LOCAL AUTHORITIES

Our window cleaning experience for local authorities

Our work with local authorities is about having the flexibility to adapt how and when we work to provide a cost-effective and high quality cleaning service across a variety of different buildings.

How do you work with local authorities?
We understand that, for a local authority, it’s important to know that window cleaning will be carried out safely, efficiently and to a pre-agreed timetable. We work hard to ensure that’s exactly what you get.
