A thorough Floor Cleaning Machine Service

At Clemas & Co Ltd our experienced engineers provide a thorough and comprehensive service of all your cleaning machines. We always recommend preventative maintenance through regular servicing, this helps reduce costs by extending the life of your machine, and machine down time.

Our team of engineers can attend your site if your cleaning machine unfortunately breaks down or is in need of repair. We can also fully refurbish your cleaning machines and you can hire a machine while yours is being repaired.

There maybe times when a quick look through our trouble shooting guide below  may help you resolve your problem without an engineer. We would only recommend attempting these if you are fully competent and have carried out the necessary risk assessments.
