History of Hendersons

Here at Hendersons we have a long history in the window cleaning business; not only have Sandra and Len been working together as a husband and wife team since 2005, Len actually started his window cleaning journey over 45 years ago! Len, born in the UK, started cleaning windows with his brother in 1972, when he was just 16. Back then his brother had a window cleaning business in North West London using just shamies, scrims and buckets of water. They also used a pointer ladder, not a pole in sight. They are not available to buy here in Australia so Len makes his own! Len moved to Australia in 1975 and started working as a photographic technician, a big change in direction from cleaning. As technology changed Len found work as a photographic technician was harder to come by, which is when he made the change back to the window cleaning business in 1999. He remembers thinking that he had really wanted to work outside again and as he already had experience in the industry the move back to window cleaning seemed like the best next step. After buying and building up a franchise, Len & Sandra decided to go out on their own and in 2010, Hendersons Window Cleaning was born. Since then their son, Marc, has entered the business and has helped introduce some new technology and techniques, meaning Henderson & Co cleaning has a unique mix of many years of experience and expertise combined with the newest and most efficient technology. Many customers also love the fact that it is a family business with a very personal approach.
