How do you manage your staff?

Each client has a dedicated Client Account Manager who manages their cleaning team. From the very beginning, we implement an assessment and training period for each member of staff. The Account Manager makes regular inspections on site, as well as ad hoc visits, to ensure that high cleaning standards are being maintained. The Account Manager will feed back any findings to their client at their regular monthly meeting. In addition, each client is asked to complete a monthly satisfaction sheet so that we can monitor and measure how we are performing and whether any improvements need to be made. Similarly, if you’re extremely satisfied, we will let our staff know!

Do you carry out regular training with your staff?

Yes we do! Staff training is an important element of our company. Firstly, as part of our recruitment process we, where ever possible meet with cleaners in their homes prior to commencing their employment. This helps to establish their own cleaning standards. From day one of a contract the cleaning team are taken through our specialised training programme. This will include training on all products, time management at work, machinery and any specific site requirements. After 12 weeks all staff members must take part in our retraining programme to ensure standards are being maintained. It goes without saying that all of our cleaning staff have training in the essential aspects of COSHH Health and Safety Regulations. If you have further queries then do not hesitate to contact us on 0203 405 8442 or email and a member of the team will be very happy to help you.

Transfer of Employment

The Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations 1981, or TUPE law, is in place to protect employees if the service provider changes at their usual workplace. Its effect is to move employees and any benefits associated with them from their old employer to the new contractor. Under UK legislation all companies must comply with a TUPE transfer situation and all cleaners must, by law, have the opportunity to transfer their employment. This will be the case with any new service provider you appoint. This can be a concern for some people but rest assured this is a process we have gone through many, many times! If you have further queries then do not hesitate to contact us on 0203 405 8442 or email and a member of the team will walk you through how it works or answer any questions you have.

Why should we appoint you?

Only you know the answer to that question, however, we can assure you that we strive for the very best for our clients from the service you receive from your appointed Client Account Manager to the on-the-ground service from our highly trained cleaning staff. From the outset we aim to offer excellent value for money by carrying out a thorough, honest and efficient estimation for your cleaning requirements and we then have an ongoing monitoring process to ensure standards remain to your satisfaction. We offer a range of cleaning services for a wide variety of industries including the provision of specialist services such as professional floor maintenance and window cleaning, so that all your cleaning needs can be achieved through one point of contact.

Do you offer bespoke office cleaning plans?
