The benefits of outsourcing your cleaning requirements

Over six years ago a decision to outsource our cleaning requirement was taken. Easy Clean was selected based on the response and quality of one piece of work to clean the school after the installation of a new heating system left all classrooms and equipment covered in brick dust. The completion of this item of work showed the quality of the service provided by the company, combined with a competitive tender and led the school to take on their services to carry out the regular daily cleaning .

During this period the cleaning has been of the highest standard and is completed without any effort from school staff. Work is always well supervised and regular quality checks are undertaken both by the in house team supervisor and by the Easy Clean management team. Any issues that have arisen; and these have been few and far between, are always swiftly and competently dealt with immediately.

Easy Clean now provides for all of the school’s cleaning requirements, including facade cleaning, window cleaning, one off summer deep cleans, including carpet cleaning and machine floor scrubbing and the supply of all required cleaning materials and equipment. Suffice to say that the school no longer has to expend any effort in the management or supervision of the day to day cleaning regime.

Easy Clean promise an excellent result, which they then go to great lengths to maintain. The main benefit for the school is that you are releasing your cleaning department to a company, who is professionally qualified to advise and supply you with the best overall package, which provides a value for money, quality, cleaning solution . You can expect a high level of delivery, quality, and uniformity with Easy Cleans’ service. Alongside this, every issue surrounding this department becomes Easy Cleans responsibility. This includes any staffing issues, absences, the standard of cleaning, the procurement of products and supplies and the organisation of the whole operation. With someone else taking responsibility for all of these tasks, we can focus our efforts and the savings we have made elsewhere.

Growth gives a new sparkle to Thames cable cleaning firm

A thriving Peterborough company is cleaning up in the face of the financial squeeze that has gripped the economy.

Bosses of EasyClean have just announced a move from Fletton to prestigious new premises in Yaxley.

The move to Osprey Way, on the Eagle Park Business Park, caps a terrific year for the firm.

The firm, which employs 170 people, managed to secure the contract to clean the cable cars on the system over the Thames set up for the Olympics.

EasyClean had outgrown its old premises based in Fletton due to significant expansion over recent years, despite the severe recession.

The firm has moved into a new 4,000 sq.ft, stand-alone premises.

The premises were purpose-built to its own specification and includes ground and first floor large offices and warehouse storage with secure parking.

Lee Rudd, managing director, said: “We are delighted at the move which is as a result of the award of a number of significant contracts locally and across the region, including London.”

Contracts include Anglia Ruskin University, Anglian Water, Peterborough City Council, London Borough Councils, McCains Foods, Brookfield and Kier Construction.

Mr Rudd added: “We were excited to be involved in the Olympics which included the award of the contract for the daily cleaning of the new cable car which crosses the Thames by the O2 Arena.

Commercial manager Lindsey Ritchie said: “The business growth would not be possible without the commitment and professionalism of our workforce.

EasyClean targets small and large businesses, from offices requiring two hours of cleaning per day to large hospitals and universities.

* The firm’s expansion comes as new figures show the number of people claiming Job Seeker’s Allowance in Peterborough has fallen for the second month in a row.

Peterborough’s claimant count fell by 200 during December to 5,721.
