Established in 2015 to serve property management companies, Little Duck Cleaning Services are a Carlisle based cleaning company serving commercial and domestic clients in the North East and Scotland.  “As a new company with high growth ambitions in a competitive market, I knew we had to do something to stand out against our competition” said John Baird, Managing Director of Little Duck Cleaning Services.

For contractors that want to enhance their reputation for health and safety, SafeContractor, the UK’s leading health and safety accreditation, verifies their compliance and connects contractors to leading organisations through an online portal. This enhances their profile to hundreds of companies that only work with SafeContractor members, saves time and money when bidding on new tenders and gives them the peace of mind that their health and safety practices are complaint with the law.

“We were aware of SafeContractor for some time but finally decided to join in January 2019. Since then the accreditation has helped to enhance our reputation for health and safety and raise the profile of our business, opening lots of new doors to leading property management companies in our area.”

“I’m so busy managing the business day-to-day, it can be time consuming and costly to submit new tenders each time. However, now I can simply show my SafeContractor certificate, saving me both time and money.”

In addition, as a growing business, Little Duck Cleaning Services have access to a whole host of benefits such as free legal, HR, health and safety advice and a range of discounts to help their business.

“With three vans running full time I’m looking forward to taking advantage of the fuel card discount” continued John.

Gemma Archibald, Director of Alcumus SafeContractor said: "Major organisations simply cannot afford to run the risk of employing contractors who are not able to prove that they have sound health and safety policies in place."

"We’re thrilled that Little Duck Cleaning Services has joined our community of 32,000 contractors. The firm’s high standard has set an example which hopefully will be followed by other companies within the sector. SafeContractor plays a vital role in supporting our clients in meeting their compliance needs, whilst working with their contractors as they progress through the accreditation process.”
