We work out a schedule for your cleaning service when you sign the initial service agreement. Weather emergencies, holidays may cause deviations from the schedule, but we generally keep the them as closely as possible.

What days of the week and hours do you work ?
If our clients need us to, we can work 7 days a week. Most of our customers prefer our evening and night cleaning service, but some customers have morning or daytime cleaning schedules.

We store all codes and keys or other access items in a locking key safe when possible. All keys and codes are returned to the customer when the contract is terminated.

We perform thorough background checks on all our employees, including criminal background checks. Whether you hire RPO Systems or not, insist on a clear criminal record for all the cleaning staff entering your premises.
We also perform regular inspections on site, and although they are regular, they are not scheduled inspections, so our staff know that an inspection could take place at any time. Most of the business we provide cleaning services to have security cameras in place as well.

We are fully bonded to cover any potential loss.
