CARDIFF WILL STAY SQUEAKY CLEAN, THANKS TO FOR CARDIFF

We’re delighted to announce the permanent extension of our deep cleansing programme across the city, following the success of its six-month pilot scheme. The commitment to keep Cardiff looking spick and span is part our pledge to make the city more welcoming for visitors.

The Deep Cleansing team will continue to react to cleaning requests from businesses as a permanent additional service to the everyday cleaning work Cardiff Council carry out.

Making it official, we have invested in a fleet of branded vehicles, equipment and uniforms to make sure the cleansing team are easily recognisable when they are working on the streets.

During the six-month pilot, the deep cleansing team have successfully dealt with over 300 cleaning requests from businesses and Street Ambassadors, making over 70 shop fronts sparkle and removing graffiti from 250 spots across Cardiff.

Executive Director of FOR Cardiff, Adrian Field, said: “The pilot scheme has been a huge success and based on the positive feedback from our city centre based businesses, we are now able to commit to deliver the service for the next few years.

“Our mission is to make Cardiff more welcoming, vibrant and influential and having clean streets plays a big part in that. We want to give visitors the best impression of the city and ensure Cardiff continues to build a positive reputation as a clean city, especially with major events like the NatWest Six Nations tournament, the Anthony Joshua fight and the Volvo Open Race happening in the next few weeks and months.”

General Manager of the Park Plaza Hotel, Margaret Waters, said: “The cleansing team have been doing a great job on cleaning up the streets, it’s been really great to see. I hope that people will continue to look after our streets, so we can keep Cardiff looking sparkly!”
