Video: Dr Gerba talks Office Hygiene

Dr Charles P. Gerba, a Professor of microbiology from the University of Arizona, points out the areas we should be concerned about in an average workplace, plus gives some quick basic tips on how to prevent the build up of bacteria and disease.

Dr Gerba’s most recent research uncovers the link between unhygienic workplaces and sickness, and the affect on productivity.

Can you afford to lose productivity? The average office desk has 400 times more bacteria than a toilet seat. The desk may look clean, but is it really?

Office Cleaning Services

Office Cleaning ServicesCrestClean office cleaning is more than just cleaning. Our aim is to create Healthy Clean Workplace environments for an organisation’s customers and staff. Having a clean and hygienic office is the simplest way to improve your workplace environment. It’s not an easy task: Staff eat at desks, they leave food in the fridge, they put their grubby hands everywhere, contaminating touch points: it’s estimated that 80% of infections are transmitted by touch. “Hot Desking” adds to the hygiene dilemma, as do sharing computer mice and telephones. Employers have a statutory requirement to provide clean and hygienic workplaces. A dirty workplace is often cited as a reason why staff leave.

Cleaning retail stores, showrooms

Presentation is everything in a retail or high foot traffic environment. Gleaming windows, shining floors and beautifully presented product are all part of attracting people into your space. Customers walk in with dirt and debris off the street…they also bring coughs, colds and the flu; potentially contaminating your environment. Cross contamination is now recognised as a leading cause of workplace sickness, and it is largely unseen. Germs pass from customer to staff, staff to staff, and next thing you have absenteeism. CrestClean utilises colour-coded microfibre cloths to clean hygienically, and Rubbermaid microfibre mops to clean floors expertly.

‘Impressed’ with Crest at Hobsonville Point Schools

The CrestClean Team at Hobsonville Point Schools – Dave Smazik and Tereza Kratka, Mareta and Donte Alipia, Tony and Jana Jones, and Barbora Opavova and Dominik Drahoninsky.

As Facilities Coordinator at Programmed Facility Management, it’s Alison Murison’s job to ensure the primary and secondary schools at Hobsonville Point run smoothly.

“At any given time, when someone walks into the schools they have to look pristine,” says Alison.

Fortunately, there are four CrestClean husband and wife teams to help her keep the schools looking sharp, which is especially important as all eyes have been on this high profile project. The Hobsonville Point primary and secondary schools are the result of the first public-private partnership established to construct and maintain a school in New Zealand.

“There is a lot of interest from the teaching sector and many tours are conducted throughout the schools on a weekly basis. Crest helps enormously with their high standard of cleaning and nothing is ever too much to ask,” says Alison. “For example, a lot of the functions that are held at the schools are often last minute and Tony and Jana, with their flexible approach and willingness to go the extra mile, always meet them.”

That includes functions with special visitors such as Prime Minister John Key, who made a recent appearance. View More >>

New Zealand’s Intellectual Property Office issued the trademark registration on 23 September 2014, after a six month period during which notice of the trademark is advertised and any objections to it can be filed.

Trademarks help to distinguish business assets and align them with a particular brand. According to the Intellectual Property Office, “The main purpose is to create a distinctive and preferably memorable brand that customers associate with quality products or services….This enables a business owning a quality trade mark to stand out in the market place and gain a competitive edge over its competitors. For some companies an effective trade mark can become their most valuable asset.” View More >>

Crest Finds a Place Among Local Businesses

The Hutt Valley Business Expo was a great time for Clare Menzies to catch up with local business owners and community members, such as Anna Geremia-Young, Membership Manager of Hutt Valley Chamber of Commerce.

The Hutt Valley Business Expo was a great time for Clare Menzies to catch up with local business owners and community members, such as Anna Geremia-Young, Membership Manager of Hutt Valley Chamber of Commerce.

From large international corporations like ANZ and Canon, to local shops such as Cupcake Sweeties and Heavenly Herbs, the Hutt Valley Chamber of Commerce’s annual Business Expo was a real mix of New Zealand commerce, says Clare Menzies, who is CrestClean’s Regional Director for Hutt Valley and Wairarapa.

Held on the 23rd of September at the Petone Club, it’s one of the largest business events of the year for the Hutt Valley and draws hundreds of attendees.

“It was great to get out networking with other businesses in my area,” says Clare. “There are about 65 booths so you get to meet many of the new businesses that have moved into the Hutt, as well as ones coming over from Wellington.”

A member of the Hutt Valley Chamber of Commerce, this is just one of many events Clare attends throughout the year and she initially came to it as an interested community business owner, however she sees a lot of potential for CrestClean to be involved in future expos.

“It’s an ideal situation for Crest to be part of this event next year as it will help promote us to other local businesses,” says Clare.
