  • “As the owner of multiple restaurants, all of our daily restaurant, equipment and kitchen cleaning is done by a company called Unique Support Services (USS). I have got to know the owner Paul Vincent pretty well and USS are superb for us, cost effective and nothing is ever too much trouble (including call outs). I have watched Paul build a sizeable business and a number of 5* central London hotels use his teams and have done so for a long time. If you are moving your support arrangements I would whole heartedly commend USS to you.”

    Andrew – Restaurant Owner – Central London
  • “I just wanted to email and say thank you to Paul and his team for the fantastic job they have done. Not only were they super efficient in terms of time, but the step and floors look fantastic, I can hardly believe how clean they came up.

    Thanks so much!”

    Natasha – Company Secretary – Fine Art Gallery
  • “We had a very successful H&S audit on Monday the  25th . We passed with 94% rate with BOH cleaning 10/10. Thanks to all the USS team for their hard work and dedication to the Conrad St James.

    We only had short notice to prepare but didn’t have to do any extra as the night cleaning team were already up to the best standard possible with all of the essential paperwork also up to date.
    I want to personally thank USS for the support that you provided us to achieve this great score.”

    Nuwan – Back Of House Manager, London 5* Hotel
  • ”Our hotel sees a lot of foot traffic day in, day out. It’s nice to know that there is a cleaning company in London that we can rely on to come and clean our flooring for us to a very high standard. We have been using the cleaners from Unique Support Services for many years and wouldn’t think of using anyone else.”
