Other companies are cheaper, why choose you?
The home cleaning industry is entirely unregulated, we choose to get external trainers in and follow best practise. We choose to give our staff fair contracts, rights, holidays and decent pay. We invest in the best equipment. Unfortunately, not every company does and you may not find out until it goes wrong.
