Communal Cleaning Overview
The New Communal cleaning contract has been awarded over a 3 year period, harmonising the quality & cyclic frequency of the cleaning to all Communal areas across the LHP housing stock. This includes communal areas to all blocks of flats including entrance foyers, stairways, corridors, open landings, and where there are designated refuse storage buildings, are also included . In sheltered schemes to the Northern areas, community & recreational rooms & associated kitchen/ utility areas, communal Wc facilities are also included. This includes the replacement & replenishment of consumables such as, hand soap, hand towels, toilet rolls, toilet brushes & refuse sacks to internal waste bins in the communal areas. The only exception are the Sheltered & High care schemes in Boston Town and surrounding area which are managed & maintained by a dedicated team of LHP employees.
All communal areas will receive a weekly clean, comprising of mopping & washing of floors, stairways and main entrance foyers etc, wiping & sanitising of handrails to stairways, and washing and wiping down internal surfaces to walls. (It should be noted communal areas in the Southern areas were only cleaned monthly on the previous contract). Every communal area will receive an annual intensive deep clean, which involves machine scrubbing & removal of previously applied sealants & build up of ingrained detritus, reapplication of sealant & re-polishing.
