We have extensive clients in both the commercial and residential markets.
We cover all of Greater London. If you are not sure if your area is covered in this description, we would be happy to let you know. If the job is of sufficient size we will travel to surrounding counties.
Health and Safety regulations forbid us from laddering above a certain height. In many cases, this is not an issue as most windows can be cleaned from the inside. Of course, we cannot lean out of a window without a safety harness above a certain height - in such cases 'eyebolts' would need to be installed. Other solutions we can provide include the water-fed pole method, or hydraulic platforms.
We can provide two forms of regular service:
We can ring you at a frequency of your choice and remind you. At this point you can choose whether or not you want your windows cleaned at this time.
We can agree with you to book the job at a specific time and frequency, for example the first Tuesday of every third month at 8 am. This does not require confirmation on your part, as it will automatically be carried forward in our computer database. We are able to provide a courtesy call to remind you of the appointment a few days before.
This depends on the amount, size and locations of the windows, as well as the quality of light that hits them. In the majority of cases, we recommend that domestic clients have their windows cleaned once every three months, although windows overlooking busy roads will of course get dirty faster. For corporate clients, this is a matter of personal taste; often a pristine image is vital and such cleans may be required every month, fortnight, week or even twice a week.
Most of our operatives start work at 7 in the morning (or 6:30 in high summer).
Unfortunately, no matter how careful one might be, from time to time accidents can and will happen. In the unlikely event of something being damaged or broken, we will always try our utmost to repair any damage that our operatives have caused. We are also fully insured; copies of all of our insurance documents are available by contacting us at the office.
We are unable to clean such fabrics, as we use water-extraction cleaning for carpets and rugs. Vegetable fibres change their shape when the moisture around them changes, which means that Sisal and Seagrass flooring is almost guaranteed to be ruined by deep cleaning. We have yet to come across any satisfactory method for deep cleaning of vegetable-fibre flooring.
Scotchguard is an applied stain-inhibitor, which acts as a soft sealant on your carpets or upholstery. The advantage is that the fabric is much easier to clean and maintain on a day-to-day basis. The disadvantage is that Scotchguard must be completely removed prior to a deep clean, then reapplied after the fabric has completely dried. We are able to provide ScotchguardingTM products.
We can usually book a window cleaner for you with one or two days' notice and a general or carpet cleaner with two or three days' notice. We can occasionally provide a cleaner on the day. Please bear in mind however that demand is much greater during the spring and summer months, where we are often fully booked for three to four days in advance.
24 hours. If it is a same day cancellation, with operatives already allocated to your job, we may be forced to levy a cancellation charge. The amount would depend on the value of the job and how many operatives involved.
Yes. Such jobs are considerably more labour intensive however, and the price will reflect the amount of extra work done.
We are fully and comprehensively insured. Full details are available upon request.
We are happy to provide a risk-assessment on request.
We always endeavour to be as accurate as possible when booking times with you. However the nature of booking several diverse jobs a day coupled with the unpredictability of London traffic prevents us from being able to absolutely guarantee times. If we are running late, we undertake to let you know as soon as we can, with an estimate of when we will be arriving.
Yes. When required, our accounts department will send a receipt one working day after the job has been completed.
Yes, we are able to take payment by both credit and debit card over the phone.

Cleaning services with an eye for detail. We aim to please!
I write to thank you for your excellent work in cleaning our flat (including the windows) in W10. The cleaning was done at very short notice and was a great relief to both me and my tenants (who moved in on the same day) and they too have voiced their complete satisfaction.
Thanks for doing such a good job for Mrs G in W8. She was glowing with praise for the job done.
Just a quick note to say how fantastically thorough the cleaning was and how conscientious!
We would like to say how grateful we have been for the services we have had from your company, particularly in fitting-in with our various crises!
The English Cleaning Company have been undertaking window and carpet cleaning at this prestigious luxury development. The standard of work, efficiency and reliability have at all times been excellent. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending this company without reservation.
May I just put on record how delighted we are with the service received over the last couple of days. Such hard-working, energetic and personable people, they have done a really wonderful job.
