Unscrupulous cleaners have recently been the focus of police investigations in a number of countries. A cleaner who stole two blank cheques from the home of TV illusionist Derren Brown cashed the cheques for £33,000. Mr Brown had left the blank cheques in his home for his assistant in case of emergency while he was on tour. The cleaner pleaded guilty to the theft and is now facing prison.
Another cleaner in the US has been arrested over the theft of a bust of Benjamin Franklin from a Philadelphia home. The bust is worth an estimated US$3 million and the cleaner was caught by the FBI just one month after the theft. Finally a cleaner in Tauranga, New Zealand has just pleaded guilty to stealing donations and childcare payments worth around NZ$1700 while working at a local church.
Concerns about cleaning contractor security are often heard in the commercial cleaning world. However, the innovative Performance Bond used by ProCare is able to address these concerns. Any cleaner working for ProCare has to place a financial bond with the company, which will be forfeited if they cause the contract to be lost. So it not only is a guarantee that the cleaner will provide a consistent and high quality service, but it is also your assurance that they will not steal. With many ProCare cleaners having worked for the company for over 15 years and earning higher wages than many other cleaners, clients can be sure that they are receiving an exceptional and trustworthy service from ProCare.
