On February 16th, 2014, Apollo Wales was born. Unknown at the time but the £20 second hand vacuum cleaner bought from Gumtree would become the start of this fast paced, growing Company employing more now than ever before.
On that evening, Jak and Chris had made the decision to set up a cleaning business following advice from their former employer. Despite their sister in law being in labour at the time, Chris searched to find the stock and equipment needed to start a cleaning company on as little as possible but still able to provide a great service.
Once he’d sourced it, Chris headed out to pick up a second hand Vax vacuum cleaner he’d found on Gumtree and along with a few other items picked up in B&Q along the way, a cleaning company was begun.
From that one vacuum cleaner bought on a cold February evening, little did they know or expect that another 120 would be added to their inventory together with much more equipment, tools and stock.
Apollo Wales was given its name a few months later after wrestling with logos and colour schemes, however the business began firmly on that day specialising in end of tenancy Cleaning for students.
