Hilton Smythe are delighted to present to the market Careclean (Essex), a highly respected independent domestic cleaning company first established in 1984.

The highly successful opportunity is now being offered for sale due to our client’s decision to retire.

The business currently concentrates on the domestic market (95% of the workload) with some commercial work (5% of the workload).

All work is carried out at the customers’ homes or onsite in one of their fully equipped vans.

The business currently offers the following services –

  • Carpet cleaning – Unrivalled service to bring carpets back to life! An 8 step cleaning process is followed (see website)
  • Upholstery cleaning – Restores sofa’s, curtains or other soft furnishings.
  • Leather cleaning – Furniture or any soft furnishings.
  • Rug cleaning – Carried out onsite using the most up to date equipment and cleaning products to ensure rug material is both protected and cleaned in detail.
There is also an optional ‘Protection Treatment’ available to prolong the lifetime of each carpet, rug or soft furnishing.

All of the above services come with a ‘100% Money Back Guarantee’.

The business comes with 3 x technicians who are individually trained by the owners of the business to ensure consistent level of service in all areas.

Our client advises part of the success and unique selling point of this business is the type of customer it attracts. Cleaning services are mainly carried out to the medium to large sized properties with many high income and well known figures as loyal customers.

Included in the sale will be the details of over 10,000 existing and previous customers, many of which receive several visits throughout the year.

There are many other domestic cleaning companies across the country, however one of the significant selling points of this business model is the agreed maintenance contracts in place providing recurring revenue.

Due to the demand from many of the larger houses requiring regular cleaning across the year, our client introduced a maintenance contract where customers can pay a monthly direct debit for services throughout the year.

Our client admits they enjoy many referrals from existing clients however they still continue with a large leaflet drop of around 20,000 houses each month to ensure the diary is kept busy.

As advised, all work is carried out by the field technicians who visit between 3-4 different jobs per day.

We believe there are many further services any new client may look to add to the current model, these include –

  • Wood and Stone flooring cleaning
  • Outside terraces, decking and garden furniture.
  • UPVC window frames and fascia’s, guttering.
  • Cooking equipment, BBQ’s & outside heaters
Currently rugs are cleaned on site however the larger rugs and more expensive would benefit from being treated off site in a more specialist environment with different equipment.

Commercial – Currently a very small side of the business however targeting the many independent public houses, restaurants and bistro businesses located around the existing domestic customers would provide a significant increase in current sales.

The key selling points –

  • Easily transferable business opportunity
  • Low running costs & overheads
  • Fully maintained website (with video presentations)
  • Facebook page (219 followers)
  • 5 Star Google reviews
  • Fully trained team in place
  • Full business handover offered
  • Several options for further growth
  • Opportunity to increase social media presence
  • High end customer base
  • Very lucrative maintenance contracts in place
Very rarely to Domestic cleaning business of this area or level come onto the open market and we therefore highly recommend any serious buyers make an early enquiry to avoid disappointment.

We are advised that the business has 3 full time members of staff. 

The business is currently trading;

Monday – 9:00am to 6:00pm
Tuesday – 9:00am to 6:00pm

Thursday – 9:00am to 6:00pm

Careclean (Essex) is currently run from a small office/storage unit in Chelmsford however the size of the storage facilities required would easily allow for any new owner to transfer the business to their home property.

The business currently covers most of Essex, however our client informs us many of the existing customers are based in the south-east part of the country.

Any new buyer may look to continue with the current postcode area covered or look to expand by crossing over the M25 into areas such as Dartford.

All clients are visited by 1 of the fully equipped vehicles to their own home.

Organising a cost effective journey plan of the territory is key to the efficient running of this business.
