So how did it all begin? I started my working life in the city of London as a broker, driven by money and success. I met my girlfriend who became my wife and we had our 1st child. Four months into her little life she was unwell and she was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis, a life limiting illness. This obviously changed my whole outlook on my life, reliability became number one priority. I needed to be there for her no matter what. I left my job as I felt money and working long hours were no longer important to me. I wanted to spend as much time as possible enjoying my family.
I started valeting cars, I have a passion for prestige cars and enjoyed cleaning them, and I found it therapeutic! I used to clean a fleet of 5 cars for a family who owned their own building company and was asked if I had ever cleaned after builders had completed their work? I replied ‘no’ but would be eager to try. To this day we still work together on projects.
I enjoy watching football and met a gentleman in my local pub, I could not believe it but we hit it off and became friends even though we support different teams! After numerous conversations we got talking about work, he told me he was a site manager for a big building company and asked me to come to site and quote for cleaning works. I did, another working friendship was born along with Elite Commercial Cleaning.
To date we have cleaned numerous residential and commercial buildings from £100K to our biggest to date £14M, from the centre of London to Cambridge we service all surrounding counties of Essex and provide a hardworking, professional, friendly but most important of all to us, RELIABILE. As the owner I make sure I am on site with anyone working with me, I make sure the work is scheduled and completed on time. I keep the Managers up to date, take before and after photos and make notes. I am a perfectionist and only the best will do!
