Teething Problems…!!

February 6, 2009

This week is our first with the new company.  Monday we didn’t go in because the EA closed early, to allow the workers to get home safely before the weather got too bad.  Yippee!!


Tuesday…oh, joy!!  I arrived to find that all the cupboards had been stripped of equipment and chemicals…including my stock cupboard on the top landing.  In their place were our new chemicals and equipment…minus a lot of necessary items. 


There were no red buckets or mops for the toilets…no special cleaning solution for the urinals…no brooms, dustpans or brushes….and no glass cleaner.  So toilets are not going to get mopped (eeugh!), terrazzo lobby and stairs not going to get swept, but the glass can be cleaned using damp paper towel then dry paper towel.  The hard surface cleaner is in pistol-grip sprayer bottles…but no trigger spray heads to fit on them!!!  (Actually, there was one in each case of six…and we found a couple that were at the back of the filing cabinet drawer…that got missed!)


I tried phoning the office, but there was no reply after five, so had to e-mail my request…I have no idea if or when anything will arrive.  We do have nice new sheepskin fluffy dusters though…!!!  Hmmmm…can’t exactly sweep the stairs with them, can we!


It’ll get sorted…eventually…!!

    You can only do what you can do, if you are not given the tools to do the job then they can not expect you to do a good job of it. I know there is a credit crunch and all but come on… but they really are asking a lot if they expect you to clean without all your equipment!

    Like you say Sandi, it\’s probably just teething problems. They\’ll get it sorted and then the place will be spick and span again. Take care. xx
