Second Home Cleaning in Sheffield

It’s about peace of mind.

A Second Home is an “escape” away from where owners normally live and work. They still need to be looked after and, of course, cleaned.

This is where Poppies Sheffield can help.

Owning a second home is a wonderful luxury to have, but owning a second home in Sheffield is even more special. Between the rich cultural offerings in the city and the beautiful, vast landscape of the nearby Peak District, Sheffield is one of the UK’s best kept secrets when it comes to family or couple getaways.

Whether your second home is located in the countryside suburb of Fulwood, the picturesque village of Dore or a vibrant city centre neighborhood like St. Paul’s, a second home in Sheffield offers a place of refuge where you can enjoy the city or escape into the countryside with your loved ones.

However, owning a second home isn’t always a bed of roses. Like any property, your second home needs to be cleaned and looked after, checked for maintenance issues, and have its meter readings taken. The upkeep of a second home can be a hassle, especially if you live far away or rent it out to guests throughout the year.

This is where Poppies Sheffield can help. We offer dedicated Second Home services that include taking care of the cleaning and housework, safeguarding your keys and carrying out security visits, inspecting the property for faults or defects, and managing your mailbox and meter readings.

With Poppies, having a second home is a haven, not a headache.

What Second Home Services Do We Provide?


We provide professional cleaning that can include deep cleaning, spring cleaning, general tidying, laundry and ironing, bed-making and defrosting the fridge or freezer. We can clean before, during and/or after your visit, whichever suits you. If your second home requires regular attention, our regular housework service can be delivered on a weekly, fortnightly or monthly basis.


The security of your second home is a high priority. Thanks to our stringent security measures, you can rest assured knowing that your house keys are in safe hands. We assign our clients’ keys a code number and store them securely in a key safe when not in use.

Home security visits

It helps to have someone check up on your second home whilst you’re away, especially if it’s sat idle for long periods. We’ll visually inspect both the interior and exterior of your property, looking out for any signs of accidental damage, vandalism or an attempted break-in. We’ll check your doors, windows and roof, as well as your garage, shed or greenhouse if you own any of them.

Mail forwarding

One of the most common inconveniences of owning a second home is having your mailbox or hallway flooded with mail. Let Poppies forward your important mail to your main address, neatly stack non-urgent mail, and dispose of any pesky “junk” mail that’s been shoved through your letterbox.

Meter readings

Staying on top of your second home’s meter readings can prove difficult, especially if your utility supplier requires them on a monthly or quarterly basis. If you fail to submit your meter readings on time, your supplier will most likely send you an estimated bill which can be significantly above your actual energy usage, meaning you’re overpaying. We’ll make sure your meter readings are submitted accurately and on time so you only pay for what you use.

Appliance maintenance and servicing

From the lights and electrical appliances to the radiators and boiler (which we all know can be a pain in the behind!), we’ll check that everything is in working order so your second home stay goes off without a hitch.

Associated home services

We can also arrange gardening, window cleaning, painting, decorating and chimney sweeping services to help keep your second home in good condition all year round.
