Established in 1992 by Julian Hill, the Calabash Group has grown into a significant organisation by providing the highest quality cleaning and hygiene services in London and the South East.
We have a specialist School Cleaning Division that looks after many leading schools who for years have relied on us to maintain their image.
Our emphasis has always been to provide the kind of service that will encourage clients to remain with us over many years.
The only way to do this is with regular supervision of our uniquely trained school cleaners, plus closer relationships with our clients. Unusually in our business, our management are contactable at all times and can therefore deal with issues at very short notice.
Under TUPE regulations we often have to take on unsatisfactory cleaning staff when we start a new cleaning contract. With good training, constant encouragement and motivational supervision we have regularly turned these cleaners into valuable and responsible cleaning staff.

Read what our clients say
"We have tried a number of companies over the years and our main concern has always been reliability. Calabash have proved themselves reliable and their service personnel are always polite, friendly and professional. As well as fulfilling their contractual agreements with us, there are usually a number of times throughout the year when we need to ask them for additional services. These requests are always met positively. I have no reservations about the service they are providing for us."Ted Townsend, Ardingly College
"During the tendering process, you will hear promises of performance from many companies but few will actually deliver. However, Calabash are unique, in a fairly desperate business, in keeping all their promises. You would be mad not to appoint them."Tobyn Thomas, Thomas’s London Day Schools
"We are delighted with the service we are receiving from Calabash. I would particularly like to thank Lorena who services our soaps etc. She has kept us stocked up in her calm and efficient manner even during our building works when soap dispensers and air fresheners disappeared for a while (and she always remembers the fragrances that we do not like). As one of the faces of Calabash she is a credit to you."Glenis Clark, The Roche School
"We are very pleased with a friendly and professional washroom service we receive from Calabash. Communication is the key and we have the same person who always phones before they service."Adrian Trewhella, Farlington Girls School
"I wanted to thank you for the great washroom hygiene service that we are receiving from Calabash Washrooms, you have a great team there and the quality of the services that our school is receiving is testament to that."Andy Sivyer, Sir William Perkins’s School, Chertsey, Surrey
"Thank you Karen for a continued excellent service and streamlined operation from Calabash. Our clean sanitary bins mean a lot to an all-girls school."Tanya Coleman, Portsmouth High School
"It is reassuring to know that with Calabash looking after our contract we are in safe hands. The quality of the service we receive is outstanding."Julie Burns, St George’s School Ascot
"Mandy is lovely to work with. She is conscientious, thorough and always advises of any concerns. A great asset and the best person we have had on our washroom hygiene service."Sheena Logan, Wimbledon High School
