Microfibre Mops and Cloths

CrestClean cleaners use high-tech microfibre mops and cloths, which ‘hook’ dirt and reduce the use of chemicals. Our colour-coding system for cloths and mops minimise the risk of cross-contamination.

Contractor Pre-qualification

IMPAC Prequal - Contractor PrequalificationCrestClean maintains Contractor Pre-qualification status with PREQUAL, an independent auditor of the Health and Safety practices of contractors.

Waste Reduction

We actively encourage all our customers to implement recycling systems and to involve their staff in initiatives to minimise waste.

Day Cleaning Service

By cleaning your premises during daylight hours we can help to save money on energy costs. It’s been estimated that day cleaning can save 5 – 12 percent of energy costs compared to night cleaning. Day cleaning may also helps to keep your kitchens and toilets serviced during the hours most used by staff and customers.

CrestClean’s Environmental Choice licensed cleaning services improve hygiene, save energy, and create safer, healthier workplaces with reduced environmental impact.
