Meaningful Accreditations

Many companies and industries obtain accreditations.

What is an accreditation? An accreditation involves the assessment of the competence and impartiality of an organisation and the compliance of their work to nationally and internationally recognised standards or schemes.

Not all companies want this or need this. This can hinder a business opportunity and selection of tender. Some companies only require the accreditation(s) to gain an opportunity.

Carpeting your home, office or workplace can make your environment warm and inviting, but carpet fibres are a breeding ground for bacteria, odours and allergens.
At GLC Cleaning Ltd we provide the best professional, friendly and guaranteed carpet cleaning service. We strive to remove dirt, odours and stains from all carpeted areas, leaving behind a fresh vibrant look and fragrance for a fair price.

We recommend carpets should be cleaned on an annual basis, more depending on your environment: offices, workshops, or childcare. Keeping up with regular carpet maintenance will help destroy offensive odours, lessen discolouration and prevent the need for your business or home fitting new carpets.

We use a three-stage extraction process: stain removal, agitation, hot water extraction.

Environment impact – Commercial and Office Cleaning


As we all make every effort to lessen our impact within our environment. At GLC Cleaning ltd and as a contract cleaning service provider, we review and implement cleaning products and systems that will create less waste

When ordering our products and our suppliers delivering items to many customers for the GLC Cleaning staff. We take into consideration the less we can order, less packaging, less plastic bottles, less deliveries and less fuel used assist towards better company practice.

Whether at a commercial or office cleaning site, informing and educating our staff how to use products correctly is a good start. As and when the trigger spray bottles are empty, these plastic containers are not disposed but refilled with a concentrated dose of product and diluted with water, ready to be used again. Alternatively we can use a biodegradable sachet.


Meet Jack our Cleaning Manager

My First year with GLC Cleaning Ltd, on 1st September 2021, I made the decision to join Scott at GLC Cleaning Ltd. Moving from retail and customer service into the cleaning world.

Excited to get started, Scott took me through what life is like to manage cleaning contracts, meeting new and existing clients, overseeing staff at site and recruiting new members to the team. We travelled all across Essex from the seaside towns of Frinton/Clacton as far as Ilford, Brentwood, Colchester and Braintree. I spent a lot of time learning our responsibilitieshigh quality cleaning and doing the right thing for our clients and staff, not too far from what I had already learnt from years in retail.

Once the meets, greets, learning and settling period, it was time to begin our one offs. These could be anything from high level cleaningcarpet cleaninghard floor scrubbingdeep kitchen cleanscovid disinfection, and school cleans.

My favourite of these is definitely the carpet cleaning. Scott took me through the use, training and risk assessments to use the machinery. For our carpet cleaning process, we use a pre-spray on the carpets to begin to break down the dirt and a highly effective stain remover where needed. We run over the sprayed carpets with our Truvox Multiwash, which scrubs deeper into the fibres to provide a better clean. Then its time for our main machine, “carpet machine”, to use its inline heated water, carpet shampoo granules and odour removal concentrate. Getting sprayed between the fibre with a twin jet, high pressure wand and immediately vacuumed out, along with the dirt.

Carpet cleaning takes time to do right and sometimes several passes on the same area to get the high quality results we want for GLC Cleaning Ltd and our clients, but seeing the end result makes it worth while and a good day worked.
