Pressed for Time Cleaning Services brings military standards to the private lettings and holiday lets sector
Pressed for Time has had a very successful year, despite the many lockdowns and restrictions. Samantha puts this down to the work she has been doing with her new business coach and the extra time she has had with her team.
She said, ‘When we first got the news that the country was going into lockdown, it was a real shock, like it was for everyone, but my business depends on the cleaners going into people’s homes and people moving house, or being re-posted, which meant we initially took a massive hit.’
It was then that Samantha, someone who is ordinarily constantly on the move and busy with the logistics of her business took the chance to develop her business and her team. Rather than spend her time worrying, she invested it in planning and goal setting for the future, and ‘polishing up’ her team’s cleaning techniques.
One year on and Samantha’s clear strategies have paid off as she moves on with her plans to continue the growth she has already seen over the past few months. With a new intake of highly trained professional cleaners she is ready to show the private lettings and holiday lets sector what a military standard clean looks like.
‘We’ve spent the last month training up the new team members on deep cleaning techniques. They will also be managing our military march-out cleans so their skills and attention to detail have to be top notch to satisfy those very specific and particular sign-off procedures.’ Samantha Allen
Spring has proven to be a popular time for house moves, with people now being able to make the move they had to delay last year. And with approximately one third of the 23.5 million homes in the UK being rented (Statista), there is no sign of the moving slowing down soon.
Samantha looks forward to a brighter and happier year, with all of her existing clients back, and new ones coming in;
‘There have been some scary moments over the last year, but I’m confident that my business coach has prepared me for the work I need to put in now, and with my team’s expertise and genuine care for their work, Pressed for Time can definitely raise the standard for end of tenancy cleaning – Bring on your worst!’
