Estate cleaning and grounds maintenance

This page has details about how we keep the communal areas of our estates clean, including:

  • estate cleaning

  • communal cleaning

  • window cleaning

  • grounds maintenance

  • complaints about cleaning


Estate cleaning

Our environmental team is responsible for cleaning our estate:

  • entrance halls

  • balconies

  • refuse chambers

The concierge officers are responsible for the cleaning of concierge blocks only on the weekends and the enviromental services operatives take care of the cleaning during the weekdays. 


Communal cleaning charges

The communal cleaning charges for a building or a group of buildings are worked out by dividing the contract cost by the number of properties that receive the service.

Lambeth is divided into different contract areas for building and window cleaning, and also for grounds maintenance.


Window cleaning

Under the window cleaning contract, the windows in public areas are cleaned up to the 3rd floor in line with health and safety regulations by F&G window cleaners.

If you have any questions about the building or window cleaning contracts please speak to your housing officer.


Grounds maintenance

The green team is responsible for LEMB grounds maintenance. It is important to note that we only have a grass and shrub cutting service. The grass when cut is not collected and taken away except the shrubbery.

Under the grounds maintenance contract, the grass should be cut, hedges and flower beds tidied regularly.
