Welcome to the DCA
We are a UK trade association working exclusively for the domestic cleaning industry.
We’re here to support both the service provider and the client, as well as offering training for those currently involved in our industry, or anyone wishing to join it. Formed in March 2014, the Domestic Cleaning Alliance gained immediate popularity amongst cleaning businesses countrywide.
On the 9th March 2016 the DCA was officially launched by Simon Hollingbery, (then) chairman of the British Cleaning Council.
So what makes the Domestic Cleaning Alliance as successful as it is? Well, everything about the DCA is steeped in first-hand experience. Each and every member of the Panel is the owner of a cleaning business and knows the highs & the lows of doing so. None of us are afraid to get our hands dirty – literally. Whatever the cleaning task, so long as it falls into the category of “housework”, you can be sure we’ve proudly done it ourselves, many times.
Together we have in excess of 70 years experience of running cleaning businesses.
In a time of recession and cut-backs, the UK domestic cleaning industry has remained buoyant countrywide. We know that domestic cleaning businesses are usually overwhelmed with work and are mostly only restricted the challenge of finding more and more high-quality staff. We know where cleaning businesses are needing our help and support. We are working to channel our energy and resources into these areas accordingly.
Despite the number of people currently out of work across the UK, our industry continues to struggle to meet the demand for domestic workers. As well as supporting our members with their staff and staffing issues, one of the main aims of the DCA is to make everyone aware of our industry and highlight the numerous career opportunities available.
