One of the things we regularly get asked by friends, letting agents, clients and potential employees are what one of our ‘typical days’ might look like. In all honesty, every day is totally different and throws different challenges but there are general themes and processes we follow day to day.
5.30/6am – Leigh gets up and out of the house and is on his way to pick up some of the team by 7 am.
7am-8am – Team is picked up and ready to roll. Not to forget a swift coffee stop at one of our favorite independent shops to wake everyone up ready for a busy day.
8.30am – We will arrive at our first clean for the day around this time. The scope of work could be anything from an end of tenancy clean, carpet cleaning, waste clearance, oven cleaning. This goes for all of our cleans throughout the day and there could be up to four or 5 to manage and get through.
Once we arrive, we’ll enter the property and check that the property is ready to be serviced before anything else. Once this is confirmed, we will unload the van of chemicals, equipment and get cleaning or clearing straight away. We’ll always start with waste clearance first – there’s no point cleaning a property that’s full of personal belongings!
Clean complete, touch base with HQ to check there are no changes to the schedule. Also, HQ can update any clients if required, and we’re on to the next one and so on.
12pm – We’ll have completed at least one and are probably halfway through the second clean by now. A stop by the suppliers might be needed to top up on any chemicals we’re running low on. Leigh will take note of what we have left so we know what’s going to be needed.
12:30pm – A quick bite to eat on the go or a pit stop at our favorite locally run Oak Tree Cafe on the Gloucester road.
1pm – Check in on how we’re getting on, are we going to get everything done on time? Leigh will speak to HQ and check everything is still running to plan.
Keep on cleaning…. and on to the next jobs.
6-8pm – Leigh’s day can run as late as is needed, but will usually stop cleaning by 8 pm. Time to drop the team home. At the end of each day, a chemical audit needs to be completed so that stock is always on the van ready for the next day’s first job or two. Keys will be dropped back to any offices or clients and collected for the following day. Another quick check-in with HQ to update them on the days’ happenings. And he’s finished, time for dinner and bed, then on to the next day!
