Trust and Dust is Sarah and Holly, and our awesome team of cleaners, which tends to changes from season to season, although we have got a few cleaners who are on their 4th season with us now!
Our cleaners really are everything and make the company what it is.
Sarah founded the company back in 2009. A ski season after uni lead to another ski season, then a summer season, then the decision to move her life to Morzine! It’s now been 10 years…
“I never thought I’d end up cleaning chalets for a living, but in hindsight, from the moment I arrived in Morzine, I was cleaning and yes, I am one of those annoying people who can’t do anything until the house is tidy and has been known to get the vacuum cleaner out at midnight! I started off working as a chalet girl scrubbing loos, followed by a really fun season working for a similar company to Trust and Dust. It was much more my cup of tea because I had a lot more independence and the hours were more flexible. My boss at the time had just had a baby, so she suggested that I take on some of her properties to look after for the following winter season, and Trust and Dust was born!”
What followed was an intense season of snowboarding where possible, cleaning chalets all the time and getting to grips with running a business in the evening! Slowly over the last 8 years T&D has gone from strength to strength and expanded substantially, with more properties and staff every year. We work really hard to maintain our brilliant reputation and to ensure our standards are always very high. We feel that we go above and beyond what people expect and hope that comes across to our clients.
Then along came Holly…
Holly joined first as a cleaner for Trust and Dust in 2014 and, after expressing an interest in getting involved in the business, she became a partner in 2015. For Sarah it was a huge relief to have someone else to help with the admin side of the business, the workload of which had grown immensely in the first 5 years. It was also helpful to have someone to bounce ideas off and have a good old moan with too!
“I first came to Morzine on holidays with my family, and ended up taking a year off and stayed for a winter season back in 2011 after hating my job back at home in the UK…
I did the whole seasonnaire thing and after working for Trust and Dust cleaning chalets for a while, I then teamed up alongside Sarah to manage the company and to help push it further! It’s safe to say I haven’t looked back since then!
I get to work with one of my best friends, and we get to work with really great, hard-working, fun people too. It’s all worth it because on our days off we go snowboarding in the winter, or paddle boarding in the summer!”
Holly studied photography at Uni, so she takes photos of some of our properties for our website too! She is also in charge of T&D social media, so head to Instagram and Facebook to see her funny and topical photos from around and about Morzine.
