Thorough Clean has been a family owned and operated business in Tauranga since 1989. In 2005, Mark Brinkman and Kathy Palmer, partners with two young boys, took over the reigns after being fully trained to a very high standard by the previous owner for 2 months. Family is a big part of their lives, and they also own a dog – so they know about stains originating from animals and children! Call us for a chat about your carpet cleaning or stain treatment
needs - we will understand exactly where you are coming from!
A little bit about us
Mark used to work for Harvey Norman in their furniture department, so he had plenty of experience working with upholstery before taking over Thorough Clean! His partner Kathy Palmer currently does the office and administration work for the business, including invoices, bookings, etc. She is also a fully qualified primary teacher, and has recently returned to teacher aide part time work at local primary school.
Locally owned and operated
We are proud to run a non-franchise stain treatment and cleaning service, keeping it local in the Tauranga area. Mark has been a resident of Tauranga on and off for 30 years, and Kathy has lived here for the past 12 years. We both love the Matua community, and are very settled in our life here.
Cleaning and pest control expertise
Mark is a registered technician for pest control, and annually attends seminars to get ‘up to speed’ with safety and national regulations involving pest control. He has also attended courses in Auckland specifically designed for carpet and upholstery cleaning as well as stain treatment in New Zealand. Although we prefer to work within the normal hours of work, 7 days a week, we are flexible and happy to oblige after hours work at no extra charge.
