Can You Trust Your Cleaning Contractors?

by Brad Staines
In an age where confidential information is increasingly susceptible to theft, and your obligations to ensure the safety of your employees are of the utmost importance, it is vital that you can trust your cleaning contractors.
 
Not only are we fully compliant with the Data Protection Act (DPA) here at Aquamark Cleaning but, for your added security, we undertake a detailed check of all our cleaners, part of which is an enhanced check of their background using the Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) service. So you can rest assured that the people you allow into your offices are honest and trustworthy.
 
We Know Our Staff
 
As a family run business with 20 years’ experience in the commercial cleaning industry, our staff are almost like an extended part of our family. We don't just let anyone into the fold, which is why we make sure all employees are CRB cleared. Furthermore, we prefer to employ fully-vetted, reliable and experienced cleaners rather than using sub-contractors, as we believe this gives our clients a more controlled, trusted and consistent service.
 
Our staff also receive health and safety training covering Electrical Safety at Work, Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) and Accident Reporting. As well as being a legal requirement, we feel that proper training improves the overall quality of the operatives we employ.
 
Don't Just Let Anyone into Your Offices
 
You wouldn't employ a member of staff if you felt you couldn't trust them. So why would you give a stranger access to your office and employees if you weren't 100% sure they could be trusted? When you give your office key to a third party, can you be certain that your confidential business information is secure and won't be disclosed? Are you confident your staff are working in a safe office environment late at night when someone else has access to them?
 
Fortunately, you don't need to worry about these things when you hire Aquamark Cleaning. As well as ensuring our staff are CRB checked and DPA compliant, we ask them to supply proof of identification, bank account details, references and complete tax information. Furthermore, we conduct routine site inspections, making sure the services being provided are of a consistently high standard and ensuring our clients are satisfied and happy. So you can relax in the knowledge that your business and employees are safe and secure.
