A clean, tidy and clutter-free home does wonders for our happiness, mental health and overall wellbeing. Keeping your house in shipshape, however, is harder said than done. Due to the growing demands of modern life, many people these days struggle to find the time, energy or desire to take care of the housework and would rather dedicate their precious free time to doing the things that they love. Plus, leaving it to the professionals ensures a job well done!

If this sounds familiar, then you’ve come to the right place.

With a proud heritage and enduring passion for providing premium-quality house cleaning, Poppies’ regular housework service is here to keep your home looking spick-and-span while improving your quality of life. For each and every one of our clients, our aim is to take care of those jobs that make a real difference in your life: turning your home into a peaceful, pleasant and mess-free environment; taking stress off your plate; and giving you more time to enjoy life with your loved ones.

Available on a weekly, fortnightly or four-weekly basis to fit your schedule, our regular housework service includes a full range of domestic duties. From general tidying, cleaning, laundry and ironing through to deep cleaning, our bespoke packages are tailored to meet your individual needs. Every job is carried out to the highest standard by our team of friendly, fully-trained and experienced Poppies operatives, who are all permanently employed by us. Unlike other cleaning companies, we don’t source staff from unreliable external agencies or force them to be self-employed.

By choosing Poppies, you can rest assured that your housework is in good hands. With 40 years (and counting) of experience, we’re the longest-established domestic cleaning service providers in the UK. Since being founded by the late Sue Rorstad MBE in 1980, we’ve cleaned the homes of many happy clients while developing a reputation as one of the best and most reliable cleaning companies in the country.

What Housework Services Do We Provide?

 Our regular housework service offers a comprehensive range of house cleaning jobs. A cleaning visit can include any of the following:

  • General tidying and cleaning — It’s surprising how quickly and easily clutter tends to pile up around the house as we go about our daily lives. From wiping down surfaces and vacuuming the carpets to washing the dishes and putting away toys and other items, we’ll leave your house mess-free and stress-free.
  • Laundry & Ironing — Laundry is one of those jobs that can easily be forgotten about… until it’s too late and you’re left with nothing to wear! With Poppies, you never have to worry about running into this nightmare scenario. From T-shirts and trousers to bathroom towels and bed sheets, we’ll stay on top of your laundry and ironing to make sure your wardrobes and drawers are always well stocked with fresh, clean and neatly-folded clothes and garments.
  • Deep cleaning — Whether it’s that time of year for the annual spring clean or your home simply needs some serious sprucing up, no deep cleaning job is too demanding for the Poppies team. In addition to the regular scrubbing, dusting, vacuuming and mopping duties, we can clean those neglected and hard-to-reach places as well as cleaning your fridge and defrosting your freezer. A Poppies deep clean will leave your home looking, smelling and feeling brand new.

Written Specification

From experience, we know that every home is different and without seeing it first, there is no practical way to provide a quote for cleaning it. Therefore, before we begin work, we will arrange a free, no-obligation home consultation that will give us the opportunity to meet you in person, view your property and discuss your needs, preferences and goals so that we can gain a full understanding of what you’re looking for.

From there, we will be able to provide you with a fair and accurate quote that meets your requirements, outlining the cleaning work that will be carried out during each visit, the frequency of your regular service, and how much this will cost.


At Poppies, we believe that continuity is in everyone’s best interest. When you sign up to our regular housework service, we’ll do our best to pair you with the most suitable Poppies operative who will be your regular cleaner. This allows us to deliver a more efficient and consistent cleaning service while making sure that you get the best value from each visit. Plus, a friendly face always helps!

Whether you have a weekly, fortnightly or four-weekly service, you can ensure that each cleaning session is at the same time on the same day of the week to suit your schedule.

If, in the event of a staff holiday or sickness, your regular Poppies operative is unable to attend a cleaning session, we’ll simply send another suitable operative to your home. We take responsibility for making sure they are fully briefed on your package, your property and your preferences, so you can rest assured that you will still receive the same high standard of service.


Just to be doubly sure that our clients receive the best possible service, we also employ Quality Control supervisors who routinely check that cleaning sessions are carried out thoroughly and accurately, based on your written specification. If your needs and priorities change over time, it is their job to ensure that your service is adapted accordingly.
