When we started Evolve Cleaning, although we had a general idea of what we wanted our business to become we jumped in without a clear road map! If you asked us then, about our future, I am pretty sure it wouldn’t reflect what we have achieved thus far!
However, one thing that has remained unwavering is the desire to have a minimal impact on the environment and ensure that the products we use and the choices we make, are aligned with our customers. We consider ourselves as eco-conscious because we understand that sometimes there are certain products or methods that we cannot avoid using in order to complete a particular cleaning need (click here for our services). We also drive diesel guzzling vehicles; this is pure practicality as we are not in a position to afford fully electric cars and actually have no way of charging them at our base. When these issues are resolved, this is a route we will of course explore in more details.
We were also keen to collaborate with other other local firms who share a similar ethos to ourselves. We were lucky to meet Alex and Emma from Elmkind who are based in Dawlish. Like us, they are a family run, local business and are “dedicated to providing honest, natural and beautiful cleaning products.” We love their products, with no single use plastics, refill options and sustainable aluminium bottles – the latter being particularly handy when lugged around a building site!
We often reflect on our past business plans and journey, learning we can improve and make small, strategic changes. It can sometimes be frustrating to realise that we are not where we feel we should be! However, this is common for smaller and growing businesses! What we do take comfort in, is the consistency of our core values of offering a high end cleaning service, providing excellent customer care and support, and all the while minimising our environmental impact.
Here at Evolve Cleaning, where we take pride in providing you with exceptional cleaning services while prioritising your health and the environment. As a family-run business, we have been operating for several years, offering high-end cleaning solutions using eco-conscious products. Our journey began with a simple desire to be our own bosses and to deliver a service that truly makes a difference.

We are often asked to do just a quick clean, “don’t worry it just needs a quick once over!” It is never, nor should ever be a quick once over! It usually comes down to people’s perception of what clean is, how involved the cleaning process can be and a concern that it may cost more if too much time is taken. Rest assured if your cleaners really did just give it a once over, you would complain the job hadn’t been done.
So, let’s look at each of the above in turn, starting with what clean is. Surfaces can look clean and indeed may be disinfected, but what about behind the kettle, the top of the drawer or down the cracks. These are all areas that may appear clean but ask a friend to make a cuppa and what might they find lurking behind the kettle and in the cutlery drawer?!
How hard can the cleaning be, a quick wipe over and its done?! This is true and cleaning in general is not quite rocket science but it does require thought and consideration. Imagine that your brand-new stainless-steel hob or shiny kitchen cupboards are cleaned with the wrong type of product and cloth, suddenly they’re not looking so clean and those scratches will never come out!
It will be cheaper if its quick! Well, this may be true, but you should be paying for the value your cleaning team offers. If they do a speedy, rushed job, the chances are you that job will need repeating at further expense and even at the expense of the company’s reputation, all because it turns out that it wasn’t actually just a quickie!
