A Stoke-on-Trent contract cleaning company is expanding again as it celebrates its 22nd birthday.
Burslem based 1st Time Clean has taken on ten new cleaners and won eight new contracts in the last few
The Moorland Road business is also experiencing an increase in emergency sanitisation call outs in response
to companies having staff who have tested positive for Covid-19. It’s just one of the services they offer that
they’re expecting a surge in demand on as we head towards winter.
They’ve already seen an increase in demand for businesses wanting regular sanitisation services to ensure
offices are kept as clean and hygienic as possible to help keep their staff safe.
They are waiting to hear on other contract bids and if successful they’re aiming to appoint more staff by the
end of the year.
The company specialises in four aspects of contract cleaning. They are:
- Sanitisation and infection control
- High level cleaning solutions
- Office cleaning
- Kitchen extraction systems
All their staff have completed the relevant training which means customers are issued with industry standard
They have clients all over the UK including Scotland but are growing their customer base across Staffordshire
The family run firm which employs 40 staff nationally, is owned by 45-year-old Clint Parr, who took it over from his father eight years ago. His wife Mel also works for the company.
Clint, who has two children said: “We know how lucky we are to be expanding in what has been such a tough time for so many companies.
“Obviously Coronavirus has put a spotlight on the need for enhanced cleaning procedures and sanitisation processes, especially the emergency call out service. As a result, we have won new contracts across the country and it’s been an exceptionally busy time for us.
“Since our 21 st birthday last year we’ve had a real focus on building our client base in Staffordshire and Cheshire. We’ve invested in marketing and are really glad to see that the investment is paying off as we’re getting more and more work in the area.
“Much of it has come from referrals which we’re really pleased about as it shows how happy our clients are with the standard of work we deliver.
“We’ve submitted bids to win more contracts locally and if we’re successful our aim is to take on more staff by Christmas and invest even more money into new equipment to help us sustain growth. We fully expect to get more calls about emergency sanitisation with the number of Covid cases sadly expected to rise in the coming months.”
