Ronesh Nand accepting his Cleaning Professional Skills Suite Certificate from Regional Director Yasa Panagoda.
Congratulations to Ronesh Nand for successfully completing the Cleaning Professional Skills Suite training, a series of three courses offered by Master Cleaners Training Institute that cover all aspects of safe working practices, equipment, proper procedures and innovations in the cleaning industry.
Originally from Fiji, Ronesh and his wife Joytesha moved to Christchurch and purchased a CrestClean franchise approximately two years ago. Like all CrestClean franchisees, they’re required to undergo professional training, which begins with three weeks of on-site induction training and progresses to the more in-depth practical skills in the three Modules of the Cleaning Professional Skills Suite. Last year, over 700 CrestClean franchisees attended some form of training with Master Cleaners Training Institute, which is accredited by the British Institute of Cleaning Sciences.
“Training is important because it prepares franchisees for meeting their customers’ demands for high quality cleaning,” says Adam Hodge, CEO of Master Cleaners Training Institute. “Quality training ensures consistency and safeguards CrestClean’s reputation, which helps all franchisees retain customers and continue to grow their businesses. It really benefits everybody and raises the standards for our entire industry.”
Congratulations to Ronesh – and all CrestClean franchisees – who have successfully completed their training!

Appearances are everything when it comes to operating a cleaning business, which is why Nouman Qureshi has made a special effort with his CrestClean van. He’s installed a custom-built storage rack, which keeps his Crest chemicals organised and upright and makes more space for his new carpet cleaning machine, preparing him to take the next step with his business.
“It makes his van look so organised and professional,” says Hawkes Bay Regional Director Abby Latu, who came across his customised solution during a routine van audit, which are performed biannually to ensure all CrestClean franchisees are maintaining top standards with their vehicles and equipment. “It’s really fantastic. The friend who made the storage rack for him works at the Hastings RSA, which is one of our clients, and we may look at offering them for sale to other franchisees.”
Nouman has been operating a CrestClean franchise since April, with $100,000 in turnover, including contracts at a local college, a gym, and the RSA buildings in Napier and Hastings. He recently decided to make the significant investment in training and equipment to become a carpet cleaning technician for CrestClean, enabling him to offer a specialist service that’s in high demand in the Hawkes Bay region.

Attending the Hawkes Bay Primary Principals’ Conference for a second year in a row resulted in even greater benefits for CrestClean, says Regional Director Abby Latu.
Held over three days in August at the Wairakei Resort Taupo, the conference draws representatives from over 60 schools. CrestClean is a Bronze level Business Partner of HBPPA and has been involved in the conference for two years.
“It was great last year and it was even better this year, as people recognised me and remembered me from the year before and in a place like Hawkes Bay, it’s all about who you know and who you trust,” says Abby. “The president of the HBPPA is the principal of one of the schools we clean and he sings our praises and is a great advocate for us.”
CrestClean was one of 16 exhibitors and had a new, updated School Roll Banner, which now lists 262 schools cleaned by Crest, as a backdrop for the exhibition table. Abby was joined by CrestClean’s National Sales Manager Chris Barker, who helped give out information about cleaning services, samples of Crest products, and encouraged people to enter a draw to win a new 37-inch TV.
