Communal Cleaning Fraser

7 reasons why Block Managers should hire a Professional Cleaning Company

Block Managers rely on their contractors, and a communal cleaner is no exception.
Communal cleaning companies can offer several benefits to a community or shared living space and with so much back of forth, especially in larger developments, it is important that you employ the right time, for the right block.

Clean and hygienic environment: A communal cleaner ensures regular cleaning and maintenance of shared spaces, promoting cleanliness and hygiene. This helps prevent the accumulation of dust, dirt, and germs, which can lead to various health issues.

For those living in a block of flats, you will pay for the communal spaces to be maintained via your service charge.  As part of that maintenance, you will likely expect for the communal hallways, entranceways and windows to also be cleaned by a professional cleaning company. 

Some benefits to having a communal cleaner are:

  • Time-saving: Residents don’t have to spend their valuable time and effort cleaning common areas themselves. By hiring a communal cleaner via their residential block management company, individuals can focus on their personal tasks and responsibilities, knowing that the shared spaces will be taken care of by a dedicated professional.
  • Consistency in cleanliness: With a communal cleaner, cleaning tasks are carried out on a regular schedule. This consistency helps maintain a clean and tidy environment at all times, creating a positive living experience for everyone in the development.
  • Expertise and professionalism: Professional communal cleaners are trained in various cleaning techniques, equipment usage, and safety practices. They have the expertise to handle different surfaces, materials, and specific cleaning requirements, ensuring thorough and efficient cleaning.
  • Improved property value: A well-maintained and clean communal area can enhance the overall appearance and appeal of the property. This can positively impact property values and attract potential buyers or tenants who prioritise a pleasant living environment.
  • Conflict resolution: When cleaning responsibilities are shared among residents, disputes and disagreements may arise regarding cleaning standards and frequency. Having a communal cleaner eliminates such conflicts, as the cleaner is responsible for ensuring consistent cleanliness, addressing individual concerns, and maintaining a harmonious living environment.
  • Enhanced community bonding: A communal cleaner can foster a sense of unity and cooperation within the community. Residents may interact with the cleaner, fostering a friendly and familiar atmosphere. This shared responsibility for cleanliness can encourage residents to take pride in their community and work together towards maintaining a clean and pleasant living space.
  • Additional services: Depending on the arrangement, a communal cleaner may provide additional services beyond basic cleaning. This could include tasks like rubbish removal, organising common areas, or light maintenance work, further benefiting the residents and contributing to the overall well-being of the development.

Laura Dent, from So Fresh and So Clean said “Maintaining a good relation between our team and property managers is essential. Property managers are always busy problem solving so having a team in place that they can trust takes the pressure off all, creating a harmonious work flow in the blocks, resulting in happy residents.

As cleaning technicians, we are on site weekly sometimes daily, we add value by being the eyes and ears on the ground.  Reporting maintenance issues before they become worse, reporting any unwanted visitors before they misuse the common areas, even down to testing fire alarms. More often than not a trusted cleaning suppliers role turns more into a caretaker role.”

It’s important to note that the specific benefits of a communal cleaner may vary depending on the needs and preferences of the community or shared living space.
