Public Facilities Cleaning

Our knowledge of public facilities and the cleaning problems that arise in them spans 20 years.

Nine shires entrust their cleaning to us either partially or completely. The cleaning with these involves many hundreds of public facilities posing some of the biggest cleaning challenges daily that can be served up for a commercial cleaner.

There is really nothing OCE cannot tackle and we like to think that our versatility is one of our greatest assets.

In addition to contracted cleaning services, OCE offers a range of ancillary cleaning and maintenance services. Contact OCE and view the information below to see how we can help you with all your commercial, corporate and industrial cleaning needs.

Microbe Detection Services

OCE is one of the few companies that actually takes swabs on its regular cleaning inspections of schools, factories and offices – in fact any public facility. The swabs change colour when exposed to bacteria and this tells us whether the cleaning is effective especially useful in showers and washrooms. We also have sophisticated hand held equipment from the US which can track and detect certain types of microbe using bio-lumination technology. This includes listeria and E-coli.

Eco Cleaning and ISO 14001

Cleaning with ozone is “beyond green.” Ozone - or O3 - is harmless to the waterways; you can bathe in it (it is used to sanitise Olympic swimming pools) and it is a general maintenance cleaner that can replace almost any cleaning agent. You can use it in the tank of a carpet cleaning machine, in an auto-scrubber, a mop bucket or as a spray wipe or even to squeejee with. But the really magical selling point about O3 is that it obliterates microbes much faster than bleach and with the same effectiveness. A superb germ assassin it is actually attracted to bacteria. O3 is simply O2 with one extra atom and the Tersano ozone machine replicates what happens naturally in the sky when rain and thunder interact by injecting around four thousand of volts into mains tap water and then stabilising the ozone for 24 hours. There is now a machine for smaller sites at much lower cost than the industrial version which opens up a whole new market for its use and application, especially in laboratories and science and domestic blocks in schools. OCE is accredited to ISO 14001 and we have set a target yearly for using more Tersano ozone by the litre produced thus reducing our chemical use very substantially.

Industrial Steam Cleaning

OCE can supply powerful truck mounted equipment which deploys 4000 psi of pressure at near boiling point. This easily cleans up (in fact melts) chewing gum on concrete and dissolves and emulsifies grease, oil and dirt.

This rig can be used to clean large car parks, concrete verandas, parking lots and driveways. It is suitable for large area cleaning with extensive verandas.

The rig is supplied by Pumps Australia and was custom built for our company and is maintained and serviced by them.

A further technical advantage to this rig is its separate steam machine which is useful for melting body fat and grease quickly. This is a mobile unit which can be wheeled off the rig and used indoors. It has application for builders cleans and for sanitising areas where bacteria need to be completely removed such as hospitals and bio hazard areas.
