Croydon-based Cleankill completed the purchase of Good Riddance Pest Control on 30th November 2018.

Founded in 2002 by Howard Taffs, Good Riddance Pest Control provides commercial and domestic pest control services in and around Bristol, Bath and Weston-Super-Mare.

Mr Taffs approached Cleankill when he decided to retire. Commenting on the decision, he said:

“Within the industry, Cleankill is well-known as a company that looks after its staff and its customers. Like Good Riddance Pest Control, they believe in continuous staff development as a way to constantly improve and offer better customer service. They are the only English pest control company to have achieved the Investors in People Gold Standard and they regularly win awards for Best Employer, Best Customer Service and Best Staff Development and Training. When I wanted to find a company that would look after my customers and staff, Cleankill was the obvious choice.”

Cleankill was founded in 1995 and provides professional pest control services to customers in London and the South-east. Operating from headquarters in Croydon, Greater London, with a second office in Seaford, East Sussex, Cleankill specialises in effective, efficient pest control for private clients and commercial businesses of all sizes.

Staff development is an important aspect of the Cleankill ethos. It employs some of the most highly-trained technicians in the industry and, in addition to traditional pest control methods, Cleankill uses innovative and environmentally friendly pest control procedures to ensure properties remain pest free. All pest control work is digitally recorded, with clients receiving instant written reports with recommendations, actions taken and advice. In addition, contract customers receive free call-outs when problems occur between regular inspection visits.

Commenting on the acquisition, Cleankill’s Managing Director Paul Bates said: “We were delighted when Howard contacted us. The last few years have seen exceptional growth for Cleankill and this has driven our expansion along the M4 corridor. The call from Howard came at just the right time. We were highly impressed by the professionalism of Howard and his team and knew instantly this was a company we could work with.

“It was clear we shared a lot of the same philosophies when it came to customer service and attitudes to staff, the community and the environment. We look forward to continuing to provide our new clients in and around Bristol with the same exceptional service they are used to, only now as part of the Cleankill family.”

Good Riddance Pest Control will operate as a subsidiary of Cleankill (Environmental Services) Ltd.
