A cleaning firm that specialises in commercial kitchens has drawn praise from an MP after celebrating 30 years in business.
Swiftclean Building Services received a visit from local conservative MP James Duddridge who heard about the company’s work in the “unfashionable” world of kitchen extract systems cleaning.
Managing director Gary Nicholls and fellow directors Julia Argles and Mark Leadbetter showed Duddridge around the company’s Southend HQ and explained how the firm deals with grease deposits in such systems to prevent the risk of fire.
“Any business that is able to survive and thrive after 30 years must be doing something right,” said Duddridge. “But Swiftclean is doing really important work. It’s tough, demanding work but vital in helping protect businesses, staff and customers from the threat of fire. I shall think differently next time I buy a burger, that’s for sure.”
MD Nicholls said the company was delighted to get Duddridge’s support as it continues to grow its business.
“We are aiming to extend our range of services, continue to support public safety where there are commercial kitchens and, of course, continue to create jobs for the local communities where we operate up and down the country.”
Swiftclean claims to be one of the UK’s longest established providers of duct cleaning services, providing comprehensive solutions to a building’s air and water hygiene and fire safety compliance issues.
