ONCE-OFF CLEANING SERVICES
Since 1991, SP Cleaning Services has been providing once-off cleaning services to a wide range of facilities including: banks, schools, retail outlets, offices and industrial sites.
OUR SKILLED TEAMS & SPECIALISED EQUIPMENT MAKE LIGHT WORK OF:
CARPET & UPHOLSTERY CLEANING
Our carpet and upholstery cleaning is carried out using the hot water spray extraction method – often referred to as steam-cleaning. Fabrics are first treated with a spot removal agent to loosen visible spots and marks, then steam-cleaned to remove dirt and residue from deep within the pile. Lastly, high powered air movers are used to speed up the drying process.
CURTAIN & BLIND CLEANING
Commercial curtains and blinds are uplifted by us, cleaned off site and then returned and reinstalled at your premises. We have a quick turnaround time, and in some instances can even offer loan units (blinds only) while yours are being cleaned – especially useful for boardrooms and other high privacy areas.
As standard, our service includes repair or replacement of hardware such as curtain tracks, blind tracks, missing beads, pulleys, etc. We are also able to replace individual missing or damaged slats for blinds and can even supply completely new curtains and blinds for your offices.
POST-FLOOD WATER EXTRACTION
Following a flood – whether as a result of natural causes or from a burst water pipe or geyser – it is important to remove water from floor surfaces as quickly as possible, to limit or prevent damage to fittings and finishes. In such instances, we first make use of powerful industrial vacuum cleaners and pumps to evacuate flood water and then clean the floor surface using the appropriate method depending on the specific floor type. In the case of carpets, for example, if an underfelt is present, we will lift the carpet and remove the wet underfelt, then steam-clean and dry the carpet. Odour control agents are applied to ensure that the carpet smells fresh.
MACHINE SCRUBBING OF CERAMIC, PORCELAIN, CONCRETE & OTHER HARD FLOORS
Ingrained dirt and grime can leave expensive floor tiles looking particularly shabby. In fact people often don’t realise just how dirty these floor finishes actually are, until they’ve been scrubbed. Just because a floor is mopped daily doesn’t necessarily mean it’s clean. Mopping alone spreads grime and makes a floor uniformly dirty. Our industrial scrubbing machines – upright for smaller areas, and large automatic machines for bigger areas – thoroughly clean hard floors and remove all contaminants using environmentally friendly cleaning chemicals.
CLEANING & SEALING OF SLATE, TERRACOTTA & OTHER NATURAL STONE FLOOR SURFACES
Natural stone floors require expert cleaning and proper protection to look their best. And we are experts in this field. First we thoroughly clean the floor to remove ingrained dirt and old sealants. Then we apply several coats of the appropriate floor sealant. Our sealants are SABS approved and slip-resistant. Different finishes are available, ranging from matte to high gloss, depending on the desired effect.
FLOOR CARE & MAINTENANCE – INCLUDING APPLICATION OF PROTECTIVE SEALANTS
Vinyl floor coverings – popular in schools and hospitals, in the form of either sheeting or tiles – require regular scrubbing and sealing. We are equipped to provide this service using either upright or automatic scrubbing machines. Following scrubbing, which removes dirt and old sealants, we seal the floors using several coats of SABS approved slip-resistant, high-gloss sealant. Sealing vinyl, and other resilient floor coverings, serves not only to greatly enhance the appearance of the floor, but also to protect the floor from scratches and other damage caused by mechanical and foot traffic.
DEEP CLEANING OF KITCHENS & ABLUTIONS
Factory and workshop ablution blocks are often overlooked by facilities managers when it comes to cleanliness. Your staff deserves clean facilities – and we can help. Regular deep cleaning of all fittings and finishes serves to clean and disinfect, thus keeping germs at bay. And no germs means fewer sick employees and less sick leave. It is generally recommended that a deep clean of ablutions should be done at least once every three months.
We expertly clean and disinfect commercial kitchens from top to bottom using approved cleaning chemicals and materials. From overhead extractor units to stainless steel catering equipment to below-ground grease traps; and absolutely everything in between. This service should also be done at least once every three months.
WINDOW & HIGH ACCESS CLEANING
Window cleaning is carried out by our trained teams who are properly equipped to deal with working at height. We comply with all safety regulations in this regard and can provide compliance and competence certificates on request.
High access cleaning includes cleaning of steel warehouse structures, high bay lights, ceilings, walls, signage including billboards, gutters and roofs, etc.
CEILING CLEANING & RESTORATION
Acoustic and vinyl ceiling tiles become uniformly soiled over time from airborne dust and dirt particles. This results in a gradual deterioration in the appearance of the ceiling and a deterioration in the sound absorption potential of the tiles. We are able to clean the ceiling tiles, ceiling grid and any fittings with very little disruption and, in most cases, without the need to clear any furniture from a room. Ground sheets are carefully placed over the floors and all furniture and office equipment, and the ceilings are chemically cleaned using our specialised machinery.
Major banks intent on giving their customers the best possible experience when using the institution’s off-site ATMs (Automated Teller Machines) have made use of our services for many years. This service includes cleaning of the approach and immediate ATM surrounds, cleaning and disinfecting of the ATM itself, cleaning of signage at and around the ATM, and removal of graffiti and posters from the site.
Our service also includes a detailed reporting service to alert the bank of any damage to the ATM itself or any part of the ATM installation.
POST-CONSTRUCTION, PRE-OCCUPATION AND SPRING CLEANING
Post-construction cleaning is a specialised discipline that demands strict supervision and time management. We are equipped to clean up premises for architects, construction companies, shopfitters, property managers, etc. following construction work and prior to handover. We have a wealth of experience in this field and are able to work to the tight time constraints normally associated with the final days of a major construction project. We pride ourselves on our attention to detail and our ability to help property developers impress their clients with a spotless building – in fact, a polished jewel of a property – at handover.
Our pre-occupation cleaning service involves detailed cleanups of offices for the new occupants. The service generally includes machine scrubbing of floors, steam-cleaning of carpets, cleaning of windows, dusting and wiping of all fittings and finishes, etc.
Our spring cleaning service is great for anyone wanting to brighten up their office with a thorough clean from top to bottom. And the best part is that you don’t have to wait till spring to do it – we’re on call no matter what the season.
GARDEN CLEANUPS AND MAINTENANCE
Our standard garden maintenance includes mowing of lawns and trimming of edges, trimming and shaping of shrubs and climbers when required, weeding and digging over of flowerbeds, sweeping of paths and paved areas, clearing of leaves, etc. These services are provided either as part of our contract cleaning operations or as a once-off.
