Swiftclean Scotland goes live!

By | News, Swiftclean | No Comments

We are delighted to announce that, thanks to a new working partnership with one of Scotland’s foremost property services providers, we are launching Swiftclean Scotland as a new entity.

As you probably know, we have already been working in Scotland for many years, serving valued customers such as Caledonia Housing Association, North Lanarkshire Council, Fairmont Hotel, Carillion, Arthur McKay Building Services and Jury Inns. Now, however, by teaming up with Platinum Property Maintenance, we are establishing a more permanent base in Scotland, at Platinum’s head offices in Hamilton.

By joining forces with Platinum Property Maintenance, we will be able to make our expert services available to their customers, but will also be able to offer Platinum’s comprehensive package of property maintenance and building services to our Scottish customers as well.

Our two offerings are highly complementary, and together we will be able to offer not only the necessities of every property maintenance schedule, but also some highly-specialised services. Our award-winning TR/19 compliant ventilation ductwork cleaning, kitchen extract fire safety cleaning, fire damper testing and legionella risk assessment and control services will now be matched by Platinum’s highly skilled maintenance services. These include glazing, gas engineering, electrics, plumbing, roofing, joinery and decorating. Platinum is also a preferred provider of remedial works for insurance claims against flood, fire, accident and storm damage.

Now one phone call to Swiftclean Scotland gives you access to all these skills and solutions. Like Swiftclean, Platinum Property Maintenance has an excellent track record, serving clients from private landlords with a single property, to those with vast property portfolios, in both the private and public sectors.

Swiftclean Scotland will be launched at the Lanarkshire Business Show in Motherwell on 1 March 2017. So, from now on, for the areas of the property that you see and use every day, as well as the parts which you can’t see but are safety critical, there’s one company you can always turn to.

We hope all your Christmas surprises are pleasant

While shepherds washed their socks…..

Yes, we know those are the wrong words, but a lot of people get laundry extract management wrong too. That’s why we’ve launched our new laundry extract cleaning service, which eliminates one of the most prevalent, but least known, fire hazards – accumulated lint, fibre and dust particles in laundry extracts. If your organisation processes a large quantity of laundry on site, you need regular laundry extract cleaning, and you also need to be sure that fibres haven’t encroached on your main ventilation system too.

Check the halls…of residence
…and every other building with fire dampers. Let’s face it, the only place you want a blazing fire at Christmas is in the hearth. Your guest’, residents’ and visitors’ safety depends on it. If you have fire dampers, you must know where they are and you must have them tested regularly, every one or two years, depending on their type and the use of your building.

Fire prevention officers and the HSE are being particularly active about this, so don’t wait until the New Year to resolve to tackle this. We can make it easy for you with our dedicated fire damper drop testing service.

Eat, drink and be safe

Christmas preparations should include ensuring that your kitchen extract system is clean and safe at the busiest time of the year. If you don’t carry out kitchen extract fire safety cleaning to the TR/19 guidelines in accordance with your legal responsibilities, it may not only be Santa who thinks you’re naughty rather than nice. Negligence in this area can result in prosecution and even a custodial sentence.

We can protect you from all that with our dedicated kitchen extract fire safety cleaning service. Competitively priced and cost effective, we’ll help keep you on Santa’s good list.

Merry and bright

It’s all too easy to get it wrong with legionella control in your water too, so let’s be bright about it. If your risk assessment is not up to date; if you have made any alterations to the water system since your last risk assessment; if your water tanks haven’t been cleaned in a long time; or if your building will be unoccupied for a while over the Christmas period; now is the essential – and perfect – time to tackle your legionella control.

Wishing you a prosperous and safe Christmas period and a fully compliant 2017!
