Regent Cleaning

 

Sports and leisure cleaning - it's no game!

Sports and leisure centres linked to local schools make for challenging environments in care and maintenance terms. Certainly, it's no game when it comes to cleaning them.


Four such environments are being cleaned under a single contract for Monmouthshire County Council by the Cardiff office of national contractor Regent Cleaning.

The largest of these, Chepstow Leisure Centre typifies the demands faced by its operations staff and Regent's cleaning professionals.

The Centre is within the grounds of Chepstow Comprehensive School and offers a broad range of facilities including swimming pool, an advance fitness suite, easyline circuit, saunas and steam room, ACTIV8 kids gym, four-court multipurpose sports hall and four-court outdoor multi use games area, full size Astro-Turf, aerobics studio, community rooms and various outdoor pitches.

Open seven days a week, this centre is used by the school pupils every weekday during term time.

It's a 0630 hours start for Chepstow's three Regent cleaners. One will be working in wet changing areas, corridors and sports hall until 1030, a second in the fitness suite, changing rooms, community rooms and dance studio until 0930, and the third cleaning the building's offices in time for the centre staff's arrival for work at 0830, the café/bar area and downstairs toilets.

The first cleaner stays on site throughout the day, ensuring that all public and circulation areas are kept clean in addition to routine deep cleans of sauna, showers and steam rooms.

Chepstow is around 30 years old and subject to refurbishment recently including the removal of most of its carpeting to be replaced by wood and Altro flooring, bringing aesthetic and in cleaning terms practical benefits to its users and those caring for it.

In addition to cleaning, Regent advises on application technologies and solutions.

Chepstow's assistant operations manager, Helen Dymond singles out the Cleanfix machines ("battery-powered, so no flex trips") and KaiVac pressure washers used daily, as well as the easy-dispense Soludoz chemicals system ("really effective and with environmental benefits", she says.)

Regent was one of five cleaning companies asked to present recommendations and costs to Monmouthshire County Council and won the contract to clean its leisure centres in April 2009.

In addition to Chepstow, Regent has teams working at centres in Caldicot, Abergavenny and Monmouth, each linked to its local comprehensive school.

It's clearly an advantage to have a cleaning operation that goes that extra mile, bringing years of practical and managerial experience as well as sound advice on sourcing the most practical, and cost-effective solutions to apply to task.

Helen Dymond is particularly impressed with the strong rapport between the centre's staff, its customers and Regent's personnel.

"While price is important, so is performance and Regent demonstrates a real understanding of our needs with a good team effort all round."
