Keen to Clean ISO Certified Company

The Keen to Clean Group is leading its management revolution by also having the company ISO certified in not just one but three categories through DAS Certification. The certifications come as the group continues to expand and reach new targets, assuring that the system backing it up is as good as it can be and continues to grow ISO certification is an important business acknowledgement as it is a thorough audit of the documentation, practices and goals of the business on multiple business fronts. Only businesses that have contingencies, follow legal and protocol obligations and allow for accommodation of new ones later can hope to pass, and to achieve three simultaneously is unusual. The categories were ISO – 9001 – 2015 (Quality), ISO 14001 – 2015 (Environmental), and ISO 18001 – 2007 (OHS&S), the three integral pillars of the Keen to Clean Group brand’s success. CEO Rohit Chand was excited to have the certifications approved after months of preparations. “In business it is all good and well to talk about what you do and how you manage; it is only through objective outside analysis that we can say that we are really doing the right thing.” “With these certifications we are showing there is a sound and professional backend to our services and we know that will lead to bigger and better things going forward.”        ...

GYM Cleaning Boxhill

GYM Cleaning Boxhill – Service Provider Keen to Clean Location: Box Hill, 24 hour gym with around 60 to 100 regular visitors a day Problem: Despite regular cleaning a gym noticed multiple areas were slowly building up problems. Gyms involve a lot of moving around, lots of foot traffic and equipment that doesn’t get much opportunity to shake off dust. In other words, it is a place that needs a lot of ongoing care otherwise it will very quickly become unbearably smelly and unhygienic. But when we met this gym they noted that despite being happy with the general cleaning being provided they still felt the gym was getting worse and worse and didn’t know what to do. Solution: Assessing the cleaning we came to several conclusions of ways we could help the gym get back on track. The first is to acknowledge that day to day cleaning will never truly be enough to keep the gym 100%. It is integral to get a more focused and thorough detail clean at least once a month. This involves a lot of smaller jobs that might not necessarily benefit from being done every single day, like full dusting of under equipment or heavy grout scrubbing. The second is that often deeper cleaning of many of the standard items will be necessary. The most obvious is periodic steam cleaning of carpeted areas, which is usually the reception and office spaces. Buffing of rubber mats periodically will help assure that any buildups are removed before they start smelling or damaging the surface. For hard floors, like basketball courts, we can do buffing or strip...

Medical Center Cleaning Hastings

Medical Center Cleaning Hastings – Service Provider Keen to Clean Location: Hastings, around 200 patients a day Problem: Regular cleaning was occurring at the practice and the staff was happy with the results. However, patients started reporting bad smells from the waiting room. This smell would be overwhelming during the day but would be almost completely absent by the time the practice was closed up. Inspection at the start of the day by the staff and at the end of the day by the cleaners couldn’t identify any meaningful source of such a smell but as a concern despite that. As the complaints started to get more frequent something had to be done. Solution: The first step was identifying why the smell was appearing at all. Every night as part of the cleaning service the carpets, upholstery and surfaces all got deodorised and sanitised. In the morning staff would inspect the area while preparing for the day and would consistently report the area smelled and looked fine. Despite that by lunch the smell would start to spread and intensify. Often it would overpower even the air fresheners and spray deodorisers the staff employed. At the end of the day though the smell was barely detectable. The answer was under everyone’s noses all along: the upholstery. Although the upholstery received regular surface deodorising and vacuuming, removing dirt and keeping it relatively fresh, it had not received a deep cleaning in some time. Trapped smells and bacteria meant that bad smells built up in the cushions and were blown out into the room anytime someone sat down. This was the primary...

Child Care Cleaning Richmond

Child Care Cleaning Richmond – Service Provider Keen to Clean Location: Child Care Center in Richmond, around 90 regular attendees across all sessions. Problem: Even with regular vacuuming, the carpets started to smell. Regular vacuuming is an important part of keeping a Child Care Clean. If you aren’t vacuuming every day, or at least every other day, dust and dirt will quickly build up and that can have a big impact on the health and comfort of young children. But even with regular vacuuming this center found that the carpets were looking worn down and developing a smell. Solution: In reality, for any carpet regular vacuuming is only part of the overall required maintenance. The other half is regular Steam Cleaning. Most carpet producers suggest yearly steam cleaning for domestic properties, as it is the only system that offers a deep clean that will remove all germ and smell buildups. Areas with high traffic like offices and schools, or areas that are prone to getting dirty or soiled frequently like retirement homes and restaurants, require much more frequent deep cleaning that only steam cleaning can offer. A Child Care Center is a combination of both high traffic and high soiling factor so it particularly needs to be done often. Organizing at least quarterly deep cleaning helped assure that no smells built up. The job could be scheduled during breaks or overnight and still be dry for the children the next day.

Gym Cleaning Fitzroy

GYM Cleaning Fitzroy- Service Provider Keen to Clean Location: Fitzroy, 24 hour gym with around 80 regular visitors daily Problem: Everything looked clean and surfaces lacked any obvious dirt or buildups, yet the gym was developing a very strong and unpleasant smell even right after a clean. Due to the nature of exercise and the stench most people generate when they sweat a lot of gyms don’t smell great. This is particularly true during heavily active hours when lots of people are exercising. One of the main functions of regular cleaning at a gym is to help combat this. Good regular cleaning should mean that the smell is reduced significantly. But as we entered this gym to offer them a quote for cleaning one quiet weekday morning we were immediately hit by a very unusual and prominent smell, one we had not had the displeasure of dealing with before… Solution: Superficially the gym was quite well kept. Surfaces looked clean, windows were nice and crisp and even less obvious places didn’t seem to have a buildup of dust. Their cleaners were obviously thorough, at least in terms of removing dirt. We had to dig a little deeper to discover what the real culprit was: the cleaning products. Sweat attracts a lot bacteria, which in turn creates body odour. This carries over to any surfaces it touches and, significantly, can combine with dirt to form buildups which are one of the more prominent sources of bad smells in gyms. Logically that means a focus on removing buildups is functional, as it will help avoid smell buildups and has the most visual...

Child Care Cleaning Bentleigh

Child Care Cleaning Bentleigh – Service Provider Keen to Clean Location: Child Care Centre in Bentleigh, around 90 regular attendees across all sessions with 23 staff. Problem: Despite regular cleaning, illness seemed to be spreading at an unreasonable rate. Regular cleaning and sanitisation of common contact areas is integral for Child Care Centres, particularly during winter where germ spread is higher than ever. Generally with regular cleaning you can help reduce the rapid spread of illness to a degree, but despite regular attendance one centre found that outbreak was not abated at all. With a stable of around 90 children attending, nearly half of them at any given time were ill and the cycle seemed to be impossible to break as they passed it on and around. Solution: Assessing the cleaning and what was covered, it was soon determined the real culprit was actually one of the most obvious things you would associate with a kid: the toys in the communal play area. Because all the children interacted with them, germs spread fast. To combat this toys were incorporated into the cleaning schedule, but it of course left the question of the best approach. Strong antibacterial agents often left strong smells that young children are sensitive to, and if the chemicals are too harsh it may affect the toys or finish of the surfaces and paints. Too much water could damage electronics and get into joints, so traditional sponge approaches were a risk. In the end wet wipes with sanitisation elements were deemed a good balance. They allowed for quick but thorough wipe overs of the toys, helped remove...
