I am in the process of moving in to a 2 bed house. On Monday 19/7/21 I contacted so many cleaning companies who all said it would be 2-3 weeks before they will be able to give me a quote.
I came across Quidos cleaning services on Facebook Marketplace on and they came out and gave me a quote on the same day. 2 days later they have spent the whole day in the house which is now gleaming.
I would definitely recommend Quidos Cleaning. I wouldn’t have known where to start.
Thank you again 😀

Cj'z Hair & Beauty has now had its second three phase anti-viral sanitising treatment by Quidos Cleaning Services and I am over the moon with the service and the outcome. The health and safety was clearly explained and implemented and the salon was left sparkling and smelling amazing. Thankyou for a very professional service and we will look forward to seeing you next month. Highly recommended.

A huge thank you for yesterday! My boss needed a domestic deep clean at very short notice. Not only did you accommodate us and send a deep clean team to the property within a few hours, he was over the moon with the results. Very professional, punctual and thorough leaving the property gleaming and smelling very fresh and clean. Thanks again and highly recommend 👌

After unexpectedly becoming a victim to the current pandemic we unfortunately had to close the Waterfront Fish Restaurant on the fish Quay, North Shields pending a deep clean sanitizing treatment. I contacted Quidos Cleaning Services after numerous recommendations about their service. They were very accommodating and arranged a rapid response consultation and sanitizing service. The full restaurant including the food preparation area was sanitized from top to bottom the following day. A very thorough and professional service producing COSHH assessments for the anti-viral chemicals used which were suitable for health care and food processing areas. A well explained and safety conscious service with the added bonus of the receipt of sanitization certificates illustrating the harmful viruses and bacteria the restaurant had been treated for. Thank you to the Quidos team and highly recommend.

Thanks to Rachel and her team my house is back to best !!
It’s not the everyday jobs it’s the deep cleaning the skirting boards, coving, ornaments and the bits you miss because you’re always in a hurry.
I can’t thank them enough for bringing my home back to life and what a real treat to walk into after a day at work. Thank you
