Green Cleaning

Eco-friendly cleaning service

In response to the ever-increasing number of environmentally conscious workplaces and organisations who are beginning to question how the cleaning of their facilities affects the environment, Cleanworks is pleased to offer an industry-leading Green Cleaning service.

Combining the use of environmentally-friendly cleaning products with waste reduction strategies, our Green Cleaning service is perfect for organisations seeking to limit their eco-impact without compromising on hygiene or presentation standards.

Certified, non-toxic cleaning agents

We use specially formulated Smart Green Chemicals which are safe for both humans and the environment, yet still fully capable of destroying harmful, disease-carrying bacteria and other micro-organisms. All of these non-toxic cleaning compounds carry independent certification from Good Environmental Choice Australia (GECA) – a not-for-profit organisation which is committed to helping consumers make smart choices for themselves and the environment. The GECA ecolabel is highly respected and recognised by the Green Building Council of Australia.

Easy on the environment, but not on bacteria

While we do not use the DIY green cleaners you’ve likely read about such as lemon juice and bicarb soda, the green cleaners we use are every bit as eco-friendly while allowing us to closely monitor the dose of bio-enzymes being used to maintain a safe, consistent standard of hygiene and sanitation.

Bio-enzymes are compounds which break down proteins, an integral structure in bacteria. The enzymes react with the bacterial proteins and wipe them out. As proteins are also a common cause of stains and odours, enzymes make an efficient cleaning solution. We use bio-enzymes in many of our services, including hygiene cleaning.

Not just what, but how

Unlike many other cleaning companies, Cleanworks doesn’t simply treat green cleaning compounds as a direct swap for traditional cleaning agents. Each cleaning solution requires a specific cleaning method to ensure that the maximum effect is achieved using the minimal amount of cleaner. We strategically plan how we will clean each site before beginning, and ensure that all requirements from the client and authorities are met. Every activity and service we offer complies with local and national regulations.

Waste reduction

Cleanworks works with clients to help identify opportunities and implement strategies which will help reduce the cleaning and non-cleaning waste generation which occurs at their site. We also work closely with local councils to maximise recycling opportunities in the most cost-effective way possible. And of course, can help sourcing recycled office supplies and hygiene products.
