Who Are We?

Charlie Mowat founded The Clean Space in 2003, with one goal in mind. Having looked at the industry and seen the way that many commercial cleaning companies mistreat and exploit their staff, he knew there had to be a better way.

So he embarked upon a mission to create an ethical cleaning company, based on the core belief that staff members should be respected, valued and treated fairly. His belief is that if we look after our people, our people will look after you.

Since then, The Clean Space has evolved into a multi-million pound business, servicing over 700 clients across the UK.

Our unique approach of prioritising people over profit makes us one of the most exciting, innovative and fast-growth companies in Britain, which is why we are the first commercial cleaning company to make the prestigious Leap 100 list.

The Clean Space is a business with personality. We’re a friendly, professional team of approachable and ambitious individuals, united in our mission to be the best, most distinctive cleaning company in the UK.
