Michael was recommended to me by friends (the best form of advertising) and I’m very glad they did. Michael does an exceptionally good job of cleaning our windows inside and out, he’s efficient and great value for money. Not only that, he also turns up when he says he will and promptly responds to text requests for appointments - characteristics sadly not shared by all tradespeople.

1: What were your beginnings in the window cleaning trade?

Recording session. QUT. 2008.

“2003 I finished uni studies and moved to Sydney to play in bands. My day job at that time was working for a window cleaning company. We were working on a variety of properties, everything from car yards to luxurious domestic homes on Sydney Harbour. I stayed in this job until late 2006 and in that time developed my skills working with some of the city’s best. I have great memories of that time.”

2: What were you doing before Platinum Window Cleaning?

“After travelling the world for a while, I came back to complete my teaching degree in Brisbane. I then pursued a career as a high school music teacher for a number of years.”

3: How did Platinum Window Cleaning start?

“After discovering entrepreneurship and considering it as a new career option I decided to leave teaching and began trying a number of online business ventures but with little success. Leaving my job too early was a mistake and things started to get tough, I was running out of funds and needed something to work quickly. I began offering a regular window cleaning service to local shops, it was working and my new clients were loving it so I went for it.

Within 12 months I pretty much had a full schedule with over 200 shops on my list who I approached directly plus a growing number of larger commercial and domestic properties, these clients were all finding me through word of mouth. In January 2017 after much research and thought I made the big decision to continue in this industry and expand my small solo operation into a full branded company and am now in the process of building a team.”
