Managing ongoing hygiene standards

There are additional cleaning tasks that should be undertaken on a quarterly and/or six monthly basis, e.g. clean window blinds, internal windows and dust high level surfaces.  To help maintain a good working relationship between the customer and cleaning services company there should be agreed standards in-place that can be benchmarked against during cleaning inspections.
