They have done superb work for us, and it makes our jobs a lot easier at the end of the day. I cannot tell you how nice it has been to have their team’s high-quality, consistent, and dependable work being done at our distillery.

Further, I am so thankful to the cleaning crew manager, Yasmary, for all of the high-quality communication she has initiated with me every time there was clarification needed on any task.

To me, this kind of high-quality work and communication is exactly what ought to comprise a solid business partnership, and we are happy to be working in such a partnership with Vanguard – I highly recommend them!”

“USPC has been with Vanguard since 2015. Deidra White and her crew have been with us almost as long. Deidra is very attentive to our office space and is very responsive if we need something extra. We were very pleased with her flexibility during our shutdown and she and her crew were ready to help us bring our staff back to the office. We had no worries about the cleanliness. I enjoy working with Vanguard and Deidra White.”
