Testimonials about our Essential Clean Team

Clean Team




Thank you so much for the very quick response to our request.  I can only compliment the two guys who came over to clear up the area; they were extremely polite, very helpful and a credit to your organisation.



We have ahaggis-Hostels-small-logo-webn ever recurring problem of people urinating in our stair. On 3 occasions in 2 days over this weekend. Thankfully the clean team were on hand to sort it out. They carried out an excellent job and each time within 30 minutes minimising any effect on our guests.

We are very thankful to them for the great job that they do!

Many Thanks, All the team at Haggis Hostels.

I just wanted to say thank you to one of your employees, Cliff, who saw me struggling with some very heavy bags this afternoon in St. Andrew’s Square and offered to assist me. He very kindly took the heaviest bags for me and helped me carry them to the store on Multrees Walk where I work. I really can not thank him enough; he was an absolute gentleman and a credit to you. If only more young men were like him!

James did a great job in cleaning our basement area at 91 George Street.  It usually looks a mess after the weekend with rubbish finding itself down there, so it was much appreciated yet again.

Had a look at the back entrance and it looks great.  If this could be done regularly, that would be much appreciated.

They were superb, fast, efficient and friendly. Nothing was a bother.

The guys were round this morning and done a great job, we cant seem to track down the people who keep dumping there so your continued help is appreciated.

Thank you to both Cliff and Tam who made a fantastic job of cleaning out all three basement areas.

They got the job done and customers were still able to come and go.


Tiso-logo-small-webThe team did a great job without any grumbles and it was a pile of excrement they were asked to remove from the pavement outside our fire exit/goods in door.

haggis-Hostels-small-logo-webHi Essential Edinburgh.

A massive thank you again to The Essential Edinburgh Clean Team. Chris from The Clean Team attended at 18:20 to clean and disinfect our stair after another incident of urine found in our stair and doorway.

We had an arrival of 34 ladies tonight from Finland. Thanks to The Clean Team they will not be greeted by disgustingly smelly and unhygienic doorway stair.

Thanks again!!!

Absolutely fantastic job…thanks to you and your team, the area is clean and clear and the operative also passed me a card for future reference.  He also updated me that he would go back and see if we he can sort out the graffiti that is still on our building.

Much appreciated…


Hi there

I am just writing to confirm that Cliff, one of your employees, has cleaned down our doorway this morning, as there was vomit in the doorway when I arrived at the shop. This service he provided was so much appreciated and is a fantastic asset to George Street. I could not be more grateful!



Clear difference made after removal of chewing gum.

Many thanks

They always do a great job!  Thank you for your support.


Thanks for always supporting the store – we really appreciate the speed and commitment of your team.


Thanks to Tom and Cliff for cleaning our office basement

I just wanted to say what a great job Tam and Cliff have done again in cleaning our basement area this afternoon, and for doing it without being asked was greatly appreciated.

With being a basement area on George Street, it is amazing how quickly the area seems to fill up with rubbish, especially after the weekend, so it really is a service we value.

Our basement was cleaned last night by Cliff & Tam to a very high standard.


A great job done on a cold and very windy night, not an easy task with all the leaves that had gathered.

Thank you again for a great service

Quantum-PCWEB‘I promised I would email and offer feedback on service received today. I called the only tel number I had at the time and spoke to Tam Kerr. I had a beggar outside our business, making a nuisance of themselves and throwing nut shells all over George St Pavement. By the time Tam walked along, the Beggar had gone but Tam cleared up mess immediately.

Again, really impressed with service and speed of Essential Edinburgh’.

Many thanks

The basement was in a bit of a mess (I was always meaning to get round to it!!!!) and I just wanted to advise they did a fantastic job and it was a delight to see the outcome of their hard work on their departure.

In these days of “only bad news” being told I felt it only fair to congratulate both James & Chris on a job VERY well done’.

The-Merchant-Company-logoDear Essential Edinburgh,

Earlier this morning I telephoned to ask if you could help with removing a ‘white-substance’ from a low wall in front of our premises. A very helpful response was followed by a very quick visit from your team. It was identified as wax from skateboards and Cliff was assiduous in removing most of it and said another visit would be made to remove the remaining wax.

Thank you very much indeed.

Best regards
