Life, health, happiness, yoga, style, travel, sunshine and endless possibilities…
They say a clean home is a happy home and honouring the Yogic Niyama of Saucha, I recently welcomed Monica from Housekeep into my home for an Autumn clean.
Housekeep is the award-winning online booking platform for experienced home cleaners. Each cleaner is interviewed in-person, background-checked, and speaks good English, ensuring a spotless clean every time – perfect for busy Londoners who simply don’t have time to clean.
The Housekeep clean includes:
The Kitchen – Dust and wipe all accessible surfaces / Clear any dishes left form breakfast or load dishwasher / Put away clean dishes / Clean the sink / Scrub the hob / Wipe the exterior of kitchen cupboards / Hang out laundry (if machine cycle finished) / Microwave interior and exterior cleaned / General tidy up / Vacuum and mop floors / Take out rubbish (including recycling)
The Bathroom – Clean the toilet / Scrub shower, bath tub and sink / Clean cabinet exteriors, mirror and fixtures / General tidy up / Vacuum and mop floors / Empty rubbish bins
The Living Areas – Dust and wipe all accessible surfaces / General tidy up / Vacuum and mop floors
The Bedroom – Dust and wipe all accessible surfaces / Make the bed (leave fresh linen on bed if you would like them to change it) / General tidy up / Vacuum and mop floors
Elsewhere – Clean light switches / Dust the doors / Skirting boards wiped / Water any indoor plants
Monica was excellent; really friendly and cleaned the house thoroughly from top to bottom. The kitchen and lounge looked bright and fresh, she cleaned all the little corners which usually get left out. My room looked immaculate like a hotel room – she tidied up my magazines and books, placing them neatly on the desk; she cleaned all around the window frames and I love that she tucked my duvet under the mattress! In the bathroom, she lifted up every single perfume, shampoo & soap bottle and cleaned all the surfaces (I am guilty of cleaning around things), then wiped down the mirror, leaving it streak free.
My whole Housekeep experience was simple, fuss free and professional. Also worth mentioning is that with Housekeep, you can book the same cleaner each time you need one and if for some reason you’re not totally satisfied with your clean, Housekeep will send another cleaner to your house to re-clean any parts you’re not happy with. Using Housekeep is affordable at just £12.50 per hour and means that I have more time to do the things that I really love.
