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?

Franciser always does a great job. She is very mindful not only of the actual cleaning but also of our needs like my baby napping out of there is a work video call. She works around these needs and the place is always spic and span after.
