Who We Are

At Vanguard, we’ve built up a stellar reputation over the last 21 years. Starting life as a medical cleaning company, we’ve evolved over the course of that time to provide that same level of attention to detail to a wide range of sectors and industries.

We attribute that status not just to the service we provide, but to the commitment and dedication every single one of colleagues put in. Each member of our close-knit team resonates with the virtues we hold at our core, and endeavour to uphold the high standards we’ve worked so hard to cultivate.

Vanguard Cleaning company purpose and virtues

The Vanguard Virtues

We’re firm believers that a strong ethos can guide a company in all it does, and that’s something we aim to take forward in every contract we undertake. Our core virtues of Humility, Passion and a People First approach are all key motivators in everything we do, and have been since our inception back in 2002.

We feel these are integral to providing the service our customers look for, and in ensuring that we’re able to offer something that we’re proud to put the Vanguard name to. You’ll be able to see this reflected in the level of commitment from all of our cleaning staff and our senior management, as well as the due diligence and care we afford to each project we undertake.
