“We went down to visit mum for two days last week, and we both could tell straight away that the flat was getting a proper clean on a regular basis. Daisy even found a ‘lost’ clutch bag, the whereabouts of which has been bugging mum for nearly a year!   Many thanks to you and to the team for the service you all provide. It is much appreciated!”
