Quality Control

The biggest challenge in the service industry is consistency. Paramount Services' answer is careful franchisee selection, comprehensive training, continuous communication and quarterly client quality assurance surveys.

As owner-operators our franchisees have a personal stake in quality control and customer satisfaction. Our management systems are certified to conform with the ISO 9001:2008 quality standard. Download our commitment to quality statement.


A major focus for us is sustainability and the use of environmentally friendly cleaning products and methods. All of our standard cleaning chemicals are Environmental Choice approved.

One of our aims is to achieve zero waste to landfill from our client's sites. We offer recycling services to businesses including collecting plastics, paper, glass, aluminium and cardboard products.

Paramount Services is certified for the internationally recognised ISO 14001:2004 standard for environmental management systems. See our ISO Certifications page.
