Every month, Torquay Online likes to celebrate someone who is doing well in the world of business in the area. Hopefully by speaking to them we can inspire the next generation of young business people in the area.

This month’s award goes to another hard working young man from the area.

Shane runs S&S Cleaning Services who cover pretty much anything to do with cleaning in the area. This includes:

  • Windows Office cleaning weekly
  • Monthly Kitchen cleans
  • Tenancy cleaning
  • Carpet & upholstery Cleaning
  • Power Washing
  • Roof Cleans
  • One off Builders Cleans
  • Gutter & Facial Cleaning
  • Caravan cleaning

And probably more if you requested it. They have all the latest and best equipment to make sure their work gets the best results, and are available throughout Torbay and Newton Abbot.

I asked Shane a few questions about his busniess so hopefully it’s helpful to anyone who’s looking to start a business in the area.

How did you start S&S Cleaning Services?

I worked for another company for 8 years and was slowly was doing all the work myself. I ended up buying a part from them and then built it up over the years. Because I know quite a lot of people, that helped me get into places and start building the busines up.

I’ve been working in the industry for 12 years now.

How many people do you employ?

I have people who can help out with larger jobs but I try to manage all the work myself.  This ensures that the work will always be done to a high standard.

What are your plans for the future?

In the future we’re going to concentrate on taking bigger jobs and services. We now have the best industrial equipment which covers every type of cleaning.

What is the hardest part of running your own business?

The long days probably. I start as early as 4am and finish late. I also have a family and young kids so it’s non-stop all the time.

Any advice to someone in Torbay looking to get into business?

The best advice would be to make sure you have the work in place. There are so many people experienced people in the area doing the same thing so it might be hard finding the work at first.
