Scott & Jess Burrows and Michelle & Gavin Walker

ServiceMaster Clean Bournemouth
Residential Services partner since 2019

An opportunity arose back in 2019 where an existing ServiceMaster Clean Franchise was looking for new owners. Good friends, the Burrows and Walker families, were looking for a challenge and saw the business for sale as an opportunity to embrace modern ways of working to grow the business.

After working within an existing ServiceMaster Clean business, Phil wanted a taste of that success. As a result, he joined ServiceMaster Clean as a franchisee almost 20 years ago and has built a successful business for himself, just not by himself.

The Carpet and Upholstery Cleaning Market

There are approximately 27 million dwellings across the UK, this multi-million-pound residential market consists of homeowners, tenantsand landlords looking for a solution to maintain the appearance of their carpets, floorings and furnishings.

Carpets, floors and furnishings don’t look fresh forever. In fact, it is recommended that carpets and furnishings should be maintained with a first deep clean up-to 12 months and an annual clean thereafter. This is to help prolong the lifespan of carpets and furnishings at a fraction of the cost to replace them.

This market trend means that ServiceMaster Clean Residential business owners not only benefit from transactional income, but also a recurring income when customers return for repeat services.

What You Need

To be a successful ServiceMaster Clean Residential business owner, you will need discipline to follow a proven business model and the drive and ambition to prosper in a competitive market.

Communication and organisation skills are essential in building a loyal customer base. Our most successful franchisees possess these skills in abundance.

As experience is not necessary, you will need to be open to learning about your new vocation to build up your sector, brand and business knowledge.

The ServiceMaster Clean Residential franchise is a full-time commitment, as such, you’ll need to dedicate much of your time to the business in the early days to build a solid structure to foster a strong culture for growth.

With up to 100% finance available to many (subject to status), financing your new venture could not be more affordable. You do need to be financially secure whilst your business finds its feet in the early days, meaning that you can reap the financial benefits in the future.

Case Study

What made you go in to owning your own business?

To embrace the challenge of growing a great local business that needed a modern approach and we had the confidence to make it happen.

Why did you choose ServiceMaster Clean?

The opportunity arose for us to buy the business.

This made good business sense for us, as the Operations Director Scott had 14 years previous experience from ground level to management. Scott approached the Financial Director, Michelle, and the rest is history.

How has owning your own business impacted your life positively?

Along with hard work and stress, the joy has come from knowing we are providing a great local service that we have become very proud of.

What have been your greatest achievements whilst owning the business?

Re-structuring it to take a more modern approach.

This has been in all areas including, updating IT, adding to the fleet, new equipment for carpet technicians.

We now have a efficient Marketing Department that has developed our digital footprint to include Social Media, webpages, Checkatrade etc.

What are your future growth plans for the business?

We are looking forward to growing all 3 areas of our business- Residential, Commercial and Restore.
