Group company Places Management will be carrying out the cleaning services for blocks of flats from April 2019.
As we explained in the winter edition of Derwent Life, the decision to move the service in-house is based on a review of our current service and feedback from the residents' forum.
Many of the cleaning team will transfer from current provider Pinnacle PSG, so you recognise familiar faces, just new uniforms and vans.
New post-visit reports
One new feature of the change will be post-visit reports. The teams will have iPads and will complete reports including before and after photographs of the areas cleaned.
They will also be able to record and report any issues in communal areas for example fly tipping or repairs.
