Our Approach

The Jane Jefferson Way


We are privately owned and run by Jennifer O’Donnell, the granddaughter of Jane Jefferson, the wonderful lady behind the name of our brand.

In 1927, Jane went into service, as a housemaid at Lytham Hall, Lytham St.Annes, Blackpool. During her years in service, she was known for her exceptionally high standards, her integrity and her belief in worker rights.

Jane had a huge influence on Jennifer, teaching her valuable skills in cleaning and the importance of ethical employment.

She sowed the seed for Jennifer to create a company that would mirror her impeccable standards and genuinely value their staff.

We’ve always admired Jane Jefferson’s approach to life and that’s why she continues to inspire the business we operate today.

We’re a business who excels at cleaning and we do so with a dedicated, supported and happy team.
