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.

CrestClean North Harbour chipped in for a local school hoping to raise funds to upgrade its playground equipment, gardens and shade cover.

Held on the 1st of November at the Gulf Harbour School, the Gala was an inaugural fundraising event for the primary school. Organised by the local PTA, the day included food, drink, live entertainment, raffles and prizes, rides and games, such as Snag Golf, which CrestClean North Harbour hired. Tickets were sold to play the game and all proceeds went to the school.

“Even though the school is not one of our clients, they are in our community,” says Neil Kumar, Regional Director for CrestClean North Harbour. “We believe it’s important to help out a neighbour. That is what being in a community is all about.”

Several other local businesses also contributed funds and prizes for the charity auction, run by Ray White Manly. Overall, the Gala event raised over $20,000 for the school.

“This really helps many local kids,” says Neil. “We’re glad to have been able to help the school succeed in their fundraising effort.”

Hard Floor Care was incredibly popular in 2014, resulting in the creation of 19 new Hard Floor Care Trainers.

Hard Floor Care was incredibly popular in 2014, resulting in the creation of 19 new Hard Floor Care Trainers.

The number of CrestClean personnel trained at Master Cleaners Training Institute increased by more than 40 percent in 2014.

“This is just part of growth as we see it and we intend to proceed along the same growth path next year,” says Adam Hodge, CEO of Master Cleaners Training Institute.

The following numbers are not exact, as some events are still occurring, but the increase over 2013 figures shows that the training programmes on offer are popular among Crest franchisees. It also indicates that more franchisees are taking time to invest in learning specialist skills, such as Hard Floor Care and Pure Water Window Cleaning.

“We’re now doubling the number of Regional Trainers and Assessors in order to meet the growing business demand,” says Adam. “And we have introduced 19 new positions for Hard Floor Care Trainers.”

That’s almost one for each region where Crest operates. View More >>
