Customer Delight Runner Up Gatwick Diamond Business Award 2018


Last month, I was about to write this very blog when we had three wonderful pieces of news and I decided to write about them, rather than this – which I will call my Ranting Blog.

The reason for my main dealerships!

Cleankill receive Gold Standard Investors in People award

I had some very bad experiences with customer service recently and I did have an entire blog drafted in my mind about the importance of putting the customer first but then we had some great news. In fact, we have had three pieces of great news in the last couple of weeks and so the customer service blog will have to wait until next month. Be assured, though, I will be venting my spleen in due course.

Awards and Exhibitions

A new year heralds the commencement of many things and at Cleankill this includes the start of the 2018 promotional diary. Last April I wrote about a few busy weeks in May when we attended a number of business exhibitions and award ceremonies.

Clive on drums!

Something a little different this month. There isn’t one serious theme but a collection of non-work-related things we’ve been doing in December.

Technician in wasp personal protective equipment (PPE)

At the end of September, I was asked to give a speech in front of the Sutton United Business Club luncheon group. The event attracted 76 delegates from 62 Sutton-based businesses. I decided to talk on a range of subjects, starting with a general overview of modern pest control and British attitudes to pest control.

'Innocent' Bed Bug (for once...)

Last month I wrote about the problem of identifying who was at fault in cases of rented property and bed bug infestations. During the blog I alluded to the problem of ‘phantom biters’, something every pest controller has had to deal with at some time or other, and I thought this might be a good topic as Halloween approaches.

Bed bug infestation

Those of you who have been following my blog for some time will know I have a particular dislike for bed bugs. In March 2016, I wrote a long blog about how I’d noticed bed bugs has been taking over the news. To read that blog, click here.

Last year, you may remember Clive Bury telling us about the day he volunteered to help at The Supercar Event, held at Top Gear Testing Track, Dunsfold Aerodrome, Surrey.

When a customer called us to help solve a mysterious smell that was beginning to seep through the house we didn’t anticipate quite such a challenging job.

But the Cleankill team is never afraid of a challenge even though the situations we find ourselves in sometimes would make you come close to vomiting.
