Educational establishments, including schools, colleges, and universities, will all have varying requirements when it comes to facilities management. These institutions serve as centres of learning and places where students, staff, and visitors will often spend a significant amount of time.
It is important therefore that these environments are well-maintained, are clean and tidy and conducive to learning.
Distinct requirements met
At the Tudor Group, we have a wealth of experience in providing tailored cleaning solutions through our specialists at AQS, and have gained valuable insights into the specific challenges that educational institutions face.
One such challenge is the high foot traffic. Maintaining cleanliness is a priority, with many students and staff moving throughout the building daily. Our teams implement efficient cleaning schedules and use appropriate cleaning techniques to mitigate disruption to facility use.
Large communal areas, such as canteens and assembly halls, need special attention due to high usage. We maintain these areas to a high standard through professional cleaning leveraging the right equipment to keep communal places pristine.
Educational establishments have specialised spaces, such as laboratories and IT suites, each with unique cleaning needs. The Tudor Group works hard to guarantee that they remain clean, hygienic, and conducive to learning.
For instance, laboratory environments require stringent cleaning protocols and the safe disposal of hazardous materials, while IT suites necessitate proper cleaning techniques to prevent damage to delicate equipment.
Then there are seasonal needs specific to schools and colleges, where deep cleaning during the summer break or maintaining cleanliness during examination periods is really valued. The Tudor Group offers bespoke services that meet these changing demands so that educational institutions get the best FM services with the least disruption to their core running.
The specific services we bring
We offer a wide range of cleaning services designed to meet the diverse needs of these establishments. Some of the most common services we provide include:

Our extensive experience in the education sector has enabled us to develop specific strategies and best practices tailored to the unique needs of these institutions.

Our specialist teams also understand the need to work closely with on-site facilities managers and other stakeholders to ensure seamless service delivery that aligns with an institution’s goals and objectives.
Expertise in education FM
Our specialist teams are also experienced in delivering cleaning services at student accommodation centres with clients including iQ Student Accommodation, Hello Student, and Cardiff University.
We work across these locations to deliver deep cleaning services for university accommodation at the end of each academic year, in preparation for the wave of new students who will be occupying the rooms at the start of the new academic term. Cleaning on this scale requires, good communication, excellent planning and the right team in order to achieve success.

Indeed, last year our teams cleaned an incredible 3,500 rooms and 1,000 kitchens across four cities in only three months.
Our work at Harper Adams University Agri-Tech Innovation Hub also showcases our ability to take on specialised cleaning projects in the education sector.
The Agri-Tech building required a one-off deep clean, including removing algae from the external façade, cleaning internal glazing on the atrium, and deep cleaning the warehouse area.
