About Us

Professional Cleaning and Maintenance Co Ltd has been operating since 1986.

Nick and Jenny Barlow are owners and active directors of the Company.

Nick first started working for the business as a cleaner in 1989, and progressed within the Company, before he and wife Jenny purchased the business in 2005.

Nick and Jenny have a passion to provide quality cleaning services at competitive prices, and are ably assisted by a team of dedicated senior people who have a long association working in the business and also have extensive experience in the wider commercial cleaning environment.

Although we are now smaller than our pre quake company we still have the experience and knowledge to deliver the quality our clients have become accustomed to.

We believe we have the combined experience, expertise, people and equipment to satisfy your cleaning and maintenance needs, and have developed a reputation of availability and accountability of which we are extremely proud.



"We currently live in Australia and love coming to Christchurch with friends and relations as often as we can.

We are pleased to use the services of PCM to ensure that our apartment in central Christchurch is always clean and tidy for when we arrive.

It is always comforting to know that when we leave the apartment it is cleaned and that all laundry such as towels and sheets will be done and the beds made for when we or other friends next come to the apartment.

All it takes is a phone call or email and we know that all our domestic needs at the apartment will be attended to promptly and efficiently by PCM."

Pace Project Management have been working with PCM for 10 years, with PCM generally doing the final clean of our office fit-outs.

Greg has been very pro-active and if there are items to be completed outside of his contract, he will always ring and ask if we want them done.

A number of the high rise buildings in town in which we complete a lot of fit-outs, PCM are the general cleaners, and they know the buildings well, providing an excellent service to the right budget.

I would have no problem in Pace Project Management recommending PCM to complete commercial cleaning to others.

During my working career as a Centre Manager and Property Manager for both Commercial and Retail outlets in Christchurch I have had the opportunity to engage Professional Cleaning & Maintenance Company as cleaning contractors for several of the Buildings which I manage.

I have found the integrity of the management and staff of the Company along with their cleaning skills to be of a very high standard. Our clients also speak very highly of the Professional Cleaning & Maintenance Company.

I would have no hesitation in recommending PCM for any contract they may apply for in future.

I write to recommend Professional Cleaning and Maintenance Co Ltd.

This Company has provided me with excellent service for over a decade.

They are dedicated to their work and punctual with requests for attention to extra services outside their normal duties.

They are prompt, courteous, reliable in all respects and pleasant to deal with.
