Based in Sheffield and operating throughout South Yorkshire, North Derbyshire, North Nottinghamshire & West Yorkshire, RGS Cleaning Ltd was established in 1986 by Ray and Coral Guise-Smith. Their aim was to provide a high quality cleaning service for all types of industry.
As the business grew so did RGS’s reputation and today offers many of the advantages of national contractors whilst being delivered by a friendly, local family business.
With a large and diverse client base we specialise in servicing premises such as; offices, retail units (from shops and restaurants to bars, clubs and fitness facilities), department stores and schools. We also service medical centres and veterinary practices. We focus on the smaller side of the market where large nation contractors can not offer the same level of standards.
It was recognised early on that providing the best service is the result of a good partnership between the contractor and the client.
In 1985 Ray and Coral Guise-Smith started out with a window cleaning janitorial retail base. With an offer to quote for an office clean in Sheffield, this was the stepping stone that brought RGS Cleaning Ltd into existence. Starting the business from a bedroom in their home and by building their reputation, RGS moved to premises in Sheffield. Today these offices support a team of administrators and managers who are there to answer your questions and deliver your cleaning and janitorial supplies.
Ray’s 40+ years’ experience in the industry has involved everything from floor cleaning maintenance to selling cleaning machines, equipment and janitorial supplies. As a freeman & liveryman of the Worshipful Company of Environmental Cleaners he is an expert in his field.
Coral’s expertise in administration has ensured that client accounts run smoothly. Over the years the company has invested in MITC-STAFFCHECK computerised time management, which enables the cleaning hours worked to be monitored thereby preventing possible fraudulent time sheets and non-attendances, etc.
The Present & Future
