Located on Bosworth Road in Bairnsdale, Slates services far and wide, from Bairnsdale to Orbost, through to Omeo, Heyfield, Sale, Paynesville, Metung and even Mallacoota. When the company first emerged in 1995, it was a one-person show. Utilising hard work, good values and perseverance, the business now has 30 staff members who are all passionate about helping the commu- nity with whatever cleaning needs they require. Originally, Glenis received a job coordinating all of the cleaning for Vegco, but had to operate as her own company. With this, Slates Cleaning and Handy Services was born. Starting out mostly cleaning homes and similar venues the business eventually moved to commercial buildings. “We love making a difference for people and helping themwith whatever they need,” Glenis said. “It not only makes me happy, it makes my staff happy as well when they see a satisfied customer.” The motto “We do anything that you don’t want to do yourself!” de- scribes how professional Slates Cleaning is and howmuch pride they take in their work. Slates staff also pride themselves on making sure customers are fully satisfied with the work that has been done in their home or business. Slates Cleaning and Handy Services also offers 24-hour emergency serv- ice, in case customers need them in an instant. This is just part of their dedication to provide the very best customer service in their field. Today, the well-respected small business can take on just about any job thrown their way. The number of ways in which Slates can help with cleaning needs is seemingly endless; with their abilities ranging from general cleaning to item-specific jobs or specialty services like environmentally friendly cleaning or trauma scene clean up. Slates’ company goal is to provide customers with a first class, friendly, professional service and a long-lasting relationship for years to come. “We do everything we can to keep our customers happy and we don’t make any excuses,” Glenis said. While the 25 years have gone by quickly for Glenis, she says she wouldn’t be where she is today without the help of the Bairnsdale community. “We really couldn’t have done it without you,” she said. “It’s been exhausting, but I love it. I wouldn’t still be doing it if I didn’t.” For reliable, squeaky-clean service, see Slates. Glenis Slater’s fleet of Slates Cleaning and Handy Services vehicles are always busy buzzing around town.
