  1. Domestic help needed 10.00am to 11.30am on mornings of Thursday, Saturday, Sunday. Breakfast preparation, bed making, dishes. Elderly couple. Tel: 020 7609 1965.

  2. Hi, Please can someonw recommend a cleaner for my flat in Hemingford Road? I need someone once a week for 2 or 3 hours to do cleaning and some ironing. The suggestions currently on the board look great, but not sure if they’re still active. Thanks very much, Kate

  3. i am looking for an HONEST reliable, very good at his/her job, and good natured cleaner on a temporary and then ad hoc basis. Does anyone have such a gem? Thanks. Sharon Feinstein

  4. Hello, looking for a cleaner who does ironing as well (about 2-3 hours per week). Is Emilia, mentioned in posts from 2011 still around? Anyone else? Thanks in advance

  5. My cleaner, Dot, might be able to fit you in. She’s very good indeed. Her English isn’t great but her sons speak it well, so it is best to text her. I can give you her phone number, but if you don’t ‘do’ texting let me know your requirements and I’ll drop her a line.

    I pay her £10/hour and she is worth every penny. She also does my sewing, ironing, drops off my dry cleaning and takes my post to the post office.

  6. We have just had a brilliant cleaner, Sam, while our regular cleaner was away. He is trustworthy, very punctual, cleans brilliantly and is very friendly. He worked for us for 2 months and was great. He’s on 0755141379 and would like to have some work.

  7. I warmly recommend the carpet cleaner I have used for years, a charming father-and-son team who charge incredibly reasonable prices. No job is too large or too small. You can text or call Peter on 077 6735 7112.

    Also, Peter introduced me to a carpet fitter/floorer, who seems very good too. He does carpets, wood floors and vinyls and is based on the Essex Road. 020 8597 0444 or 078 5019 6093. Both carpet cleaner and carpet fitter know this area and have been working in their profession for many years.

  8. Does anyone know of a good cleaner who might be looking for four or five hours’ work a week, spread over a couple of days?

  9. My lovely cleaner, Lydia, is in need of some more work and I wondered if you feel you could let the locals know about her? She is tiny and Philipino but she is totally trustworthy, is a very good cleaner and is especially good at ironing. Her English is not wonderful but adequate. If anyone is interested they are welcome to have my number 020 7609 1401.

  10. A Polish cleaner is looking for work. I don’t know her but she was recommended by my cleaner, who is excellent and works for lots of families round here. Call Sylvia 074 2322 3888.

  11. Melanie – I would recommend our cleaner (who also does ironing). She is called Emilia (078 5472 7918). She was recommended to me by the Hemingford Road Association, and I understand she also works for 2 other houses on Hemingford Road.

  12. Thanks Jen. I did notice that post before and tried the mobile number at the time, but it didn’t work. I might contact No 20 direct.

  13. Hi Melanie,
    You could try the woman I mentioned in the post below, who was recommended to me by number 20 Thornhill Crescent. I’ve cut and pasted it here:
