Sorry for the delay here, if it's still of interest the UK market for contract cleaning services in 2001 was estimated to be 4.87 billion and is broken down into 'Standard Cleaning' - 2.97bn, 'Specialised Cleaning' - 1.557bn and 'Other activities' - .342bn

Private sector cleaning companies account for 65% of this market with the remaining 35% being dealt with by Public Sector DSO's.
