Monthind Clean has secured a three-year contract through tender to work with the East Anglia Reserve Forces and Cadets Association (RFCA). The contract will see Monthind deliver specialist cleaning services at firing ranges across the region. Local teams from Norfolk, Essex, Suffolk, Cambridgeshire, and Hertfordshire will visit sites with specialist equipment to deep-clean kitchens and remove contaminants bi-annually from 40 RFCA sites across the region.
Ceri Clark, contract support manager at Monthind Clean, said: “It’s another example of how unusual our work can be. We’ve had to buy in specialist explosion proof vacuum cleaners, and our teams go in in full personal protective equipment. Our job is to seal individual areas and stage clean to remove firing contaminants from the ceilings to the floors and everything in between.”
The East Anglia RFCA is responsible for maintaining safe and compliant buildings for the Reserves Forces and Cadet Forces. This includes the upkeep and day-to-day running of two hundred sites across the region.
Kevin Humphrey, estates facilities manager for the East Anglia RFCA, said: “It’s essential that we work with a company we can trust to remove all the lead contaminates and dust from our firing ranges. The safety of the reservists and cadets who use them is paramount, and it relies on an outstanding level of cleanliness that few can deliver.”
