Spotless Cleaning Services
Spotless Cleaning Services is a complete redesign and build from the business logo using wireframe layout, fonts and color palettes. It was created using a design base theme in WordPress which I have now used for several websites because it provides an excellent scaffolding for building on.
Twitter Bootstrap is also incorporated into the design so that the site is accessible and displays properly across multiple devices and screen sizes.
Spotless are a professional residential and commercial cleaning service based in Kilkenny City, Ireland. They operate throughout the south east region of the country.
They provide domestic and commercial carpet, Upholstery, Tile & Grout, Floor and Leather cleaning. They also specialize in canopy cleaning and duct cleaning for commercial kitchen cleaning. Spotless adhere's to industry best standards for kitchen ducts & canopies of TR19 HVAC Standard Compliance.
Spotless provides personal, professional home and business cleaning services with assured dependability at affordable prices. Clients range from major schools, security groups, Health departments, retail outlets, manufacturing and services firms. Customer satisfaction is their top priority and they pride themselves on being proactive and reactive to customer’s needs.
The brief was to redesign and develop the website for Spotless to convey the professional cleaning services available. The main landing page (homepage) needed call to action buttons for quotes and for more detailed information on the services they provide. Primarily it was important to have commercial kitchen cleaning (canopy & duct cleaning) and carpet cleaning on the front page and also tab based overview of other services available.
It was also very important that the website was responsive working across multiple devices and also a way for customers to quickly and easily contact the business by mobile or email for pricing or quotes.

A wire-frame was designed for layout and look and given to the client, which then the design was implemented programmatically with php, html and css. Spotless main landing page (homepage) needed call to action buttons for quotes and for more detailed information on the services they provide. Primarily it was important to have commercial kitchen cleaning (canopy & duct cleaning) and carpet cleaning on the front page and also tab based overview of other services available. It was also very important that the website was responsive working across multiple devices and also a way for customers to quickly and easily contact the business by mobile or email for pricing or quotes.
Keeping this in mind the header was developed with the logo on the left hand side and contact details on the right side. Underneath the main menu a well section was created with content on about Spotless with call to action buttons on both sides with "Call us now to arrange a call out or to enquire about cleaning prices" and directly underneath that again two block green areas with clickable telephone and email for customers to respond for services available and pricing.
Three individual service blocks where designed with more information available on click. Two full size blocks where created for commercial kitchen and carpet cleaning, a green block for canopy and duct cleaning and underneath a white block for carpets both with call to action buttons. Below these a tabbed section with other services available again all with call to action buttons.
Content for canopy & duct cleaning was created and organised into sections in an individual page with HVCA TR19 standard and benefits of industry cleaning and regulations. An individual page with well written content on commercial kitchen would allow search engines to find spotless canopy & duct cleaning service . The site has full SEO included, starting from the keywords in the content organised from top down, SEO images, alt titles on images, headings, SEO titles, metadescription and URL matches.
