It makes sense to outsource your cleaning to a member of the NCCA
In this modern, image conscious world, appearances are all-important. Bright, clean and hygienic premises are conducive to attracting business and an incentive for improved staff performance.
The cost of keeping a building looking fresh as if new is without doubt an investment. But for those organisations that employ their own in-house cleaning staff, the expense can often prove to be prohibitive, not only in terms of wages and staff benefits, but also with regard to cleaning materials and equipment.

Member organisations of the NCCA know their business extremely well and to win and retain contracts they have to be able to provide a value-for-money service in a highly competitive market place.
Because they generally have several commercial cleaning contracts they are able to invest in the most efficient staff and equipment and also have the advantage of buying materials in bulk.
Members also are highly committed to skills training in terms of the National Qualifications Framework, and by belonging to the Association they are kept up to date on all matters affecting the Industry on an ongoing basis.
