Front Desk Security

The safety of the residents in communities we manage is our utmost priority. FirstService Residential Ontario delivers exceptional 24/7 front desk security solutions to our communities.

  • Accompany contractors and vendors during maintenance and repairs inside the units

  • Monitor the building security systems

  • Patrol the building and common elements areas


Each building needs to be kept in pristine condition in order to create and maintain a healthy environment and great living conditions to residents. The cleanliness and upkeep of a building also plays a big part in the value of your home. At FirstService Residential, we take pride in our excellent reputation for the quality of housekeeping services we provide to our clients. We have a hardworking team of highly experienced housekeeping associates who are thoroughly trained and professional.

Our housekeeping associates, together with the property manager, ensure that each building’s cleanliness exceeds the requirements and meets the satisfaction of each client. With the support and supervision of the property manager, our housekeeping associates perform full-service janitorial and cleaning services on all common elements areas.
