Established in 1992 by Julian Hill, the Calabash Group has grown into a significant organisation by providing the highest quality cleaning and hygiene services in London and the South East.
We look after the office cleaning for many leading companies and high profile brands who for many years have relied on us to maintain their company’s image.
Calabash Office Cleaning was the original core area of business and it remains the largest part of the Group.
Our emphasis has always been to provide the kind of service that will encourage clients to remain with us over many years.
The only way to do this is with regular supervision of our uniquely trained office cleaners, plus closer relationships with our clients. Unusually in our business, our management are contactable at all times and can therefore deal with issues at very short notice.
Under TUPE regulations we often have to take on unsatisfactory cleaning staff when we start a new cleaning contract. With good training, constant encouragement and motivational supervision we have regularly turned these cleaners into valuable and responsible cleaning staff.
Tom Salmon, Operations Director, Calabash Group Services Limited

One of our leading client puts it this way:
“We had heard that people who cannot afford to compromise their standards and must have the very best service choose Calabash; Appointing them to look after our office has meant that we can leave them to professionally manage our daily cleaning service, while we focus on our business.”

"We’ve used Calabash since the introduction of the smoking ban in 2007 to refresh the ceilings in our stores, particularly to ensure full nicotine removal. Nothing appears to be too much trouble for Calabash; it is a pleasure having such a positive team working with us"Len Hodges, Betfred Betting Stores
"During the tendering process, you will hear promises of performance from many companies but few will actually deliver. However, Calabash are unique, in a fairly desperate business, in keeping all their promises. You would be mad not to appoint them."Tobyn Thomas, Thomas’s London Day Schools
"Some years ago we moved to Calabash with Karen because we prefer an independent company, (large multinational suppliers are generally unreliable and inefficient).
