What do neighbourhood caretakers do?
Neighbourhood caretakers clean internal communal areas to blocks of flats. Their responsibilities will depend on what kind of flat you live in.
Most of the high rise blocks (classified as level 1) get some services daily - for example the lifts and lobbies are swept and washed every day. Other blocks (classified as level 2) will get most services weekly and some monthly - for example the stairs will be swept and washed each week.
For full details of caretakers' responsibilities see the 'Guide to Housing Neighbourhood Services in Croydon' document below.
How do I know when my block will be cleaned?
Take a look at the cleaning schedule at the bottom of this page, blocks are listed in alphabetical order. The cleaning schedules are split into two types:
- Level 1 - these are high rise blocks that have a lift
- Level 2 - these are the lower level blocks that have no lifts
Cleaning schedules will also be visible in the communal entrance area of each block.
