At Shipshape Cleaning we pride ourselves on the quality of staff we employ.

When we are looking for our little gems we recruit staff local to the site and we go through a rigorous process of interviews, reference and ID checks for every single person before they commence work on any site. We not only have a legal but a moral obligation to ensure all our staff meet the legal requirements.


Training is of paramount importance to us on all levels. We firmly believe in investing time and training for every staff member from the start of their employment. This way we can be certain of providing a standard to you that is exceptional.

Cleaners, team leaders, site supervisors are all given a full induction specific to your site. This includes a 'practical cleaning workshop' COSHH and Health and Safety Training. Induction paperwork is signed by the operative and trainer which is kept on their personal file.

As part of our training each cleaner is given their own set of equipment and cleaning products in order for them to carry out their duties to our high standards.

We use 'best practice' procedures of colour coding cloths, mops and equipment to ensure no cross contamination occurs and this is a standard cleaners must adopt from the start.

Quality Control

We have the highest cleaning standards within the industry. All our staff are monitored to ensure these standards are being consistently met.

We carry our regular cleaning inspections called Quality Review Logs on all sites. The reports are available for inspection by yourself when we sit with you to hold our regular review meetings. That way you get to see firsthand the results of inspections by our management team.

Customer Service

Not only will your cleaning team, Site Supervisor and Area Supervisor know and understand your building and contract, our Customer Service Team will also. We do not and will not operate call centres, therefore, every call is dealt with in a timely, efficient and personal manner.


Shipshape believe in taking care of our employees and rewarding good work and loyalty. That is why we have incentive reward schemes in place. These are very popular with our staff and it's our way of saying 'thank you' the hard work has been recognised and appreciated.

Uniforms and ID Badges

Our staff have and must wear a staff uniform and ID badge. Apart from looking smarter it's a way of ensuring further security. Your staff can then easily identify cleaning teams within your building or site.


Staff working on building sites are equipped with full PPE.

Your Dedicated Team

Every contract has its own dedicated team to work solely in your building or on your site. They will know and understand the specific requirements and cleaning schedule for your contract. Within this team we provide trained staff for holiday cover who once again know and understand your specific requirements.
