Yeesh, if they're trying to do cleanup behind themselves rather than e-mail you to let them know they'd rooted the box, it's time to switch. This goes double if (and, you may have specified regarding this; apologies if you have) you've already asked them in writing to never jump into your box without asking you first.

As others have said, if the provider has physical access, you can not expect mathematically no chance of them breaking in and grabbing or (worse) changing stuff.

Focus on what you are providing and just how secure it needs to be, and act accordingly.
