Searching for regular cleaner?



Hi, looking for a regular cleaner after some disappointments with the Handy app. 4 hours every two weeks, £10 per hour, preferably on a Friday. Any recommendations?

Recommended shops and services in SE23

Did you have my luck? I am also looking for a regular cleaner (3 hour pw @ £10 ph) preferably Monday or Tuesday


Sorry, I didn’t - I’ve stuck with the Handy app and am a lot happier with the person who is now picking up our jobs on a regular basis. It has been a bit hit or miss but overall am much happier.


I have a great cleaner - would be happy to pass on details if you are still looking.

Hey Sarah - we’ve just moved to Farren Road and would love a recommendation too if you’re happy to pass on details?


We use Jane Jefferson cleaning, they cover Forest Hill and surrounding areas I think. Very ethical company that pays London Living Wage etc.


Hi there,

If you still haven’t found a cleaner, I personally use Clean Carpets on a regular basis and am completely satisfied by the job they do and the price of their service. You can check their deals or request a quote here: . Good luck!



Just a quick reminder for anyone seeking recommendation for services: it’s best practice to check the profile of the person making the recommendation. Are they verified? If not, have they been active in the forum, in other areas and topics, before making the recommendation? A first time user who posts to recommend a company (including links) may not be a local user but representing the company. While this does not mean the service offered is not genuine, it does call into question the reliability of the recommendation.


I would strongly advise against Cleaners London (

We booked a deep clean today for 10am, only to be told shortly before they were due to arrive and start that they wouldn’t be ready till 1.30pm. Then it was 3pm. They’ve supposedly been 10-15 mins away ever since but it’s now gone 4pm and no sign of them. A completely wasted day, wrecked childcare, and no clean prior to a family visit tonight. Immensely frustrating.

Admittedly slightly off-topic as it’s a deep clean not a regular clean - but they do offer regular cleans as well. Avoid like the plague…


Obviously your own prerogative but my old flatmate worked as a cleaner through the Handy app, and they treat their employees just awfully.
Some of her clients realised and decided to pay her cash in hand, as for every £10 per hour, £2 was going to Handy, just for the use of the app. So I would say if you’re happy with the cleaner, see if they’d prefer to work just for you and not through Handy.


Hi all - we’ve used cleaners from Get Set Clean for the past 4 years or so. They’ve always been pretty good - and the I think they’re all fairly local.



I’m hoping to get a cleaner a couple of hours a fortnight - if anyone has any recommendations it would be really helpful. Especially comments on your experience with After 5 cleaning services on Clyde Terrace if anyone has used them?


Hi @VickyS and welcome to the forum. I have moved your post into the existing topic we have for cleaner recommendations.


My cleaner has given her permission for me to post her contact details on here so here you go - Carmen, Mobile - 079504 78502. If anyone wants to chat to me about her please contact me via the private messaging option (you will need to be a verified member in order to do so).

Hello, I’ve tried texting and calling Carmen but no answer - perhaps she’s not desperate for new work! Does anyone else have any recommendations for a weekly cleaner? Thanks
