The company was established in 2006 by Robert & Michelle Hearne, both of whom have worked in the cleaning industry for over 30 years. During their careers they have been responsible for delivering cleaning services to numerous blue chip companies and well-known landmark buildings.
Robert Hearne - Director
I joined the cleaning industry in 1983, working for a small family business in the Croydon area.
In the early days I worked as a mobile cleaner / supervisor and worked my way up to the position of General Manager before leaving in 1990 to Join one of the UK`s largest cleaning companies.
Starting as a Branch manager and then progressing through the company to become a Divisional Director, I had the pleasure of overseeing the cleaning in some of the most prestigous buildings in the country including The Royal Albert Hall, St James Palace, The British Museum and Canary Wharf Tower.
I have obtained a range of industry approved qualifications over the years and am delighted to draw on all my experience to make Smartclean Services a leading cleaning service provider across Sussex.
Michelle Hearne - Director
I started work at Gatwick Airport in 1986, initially in cleaning operations, before moving to an administration role.
While working for one of the UK's largest cleaning services providers for nearly 20 years I carried out various roles, including supervising a payroll team that processed wages for some 3,000 cleaners and managing an administration team looking after window cleaning across the whole of the UK.
I took a career break in 2004 to spend time with my 2 children before starting Smartclean with Robert in 2006.
My experience in administration ensures that our back of house functions can fully support our cleaning operations.
