Office Cleaning Frequently Asked Questions
What time do you arrive on site?
We have a completely flexible approach and will attend your premises at the time that suits your use of the site. This can be early mornings, before any of your staff arrive, during the day, or in the evening after everyone has left for the day.
Are you fully insured?
We have comprehensive insurance cover which, amongst other things, covers Public Liability for €10,000,000 and employer’s liability for €10,000,000. We also have cover for loss of keys.
How often do you clean a site?
Our service is tailored entirely to your requirements. We have a very broad mix of clients and for some, we will only attend once or twice per week. For other larger clients, we will have many cleaners on site at least five days per week. We build our service around what you need.
Do you have high staff turnover?
No. Due to the way in which we train, remunerate and manage our staff, we have very high retention rates. We still have some team members who joined us when the company started in 1988.
Will we always have the same cleaner?
Yes, as far as is practical. We always try to maintain continuity by using the same staff on a client’s contract. This helps to build extensive knowledge of the site, a healthy relationship and trust between the cleaning team and the client, and leads to increased security for our customers.
Do your staff receive training?
Yes. All managers and supervisors receive comprehensive training to enable them to manage the sites under their supervision in line with Alliance Select’s guidelines and required standards. Each of our cleaning operatives receives comprehensive in-house and in-situ training in all areas required for them to skilfully perform their duties. All Health and Safety issues and key company policies are covered in their initial training and induction.
Are all your staff vetted?
Yes. As part of our rigorous recruitment process, following interview, we obtain a previous employer’s reference and required proof of address and entitlement to work in the Ireland. We also require a copy of their passport and driving licence for our records. Where required, staff will also be DBS checked, to ensure additional security for our clients.
How do we pay you?
Commercial customers are invoiced per calendar month and are given 30 day terms from invoice date.
Do you supply everything required?
Yes. Generally, we supply all the labour, equipment, machinery and materials required to carry out all our cleaning tasks within the agreed price. Additionally, we regularly supply consumables such as toilet rolls, hand towels, refuse sacks, bin liners etc., which would be invoiced at the end of each calendar month.
What are your hourly rates?
We believe our prices are very competitive, but do not publish a fixed hourly rate. All jobs are priced according to the service required, whether it be a domestic or commercial service, a builders clean or a one-off deep clean. A number of variables will impact the final calculation of the rate such as equipment and materials.
Will the changeover to Alliance Select be smooth?
Of course. We have nearly 30 years’ experience in dealing with new office cleaning contracts, which allows us to be thorough with planning and client liaison in order to make the changeover a seamless process. We will also deal with all appropriate legislation, so the only difference you will notice is the planned improvement in service and standards.
Can you provide references?
Yes. Once you have received the formal quotation from us and are serious about going ahead, we will be happy to provide you with customer references to help you finalise your decision. We also have many testimonials from our existing customers on our website.
Can you unlock/lock and alarm the building?
Yes. This is a regular service offered to all our clients, large or small. This enables us to carry out our cleaning service outside normal working hours, thus minimising disruption to your staff.
Are we issued a cleaning contract?
Yes. Contracts are signed before going ahead with any work, along with the opening of your Alliance Select account.
Can we contact you outside office hours in case of an emergency?
Yes. Part of your contract will include access to Alliance Select’s hotline number so that we can help you with any emergencies that may arise – 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
Donard (historically Dunard, from Irish: Dún Ard, meaning ‘high fort’) is a small village in County Wicklow, Ireland, located at the northern end of the Glen of Imaal, in the western part of the Wicklow Mountains.
Donard takes its name from Dún Ard – High Fort – the ruins of which are still somewhat visible on a rise above the town. The tranquil village is surrounded by Table Mountain (702m), Church Mountain (546m), Lugnaquilla (924m) and Keadeen (655m).
Nearby in Derrynamuck (also known as Dernamuck or Doire na Muc) is a cottage dedicated to the memory of Michael Dwyer, a celebrated 1798 leader. It is well known as Dwyer’s Cottage, or the Dwyer-McAllister cottage, for it was here that a group of Irish rebels led by Michael Dwyer were hiding when they were surrounded by British troops. Samuel McAllister died when he drew enemy fire to allow Dwyer to escape, and thereby prevent further bloodshed as the British troops were killing innocent farmers in nearby cottages to reach Dwyer.
The highest mountain in Wicklow and one of the highest mountains in Ireland, second only to Carrauntoohil in Co. Kerry is Lugnaquilla, which can be accessed near the village of Donard. This mountain has a height of 925 metres(3,035ft). The Wicklow Mountain Rescue team operates in the area.
Much of the surrounding Glen of Imaal (5,948 acres) has been used as an army artillery range since 1900.
A post office was opened in Donard in 1851 and An Post closed it at the end of 2018.
