Our company history

We have 20 years of high quality window cleaning services experience


Clearview was established in 1989 by Keith Coburn (currently the Managing Director) in the East End of London. It started out as a very small domestic window cleaning round with many of the clients being small terraced houses. The work was carried out in the local area to his home on a Sunday morning, this was because at 15 years old Keith was attending school!

As the business started to expand Keith designed leaflets with the help of school resources, which he distributed in his spare time. Before long a Sunday morning window cleaning round became a full time job.

Keith decided to leave school and concentrate 100% on building up the business and it was not long before he started to employ staff and found himself in the position of being a teenage boss!

Because of his sheer determination and drive his reputation grew and by 1993 he started to break into the commercial sector resulting in cleaning offices and entered a whole new area of business.

In the year 2000 Clearview invested heavily in obtaining the very latest in water purification pole cleaning systems (Reach and Wash). They were the first company in London to own this new concept in the window cleaning industry which was a very exciting period in the history of the company.

In 2002, Clearview were very proud to be recognised by the Health and Safety Executive and awarded with the prestigious 'Safe Contractor' accreditation award.

In 2006, Clearview became Clearview Window Cleaning Services Limited with Keith Coburn (founder) becoming the managing Director.

in 2007, Clearview appointed an IRATA abseiling team and obtained an IPAF licence for full use of cherry pickers, lifts and booms. Clearview were and still are proud to offer every service relating to window cleaning and access.

In 2011, Clearview was awarded with the 'investors in People Award'

With branches and divisions (teams)in London, Kent, Hertfordshire and throughout the southeast the company continues to expand due largely to the high standards it sets. Clearview prides itself on offering a well respected, reliable and high quality service.
