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

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.

Jamie and Marlene Madrid shine as Rookies of the Year in Invercargill.

It was April 2014, Marlene and Jamie Madrid had completed all of their training and were ready for the first contract in their new CrestClean franchise.

It wasn’t an easy one, according to Invercargill Regional Manager Glenn Cockroft.

“They quickly took on a school that was not in the best of shape from another cleaning company, but they made it sparkle,” says Glenn. “Their work brought very favourable comments from all of the staff.”

They now operate a number of contracts and continue to impress their customers. “I continually receive compliments on the way that they are conducting their business in the area,” says Glenn, adding that they’re also great team members. “Marlene is always ready to hop in and help out with additional work that comes available at short notice.”

They’re so pleased with their business very shortly after joining CrestClean they introduced a friend to the business who has also purchased a franchise.

Congratulations Marlene and Jamie, and keep up the good work!

CrestClean Goes Back to School with New Ormiston Primary

The CrestClean team of Salen and Rakeshni Prasad will be keeping the brand new Ormiston Primary School clean for Principal Heath McNeil and his young students.

The CrestClean team of Salen and Rakeshni Prasad will be keeping the brand new Ormiston Primary School clean for Principal Heath McNeil and his young students.

It’s the first day of school for a brand new primary in East Auckland. Ormiston Primary School’s beautiful new facility will be kept looking shiny by a dedicated CrestClean team on site daily.

The new school’s construction follows in the footsteps of nearby Ormiston Senior College, the first New Zealand school to achieve a 5 Green Star Education Design rating. The primary school anticipates achieving the same rating from the New Zealand Green Building Council, which certifies buildings based on environmentally responsible construction, such as energy efficient lighting, solar water heating and power and sustainably sourced materials.

CrestClean’s South and East Auckland Regional Director Viky Narayan says his team’s significant experience with schools, including Ramarama School where Mr McNeil was previously principal, helped in the selection of cleaners for the new facility. “Principals like Mr McNeil appreciate the professionalism and quality of work that’s part of Crest’s approach to school cleaning.”

The school’s green construction and features do not require any special efforts on the part of the CrestClean team of Salen and Rakeshni Prasad, who use CrestClean’s custom line of environmentally responsible chemicals and are trained in the latest green cleaning procedures. They’ll be able to keep it looking and feeling as clean and hygienic as it did on the first day of school.
