GRIME fighters who are waging a war on rubbish are going from strength-to-strength.

GrimeFighter’s Exterior Cleaning is a specialist cleaning and ground maintenance company that offers a variety of services to residents across Cumbria.

The services offered by the Barrow company include drive cleaning, roof moss removal, ground maintenance and pressure washes.

The company had been led by Matt Blackburn since November, who has enjoyed a successful past seven months of business and trade.

Matt said: “Over the past seven months the support from locals has been fantastic and we've been doing two or three jobs every day, except weekends as that's time spent with my daughter.

“My aim now is to employ another full-time person to join the team so we can continue to expand the company, we do cover all of Cumbria and Lancashire currently but to be honest most of our work is in the Furness Area and we can't currently keep up with demand.

“We do both residential and commercial exterior cleaning and we've recently completed work at McDonalds, Burger King and recently we cleaned the 'Wave Wall' at the Dock Museum too which now looks nearly as good as it did when it was built 30 years ago.

“We offer many different services such as hot pressure washing, sanding, sealing, soft washing, roof moss removal and grounds maintenance, more details can be found on our Facebook page and website although the website is not finished yet with being so busy cleaning there isn't much time left in the day for admin.

“Being a small business owner, we have to wear many different hats to make the business work and my priority at the moment is to expand the team and invest in more equipment.

“I've already invested over £40,000 in equipment to get the very best cleaning results for our customers.”
