Established in 2005, UCS are able to offer a wide range of services. We have a multi-discipline package for apartment block managers. For instance, we can take care of small property maintenance tasks, such as the replacement of light bulbs in communal areas, smoke alarm battery replacements, stair cappings and much more.
Just think about how much time we can save you as a block manager by taking care of these routine property maintenance jobs whilst we are carrying out the cleaning and grounds maintenance. No need for seperate contractors, just UCS.
We can carry out those jobs such as replacing light bulbs in the communal areas. We always carry the correct selection of bulbs on our vans. What about the smoke alarms? We carry batteries for those too. Whether it's broken door furniture, broken/missing stair cappings, exterior cigarette bins, UCS can help.
UCS can also help with testing the fire alarms, emergency lighting, smoke detectors and automatic opening vent systems. Check out our compliance testing page for more details
Through use, sometimes stair cappings will become detached. As well as being unsightly, this can also create a hazard. We are equipped to deal with issues like these, making sure that residents can be happy and safe.
Broken door furniture can really detract from the entrance to a property. Fortunately UCS are equipped to deal with this for you, saving the need to call another contractor in to sort it out
As part of our property maintenance services, we can replace light bulbs in the communal and external areas of your buildings. Our fully equipped vans carry stock of the common bulb types used. No need to call in a maintenance contractor when UCS can do it whilst cleaning your properties
A necessity in many apartment buildings is somewhere for residents to dispose of cigarettes when smoking outside. A scruffy cigarette bin can detract from the appearance of a building.
No need to call out a maintenance contractor to deal with lock repairs, be it for doors or gates to external areas. UCS can help with this too, meaning any potential issue is dealt with promptly and efficiently
A client asked us to install a notice board in the communal entrance hall of one of their apartment buildings. No problem for UCS. We try to be as flexible as possible, and will help with these little one-off jobs wherever possible.
Apartment block managers are subject to increasingly stringent legislation when it comes to the safety systems in apartment buildings. As part of the legal obligations, the fire alarm, smoke alarm, smoke detectors and AOV's all have to be regularly tested. Property managers simply can't spend all their time carrying out the testing. UCS can carry out the compliance testing for you, completing the on-site logs, and reporting back to you if anything requires further attention
Richard and his team at UCS are very accommodating and always operate to the highest standard. They are reliable, trustworthy and willing to undertake all jobs. HLM Property Management has no problem in recommending UCS for all their cleaning, gardening and property maintenance work.
I have been working with UCS for over a year now and are so pleased with their work we have transferred a number of new contracts to them. We have always found them reliable, value for money and communicative at all times – would definitely recommend them to any company looking for this type of work.
As a Property Management Company we work with a variety of contractors. Richard and his team at UCS have been carrying out works for us for a number of years and I can say with pride that all the staff are extremely courteous, friendly and polite. If you need something extra doing, the team are always happy to help. I would not hesitate to recommend them to any other Property Management Company, business or resident that requires their services.
We have known Richard from UCS personally for several years now and using the services of the Company on a professional basis for at least 6 years through our Block Management and Lettings business, Sabelwood. We have always found them to be courteous, helpful, trustworthy and reliable whilst providing an excellent service.
Just wanted to say how delighted I am with UCS. Everyone has commented how clean the offices are on a Monday morning after your staff have been, and the high level of service you provide has been consistent throughout the months you've been with us. I will have no hesitation in recommending your company to other businesses and colleagues.
We have dealt with UCS since 2011. We have found them to be organised and helpful. No task is too big or too small and on occasions some of these tasks have not always been the most pleasant. UCS have provided not only the communal area cleaning and window cleaning for four large apartment blocks, but they have also been our eyes on the site, and have reported issues found within the building communal areas, and have on many occasions resolved lighting issues for the safety of the tenants. Each visit they test the fire alarms and report any problems. You really couldn't ask for anymore from them.
On meeting with the residents today, they had nothing but praise, along with me also, regarding the standard of cleaning. The blocks look immaculate every time I go to site to inspect them
