It is said that first impressions count and in my experience this is certainly very true. If the client car park at your work premises is looking tired and unloved it may well give the wrong impression about your business.


At Gemini Facilty Services we offer a full range of external cleaning services that include the following:

 

  • Litter Picking
  • Car Park Sweeping
  • Weed Removal
  • High Pressure Washing
  • Graffiti Removal 
  • High Level Cleaning of Windows, Cladding & Signage
  • Chewing Gum Removal
  • Waste Removal

We can undertake one-off  and regular cleaning services that suit both your requirements and budget. All work can be undertaken out of trading hours to avoid causing unnecessary inconvenience to you or your clients. If these services are of interest to you, please contact us for more details.


 

Commercial Carpet Cleaning

Over the weekend we undertook an out of hours clean of the carpets throughout a shopping arcade in Gympie. We used bonnet pads in tandem with a carpet shampoo with encapsulating technology and fabric protector, specially developed to provide very satisfactory cleaning performance, particularly on greasy and heavily stained carpets.

Office Cleaning

Posted on 16 April, 2018 at 22:50 Comments comments (0)

Millions of working days are lost due to self-reported illness every year in the Australia. Yes, there are lots of different health conditions which can affect employees. And yes, there are plenty of “sickies” pulled after heavy nights. But many of these absences will have been caused by contagious coughs, colds, sniffles, flus and stomach bugs which were picked up in the workplace itself.

Working in close contact with lots of different people exposes us to all sorts of germs every day. Most of these will be harmless, but every now and again your colleague will have been close to someone poorly on the train, or your office manager’s daughter will have picked up a nasty cold at school. Before you know it, your entire office are going down like flies…

We all know that hand washing is one of the very best ways to avoid picking up and passing on germs. Equipping employees with hand sanitiser, placing antibacterial soap by all sinks and encouraging regular hand washing will make a big difference to reducing germs and nasties in your workplace, but there are other places germs loiter and linger in office spaces – just waiting to take down your team…

Here are three of the worst offenders: 

1) Telephones

When the phone rings, you answer it – there’s no time to think about hand washing. This makes office phones one of the most widely handled pieces of communal equipment in your workplace. Regularly cleaning handsets with an antibacterial wipe will help you avoid transferring germs via your office phones. 

2) Keyboards

In most workplaces, employees stick to their own keyboard but in more flexible spaces, shared keyboards can accrue lots of nasty germs. That’s because they’re in contact with our hands almost all day; immediately after we’ve taken the morning commute, when we’re eating our lunch – you name it. Just take a peek at your keyboard, if it’s completely fluff and crumb free – we’ll eat our hats.

A regular antibacterial wipe down will help get rid of any germs loitering in your keyboard, but a monthly clean out of this piece of kit will make the world of difference. It’ll help your workplace look more professional too.

Read our step-by-step guide on how to clean a computer keyboard (properly) to learn more and take care of yours now. Using a laptop instead? We’ve got you covered – we’ve written a guide for cleaning laptop keyboards, too.

3) Chair arms

You may not have considered just how often your hands come into contact with chair arms – especially those found on shared pieces of furniture. From meetings to lunch breaks, these seemingly innocuous office essentials can come into contact with all manner of germs over the course of just one day, making a regular wipe down very important part of tackling workplace germs.

Regular, thorough cleaning services are one of the best ways to minimise germs in your office space. Talk to a company that truly understands “clean” to discuss your cleaning requirements. Contact us today on 0432 539 502 or email [email protected] to plan your cleaning schedule.

Electrical Safety

Posted on 30 January, 2018 at 20:35 Comments comments (0)


Regular scheduled Testing and Tagging our electrical equipment is a key part of our risk management plan:

In almost all of our workplaces we use a wide variety of electrical equipment, whether it is a vacuum cleaner, a charger lead for an auto scrubber or the kettle in the office, we want the peace of mind that comes with knowing the equipment that we use is safe! Not only are we keeping our workforce safe, but we are prolonging the life of valuable and often expensive appliances and equipment. We also assure compliance with important government business safety regulations.

Here are four excellent reasons why testing and tagging our electrical equipment is at the top of our safety to-do list.

1. Help to identify potential electrical hazards
2. Stay up-to-date with our Safety Plan
3. Manage replacements efficiently
4. Ensure personal and equipment safety

Testing and tagging go hand in hand as the best way to make sure that our work sites are safe for everyone. It also helps us to identify any issues with equipment which then can be either resolved or removed early on.

Medical Centre Cleaning

Posted on 22 January, 2018 at 21:10 Comments comments (0)

What Does a Medical Centre Cleaning Service Cover?

Our medical centre cleaning service is tailored around the specific needs and requirements of our clients, with specialist cleaning provisions available too. A standard service will cover the following:


Reception

Waiting rooms

Toilet and washrooms

Offices

Treatment rooms

Windows and doors


Medical Centres:

If you own or run a medical centre then hygiene must be at the top of your housekeeping priority list. Prevention is just as good, if not better, than the cure; so it is extremely important to keep surfaces clean and free of harmful bacteria and infections such as MRSA.

 

Dental Practices:

We at Gemini Facility Services have extensive experience dealing with high-tech equipment and controlling cross contamination in dental practices. It is important to maintain a bright and friendly atmosphere for your patients and provide a spotless dental practice for them to feel comfortable frequenting.

 

Veterinary Practises:

Bringing together a collection of sick animals to one place significantly increases the chances of cross infection and disease spreading. As a vet you will understand the importance of an effective disinfection regime and preventing the spread of micro-organisms. Our highly qualified team will create and maintain a clean and safe environment for both your staff members and your little furry friends.

No Worries!

Posted on 19 December, 2017 at 19:35 Comments comments (0)

During a recent meeting with a potential client, I was told the following: 


"I do not have the time to worry about the cleaning, I just need a contractor, who has the checks and systems in place to manage their staff and the work that they are carrying out on our premises. If they can’t do that I may as well hire a cleaner directly and do it in house"


So many companies, seem to treat their clients as if they are just providing cleaning labour and not a service. Do little or nothing to ensure staff are onsite, on-time, complete the work correctly, as scheduled and as requested, to the standard the clients requires.


We at Gemini Facility Services carefully select and then train our staff before they enter the workplace. Training is then on-going for all staff to ensure that we continue to deliver a first class yet affordable service to our clients. We have developed daily cleaning check sheets for our staff and we also undertake regular audits of the cleaning.

 

If you are looking to engage a contractor or sub-contractor to clean your property but do not need the worries, please call us on 0432 539 502 or email [email protected]
