Everything in a day’s work for Hands Cleaners

Club partners Hands Cleaners ensure the Leicester Tigers home is ready for visitors whether they are attending match days or other events at Mattioli Woods Welford Road. Here is their blog on how they do it.

The cleanup for Leicester Tigers is one of the toughest contracts imaginable. The criteria required by our client are complicated and their achievement requires a flexible and responsive service every day of the week.

On match days at Mattioli Woods Welford Road, loyal Tigers fans expect a clean and tidy environment in which to watch their favorite team.

Before each game, the company’s dressing rooms and toilets are cleaned and prepared for the influx of sponsors and partners, ready to enjoy the game.

During the match, we respond to hygiene incidents in the stadium, ready to deal with any situation and keep the stadium at a high level of cleanliness.

After the final whistle, the cleaning team gets to work picking up rubbish from the stands and stadium perimeter to ensure non-matchday activities take place in an orderly environment.

Functions vary in size and type, ranging from 10 people to several thousand, and events can be scheduled using the same facilities within 24 hours, requiring the team to work their magic to transform a reception room used in a cool and clean space.

The Hands Industrial division also has experts in tasks such as graffiti removal, window cleaning, carpet cleaning, jamb and upholstery cleaning where required, as well as pressure washing around the stadium and its perimeter.

A team of early morning cleaners disinfects and cleans the club offices each day as well as reception areas, the education center and equipment throughout the stadium.

The bespoke specification we have put in place has proven to be a great success and, through constant communication with the Leicester Tigers management team, we offer a ‘nothing is too much trouble’ approach to delivering a good value for money service.
