Researching, evaluating and vetting a new commercial cleaning contractor is a time-consuming process that business managers prefer to undertake as infrequently as possible. To make your decision easier, here are 4 reasons to choose EcoPro.
Our high quality cleaning services, using only non-toxic, environmentally certified cleaning products, results in more hygienic surfaces, fewer germs and fewer allergies, which can mean fewer staff sick days.
As pioneers of green commercial cleaning in New Zealand, for over 45 years we’ve focussed our Auckland cleaning services on improving the quality of the air and hygiene of surfaces in our clients’ offices, helping minimise allergic reactions and sick days.
All our Auckland commercial cleaners are trained in environmentally friendly processes and use chemicals scientifically proven to be biodegradable with absolutely no volatile organic compounds. We offer existing clients a free green cleaning assessment to determine where other factors can be addressed to improve the overall ‘health’ of your work environment.
Most businesses save money by choosing EcoPro as their commercial cleaner. By implementing some easy green cleaning principles we help businesses cut their plastic bag consumption by as much as 79% and waste to landfill by 75%.
Not only does this save costs, but we have found that staff became highly engaged in the whole process. At HRV, staff initiated an in-house swear box-type ‘fine’ system for anyone caught putting the waste in the wrong bin.
With big leaps in waste management levies for business on the horizon, it makes financial sense to improve recycling techniques and minimise waste to landfill before those costs increase significantly.
If your business would like to minimise waste and reduce plastic consumables, find out how we’ve been able to cut costs for other Auckland businesses.
We have an established reputation as a commercial cleaning company that pays particular attention to detail. Every EcoPro commercial cleaning team manager is responsible for meeting our 59-point Quality Assurance checklist – our commitment to monitoring and maintaining our own performance.
To ensure this is benchmarked against international standards, Environmental Choice NZ independently assessed our processes, products and equipment.
We guarantee to our customers the following:
Call us fanatical but we’ve earned it!
Commercial cleaning is a very undervalued industry, and unfortunately there are some unscrupulous operators. Many cleaners are new to our country and are taken advantage of because of that. EcoPro strives to be different, to treat our guys with respect and fair rates of pay.
Most of our Auckland commercial cleaners are business owners in their own right, so we help them grow their business or we help set them up in business. Unlike the typical commercial cleaning franchise model, our cleaners have much more say in their businesses and what they purchase (and from whom). This means we are able to pay them a bigger slice of the pie. (Sound good? Find out more about our commercial cleaning jobs!)
We pay our teams fairly for every project, ensuring our sub-contractors are able to receive the equivalent of a living wage. This is necessary for self-respect and self-esteem – and you receive a higher standard of cleaning as a result. 20% of our cleaning teams have been with us for more than 10 years, and three of them since the 1990s!
We have on average 30 contracting teams, with a great deal of ethnic diversity. We’ve developed really clear, one-to-one, on-site training on sustainable cleaning systems, and offer benefits like days off for holidays and festivals that aren’t recognised as statutory holidays in New Zealand. A few years ago, the Ministry of Social Development asked us to participate in a study, and wrote up our approach into a case study.
We are constantly evolving our procedures to be one of Auckland’s best office cleaning companies. We make bold claims about our green cleaning services, and we’ve put a lot of time into getting third party accreditation. We’re the only cleaning company licensed by Environmental Choice NZ.
