Communal Area Cleaning London

Cleaning Express provides communal area cleaning services to housing associations, property management companies and residence associations with regards to cleaning and maintenance of common areas including staircase cleaning, reception areas, post boxes and internal window cleaning. If you are a landlord or property management company we can also carry out cleaning services in the common areas of your HMOs at competitive prices.

A communal area in any building is the first place a visitor sees, so it should be clean and welcoming. Of course, in flat blocks, they must be clutter-free as communal areas can be real fire risks if they are full of unwanted items or rubbish. In office blocks where a lot of businesses are sharing the building, the communal areas are the first places that their potential clients see, if the communal area is messy and unclean, this reflects on their business.

In order to achieve the necessary level of cleanliness in most communal areas, you often need an army of cleaners! But don’t worry, we already have an army! Our cleaning team can come in and clean any communal areas of the buildings that you manage and ensure that they are safe, clean and rubbish-free.

Residential communal areas

Residential communal areas are typically common areas in blocks of flats (a lobby, for example) but they can also be any room that is used by an entire house in a multiple occupancy. So, in this case, we can clean the kitchen and bathroom and any other communal areas in a multiple occupancy house.

Commercial communal areas

Commercial communal areas are any part of an office building that is shared by multiple businesses, for example. These areas can be hallways, entryways, kitchens and things like that. However, our communal area cleaning services also covers shared offices and co-working spaces.

Cleaning duties will depend a lot on the type of property and will be discussed before we start working together.

  • Dusting & polishing of skirting boards
