Learning Through Experience

Our experience in the education sector has given us a valuable insight into managing and working to extremely tight deadlines, particularly when dealing with halls of residence cleaning.

Our university cleaning services produce high quality, thorough deep cleans across hundreds of units whilst keeping to a strict schedule, all in line with the educational calendar. This no mean feat! Especially as certain sites require considerable maintenance work prior to cleaning – or in some cases when the site may still be under construction! University halls cleaning is always carried out in a professional manner, making sure we’ve thought of just about everything.

Flexibility is key in these instances, as is being able to react quickly and professionally, even to the toughest challenge. We are always equipped to provide an extensive work force to tackle large-scale jobs – sometimes on a 24-hour schedule – and therefore 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 maintenance and security cover at short notice. We are aware that staff requirements can change at a moment’s 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 very tight deadline enables us to apply the same high quality, quick-turnaround service to our customers outside the education sector if needed.
