“Over the last 30 years, we’ve adapted to a changing industry, embraced the latest methods, training and technology and built relationships with our domestic and commercial clients that have stood the test of time. Our goal was never to just make a quick profit and run...we wanted to “excel."

That’s why 30 years later…we’re still delivering incredible customer satisfaction, reliably and with integrity…and we still excel at what we do”

When Lee Akers established Excel Cleaning Contractors nearly 30 years ago, his goal was to build a business whose reputation for excellence and highest standards of customer service would speak for itself. In an industry tarnished by unreliability, poor safety standards and unethical business practices, he knew that the key to longevity lay in being different. Fast forward to today, this work ethic has seen Excel expand to a company offering an extensive list of services with a growing portfolio of delighted clients across Yorkshire and the north of England. We're proud to have provided window and exterior building cleaning and maintenance solutions for some of the most iconic buildings in Leeds, York, Manchester and beyond, while maintaining and growing our domestic client base in Harrogate and North Yorkshire.

While we have evolved dramatically to adapt to the challenges of a changing industry, we have maintained our focus on offering incredible, dedicated customer service and standards of work which are second to none. We have invested in the latest equipment and training to ensure that we utilise the safest, most efficient and environmentally-friendly methods to achieve the best end result possible. For both domestic and commercial clients we can offer a full 360-degree service package to ensure that your home or business premises looks amazing and functions perfectly. "Excel - it's who we are...and what we do."
