We provide a minimum cleaning service on bank holidays, and resume normal daily cleaning schedules after the bank holiday breaks
We aim to provide our residents with a consistent safe, clean and tidy environment, at all times, Our cleaning staff wear uniforms and are responsible for the general cleanliness of the estate. They have schedules of work to complete every day such as sweeping and mopping corridors, litter picking and dealing with bulk and domestic refuse.
Whilst we aim to maintain cleaning standards within communal areas to their best possible condition, we ask residents and visitors to support us in this aim and abide by their tenancy agreement which states:
‘You and everyone who lives with you must help make sure that any communal areas are kept clean, tidy and clear of any obstruction’
