Club partners Hands Cleaners ensure the home of the Leicester Tigers is ready for visitors, whether they are attending matchdays or other functions at Mattioli Woods Welford Road. Here is their blog about how they do it.
Cleaning for Leicester Tigers is one of the most challenging contracts imaginable. The criteria required by our customer are complicated and fulfilment requires a flexible and responsive service every day of the week.
On matchdays at Mattioli Woods Welford Road, the loyal Tigers supporters expect a clean and tidy environment to watch their favourite team.
Before each match the corporate boxes and washrooms are cleaned and prepared for the influx of sponsors and partners, ready to enjoy the match.
During the match, we respond to hygiene incidents in the stadium, ready to deal with any situations and keep the stadium up to a high standard of cleanliness.
After the final whistle blows, the Cleaning Team get to work litter-picking throughout the stands and the stadium perimeter to ensure that functions outside of matchdays go ahead in a tidy environment.
Functions are varied in size and type, from as few as 10 people up to several thousand, and events can be scheduled using the same facilities within a 24-hour period, requiring the team to work their magic to turn round a used function room into a fresh and clean area.
Hands Industrial division also has experts in duties including graffiti removal, window cleaning, carpet cleaning, stanchion and cladding cleaning when required as well as pressure washing around the stadium and its perimeter.
A team of early-morning cleaners sanitises and cleans the club offices each day as well as the reception areas, education centre and amenities throughout the stadium.
The bespoke specification we have put in place has proved to be a great success and, through constant communications with the management team at the Leicester Tigers, we provide a ‘nothing is too much trouble’ approach to provide a value-for-money service.
