Since the beginning of May, Mike has acquired more than fourteen new clients from the Marlborough area, increasing his total monthly cleans to approximately three hundred. 

The company provides a bespoke and tailored service that offers cleaning, tidying, laundry and ironing.  Since taking over the business in 2016, Mike has doubled his workforce and now employs 30 local professional housekeepers, all DBS checked and working in teams of two and three to ensure reliability and client peace of mind.
Mike hopes that the business will continue to grow over the coming years, and has plans in place to move into a second premises in Marlborough.

 “I’m so proud to be celebrating my third year in industry and to have built a business that is recognised as one of the largest domestic professional housekeeping services in Newbury.  Through our expansion, I’m thrilled that our first-class service will now be able to reach even more people across Marlborough and surrounding areas.

“The push into Marlborough has not only allowed us to reward our current staff with several internal promotions but has also meant we now have the capacity to welcome even more people into our ever-growing family of professional housekeepers. It’s fantastic to be able to create employment opportunities for local people and to be delivering an exceptional service at the heart of the community.”
