Quayclean draws on experience to assist safe and complete cleaning during COVID-19
Australian-owned cleaning and presentation company, Quayclean Australia is drawing on its experience from the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games to manage and clean facilities and assist customers during the current COVID-19 pandemic.
Quayclean was responsible for cleaning and presentation services for event venues at the Gold Coast Games when there were a number of Norovirus (gastro) outbreaks among athletes and officials.
Quayclean Chief Executive, Mark Piwkowski, said his team are well equipped to manage the safe and complete cleaning of the sites it manages and protect attendees from COVID-19.
Piwkowski advised “we have successfully completed disinfection cleans for suspected and confirmed cases of COVID-19 at venues, educational facilities, commercial operators and health care operators across Australia.
“Work has been completed at private schools, aquatic facilities and public venues on the same day of the suspected infection.
“We treat suspected and confirmed cases the same way and follow guidelines provided by the Australian Health Authority and World Health Organisation.”
All Quayclean offices and major contract locations have been supplied with a specifically designed COVID-19 Personal Protective Equipment Response Kit which includes disposable overalls, face masks, gloves and goggles.
Piwkowski added “the kits are designed to protect our team in case of suspected and confirmed cases of COVID-19 and only used by teams trained to focus on suspected or actual outbreaks.”
Quayclean staff are focusing their effort on regular, more routine cleaning of ‘touch points’ with disinfectant and sanitiser with Piwkowski explaining “our staff are currently directing their energies towards extra emphasis on sanitising and disinfecting areas such as wiping door plates, handles, waste bins and taps to support necessary preventative maintenance cleaning measures.”
Quayclean has increased cleaning support for many clients particularly educational, leisure, healthcare and commercial accounts with Piwkowski highlighting that “many customers have requested additional labour for more consistent rotational cleaning, but this is a decision for each site.
“Whilst the additional rotational cleaning will assist sanitisation, there is no better solution than ensuring for personnel hygiene, self-isolating if you are unwell, and following the guidelines provided by the Australian Health Authority and World Health Organisation.
“Customers have requested additional labour to ensure that rotational sanitising is maintained at a higher level. We are working with clients to identify all areas that have the highest possibility of becoming infected.”
