LEADING LADIES PROFESSIONAL PROMOTION The Queen Of Clean


CATHERINE GREEN started CG Scrubbers over 30 years ago- hence the prefix CG!


A bit about the business: CG Scrubbers was initially an agency finding cleaners for clients, but Catherine soon realised that the only way to have control over reliability and quality was to employ the cleaners herself. She also came to realise that teams of cleaners taking materials and equipment with them worked far better.

CG SCRUBBERS


Rapid House, Wandle Bank SW19 1DW 020 8542 7966 www.cgscrubbers.co.uk


What sets the business apart? Very soon CG Scrubbers evolved to become one of the first domestic cleaning companies to arrive as a team, in a fullt equipped company van, to give the property a thorough ‘top to toe’ and to clean the carpets, upholstery and curtains and clean and polish/treat the floors.


What makes the business stand out? Soon estate agents - both letting and selling - builders, designers, architects, working couples, single people, mothers with large


homes and families and people with pied a terres who lived abroad were using the service. It became a household name and enjoyed a great deal of publicity and in 1989 Catherine was awarded the Trademark for the name Scrubbers. Today the company looks after a huge range of clients on a regular or ‘as you need it’ basis. Catherine is a very ‘hands-on’ manager and aims to provide clients with a quick and efficient service. She checks the staff herself and holds a workmans’ public liability insurance policy. The company covers most of south east, south west, west and north west London.


In the autumn of 2004 Catherine was asked to make a handful of one-minute films on cleaning tips to go out on two morning slots on GMTV. It was great fun and even the family cat – who was called Scrubbie - featured.


So, whatever your cleaning needs – large or small, regular or one off – call Catherine for a chat.

Tell us a bit about your business: I speak fluent French, Spanish and Portuguese and I am learning Arabic. Our business offers clients a unique opportunity to relax in a beautiful luxury villa, learn about the fascinating art, architecture and history of Andalucía with its mixed Moorish and Modern culture, drink and taste the fabulous wines at the villa and at local bodegas and eat stunning food prepared by a Prue Leith trained cook.


We take trips to Córdoba, Ronda and Jerez as well as Málaga and we also discover some of the beautiful white villages. We live in Gaucin, which legend says is where Carmen stayed on the way to meet her lover.


What do you enjoy most about what you do? I have always loved Spain so buying a dream home and setting it up as a business

seemed a natural thing to do. Most of all, I enjoy hosting and meeting fascinating people and watching them relax and enjoy a stimulating stay with us. Groups so far have really enjoyed each other’s company, too.


I have been so lucky in my career. I have taught languages and then art history at Westminster School and Birkbeck College, University of London. During my career I have had three children and taken a PhD in Art History. I have worked with lovely people and been lucky enough to have a supportive husband whose own expertise in both business and art history is crucial to the success of the venture.


What sets your business apart? I think our business stands out because clients feel they get personal attention and they get access to places most tourists don’t see. Our groups of ten are small, unlike those of our competitors and we aim to make people feel special and stimulated.
