Established by Shane Curran in April 2004, the company had one van and one part-time employee working with Shane. We now employ over 125 cleaning & hygiene professionals and have a fleet of 15 vans to support our operations.
We place a high focus on delivering quality, value-added services with personal attention to our clients. We are committed to delivering consistent measurable quality, achieved through continuous training of our cleaning professionals, implementation of our Quality Systems, and with hands-on supervision of our staff – our most valuable assets.
Our cleaning professionals are supported by a back-up team of supervisors, management and office personnel. We have a strict recruitment process to ensure we only recruit staff who possess the same attitude to quality and customer service as we do. Following their induction training, we implement a training plan for each staff member to ensure that they are equipped with the skills required to deal with our clients cleaning requirements, in a safe and professional manner. We conduct Garda Vetting on all our staff, who we empower to continually identify areas for improvement at our client sites and implement solutions with the assistance of our Supervisors.
