A man who left school at 16 now earns £3,000 a week thanks to his obsession with cleanliness after opening a successful business.

Liam Maguire, 30, launched Urban Valet three years ago and can now earn up to £2,800 per job for cleaning, polishing and waxing a car, Manchester Evening News reports.

This year he is working with some of the most luxurious cars in the business, including a McLaren 720S for a client in Manchester.

Mr. Maguire said the service reflected personal standards of cleanliness but is also about "' doing it safely to ensure no excess contact or damage is caused to the car, while at the same time using high-grade products to ensure the best finish."
He said: "Everyday car washes can cause scratches and damage.
"I’m the guy you call to fix what they’ve caused and also promise you serious satisfaction."
When he left school at 16, Liam started working as a "rag hand" for a company in St Helens. By the age of 19, he became valeting bay manager and was in charge of people twice his age with double the years' inexperience, he said.

"I was unfortunately made redundant", Liam added.

"My boss kindly helped me with a van and then became Urban Valets.
"I still to this day have a great relationship with my old boss and I also maintain his cars."
Working with some of the most luxurious cars in the business, the 30-year-old is now doubling his turnover year-on-year. 
Liam said: "My services range from £40 up to thousands.
"My highest paid job was £2,800 and it took me a week solid.
"That was on a McLaren 720S in Manchester for a client who deals in Bitcoin and banking. 
"As for my high profile clients, I never aimed for such football players as my business aim is to impress people who know about cars.
"I mean that in a respect in which to prove I’m the best at my job."
His first high profile client was the Red Bull drift masters racers, which then caught the attention of serious-level insurance brokers and multi-business owners who own supercars such as McLarens, Lamborghinis and Ferraris. 
He then worked on the most expensive supercar that's in the UK currently, a McLaren Senna, whose upgrades cost about £1.2million.
Liam said this was his "greatest achievement".
