Hard floor cleaning along with carpet cleaning are the most diverse and technically challenging aspects of cleaning. We can all pick up and mop and bucket and learn to clean a floor within 30 minutes, there is a lot more to know about hard floors and a lot more to learn than just mopping a dirty floor.

The course has been developed in conjunction with Daniels Associates, a leading Registered Training Organisation in the Cleaning Industry.
