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.
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.
