Cleaning Scotland


Cleaning Scotland Ltd was established in 2005 and has rapidly expanded to become one of the country’s largest independent cleaning companies specialising in the licensed trade and building/construction sectors. The company was launched by two experts in their respective fields – Managing Director Eddie Tobin is one of the best known and most respected men in Scotland’s licensed trade, and Operations Director, Margaret Callaghan was Scottish Regional Manager for one of Britain's largest cleaning companies for 25 years. They believe that their expertise sets them apart from the competition.

That means: They recognise the need for specialist ‘heavy’ cleaning of licensed premises on a daily basis they recognise the difficulty in sourcing quality cleaners for building companies, but believe they meet the high standards required for builders’ cleans and sparkle cleans.

Cleaning Scotland offers a personalised service at the quality you require, but at a more competitive price than many others. Their service is supported by a quality management team who care about getting it right. Cleaning Scotland personnel are fully trained by Margaret Callaghan and her team is fully insured.
