How often sweeper sweeps the common areas?

Postby Oppsgal » Thu Mar 15, 2012 10:53 am

Litters are often blown from neighbours' house outside our house. Litters could be left for few days before "disappear".

So, how often sweeper sweeps the common areas of HDB? Why washing the common areas by splashing water every few weeks, sometimes still got cobwebs left around?

u mean the part of the corridor outside your apt? Think they hardly go there.

BTW, u mean your neighbours throw litter out of their front door?

In the past, the sweeper was a Bangladeshi and he sweeps the corridor everyday. Now it's a local man and he sweeps about once a week or less. Worse of all, he smokes while he sweeps. Sigh.

Mine also come once in a blue moon - or upon complaint. Litter left by inconsiderate neighbours could be there for days.

Once someone vomitted in the lift - really bad. By 8am the next day, it still wasn't cleared. In the past, I think the cleaners start work about 6ish becos I saw them before. But now, it seems like it's invisibles who do the job becos I no longer see cleaners around.

Really?

Last time notice the sweeper using a broom sweep the ceiling.

Now, nobody does that and spiders and insects are making their homes outside. Every few days got a few came to our house. Should I personally go sweep outside? :faint:

Maybe I should ask for a pay if so? :roll:

I am not sure who is the one throwing litter. Often got bits of sweet wrappers, strings, ball of threads or leaves blown from don't know where to our place. :shrug:
