Amenities Cleaning Brisbane and South East Queensland
We can help your business put its best foot forward
Your clients and team members will judge the professionalism of your business by the pride you take in the maintenance of your facilities. This particularly includes your toilets, urinals, sinks, showers, mirrors and floors.
Sparkling clean and well-stocked amenities will give people confidence in your company. Unclean and unmaintained amenities will undo all the hard work you’ve put into giving the best impression possible.
Dirty and disorganised amenities tell others that you don’t value them. People who use amenities they perceive to be unmaintained are very likely to go on to tell others. There’s no denying that everyone remembers an unhygienic bathroom experience.
This is why it’s so important to invest in a thorough and experienced amenities cleaning service. In the long run you’ll save money by improving staff morale, cutting wastage and reducing sick days caused by the spread of germs.
How to get the most value out of your amenities cleaning
Many businesses use refillable dispensers with bulk liquid soap in their amenities. However, when you open these dispensers to top up the soap, you expose the soap to oxygen. Liquid soap starts to degrade once it is exposed to oxygen and will lose its cleaning power, rendering it highly unhygienic and essentially useless.
We recommend using soap dispensers which utilise sealed bags – or “pods” – of liquid soap which empty under vacuum pressure. Using such dispensers means that the soap will never be exposed to oxygen.
While such soaps dispensers are more expensive, you’ll save money in the long run by keeping germs at bay that can make your employees sick. The good news is that we can get you set up by supplying these soap dispensers free of charge…all you need to do is purchase the soap ongoing.
1, 2 or 3 ply toilet paper? It’s a question we get asked about a lot! Here’s our take on it…
If you use 1ply toilet paper in your business to cut costs, you’ll end up paying more in the long run. People are just going to use more of it. Plus, let’s face it, no one likes using 1 ply toilet paper.
In our experience, 3 ply toilet paper is overkill. You actually get less sheets on the roll because it’s thicker. So you’ll use it faster and will need to pay to replace it more often.
2 ply is economical and pleasant to use. Most people can’t tell the different between 2 ply or 3 ply. It’s the “Goldilocks principle” of just right.
Toilet paper is one of the most stolen consumable items from workplaces. It’s right up there with pens, printer paper and staplers.
There’s a simple way to avoid this – install a “jumbo-roll” toilet paper dispenser in your amenities. They are lockable and make it much harder for people to steal the entire roll.
Plus, people tend to use less when pulling sheets off from a jumbo roll, so they are cost-effective too.
Just like with toilet paper, the most economical choice for hand towels is 2ply. If it’s too thin, people will just use more sheets. If you’re looking for ways to save on consumable costs – go with interleafed sheets of hand towels from a wall mounted dispenser.
When hand towels are on a roll, people tend to yank on the roll unnecessarily and pull out more than they really need.
While hand dryers may “pay off” in the long run compared to the ongoing purchasing of hand towels, they are in fact a much less hygienic option.
Old fashioned air dryers are notorious for spreading germs. They essentially just circulate moist, bacteria air around a bathroom.
Higher quality units are the better choice. But most people are unaware that they have HEPA filters that must be cleaned and changed. If they are not being regularly cleaned, they are not hygienic to use.
