Default Cleaning companies (household) in Dubai

I have been trying to find a reliable company who will come round to my apartment on a fortnightly basis and do a thorough clean.

I researched and called a number and have gone with 'Fastmaid'. They have been twice and to be honest I am underwhelmed by their performance.

In addition, today they got the wrong time, again I had to explain where the apartment was, again I had to go over, in detail what I wanted doing (to the same cleaner that came last time). The standard of cleaning was acceptable but nothing more.

Their receptionist, and the cleaner did not even have a half decent command of English.

I don't really want to work my way through the long list of possibles before finding a suitable company.

Does anybody have the name of a company who will do a good job as well as being able to communicate effectively in English

Thanks

Try Pretty Polly, we use them every fortnight and they do a cracking job.

Do they polish your taps? I always find that very important.
