I am a disabled, busy mum of 3 children, working part time and studying an MA in Law part time. I was therefore delighted to be offered a review of a home clean from Fantastic Services – the one-stop shop for all home services; they offer 25+ professional services on the go via the app, chat, or your web account.
Fantastic Services offer a complete one-stop shop for all your home cleaning and maintenance needs; cleaning, gardening, landscaping, tradesmen, removals & storage, waste removal, inventory services, pest control and appliance repair.
I decided to book a home cleaning service and booking the appointment was really easy (you can book on the internet, via their app or by webchat). When booking, you need to provide some basic information such as what type of clean you require (domestic, after renovation, end of tenancy), how many rooms, if you have carpets or not, whether cleaning materials and equipment are required, any extra such as oven or sofa clean etc. and of course, how long you require a cleaner for. Home cleaning costs from as little as £13 per hour.
The two-person cleaning team turned up in on time, for a 3 hour slot. I explained to them that I would like them to focus on cleaning and mopping the bathroom and kitchen, as well as dusting the other rooms of the house. I also asked if they could wash my oven trays if time allowed. After assessing the cleanliness of my home, they went to their van to fetch the cleaning materials. I had some computer training booked at 10am, so one of the cleaning team kindly cleaned, dusted, hoovered and polished my front lounge first. My fireplace was gleaming once she has finished.
Whilst the female member of the cleaning team was busy at work in my front lounge, her male colleague put some oven cleaner in my oven and set to work on the kitchen. He wiped down the kitchen cupboards, cleaned the worktops and sink/drainer area and the oven and hob. Finally, he hoovered and mopped the floor. I was delighted at how clean my oven and hob looked, as I had not managed to ever get it that clean myself.
My back lounge was clean in no time and the fireplace came up lovely after a polish. The carpet surface is uneven in this room and hard to vacuum, but the cleaners got the carpet looking spotless. They even remade the bed in my bedroom where I struggle to make the duvet look even within the duvet cover. The bathroom came up so clean and shiny, even on the stainless steel taps. I was delighted to see that they even had time to clean my oven trays which had felt greasy and they no longer felt greasy after their cleaning efforts. I was so impressed by their professionalism that I am considering booking in a regular weekly house clean.
What’s great about Fantastic Services is that they offer such a wide range of services. I am also very interested in booking their gardening services to tidy up my garden during spring of 2019 and at some point I may book them to clean my carpets. To see their full range of services, including their one-off deep-cleaning (currently offered in Greater London, Manchester and Liverpool), please see the services menu on their website.
Areas covered include London and Manchester. Booking is really easy and can be done via a form on their website or via phone.
I would rate my home clean as 5/5 for value for money and the friendly, professional service which was provided.
Why not consider booking a one off clean as a treat for someone special in your life? It would make a perfect Christmas gift idea.
