Who We Are
Rothwell’s Cleaning Services Ltd provides thorough, professional and effective cleaning of Carpets, Upholstery, Rugs and Stone & Tile flooring both indoors and outdoors.
Hi and welcome to our website. We’re Max and Oliver Campbell, a father and son team and between us we own & run Rothwell’s Cleaning Services Ltd.
A Bit Of Our History
Rothwell’s was started by Max Campbell in 1993 with the aim to provide the best quality of cleaning coupled with honest, friendly customer service, this is still core to all that Rothwell’s does to this day.
The first years of Rothwell’s were taken up with Max meeting carpet cleaners and equipment manufacturers as well as going on many courses to find the best methods of cleaning. Over the next 16 years Max built up a vast wealth of experience and knowledge in the cleaning industry, along with a loyal customer base. Over that time several members of our family including Oliver all joined Max for periods in between study and other jobs but it remained a small firm mainly with Max working by himself.
In 2010, after a year of running his own cleaning business, Oliver joined Max and they became business partners. Over the years since, Rothwell’s has grown to become one of East Anglia’s largest specialist cleaning businesses. We quickly invested in new van mounted cleaning units to ensure we could continue to provide the very best cleaning results for carpet and soft furnishings. We were also keen to add more services so took our experience with carpets and other fabrics to begin oriental rug cleaning and in 2014 opened our rug cleaning studio. From 2009 we spent many years learning about stone floors and now provide a wide range of services to restore stone floors both inside and out.
The team has grown to include several technicians, all of which have been highly trained by Max and Oliver, completing the Rothwell’s in-house, extensive, mentor training programme as well as internationally recognised courses. This larger team now means Rothwell’s has more resources and skills to use when completing every job. And with Max and Oliver still very hands on Rothwell’s keeps its caring, family firm feel and attitudes throughout the company. We are proud of the team we have built and the level of service we offer to all our customers.
We do hope we can find a way to help you with your cleaning needs and we are sure if you choose to use our company you will be very happy with our work.

I will be using then again, for sure.”Mrs Fuentes
