Learning Through Experience

Our experience in the education sector has given us a valuable insight into working to extremely tight deadlines.

Producing high quality, thorough deep cleans across hundreds of units while keeping to a strict schedule in line with the educational calendar is no mean feat. Not least when certain sites require considerable maintenance work prior to cleaning – or in some cases when the site is still under construction!

Flexibility is key in these instances, as is being able to react quickly and professionally, even to the toughest challenge. By being equipped to provide an extensive work force to tackle large-scale jobs – sometimes on a 24-hour schedule – we have been able to achieve what our customers had believed would be impossible, ultimately saving them thousands of pounds by preventing projects from overrunning.

This responsive approach isn’t restricted to our cleaning services, we are also able to supply security cover at short notice. We are aware that staff requirements can change at a moments notice, due to sickness, schedule changes or unforeseen circumstances. We are also equally aware that having security staff in place at all time is imperative to the smooth and safe running of many units.

Having the right team on hand – be that security, cleaning or more bespoke professionals – and knowing what is possible within a tight deadline enables us to apply the same high quality, quick-turnaround service to our customers outside the education sector if needed.
