Local entrepreneur, Lee Young, has recently launched My Window Cleaner to over 20,000 homes in Carlisle. Describing the venture as, “going back to what I love most,” Lee has returned to his roots of owning a local window cleaning business with heart – something he did for his community as a way of making pocket money when he was younger. Now, the Carlisle based family man is delighted to bring a premier home services provider to houses in need, understanding the incredible reward that providing services with a smile can bring to a community.
Today, it can be all too common to find a local window cleaner and immediately be faced with the difficulty of ensuring they provide a consistent, high-quality service. Lee previously enjoyed a successful career in hospitality management in both the UK and abroad – with such diverse experience, he has been inspired to make a difference in the community he has called home for over 20 years. In a bid to meet UK’s fast-growing demand for such services, which have seen a 15% rise in the last year alone1, Lee aims to address the community’s need for a family run, trustworthy, reliable window cleaner which also offers gutter clearance, patio jet washing and much more.
“Customer service has always been at the forefront of my professional life – I love it,” explained Lee. “About a year ago, I decided I wanted to run my own business to make a difference in the community. And with the pull of the outdoors being great for my own physical and mental wellbeing, I realised the answer to push myself forward was actually to look back to my youth! My nan brought me up, so the one of the top priorities for the business is to give back and support those in the community with what they physically can’t do. My plan is to make My Window Cleaner a real driver for good in the community. It’s important that I balance my business with people-driven good deeds.
“My Window Cleaner isn’t just a platform for myself – it’ll elevate the whole community’s expectation of what high quality, attentive home services should look like.”
Thanks to its trailblazing approach, online booking technology and integrated AI, My Window Cleaner has been reforming the nation’s expectations of professional, reliable local window cleaning services for over 27 years. With a full DBS check and business insurance, Lee is already providing an exemplary service to those who have discovered the benefit of using a fully insured window cleaning provider. These benefits, combined with Lee’s unwavering commitment and high standards, are driving the delivery of a five-star service to Carlisle’s businesses and communities.
“I’ve done a lot of spot analysis on other local cleaners – there are a lot of one-man bands, but none have the family feel My Window Cleaner brings! I’m so ambitious and plan to grow sustainably – I’ll bring jobs to the area as well as a professional, reliable and trustworthy service. It really feels like a full circle moment to be launching a window cleaning operation in my community. What’s better is that my son is already showing an interest at the age of nine! I hope he grows up seeing the reward in putting smiles on our neighbour’s faces, just like I did!”
