Company Background

Superior Cleaners

Superior Disaster Services Ltd. began as Superior Cleaners of Peterborough in 1959 and was founded by Len & Wanda Martin. The company was originally located on Stewart Street and specialized in residential cleaning and carpet cleaning. The Martins retired in 1981, when their son, Andrew Martin, and Robert Webb purchased the company. As might be expected, Andrew grew up in the business, working there after school. Bob also started working with the company during his teen years and collectively, these partners represent more than 60 years’ experience.
