Linda presents as a helpful, polite and very capable individual. She quickly understood my requirements and worked diligently throughout her entire visit. There was no time wasting, going slow to pass the time, oh no, this Lady, gave me proper Value for Money. She is a treasure and I have asked her to come back. I believe some people gel and they get a good service whilst others are different and do not encourage a happy worker. I rate my first visit with Linda, full marks 5*****.

Review:

“Naomi was very polite and nice. She did as I said and did a great deepclean on the bathroom, it makes such a big difference to us. After she had finished the bathroom she did a lot of work in the kitchen and it looks a lot tidier and better now. I would definitely use Naomi again..”

“Linda is super sweet, very polite, hard working and an excellent cleaner/ironer. My husband and I had only moved into the apt. a few months back and work long hours - Linda has allowed for us to enjoy some spare time together that doesn't involve house chores this weekend. The apt. looks great. I look forward to inviting her back..”

Local information about Islington

Islington is inner-London's most densely populated borough, with the 200,000 residents who call it home crammed into less than 6 square miles that extend from Crouch Hill in the north, to Farringdon in the South, Canonbury in the east and King's Cross in the west.

Islington incorporates the postcode areas N1, N4, N5, N6, N7, N8, N16, N19, EC1, EC2, NW5 and WC1 and is serviced by multiple tube and rail stations including Tufnell Park, Archway, Upper Holloway, Crouch Hill, Finsbury Park, Arsenal, Drayton Park, Holloway Road, Camden Road, Angel, Highbury & Islington, Canonbury, Caledonian Road & Barnsbury, Essex Road, Old Street and Farringdon.

Islington is known for its Victorian and Georgian townhouses set on communal garden squares. The housing stock also includes many flats in the form of converted terraces, warehouse conversions and modern new-build apartments.

Housekeep cleaned its first house in Islington in 2014, and there are now hundreds of experienced domestic cleaners available in the area, including in Clerkenwell, Pentonville and Mildmay.
