School & Educational Facilities Cleaning

Providing the best possible student learning environment is a goal that we strive to achieve in collaboration with our clients.

Specialised, high traffic areas such as day-care and pre-school centres, primary and secondary schools and tertiary education facilities have specific requirements that are delivered through managed processes, procedures and high attention to detail. As specialised commercial cleaners, Zippy ensures that the highest standards of hygiene and cleanliness are maintained, which is reflected through the commercial cleaning services we provide.

Chemical Free Cleaning

As the first South Australian cleaning company to achieve GECA Accreditation*, Zippy are proud to be able to offer educational facilities the opportunity to improve the health of students and staff through our innovative chemical-free commercial 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.

By using this system, we can create a safe and healthy environment for all students and staff, even those with allergies and chemical sensitivities.

School Cleaning


Our experience in school cleaning contracts, which spans over 30 years, has enabled us to determine and understand what is really important to our clients in education and it is evidently clear that security and safety is paramount in these environments.

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 but furthermore, all cleaning staff employed to work on school cleaning contracts must also obtain a Working With Children Clearance as well.

Should our clients require our staff to obtain or hold any other special clearance – for example Catholic Schools Clearance – we are also able to make this an employment requirement of staff employed for that site.

School Holiday Cleaning

At Zippy, we understand that there may be certain restrictions around cleaning times on school cleaning contracts and therefore we are able to schedule and manage cleaning services in school holidays to ensure that students and staff are able to return to clean and hygienic facilities following their break.

Services that may be required to be completed outside of the school term are those that may require furniture to be moved or extended time to complete, including:

  • Carpet Cleaning (encapsulation, very low moisture, and hot water extraction)
  • Strip & Seal of vinyl floors
  • Window and glass cleaning (including at heights)
  • Locker cleaning
  • External furniture cleaning
  • Cleaning of specialised areas such as gymnasiums, art centre, laboratories and workshops
  • Deep cleaning of bathroom and toilet facilities

Our dedicated Client Services Managers are available to schedule and manage any services required during school holidays to avoid any disruption to staff and students.

*GECA Accreditation restricted to SA only.

We tailor our commercial cleaning services to a variety of industries across South Australia and the Northern Territory; including federal, state and local Government departments, health centres and aged care facilities, education facilities, corporate office buildings, and commercial properties, both big and small.
