First Class Cleaning Staff

We pride ourselves on employing a professional, high-quality work force, as we believe in treating our employees well. This allows us to provide our clients with the highest quality, cost-effective service for your corporate brand.

We engage in extensive staff training and supervision. As a part of the cleaning process, supervisors perform routine inspections in order to ensure that your specifications and benchmarks are being met. In addition, our Account Executives routinely conduct surprise checks and inspections. Our proactive approach allows us to prevent problems before they occur.

Our employee turnover rate is half the industry average. This enhances the continuity of the services we provide by allowing our employees to take ownership of your property, as well as offering increased security for our clients. Furthermore, our employees are required to utilize uniforms and ID badges, which further enhance safety on your premises.
