Dirtbusters was established in 1986 by Gavin Finch.
19-year-old Gavin cleaned ovens & carpets in his local area. Business was successful but over the years, Gavin became fed up with using caustic cleaning chemicals.
This sparked a vision for Dirtbusters, and so a new journey began…
Using years of experience & expertise, Gavin worked alongside a chemist to develop Dirtbusters' first line of non-caustic cleaning products for professionals in the industry.
After organic growth Dirtbusters expanded into the domestic market in 2010.
Today, Dirtbusters manufactures cleaning products for the home, for your lifestyle and for professional cleaners. We constantly work alongside our chemists to provide professional standard products whilst being as environmentally aware as possible.
As the brand has expanded, Gavin has involved his family members – two daughters run the head office, his dad helps pack in the warehouse, and eldest son, a freelance illustrator, designs our product labels.The family dog, Otis, is one of the most hardworking team members. He comes into the office every day!
It is a core value to the Dirtbusters team to make all those involved with the business, be that employee or customer, to feel part of our Dirtbusters family.
We know how important your passions are. They are to us too. That’s why we wanted to provide lifestyle cleaning products for those moments you get to spend on your passions in your every day lives.Our lifestyle products have been developed through personal interests of the Dirtbusters family. Each of us have our own hobbies and passions.
We test every one of our products to make sure they are effective and easy to use for your lifestyle.
One of our goals is to have as little impact on the environment as we can.
Not only do we aim to make our cleaning solutions safe, non-toxic and as friendly as possible to the earth, we also find ways to give back to the environment in our daily routine.
We recently moved location to a self-sufficient farm in the countryside. It’s completely solar powered and we even have our own veg patch! Head over to our blog post to find out about these recent changes, including our kitchen made from recycled PET bottles.
We organise regular beach cleans in our local area and we support the charity Surfers Against Sewage - we’re a proud member of their SAS 250 club.
