My grandfather was my inspiration behind building my own team of cleaning fairie- er, professionals. Back in 1984, he built Spruce, a cleaning company based in the UK. I used to help him with his cleaning business.
I quit my job in the corporate world and was perusing a small business to buy, I looked at Cafés, Restaurants, Bars, and then I saw a cleaning run for sale, it was like a light bulb moment – all these memories came flooding back to me about working with my grandad in his cleaning company and I just knew it was right! It was 7pm at night, I called the seller and arrived at her house at 8pm, and by 9pm I had bought a business!
The idea of helping people with their cleaning needs just ignited my dream to follow my grandpa's footsteps and build my own cleaning company.
It might be a small, common dream. Some might think it's boring, because who loves to clean? (We do, okay?!) But years later, here we are thinking about our cleaning projects and our awesome clients, and hoping to meet more in the future.
