Lance Foord started Nu-Clean Carpet and Upholstery Cleaning Business in 1976.
He operated from a premises in Devizes Road.
Nu-Clean Carpet Cleaning's excellent quality of work and high standards
of service soon made Nu-Clean Carpet Cleaning a household cleaning name in Salisbury.
Together, with the carpet and upholstery cleaning,
Nu-Clean Carpet Cleaning carried out a 24-hour emergency fire
and flood damage restoration service,
giving priority to burst pipes, particularly during Christmas and New Year festivities.
In 1989 Lance's son Ashley joined the company and his enthusiasm and hard work helped the continuity of the good name of Nu-Clean Carpet Cleaning
In 1995 Ashley left Lance's business and decided to move into Dry Cleaning.
In 1996, Ashley bought premises in Fisherton Street and opened Nu-Clean Dry Cleaners.
Since moving into dry cleaning, Nu-Clean Dry Cleaners has gained large cleaning contracts from companies such as Salisbury District Hospital, the Army, Salisbury District Council and Marlborough College which caters for members of the Royal Family.
Over the years Nu-Clean has also carried out dry cleaning for many well known dress makers, clothes designers, (even traveling to London for well known interior designers), makeup artists, retail outlets, national celebrities and as well as many local hotels and businesses.
