Anyone who reads this blog regularly or follows me on social media will know that we have spent the last few months having an extension built and although I am quite a laid back person there have been times where it’s all got a bit much – especially the never ending dust.
By the time the building work was coming to an end we knew that we needed help with the cleaning. Dave and I had very little energy left and the extension, although beautiful, had so much that needed to be cleaned. It had plaster splattered everywhere, sawdust on the floor and just dust in every space imaginable. The lounge wasn’t much better – with the TV, toys and every surface caked in dust.
But, after having a Fantastic Services Deep Clean a couple of years ago we enlisted their help to clean our house, to do an official After Builders Clean. The clean is perfect for what we needed – they’re used to plaster splatters, dust, paint and everything else and they work out how many people and how many hours are needed to clean the space.
We asked them to focus on downstairs, just the hallway, lounge and new extension – incorporating the utility room and downstairs toilet and booked them in for a morning. We were given email updates throughout the process and they arrived bang on time, at 8am on the day we’d chosen.
They weren’t concerned at the level of cleaning needed, asking us what the priorities were and telling us they’d be done by lunchtime. My main issues were the dust and the floor in the extension. They said they’d wipe down all the outsides of the kitchen cabinets, the appliances and even clean the insides of the windows. The supplied their own cleaning products, even bringing a mop and hoover with them, and I happily left them to it.
When I came back the house was sparkling. The floor was the most noticeable part for me as it had gone from being caked in dust and plaster to being so clean. The washing machine, that had lived through the building work looked shiny and new and all of the cabinets were dust free. It looked like the extension I had imagined – and I couldn’t have been happier.
Our lounge and hallway were also dust free, with all the surfaces cleaned, all the windows cleaned inside and even our sofa pulled out and cleaned underneath – I had forgotten what a dust free house looked like but Fantastic Services gave us a lovely clean home again – and I really could have cried. It was such a relief after months of building work.

Fantastic Services are flipping amazeballs! These guys sent me a team of cleaners to sort out my entire house after our loft extension, and they did wonders in my grubby home, he he! Hasn’t been that clean since though 🙁
Hi Stevie, this is a long shot, I was looking at your mixer tap in your pics and I have the exact same, but need a new spindle… Can you tell me what make/brand of mixer tap it is as I never bought these originally.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Hi Ralph, I’m not sure of the name but it’s from Howdens and from memory they didn’t have that many options so should hopefully still sell it! Donna
Wow what a brilliant job they did! Your extension is beautiful and I’m so happy for you that a lot of the chaos is over now 🙂
Hooray! We love Fantastic Services. They’ve done a brilliant job for you and the extension is looking AMAZING!
I’d love a deep clean of my kitchen x
I would use them for a good deep clean
I would use them for a really good one off clean – it would be so amazing to just not have to worry about it for once! 🙂
I would use them for a deep clean.
to clean my oven, I really dislike that job.
I would ask them to clean my bathroom as it is very small and difficult because I have lots of pipes etc. I have arthritis in my neck which makes it very difficult to clean and so it’s got very grotty!
A good kitchen clean!
a good old deep clean 🙂
Give my kitchen a good clean
My bathrooms need a proper scrub.
I would use it on either the bathroom that needs a good clean or the garden that needs a lot of work on! Fabulous prize!
I would use this on my daughter’s garden which is full of bits of masonry, rotting wood, and other junk that the previous owners and their tenants left behind, plus loads of nettles and brambles. My poor son in law has been bravely battling these for weeks and he still has loads more clearing to do. It would be so nice for my little granddaughter to actually use the back garden, something that’s not possible at the moment as it’s too hazardous.
