Lee Turner, Managing Director of Town & Country Cleaning said, “Kirkby Homes is an extremely important partner for us. They recently won a prestigious building award based on their quality of build, and it’s great to know they choose Town & Country Cleaning to finish the look”.
“Property development and refurbishment is a real passion for the company. The staff are hand picked from some 40 employees who really enjoy new build cleans…they are paid considerably more per hour for their hard work and get great job satisfaction from seeing an immediate impact from their clean”.
The partnership between Kirkby Homes and Town & Country Cleaning is working extremely well, and clearly based on shared values of professionalism and customer care. Everyone involved is committed to a long-lasting relationship with equal trust on both sides. Town & Country Cleaning ring-fences each team for a particular partner to ensure consistency in service delivery and everyone is motivated for all the potential work and not just any one-off project.
Lee Turner, Managing Director of Town & Country Cleaning said, “The quality of build from Kirkby Homes is exceptional, which is clearly derived from a strong set of values, leadership and professionalism throughout the company and includes the materials they use and the workmen and contractors they employ. It is important we build relationships with mid-tier builders and property developers, who we can have a similar relationship with over multiple projects throughout the year.
“Our focus is to work with the site manager to ensure we help deliver the property to the market in the best way we can. This can include identifying any snag lists including a window inspection, sweeping all the paths and driveway, cleaning gutters, pipes, external fittings, placing Neutradol deordorisers in all key rooms or managing repeat sparkle cleans throughout the sale process. We don’t leave the site until we get 100% satisfaction and ideally a site Manager signing off our work”.
