Our Experience

Established in 1997 Shield Cleaning Services was born to fill a gap in the market for a well run cleaning organisation that delivers what it promises at each stage of the contract process. We are a reliable, sustainable business offering quality and value for money. We have grown steadily since inception by keeping in touch with our clients’ up to date needs, backing up our service with recognised accreditations, and introducing service innovations.

1. A Fully Managed Service

We have built up a team of experienced managers with dozens of years experience in the field. Each manager has full responsibility for decision making in their area of work and we have a short chain of command from top to bottom, and adequate cover for emergencies and special requests.

2. Help Desk & Administration

We have a loyal and dedicated back of house team who act as our helpdesk dealing immediately with a range of service enquiries.

3. Continual Improvement

The COVID 19 Pandemic has changed the world in many ways including the way that commercial cleaning is delivered.   We have adapted our systems and methodology to encompass the lessons learned from the Pandemic and we strive to offer our Clients new innovations to ensure the best and most up to date cleaning service possible.

4. Accreditation
