Office Cleaning – About Us

Shawcare Cleaning Services is a commercial cleaning company founded in 2003 and run by two directors.

The directors span two generations, which allows for old school values and work ethic along with forward thinking and innovation. The initial strategy was to major in office cleaning, but 17 years later, the company has evolved to service all types of commercial businesses and properties.

Customer service, attention to detail, communication and training form the core structure of the business, delivered by a dedicated team of contract managers. With extensive experience in recruitment and people management, Shawcare Cleaning Services are in a position of being able to manage all our cleaning contracts on a personal level.

We provide commercial cleaning services to towns and cities local to our offices in Wetherby, such as Leeds, York, Bradford and Sheffield, but have attracted business from the whole of Yorkshire along with Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
