Real Cleaning Solutions was established in January 2014. The journey began after I moved to Melbourne from Perth so that I could be closer to my future wife. Upon my arrival, I did not have a teaching contract lined up, but joined my local gym as I strongly value fitness. I was training at CrossFit Richmond, but could not commit to an ongoing membership. When I explained my situation to the gym owners, they offered me the opportunity to clean their gym as a contra deal for my membership. Once I had completed a couple weeks of cleaning, they were so impressed that they asked me if I would like to replace their previous cleaner. It was at that point that I saw this as an opportunity to save money for the upcoming wedding that Isabelle and I were planning (February 2015).

I quickly realised that I had an eye for detail and believed that this was something that set me apart from other cleaning companies. It was at that point that I began to research what was required to start a small business. I understood that the industry was very competitive, so I became determined to set the business up to be unique and to stand out from the rest. I began to create cleaning processes and checklists that were specific to the gym that I was cleaning. I’d meet with the owners and ask them how I could tailor my services to suit their needs. This process has not changed, and we continue to work closely with each client to ensure that we meet their every need.

I firmly believed that building strong relationships was pivotal to growing a healthy business and we began to branch out and work with other business owners. I started to get interest from people owning commercial spaces, mixed martial arts and F45 gyms. It was at that point that I began to build a team of like minded individuals to be able to service all our our clients. Business owners were drawn to the fact that we did not apply the ‘one size fits all’ approach to cleaning. We knew that each business was unique and had different requirements when it comes to cleanliness. This is why we would invest time getting to know each client and the needs of their business.

Today we service numerous businesses across Melbourne and are committed to providing the highest quality cleaning service in the industry. We are constantly expanding due to high demand for our services.  Whether it is a gym, commercial space, construction site, insurance builder, end of lease, house clean, emergency or special event… We pride ourselves on being able to meet your cleaning needs. We have a 100% satisfaction guarantee and I strongly believe in our ever-improving systems to further our mission in becoming Melbourne’s preferred cleaning company.
