Carlton Cleaning was started as a business in 1985 by Martin Dutson. This man and his team knew how to clean things properly and the business steadily grew up over the years to become one of the most respected and well-liked businesses in the area.
Sadly, Martin passed away in 2016 and the future of the business was placed in the hands of his son Lewis Dutson, who today is our Managing Director.
Lewis didn’t just inherit this business, more importantly he inherited his father’s work ethic, his level of professionalism and his desire to make it successful by guaranteeing work, looking after clients properly and taking care of staff above all else.
These days, Lewis may well be the Managing Director of Carlton Cleaning, but he remains completely hands on, he’s involved completely and is intrinsic to the development of the business.
His philosophy is simple … ‘never ask a member of the team to do something that you’re not prepared to do yourself’ and it’s why he’s as comfortable out on a job in overalls as he is meeting the accountant in a suit … in fact he prefers being out on a job if we’re honest.
Today, Carlton Cleaning is still one of the most respected businesses in Plymouth and the surrounding areas and that’s because Lewis has moved the business on, he’s taken it forward and he’s prepared for the next chapter. We believe that’s not only a fitting tribute to Martin, but it’s a lasting testament to Lewis.
There’s ‘clean’, then there’s ‘Carlton Cleaning clean’.
