month ago

Shifau always does a great job at our home, she is very reliable and timely. It is lovely to come back to a fresh and clean flat when Shifau has been in.

L - Balham, 1 month ago

Great and thorough cleaning. Very friendly and lovely cleaner. Booked a one-off cleaning as our regular cleaner was away, but Lyudmila was so nice we wish we could have both cleaners!

N - Balham, 3 months ago

Couldn't be happier with the cleaning done by Yesenia. Super thorough, polite and did an excellent job.
