About the employer

At the takeover, much of the service was happening by ‘fluke’, rather than having systems in place making the service work. Mike, however, changed that. 

Mike set about designing structured systems to make the company work whilst still running the company.

Over the years that followed Mike recruited a team to run his newly designed systems and continued making improvements and developments before finally putting this new beast that was Clean Slate to the market.

Since then we have continued to grow, continued to evolve and we always continue to improve. We have moved on from a small office above a wig shop in the centre of Derby to a fantastic office and warehouse facility along Raynesway.

We now cover most of the East Midlands from our head office and are no longer restricted to just Derby. Our senior leadership team of four oversee and develop our management team who in turn look after over 200 cleaners and customers.
