Who We Are

Michael Shaw

The company was started by Michael Shaw; a graduate in Economics from Leeds University who had a long career in the UK hospitality industry with Whitbread’s and Allied Breweries before deciding to have an overseas adventure; migrating to Australia with his wife, Sharon, in 1990.

Michael worked for Foster’s Brewing Group as State Manager of Western Australia, whilst Sharon specialized in opening restaurants – a career direction that led her to Singapore for a while.

In 1995 they branched out on their own, and with some local business partners purchased and renovated a grand old pub/hotel in Fremantle.

Getting frustrated with finding good quality cleaners Michael and Sharon set up a cleaning company ‘on the side’ which cleaned their own pub and concentrated on other hospitality venues within the Perth and Fremantle area.

In you’ve ever worked in hospitality you’ll know that cleaning is a key performance indicator. If your kitchens, hotel rooms, toilets, restaurants, function rooms and bars are not spotless, you’re in trouble.

In 2005, after a 15-year adventure down under, and with a young son now in tow, Michael, Sharon and Oliver returned to the UK and set up a commercial cleaning business.

This has evolved into PREMiClean, still a family-run business especially with Oliver joining the management team straight from completing his ‘A’ levels at Manchester Grammar School.

Michael, Sharon (and now Oliver) are still very hands-on, involved in all aspects of the business on a day-to-day basis. Coupled with a growing army of expert cleaners and supervisors we make a very formidable and capable team.

We’re big enough to handle most things and small enough to give you a personalised, bespoke service; PREMiClean Commercial Cleaning Services.
