Smith & Co. Cleaning Services is a family run business based in Derby and Nottingham. We pride ourselves on delivering a swift professional cleaning service at a competitive price to all sectors of residential and commercial industries.

Where Did It All Start?

"Growing up my step-dad was in the army which meant that we moved house every three years or so. This was not so good for my mum whom had to change jobs every time we moved. I always remember she never had a problem getting work as a cleaner due to her previous experience. I remember she would of been up and out of the house before we had even woken. Cleaning offices before the employees arrived and then late in the evenings after the employees had left, ready for the next day. I remember her various jobs included cleaning schools, dentists, solicitors, libraries, NHS etc. My mums work ethic was ridiculous, she did all the hours that God sent! 

In 2013 I moved to Derby and started investing in property. I quickly found that getting reliable contractors to turn up on time, do a decent job at a reasonable rate was near on impossible! This also went for cleaners and decorators. We just kept getting ripped off and the finish was so poor, numerous times we had to go over it after they had left.

It was at this point that I realised that I was overlooking something. We began with Pat doing a few hours here and there cleaning, also decorating on our own properties.  This service was then extended to a local agent who had also expressed they were also having similar difficulties getting a reliable cleaner. We soon became too busy for just Pat on her own so we recruited more staff to come on board and we formed Smith & Co. Cleaning Service. 

In 2019 Katie Burrows joined our team to help take the business to the next level. Also being in the property industry for over 10 years she knows what landlords and tenants expect before they move in / move out. Her meticulous attention to detail has been the driving force in providing a consistent high quality level of service across all jobs taken on.

Over the last three years our company has grown organically based on word of mouth alone. I am proud to say that we have recently been ranked in the top three cleaning firms in Derby by 'Best Rated'.
