Cleaning services

What do we do?

We provide a dedicated cleaning service. Supervisors are distributed across the site and are located in key buildings; each having a dedicated area of responsibility that will encompass other areas in addition to their base.

  • Our cleaning provision ranges from 6.30–21.00 with the majority of staff working part time, either two or three hours a day, Monday to Friday.
  • All campus buildings receive a daily toilet clean, check and replenish as necessary.
  • We undertake rubbish removal and bi-weekly vacuum cleaning of all carpeted areas.
  • Hard floor surfaces in all public and teaching areas are regularly swept and cleaned.
  • We wash down paint work on an annual basis, and pre-treat and shampoo areas of stained carpets.
