The DCA is supported by it’s members – people who provide cleaning services.

No matter how long you’ve been trading, or how many staff or clients you have, if you are the owner of a UK cleaning company, providing domestic cleaning as part or all of the services you offer, you can apply for membership.

As a member of the Domestic Cleaning Alliance, your company name will be listed on our website so that your customers can see that yours is a legitimate, tax-paying, insured organisation.

There is currently no legal obligation for a domestic cleaning company operating in the UK to have any sort of insurance – but at the DCA we insist that all members have taken out insurance before they can join us. Despite this, we regularly receive many applications from uninsured cleaning service providers.

How it works:

You can apply for membership online by clicking here – you can choose from two tiers of DCA membership, designed to suit the budget and the needs of any cleaning service provider:
