"We engaged the services of Start Afresh cleaning services based in Ipswich, to support us with cleaning/domestic services at the Montrose house residential care home.
The staff who attend are extremely attentive to the needs of our residents living at the project at the same time carrying out the agreed cleaning tasks to a very high standard, the quality of their service is maintained on all visits.
The workers utilise their time to the maximum completing all of the agreed tasks, and confer with the project manager making recommendations for improvement of cleaning systems. It is a pleasure to have such a professional service available on site, and I would not hesitate to recommend their services."

"I contacted Start Afresh when a previously booked cleaning company let us down – I had a film shoot to set up and a filthy set to contend with. From the moment I spoke to Ruth and her team I felt glad the previous company had pulled out! Start Afresh were incredibly flexible, efficient and professional – they manage to pull off the impossible of being both large enough to cope with a demanding job and small enough to really give individual attention. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anybody in need of cleaning help."

"…a big thank you for all the deep cleaning work that you and your colleagues carried out at Fairways last week. The home is now so much cleaner and brighter that it’s almost like being in a new building.
I was very impressed by the high standards of cleaning and thoroughness of everyone’s work. I would also like to thank you all for your considerable patience and professionalism amidst the chaos and activity that went on here last week. The friendly and cheerful approach by you and your team made all the hectic comings and goings so much more bearable."

“Just a note to say thank you very much for your efforts in keeping my house sparkling clean. In all the time you have been cleaning my house I have yet to find one thing I am not happy with. It is so nice to come home to my house all clean and smelling beautiful – it was certainly never this good with my previous cleaner.
The prices are reasonable and my house is always securely locked once you have finished. Thanks again.”

“Denise and Lesley from Start Afresh cleaning services have been looking after our house for nine months now and we are very pleased with their work. They are always friendly and cheerful and put up with the eccentricities of a pair of septuagenarians with great good humour. They also keep the place clean and tidy. We have no hesitation in recommending Start Afresh to anyone needing help with this tedious chore.”
CG and JB, Capel St Mary

“I am writing to thank you for the excellent cleaning service that Susan and Jayne provided when we moved house recently. They were polite, friendly, cheerful and incredibly efficient. They worked around us as necessary and cleaned both our old and new house quickly and to a very high standard. It was so good to know that our new house was clean and of course, wonderful not have to add that to the list of things we had to do over the first few days!”
LP, Essex


“Start Afresh has been a fantastic help to me. Running a holiday cottage requires a reliable team to keep the place ready for the next tenant. Ruth has taken away the constant problems of changeovers at short notice. The house is always prepared to a high standard. I cannot recommend Start Afresh too highly, they are wonderful.”
JK, Aldeburgh


"Start Afresh have provided a high level of cleaning for the residents at our site offering a reliable and thorough service. They are happy to try and help wherever they can and have often carried out jobs that do not fall under their responsibility. I would recommend Start Afresh to anyone and if we managed more sites in the area I would definitely contract them for the cleaning work."

Our cleaner was fantastic and couldn’t have taken greater pride in his work. Even after 3 hours of hard work he wanted to continue and get the job done to his very high standards! Needless to say we are very pleased with his efforts and thank you for training him so well.



Thank goodness for 'Google' I was so delighted to find that you are still about and doing so well, it was like making contact with a good friend you haven't seen for a while, then to have your superb staff do such a wonderful job was the icing on the cake for me. I did thank Sophie, Rachel and Felipe at the time for their hard work and cheerfulness. It was like having a weight lifted from my shoulders to have everywhere clean, sparkling and smelling so fresh. We move tomorrow and Friday, now the unpacking fun begins!! Wonder how long it will take to find a home for everything.

I will gladly 'spread the word' on your behalf. Take care and a huge thank you again.

Warm wishes,
