Why our cleaning method works for dorms and
blocks of large student accommodation.
We'll have to go a little off track here but there is a point. One of the most efficient man-made processes since the turn of the Industrial Revolution is the manufacturing assembly line. From Henry Ford to the sophisticated Toyota factories, these optimised assemblies have paved the way to prove that a team comprising of one person specialising in one action can output a far greater result than a group of individuals multi-tasking. Especially when that individual is working to tight time constraints, resolving unavoidable issues on the fly and handling the pressure of meeting exacting standards.
Turn the assembly line into a corridor with 100s of individual rooms. Turn the assembly workers into cleaners, give them one job and the correct training - be it dusting, vacuuming, bed making etc. Now they have one thing to do and they get more efficient after every room is complete creating incremental improvements over a period of time.
In addition to the physical time efficiencies of above, gains are also made psychologically as we instil a very strong work ethic into our cleaners with unambiguous roles and duties. As we arrive on campus together, work as one large group, take breaks at the same time rather than staggered and sleep/ stay on campus, a positive working environment and true feeling of being a key member in a supportive team is created. This togetherness has a huge impact on all elements of staff wellbeing and produces a family mentality which is a pleasure to work in and ultimately gets the job done.
The PKC cleaning process also drastically reduces decision making fatigue and therefore the risk of procrastination. Imagine how efficient you would be if you only had one thing to do! The single job mentality allows our cleaners to take ownership and accountability of their cleaning and the feedback from employees has proven the effect is an increase in job satisfaction and happiness.
With this process, the equipment used by our cleaners rarely if ever needs to be shared so there are no delays of staff wandering rooms looking for a vacuum or dusting cloths. We have found over time that the ownership of equipment and products has reduced general wear and tear so items last longer which is better for us and the environment.
The support/ room sign off
Further benefits are a single room or the communal areas will have up to 7 individuals passing through it before being signed off - typically 6 cleaners and a final supervisor/ manager signoff. So if something small is missed by one cleaner, it will be resolved or highlighted immediately. It is this reason why we have so few re-clean requests by University management teams and no complaints from students.
Like optimised manufacturing assembly lines; one person, one job.
Resulting in a process that is physically quicker than traditional cleaning methods.
There are psychological and benefits and a family work ethic.
Rooms and student halls have multiple people checking throughout the clean so less chance of things being missed.
Final sign offs/ handovers are faster and the quality of the clean greater than outdated cleaning models.
A lesser need for University management teams to be involved, so we take less of your time.
Our model allows for flexibility and agility, so we can meet specific requirements depending on the cleaning projects.
