Michael said: “Things have been very good for us and we’re really grateful for everyone who has supported us and helped us grow during this time.
“We were so happy to win the award from SME as Best New Coming Business.
“It was because that we had to grow in very turbulent times during our first year of business.
“That was also the lockdown so things weren’t as easy as we hoped.
“In the end Covid really turned things around for us and we came flying into this year.
“Flying out of the blocks.
“We were once a one-man band and now there are seven of us.
“The award was for the progress we were making as a business in these challenging times.
“Not only that but our portfolio has expanded and we aren’t just about cleaning buildings.
“We offer conservation and construction work for roofs, as well as cleaning. We offer both sides.
“People might not know that services like this exist so we wanted to get out there and let them now.
“People won’t have to buy a new roof when they can have it cleaned by us.
“We like to consider ourselves unique after we spotted the niche market.
“MitieClean wants to get out there and if the jobs right we’ll do it anywhere.
