Become a Safeclean Franchisee

Who are we and what do we do?
Established in 1965 by sole trader Desmond Cook, Safeclean has now developed into a UK wide network of over 50 franchisees. The Safeclean businesses range from sole traders with a single territory, to Management Franchises that occupy over 5 territories and employ a whole team of technicians. The franchise began its close relationship with Furniture Protection Plan providers, Guardsman in 1985. It then joined the business, becoming Safeclean by Guardsman in 1991.
Safeclean provides overall cleaning, stain removal and protection treatments to carpets, fabric and leather upholstery, curtains, rugs and mattresses. But, you don’t need to stop there. You also have the option to offer additional, specialist services, such as deodorizing and sanitisation, as well as, cleaning and protection to hard flooring. As part of our continuous development, we regularly review business initiatives, including the services we provide and items we treat.

The franchise is expected to be made up of 5 to 10% Guardsman insurance work with the rest coming from both domestic and commercial private work. The insurance work provides access to potential new customers and the objective is to develop regular activity with repeat business, commercial contracts and, most important of all, referrals from satisfied customers.

The items we can service are found in virtually every home, office and building. This means you are literally surrounded by opportunities and with our Head Office team providing business and marketing support, we’ll make sure you seize every one.
