Contract cleaning specialist Monthind Clean has secured a three-year contract to work with the East Anglia Reserve Forces & Cadets Association (RFCA).
The contract will see Monthind deliver specialist cleaning services at firing ranges across the region.
Local teams from Norfolk, Essex, Suffolk, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire will visit sites with specialist equipment to deep-clean kitchens and remove contaminates biannually from 40 RFCA sites across the region.
Ceri Clark, contract support manager at Monthind Clean, said: "It's another example of how unusual our work can be. We've had to buy in specialist explosion-proof vacuum cleaners, and our teams go in wearing full personal protective equipment. Our job is to seal individual areas and stage clean to remove firing contaminants from the ceilings to the floors and everything in between."
The East Anglia RFCA is responsible for maintaining safe and compliant buildings for the Reserves Forces and Cadet Forces.
This includes the upkeep and day-to-day running of 200 sites across the region.
Nationally, RFCAs are responsible for the upkeep and development of some 350 Army Reserve Forces sites and 2,300 cadet sites on behalf of the Ministry of Defence. The emphasis is on ensuring that every site meets the required legal standard, then working hard to keep the sites in good condition, fit for purpose and secure.
