Not to ‘posh’ to clean offices

01 July 2010

London-based ‘green’ contract cleaning firm, Cleanology, featured on the BBC’s new documentary series, “Peckham Finishing Schools for Girls” this month when three ‘home counties’ girls experienced life in deprived South London.

Sharped eyed FMs watching the new TV series about four privileged young ladies who swap the leafy lanes of the Home Counties for the streets of South London to experience for themselves how life is lived on the other side of the tracks, will have been amused at their efforts in their office cleaning tasks. 
Cleanology, an independent family-run business, celebrating its 10th Anniversary this year, hosted the office cleaning episode that went out on Wednesday 16th June at  9pm on BBC3. Several of Cleanology’s operational team, including Head of Operations, Mrs Lesley Roff,  featured on the show.
The four girls were invited to take an early morning and late evening cleaning job at one of Cleanology’s central London sites, where they completed standard daily office cleaning duties, including emptying bins and scrubbing toilets.  Cleanology’s Executive Director, Dominic Ponniah, said: “We are delighted to have been invited by the BBC to participate in this new documentary series. The programme is both real-life and entertaining. Viewing is highly recommended.”
Cleanology’s clients include Fiat Cars, Hugo Boss, Talkback Thames television and the Wigmore Hall. The company was founded on principles of environmental responsibility and strict ethical employment practices, always paying cleaners in excess of the national minimum wage.
