We have been very privileged to have been asked to provide cleaning operations manuals and documentation, and dedicated training to organisations that employ or support people with learning disabilities. The valuable service these organisations provide help deliver the necessary and life-changing skills that enable people to enjoy complete independence.

The provision of cleaning services is a vital part, either directly or indirectly, of any commercial or public enterprise, particularly as it can have a direct impact on the health and wellbeing of staff, customers and the general public. And yet with such a close connection to the running of enterprise there is no universally agreed system of quality control of cleaning processes. Poor cleaning affects everyone: from lingering dirt and poor cleaning standards which has a subconscious effect on everyone, to a health and safety incident like an outbreak of an infectious microorganism, or even a slip on a wet floor.

Lean Cleaning and Team Cleaning

Known as 5S this comes from the Japanese Kaizen in Gemba system of working and it’s ideally suited to the cleaning industry if it’s applied as it should be. The lean concept has been used in manufacturing for a number of years and is now beginning to find application in other industries, including the cleaning industry. However it seems to be being promoted and often misunderstood as a way of saving money by not needing to employ so many people.

Cleaning Change Management

Introducing change into your cleaning system is a managed process of a series of critical steps, taken one stage at a time. With Futureclean as your expert partner, we will, for example, identify the key constraints within your cleaning operations and implement tailored solutions to drive effective and efficient change.

The domestic cleaning market in the UK is estimated to be worth nearly £3 billion, with more than 2.45 million households using some form of paid assistance in their home[1] It is highly likely that these figures seriously underestimate the true extent of the breadth of the market Since a significant proportion of the domestic cleaning market is comprised of small family-run sole traders or individual self-employed persons for tax purposes, there may not be any reliable numbers of persons actually engaged in domestic cleaning tasks. Now we come to the core problem of this very substantial market.
