Who we are
What we do


Hot desking specification and price - BC0077
‘Hot-desking’ is becoming an increasing part of office provision:

  • Have you developed a cleaning specification for this kind of workstation
  • What additional cleaning do you do e.g. sanitise telephones, keyboards etc.?
  • How and what do you price the job

Cruelty-free & ethical cleaning products – BC0074/270612
Some Councils are seeking to specify cruelty-free products/chemicals for use in building cleaning:

  • Do you currently use ‘cruelty-free’ cleaning products?
  • What ‘ethical’ requirements are currently specified for cleaning products if any?
  • Are you aware of the BUAV accreditation?
  • Are you aware of the Ecolabel accreditation?
  • Would the ability to offer a cruelty-free product interest your customers?

Output specifications - BC0073/030512
Do you have examples of output based cleaning specifications that you can share?

Building Cleaning - staff newsletters - BC0072/260312
A member authority is seeking to establish a staff newsletter for its cleaning staff.
