We’re speaking to lots of neighbours on lots of streets, so we’ve already answered lots of questions. See our frequently asked questions page for a quick answer.
It wasn’t a surprise to anyone that in 1989 my brother and I set up our own business. Two young lads with a £200 Rover on finance. But, by then, things had changed. People had gone to the moon. The Berlin Wall had come down. Everything seemed bigger. Maybe it was because we’d grown up but somehow things seemed less local.
In 1919 my great-grandfather started his window cleaning business in Otley. My grand-father was a window cleaner. So was my father. As my brother and I grew up we were part of a window cleaning family. We knew the people on our dad’s round and they knew us.
By 2019 the new business, Nationwide Window Cleaning, had 340 customers and brought in £20 million a year. We had big contracts, cleaning windows of big buildings for big companies. It felt big.
The small brotherly business grew like everything else. By 2006 the Tasker brothers’ rounds became Tasker UK Ltd with 110 people working for us. We sold the business but I couldn’t walk away from window cleaning. This time I started again, from scratch, without employees or customers to see if I could do it on my own.
I was powerfully reminded of the connection my family had with their communities. I was reminded of the pride my father, grandfather, great-grandfather found in making a whole street shine. I knew it was time for a change.
Then, in 2020, the whole world seemed to pause. People stopped looking global. Trapped inside their house, people focussed on their neighbours. For the first time in decades, people truly noticed the streets they lived on. For the first time in decades, I noticed the street I lived on.
And so, in 2021, YourLocal was born. A modern approach to a timeless issue. YourLocal connects people with a local window cleaner. With a few simple steps people can soon have gleaming windows. But, we don’t stop there.
We’ve seen that when people take pride in their windows, that grows. People take pride in their streets and feel better connected with their own little neighbourhood. We’re here to support that feeling.
