Recommended Window Cleaner

We had our windows cleaned this week by Carlos and his wife - what an amazing job they did! We've never had such clean windows, plus they clean all around the frame and sill. We got our windows and doors cleaned inside and outside and all our mirrors. They can also clean and clear gutters and do cleaning and other tasks. They are a local lovely couple too. I've seen lots of other people recommend them and now I know why. Tel 07557 538138 wcleanerslondon@gmail.com
