A Short History of 1800 CLEANER

It was 1986 when Michael Sweet started his first cleaning run in the leafy streets of Beecroft, knocking on doors and offering to clean cars for $5 each.

After building and later selling this successful cleaning business as a teenager, he returned years later with some new ideas, a fresh approach and an unforgettable phone number. “It all started when I was trying to get my family home completely dust-free in anticipation of the arrival of our first baby. I bought an expensive vacuum cleaner and all the products, and no matter what I did, the dust would return within days. I tried everything. This “dust-drop” effect started to consume me”.

“A breakthrough moment happened when I was observing the way fine dust particles seem to float through the air through a shaft of sunlight, often escaping my vacuum cleaner entirely out of its exhaust system. These tiny dust particles seemed to defy the laws of physics and gravity and would resettle in the hours and days after the clean was over”.

This discovery led to much layman’s scientific analysis and the eventual development of a more innovative cleaning system. These methods remove up to 97% of the fine dust, pollutant and contaminant particles in indoor environments to a microscopic level of 30 microns (1/30th the circumference of a human hair). 100% dust-free is the dream that drives us at 1800 CLEANER, an Australian owned and family-run company that you can rely on to keep your home and office consistently cleaner, healthier and happier.
