Techclean started trading in 1983 and have become the UK’s leading specialists in system hygiene. 

Cleaning data centres, workstations and such like requires specialist knowledge and expertise and we provide a comprehensive range of system cleaning solutions to diverse customers from FTSE 100’s to government to local businesses, charities, schools and even medical establishments, amongst others. 

We clean workstations, laptops, printers, photocopiers, fax machines, scanners, telephones, EPOS, mixing desks, ATMs and many other system peripherals.

Techclean is also market leader in cleaning computer suites, data rooms and communication centres.

We are constantly looking to introduce new tools and identify new revenue streams to an already successful business and one such innovation is the provision of our misting service to clients. Our product is non-carcinogenic (developed from natural processes) and eliminates over 99% of all airborne bugs.  An excellent additional revenue stream.

In addition, we will provide a confidential asset register service to companies both large and small as an additional service.

Techclean strive to be a customer-centric business offering advice and practical solutions to our customers and are recognised as being an authority in this sector with robust cleaning processes and procedures using products unique to Techclean.

We are SafeContractor and ISO9001:2015 accredited, providing customers with immediate assurance and endorsing our credibility.

The market for Techclean services is huge, the breadth of customers extensive and the number of revenue streams exciting.

Techclean offers one of the best value franchise opportunities currently available.

The role of a Techclean franchisee

Techclean traditionally serves a broad range of customers and offers a comprehensive service to our customers. It would not be unusual for a franchisee to be servicing a government department one day, attending a school the next and cleaning a data room in a FTSE100 company on the third. So, you need to be able to juggle responsibilities, plan, organise and prioritise jobs and be comfortable handling a broad range of customers.

Our franchise package

Techclean is a complete turnkey operation with entry cost of £19,500 + VAT.

We provide a comprehensive business set-up package which includes, but is not limited to:

  • Licence to trade
  • Training – both at Head Office and with existing franchisees
  • Comprehensive Marketing Launch Programme
  • Extensive start-up supplies and equipment
  • Full range of additional marketing and business collateral
  • Website
  • Finance management software
  • Techclean systems and marketing manuals
  • Centralised appointment generation campaign
  • On-going support from a Head Office team with over 70 years’ experience in franchising

Low operating costs and significant profit opportunities

Techclean is a business that can easily be accommodated at home thus removing the cost of business rent and rates. Staff are also paid as and when they are employed on a job.

Some of our franchisees however do prefer their own Techclean unit. 

Whatever your choice you will need your own ‘office space’, a small area for storage of stock and supplies, a PC to run the administration of your business and a business landline.

Franchisee report a net margin of circa 60% and with new products and new markets opening you would expect this margin to grow.

What we look for in a franchisee

No previous cleaning experience is required as full training is given. We’re looking for individuals with a strong work ethic and who are willing to follow a proven business model. The ideal Techclean owner will be good with people and have an aptitude for sales and marketing.

You will be joining a business that has a proven success record, longevity in the marketplace and impressive profit margins and you will be joining a team that prides itself on its franchising history, on its business systems and most importantly on its reputation for supporting franchisees throughout their business career.
