Professional service with a family touch

Hew’s Janitorial was founded by Lennie & Danny Hew in 1976 with a cleaning contract for a bank. Valma Hew, the spouse of Lennie Hew, managed it for years afterwards developing the maid service which has grown into a vital and respected part of the company’s offerings.

During the late 1950s Valma was a housekeeper at Pageant Beach Hotel. She later became a live-in helper for a wealthy family in Miami Florida. This experience along with her later banking experience, aided the company in its growth.

In the early years the children would help out with the company during their holidays. The boys would help out with the floor machines, scrubbing floors, while the girls helped out in the office.

Due to their growing reputation, expanding client base and increased level of business Hew’s ecame members of industry associations in the USA such as BSCAI (Building Services Contractors Association International) ISSA (International Sanitary Supply Association.

As befits a family business of note, the concentration on service and continuity of classy operations meant that the Lennie & Valma’s children, Chris & Joey Hew, joined full time over 20 years ago. Valma’s late sister Cicely Ebanks joined a few years later in 1995, managing the maidservice department and daughter Annie Bodden joined in 2006 as HR Manager.
