Fast Action Services Ltd trading as CleanKing is a privately owned dynamic cleaning company headed up by Paul Hillman. Paul has over 20 years of cleaning expertise, and decided to incorporate CleanKing in 1999 after spending his former years sub-contracting to larger cleaning companies. His role for these cleaning companies was to facilitate million pound cleaning contracts. This involved the initial staffing and management needs, and overseeing the day to day running of the contracts until the clients were happy that the contract was running smoothly. The move to incorporate the company was to secure his own customer base, the value and service he placed on customers was not matched by the larger companies.
Paul was joined by a long term friend and now Operations Director, Stephen Rafferty in January 2015 and a year later Operations Director, Gregg Chandler also came on board. Both Gregg and Stephen have worked in the cleaning industry for over 20 years having both previously worked at ICM in Hampshire, they each brought a wealth of knowledge and expertise in running multi million pound cleaning contracts.
In 2011, CleanKing moved to their current office and on the 1st October 2015 the company purchased the office block next door which allowed them to expand.
In Summer 2018, Fast Action Services Ltd purchased Millards Cleaning Services. Millards is situated in London and has been operating for over 100 years. Steeped in history and based in Charing Cross Road, Millards is headed up by Gregg Chandler, Operations Director. The ultimate aim of Fast Action Services Ltd is to grow the business even further over the coming years ahead as we believe in investing in the Group and its staff.
CleanKing has now grown to its present size and developed a large industrial division and a specialised restoration division. This has been achieved by providing high quality, value for money service often going above and beyond the “norm” for its clients. 2015 has seen the company double it’s turnover.
CleanKing’s strength is the companies diversity, not only can it clean your office on a daily basis but with it’s many divisions is able to cover all aspects of your cleaning requirements from window cleaning, carpet cleaning, kitchen deep cleaning, etc. and they even have a Restoration Division that can look after your specialised flooring, e.g. sandstone, terrazzo, wood and marble, thus making it the complete cleaning company.
Between CleanKing and Millards, the companies cover the Home Counties and London, the industrial and restoration divisions covers the whole of England and Ireland. The passion and consistent approach to quality can be supported by the growing list of clients such as Homebase, Boots, Argos, JM Scully and many other satisfied customers.
The hard working management style reflects through Paul, Stephen and Gregg who are all available to both customers and staff 7 days a week. CleanKing has built up a work force that is both loyal and professional, which is waiting to work for you.
"Clean King certainly live up to their name. The team here have completed many builders and sparkle cleans on various retails and food hall projects for me. The level of detail and effort that the guys deliver is first class, I have complete confidence when they’re on site. The office team also provide hassle free planning and good onsite documentation.”

"From the first meeting with Paul Hillman and his PA Cheryl Hackney it was clear to see the passion and processualism that is at the forefront of the ethos of CleanKing, Paul listened to our requirements and went away and within 24 hours I received their proposal which was exactly what we required and more.
His proposal was concise and gave us options to enhance the deliverables within the timescales that we discussed and highlighted additional added value items that we had not thought of. Paul’s knowledge of the Homebase portfolio of stores across the estate was extremely impressive, he knows the store so well !
The teams communication on all aspects of the delivery is first class, at every stage of the project works pre start, on site and post I was kept informed of works progress. Feed back from the store colleagues has always been positive and that the site team were polite, professional and helpful.
My expectations of the finished state of the existing flooring (which was in a poor state) was exceeded each and every time! The flooring that had in some cases been laid for in excess of 10 years was restored to look as it had just been installed.
CleanKing are a company that go above and beyond in their delivery of a project and are an integral part of my supply base and I whole heartily would endorse them to any company that are looking for a one stop cleaning supplier.
I look forward to working on many more projects with Paul and his team in the coming months and years.”

"Cleanking have been our cleaning provider for a number of years now and have only got better as the years have passed. The onsite DBS checked team are professional, diligent and flexible, adapting to the ever-changing environment within a busy School and handling one off events with ease. Having a professionally cleaned school, well cleaned and taken care of makes a huge difference to the way the school is treated by students and staff and how it is perceived by visitors and parents. We regularly receive very positive feedback about the standard of cleanliness of the School which is predominantly down to Cleanking. "
