Franchise Info

tidal window cleaning franchise

Tidal Cleaning services was founded in 2016 by Ralf Hodgson. Customers immediately loved his consistent friendly and reliable service and easy payment methods; “Finally, a window cleaning company that is not afraid to make life easier by applying technology to an ‘out of date’ service!”.

The increased demand meant that Ralf soon needed more pairs of hands, which is when he then decided to go nationwide and show others how they can start their own business in this industry too.

Since then, Tidalk has grown to 10 members of staff in Head Office and have over 20 franchisees from the Highlands in Scotland to the coast of Bournemouth.

We are driven by our passion to help people start business in the window cleaning industry and to provide our customers with the highest possible standards.

Hear from our franchisees

“I’ve been a part of Tidal for 8 months now, and I couldn’t be happier! Quitting my old job and starting with Tidal during the beginning of a pandemic made me hesitant. I have been shocked by the results I achieved in such a short period. I have always felt supported and have such a great relationship with the members of the team. If you want financial freedom and flexibility, join this fantastic team and take your business to the next level.”  Adrian Codita, Cambridge

“I’m thoroughly enjoying starting my own business with Tidal. It’s been amazing and very exciting! All of my customers are great. You could say they’re like friends! The team are marvellous. I just wish I’d done it a long time ago as I might have been retired by now. I had over 150 repeat customers booked within the first three months.” Keith Stewart, Bournemouth 

“Having just completed my first year as a Tidal franchisee. I can honestly say joining the Tidal family was the best dissension I made for my family and me. Once I had shown an interest in Tidal, I received a call from the girls in the office. They made a big decision easy to make. I started whilst still at Tesco. Within 4 months, I had enough customers to leave. It felt amazing. A lot of hard work, but if you’re willing to work, it pays off.” Alex Baklessis, Stockport
