Research suggests that clean schools create and help to maintain a better learning environment for pupils. Clean schools lead to better morale for both staff and pupils alike leading to potentially fewer sickness days and absences. Higher grades are also achieved. Parents too are likely to be more engaged and involved with a school and its objectives when they see that the environment is well maintained and clean. It follows that clean schools are safer schools too.
Informed school managers, business managers and head teachers recognise the value of a clean environment as well as the fact that regular cleaning enhances the life of a building.
A Range of School Cleaning Services
Over the past year PCC has been providing cleaning services at a number of Primary and Secondary Schools as well as Colleges In Leeds, Bradford, Wakefield and surrounding areas. We work with Independent Schools and Academies throughout West Yorkshire. The kind of services we deliver are wide ranging and depend on the type of school and their requirements – here are just a few examples:
We clean any external windows plus internal windows of classrooms, corridors, school halls and refectory areas. We use water fed poles for external windows and traditional methods for interiors.
Our initial site visit establishes whether we need access equipment for high level window cleaning or consider and discuss the possibility of roof access.
We can provide a whole range of diverse cleaning services including:
Gutter cleaning: This can be carried out when the windows are cleaned – twice a year is sufficient to keep gutters free of debris, leaves and weeds.
Pressure washing: When pathways become dirty and slippery they need pressure washing for appearance and to prevent accidents, particularly at Primary Schools and Playgroups.
Dusting: We provide high level dusting in sports halls and stairways and anywhere that is a magnet for dust and the build up of grime.
Seat Cleaning: Fabric seating in classrooms and Auditoriums is also essential to maintain hygienic standards.
In fact the list is endless – we can even remove footballs from flat roofs!
Just ask and the PCC team will tackle it!

How we work
We start with a free site survey which involves the School Caretaker or Business Manager. From this we can draw up a schedule of works designed to suit budgets and requirements.
Experience has taught us that forward planning is absolutely necessary in this sector so that work can be planned in to be carried out during school holidays or times to suit. We are currently planning and booking in work for the February half term and can also book further ahead for deeper cleaning services during the Easter break or long summer holidays.
