A CLACKS cleaning company is hoping to help out more in the community after picking up a major award earlier this year.

Elite Commercial Cleaning Services, located in Dollar, was recognised as the UK's best deep cleaning company at this year's Domestic Cleaning Industry Awards.

The awards, hosted by the Domestic Cleaning Business Network, aim to recognise the best of the industry throughout the UK in the past year.

Jenna Trowell founded the company in 2019, tailoring it around her life as a single working mum, and said she was delighted to receive the award after only four years in business.

She said: "We were quite elated when we heard that we'd won. We knew we had put ourselves down for it, but to go on and win is quite a different feeling altogether.

"We were up against some tough competition around the country, some amazing cleaning companies so it is quite amazing to know that we were chosen out of everyone.

"We won an award last year – runner up to the best cleaning company – so we were delighted to have beaten that this year."

Starting off in Dollar, Jenna expanded the business to have locations in West Lothian and Glasgow, employing over 25 workers across the stores.

Since becoming the UK's best cleaning company, Elite Cleaning is hoping to expand the jobs they work on, focusing on vulnerable people within the Wee County.

Jenna added: "In the future, one of our aims will be to help people with mental health issues – hoarding or something along those lines – we love a good deep clean so we want to expand with that.

"We do a bit of work with Clackmannanshire Council, working with adults in social care and helping vulnerable get back on their feet a bit.

"Hopefully, work on more building sites and get a few more contracts and get bigger as we go."

The award ceremony was a black tie event held online on January 26, with winners walking away with engraved glass trophies to celebrate their success.

Amongst the awards up for grabs, entrants competed for best customer service, best newcomer and community champion award.
