Providing the best possible resident experience is a goal that we strive to achieve in collaboration with our clients. We understand that health and aged care facilities have specific requirements and we can confidently deliver these through our managed processes, procedures and attention to detail. Our clients can rest assured that the highest standards in hygiene control and cleanliness are provided in accordance with the guidelines of the Department for Health and Ageing, Cleaning Standards for Healthcare Facilities.
Chemical Free Cleaning
As the first South Australian cleaning company to achieve GECA Accreditation*, Zippy are proud to be able to offer Aged Care facilities the opportunity to improve the health of residents and staff through our innovative chemical free cleaning options.
This is achieved through the use of Stabilised Aqueous Ozone technology that transforms regular tap water into a powerful cleaner, stain remover and germ killer. This system produces a cleaning agent that is more powerful than bleach but contains no chemical whatsoever and is safe enough for use on food products.
This impressive system is able to assist in improving air quality readings for particulates, mould and bacteria which is especially important for older residents who most likely have existing health issues. This cleaning agent is so powerful that it kills 99.95% of bacteria being up to 50% stronger than bleach and chlorine-based cleaning products and it works 3000 times faster at eliminating germs and contaminants. By implementing a Stabilised Aqueous Ozone system, we can effectively and safely reduce the risk of germs and bacteria spreading amongst residents.
Together, we can create a safe and healthy environment for all residents, staff and facility visitors.
Security is paramount when providing cleaning services to any facility that stores highly confidential information and it is important to Zippy that our clients feel safe and that all sensitive information remains secure. It is especially important to us that residents in Aged Care facilities feel safe and secure when our cleaning staff are present.
It is a standard requirement of all Zippy staff that they hold a National Police Clearance prior to commencing work on any of our sites. Furthermore, we are able to ensure that our staff hold or obtain any additional clearances that our clients require including Working with Vulnerable Persons clearances.
Our Client Services Managers will also ensure that any specific site inductions are completed by all staff prior to commencing work on site so that all staff are aware of the individual facilities’ security and emergency procedures.
Our internal staff training management systems ensure that all clearances and inductions are up to date.
