Celebrating 30 Years in Window Cleaning

This business is built on my foundations of honesty.

Here's a short biography of the business

April 1987 I started out window cleaning with a borrowed ladder a bucket, leather and duster from under the sink.


At the time I was single, 26 years old and living with my parents in the village of Authorpe. I did all sorts of jobs, including rabbit breeding!

Two months later I met a young lady who, a year later, became my wife. Just before we got married, we decided to sell up the rabbits and concentrate on window cleaning. I got rid of the two cloths and bought a "professional window cleaning kit", consisting of a squeegee and washer.

Christmas 1988 we found out we were expecting a baby and spring 1989 we spent time canvassing local villages. I didn't take long to build up a healthy round; a young man with his wife expecting certainly won the sympathy vote!

July 1989 our daughter was born. We were living in a village and had a spread-out village round. In 1992 we decide to move to Louth and purchase 28 Holmes Close. I was fortunate enough to be given some work in Louth and it soon grew.


A lot has happened since then:

2003 I set up the Limited Company D.Salkeld.Ltd

2006 I invested in the water fed pole equipment.

2016 I have eventualy got a good team working for the business


These two changes have made me look at the business differently. I have changed from David the window cleaner to D.Salkeld.Ltd Window Cleaning Business. I do not intend to disappear into a high office where the customers never see me. I intend to build the business on my principles of providing a good, honest service.
