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.

Sam Lewis, Wendy Carey, and Nick Dunne from CrestClean’s Dunedin office, accepting the Deloitte Fast 50 ‘Sustained Growth Award’ in the Otago and Lower South Island region.

CrestClean has won a Sustained Growth Award from Deloitte Fast 50, an annual index ranking the top 50 businesses in New Zealand according to their revenue growth over the past three years.

It was presented during the Otago and Lower South Island regional award ceremony on 1 October, and accepted by a team from CrestClean’s Admin Services office in Dunedin – Sam Lewis, Wendy Carey and Nick Dunne.

CrestClean has been previously recognised five times in the Deloitte Fast 50, most recently as the ‘Fastest Growing Mature Business – Otago and Lower South Island’ in the 2012 awards.

Deloitte’s Tom Hannagan says CrestClean was selected for this award because of the company’s continued success at a regional level, with criteria for recognition including “continued and sustained growth year-on-year, a strong history with the Fast 50 competition, a strong presence in the local market place (both in terms of Crest’s profile and continued investment in Dunedin), Crest’s international expansion and impressive growth in this year’s competition given Crest’s size.” View More >>

Shanta and Reddy Devi outside Right House’s Seaview facility, which they’ve kept clean to the highest standards.

A positive customer experience is always a pleasure for any business owner to experience, and both CrestClean and Right House have great things to say about franchisees Reddy and Shanta Devi.

Right House provides energy efficiency and heating services and upgrades for new and older homes throughout the Wellington region. The head office in Seaview has been cleaned by Shanta and Reddy Devi since November of 2013.

“Reddy has been great to deal with. He is polite and enthusiastic,” writes Karen Yee, Office Manager of Right House. “Anything that I have requested of him has never been too much trouble. I highly recommend Reddy as a cleaner and Crest Cleaning to any potential client.”

Hutt Valley Regional Director, Clare Menzies, also shares some good words about one of her most accomplished team members.

“Reddy is a long serving franchisee, who was originally one of the first in the Wellington region, but he’s really built a good reputation within the Hutt Valley,” says Clare. “He gets excellent feedback from clients and is a very positive member of the team.”

Keep up the great work, Reddy and Shanta!

In Tauranga, all the franchisees new to CrestClean in the past four months are now also fully trained in Hard Floor Care.

“I tell all my franchisees they need this skill if they’re going to be doing any sort of floor care,” says Jan Lichtwark, Regional Director for Tauranga. “Some say that none of their jobs are going to need buffing, but it pays to know.”

Seven franchisees – Woo Sung Lee, Yeon Kil Yang, Anuragni Chandra, Sanjeet Chandra, Anna Susanti, Edward Santosa, and Richard Kemm – attended the two-day training course, which was held at Te Puke High School and taught by Pinakin Patel, a Tauranga franchisee and Hard Floor Trainer.

Jan says Hard Floor Care is “a big part of the business” for his region, so having several new franchisees who are skilled at doing it benefits them all. View More >>
