Cleaning teams in England do not need to be licenced

In a nutshell, no. Cleaning teams in England have no legal licensing process.

However, the standard of training, level of knowledge and level of service will vary considerably. There are some basics that a cleaning company must have to be able to operate legally, which will protect you as the client also.

As a minimum, any cleaning company should have:

  • Public liability insurance
  • COSHH (control of substances hazardous to health) information on sites
  • Risk assessments and method statements held on sites

At Green Fox Cleaning, we go far beyond this. Full training by our in-house British Institute of Cleaning Science team ( around the correct processes of cleaning, safe handling of chemicals and risk assessment are just the start.
