HOME // Fantastic Services: A Review

When I was at university, I earned myself the nickname Scrubber. And not for the reasons you might think! (how very dare you! ;))

In actual fact, and quite unusually for a student, I used to have what everyone else considered a bit of OCD when it came to cleaning. I personally don't think it was OCD as such - I just had slightly higher standards of cleanliness compared to my slovenly student counterparts! 

Since the arrival of my two terribly untidy children and setting up my own business, housework seems to have taken a bit of a back seat for me. Of course it gets done - I still want a clean house - it just happens reluctantly as there always seems to be other, more important things to do. I'm a single parent so I'm forever working, or walking the kids to school, or food shopping, or ferrying them to and from after school clubs and playdates. I also battle a laundry basket that never seems to be empty on a daily basis and have a menagerie of animals to look after. To be in a position to take the pressure off and treat myself to a cleaner has always been The Dream. And last week that dream came true!

The lovely people at Fantastic Services had been in touch to ask whether I'd like to have a one off deep clean before Christmas. As we've had some building work going on over here for the last couple of weeks I definitely did, so they very kindly arranged for two cleaners to come and work their magic on my house.

As well as the usual kitchen and bathroom cleaning, cobweb dusting, surface wiping, sweeping, mopping and hoovering - which was all carried out to the highest of standards - Fantastic Services exceeded my expectations by dusting all my picture frames and cleaning the glass, cleaning all mirrors, dusting all my ornaments including those in my printer's tray, cleaning the inside of my windows, polishing the bathroom tiles and the kitchen splash backs and wiping down all the skirting boards. They even cleaned my kitchen bin!

Needless to say I was very impressed and wish more than anything I could have them back every week to help me keep on top of things.

Fantastic Services also provide other services, like gardening, carrying out handyman jobs around the house, carpet and oven cleaning - and I am 150% going to be calling them back to help me with all of those at some point in the near future.

A six hour clean costs in the region of £120 and includes all cleaning equipment and materials. My clean was complimentary in exchange for this honest review.

If you're keen to give Fantastic Services a go yourself, I'm delighted to be able to offer £10.00 off your very first booking using the code MODERNMUM10.

Terms and conditions: £10 off first booking only. Does not apply to regular domestic cleaning and Christmas services. Cannot be combined with other deals and promotions. Minimum charges apply. Subject to availability and area coverage.
