The results are in.
Clean for Good has just finished its second full year of business and our turnover was 300% higher than in our first year.
We have been growing consistently over the last two years and we continue to grow.
Like most start-up businesses, when we started in 2017 we didn’t really know what was going to happen.
Cleaning is a very competitive sector. Prices are low. Margins are lower. Yet we started on Day One with a commitment to pay the real Living Wage – making us not only a newcomer to the market but a more expensive one than most of our competitors.
Yet here we are.
Thanks to a steady – and growing – stream of customers we are proving that it is possible to run a professional office cleaning company in London and do so ethically. We are a Living Wage Employer. We also employ our cleaners directly and ensure they have proper terms and conditions – above the legal minimums. We don’t scrape the bottom of the employment barrel so we can enrich shareholders. We have also developed an approach with high environmental standards.
Our customers include Aston-Mansfield, a charity running two of Newham’s busiest community centres, TAP Management, an artist management business (including Dua Lipa!), numerous solicitors and PR businesses, architects, established national charities like The Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings and, most recently, the Bishop of London and her team.
Our customers are the ones who have made our growth possible, so thank you. You are leading change in London.
Every new customer for Clean for Good means more cleaners earning a living wage and working in dignity.
We look forward to working with more of London’s employers in the coming year, providing an excellent service and bringing lasting change to the cleaning sector.
If that might be you, do get in touch – we’d be delighted to quote for you.
Good for customers, good for cleaners and good for London.
