Communal block cleaning for flats and apartments

If you live in a flat or apartment, it is likely that part of your service charge goes towards ensuring the communal areas are kept clean and tidy. We all want a great first impression to our friends and family when they visit, wherever we live.

It is a commonly reported problem that cleaning companies responsible for such roles will pop in for a very short amount of time, on different days and different times. This makes it impossible for residents to know if the agreed hours are being completed, and they are often left disappointed with the end result.

What should you look for when appointing a commercial cleaning company to take responsibility for cleaning the communal areas of your flat or apartment block?

  • Local– Are the company that you are selecting local? If they aren’t, the chance of regular site inspection checks by a manager is low.
  • Employed staff– Do the company employ their cleaners? Some companies use self-employed cleaners to save money on holiday and sickness pay, but this means they have no control over the cleaners to ensure they attend at fixed days and times, as self-employed workers have the right to decline work and work when they want.
  • BICS– Are the company a member of the British Institute of cleaning science, who lay out the expected standards in the cleaning world.
  • Specification – Have the company provided a clear schedule of works, ensuring everyone knows exactly what is expected.

At Green Fox, we specialise in communal block cleaning across the South coast, with satisfied clients in Portsmouth, Waterlooville, Chichester and many other towns and cities on the South Coast.

We provide a clear schedule of works, and our motivated, uniformed cleaning operatives will attend on fixed days and times, ensuring a consistent service. We also dedicate cleaners to clients, to ensure personal pride is taken on every visit. We are members of the British Institute of Cleaning Science, who set the standard in cleaning with ongoing training courses to ensure professional standards are met.
