The one cleaning firm that Springs to mind every time: Every business wants to stand out from the rest – and Burton-based Springs Commercial Cleaning Limited is no exception. This independent commercial window and solar panel cleaning company knows why it stands out in a competitive market. Company director Carl Crockford explains the big difference. "Professionalism," he says. "It's something that in our industry is all too rare."
A family business, Springs was established in 2007 with a very clear vision of how a commercial cleaning company could demonstrate professionalism across all aspects of the business. "It's not just about cleaning windows or solar panels properly," Carl said. "Promptness, reliability, courteous staff, timely and accurate administration, transparency when it comes to pricing… there are so many ways in which we strive to 'raise the bar' and excel."
Professionalism is an enduring business philosophy that has enabled Springs to build an enviable reputation and a growing client base across the Burton, Derby, Tamworth and Stoke areas. "We service all commercial sectors and have the skills, capabilities and commitment to offer genuine value," Carl says. "Springs takes pride in providing premium, yet affordable services with focus on customer care," said Carl. "Our team are all highly trained, we are fully insured to £10m and accountability is something we take very seriously."
All Springs staff are qualified, well-equipped and work in line with health and safety best practice, ensuring the wellbeing of all personnel and visitors on site. The company also provides detailed risk assessments and method statements for all clients. "I try to put myself in a client's shoes," said Carl. "If I were a facilities manager or the person within an organisation responsible for arranging commercial window, solar panel cleaning and the maintenance of guttering and fascias on site, I know what I'd expect from my supplier."
"Our standards may be high, but they're shared by those who appreciate a more professional approach and true value for money. "Choose Springs and you can look forward to tailored service contracts, quality monitoring, cleaning conducted out-of-hours to minimise disruption and a 100 per cent satisfaction guarantee on all work."
"The Pure Water system de-mineralises and de-ionises tap water to remove impurities and requires no chemicals or detergents," says Carl. "It's powerful, consistently removing stubborn residues and drying to leave a streak-free finish on glass and surfaces, whilst being gentle on the environment. The results are better and longer lasting."
While clean windows provide a positive first impression, keeping solar panels clean is important if optimal return on investment is to be realised. "Regular cleaning makes sound business sense because dirt can reduce photovoltaic efficiency," Carl said. "We've heard of reported energy yield increases of more than 30 per cent after cleaning, so an annual clean is a small price to pay in the long term." Springs has continued to invest in its staff and is the only local cleaning company competently trained in cleaning solar panels.
