Entrepreneurship is a career path that requires determination, resilience, and an innovative spirit. Dave and Bryony Mikita have exemplified these qualities and carved out their niche with Clear Out, an Australian-based cleaning business that is rapidly expanding. From modest beginnings as a small family operation to franchising their business across multiple territories, the Mikita’s story is a testament to the true heart and grit needed to be successful in entrepreneurship. 

From Household Chores to Household Name

In 2009, Bryony Mikita found herself facing the challenge of re-entering the workforce while also caring for her children. Faced with limited opportunities, she took matters into her own hands and launched Clear Out, offering house cleaning services specializing in rental exit cleans.

As demand grew, Dave Mikita, originally a tradesman working as a spray painter, stepped in to lend a hand. This allowed them to expand their offerings to carpet cleaning and pest control. What began as a one-woman operation soon evolved into a thriving business with a growing team. Together, they tackled grime and clutter, one home at a time, laying the foundation for what would become Clear Out’s enduring legacy.

The Clear-Out Difference

What sets Clear Out apart in the competitive world of cleaning services? According to Dave, it’s a combination of meticulous attention to detail, unwavering commitment to customer satisfaction, and a genuine passion for transforming spaces. “We don’t just clean homes; we create havens,” he says. When performing end-of-lease cleaning services, Clear Out prides itself on delivering consistently exceptional results, earning the trust and loyalty of clients throughout the region.

The Strategic Decision to Franchise

In 2018, after nearly a decade of building their business from the ground up, Dave and Bryony made the strategic decision to franchise Clear Out. Dave recalls, “We wanted to expand, and franchising seemed like the natural next step.” With a proven business model and a reputation for excellence, Clear Out became an attractive prospect for aspiring entrepreneurs seeking a turnkey solution in the cleaning industry.

As Clear Out grew, maintaining consistency became a top priority. Bryony emphasizes the importance of delivering the same level of service across all franchise locations. “We want customers to know that when they choose Clear Out, they can expect quality service every time,” she explains.

Looking ahead, Dave and Bryony envision a future where Clear Out continues to grow and thrive, reaching new heights of success while maintaining its commitment to quality and integrity. “Our goal is to become the go-to cleaning service for people vacating their properties across Australia,” says Dave and Bryony. With plans to expand into new territories and streamline operations, Clear Out is poised to solidify its position as a leader in the vacate cleaning industry.

As Clear Out embarks on its next chapter of growth and expansion, Dave and Bryony Mikita remain steadfast in their dedication to providing top-notch cleaning services and unparalleled customer experiences. With a winning combination of passion, professionalism, and perseverance, Clear Out is not just cleaning homes—it’s transforming lives, one sparkling surface at a time.
