Ideal was founded in 1946 8 years before Queen Elizabeth’s coronation by George Newell as a chimney sweeping company the first to utilise vacuums for such operations. The company prospered and developed the Brush-Vac system into the “Movac” dry waste extraction system.
We remain a family-owned business today, with the fourth generation on board. We operate and conduct our business in an ethical and transparent way and focus on the support and development of our staff.
Ideal’s approach is to ensure we manage the required services for and on behalf of our clients, providing value for money and improved services.
