Unlike other industries, Aged care facilities have two customers; the resident and their families.  Meeting both expectations can be quite a challenge especially when shareholders want a say as well, let alone the DHB. 

Ecotize understand the tensions that exist because of this dynamic and are experts at creating tailored solutions for each individual site.   The number one objective in this sector must be the health of the resident/patient, which is why Ecotize’s ability to sanitise and not just clean put them well above the rest.   While sanitation is of utmost importance, walking into a room that smells of strong disinfectant doesn’t exactly provide the homely feel the residents and their families expect.  Proven and effective chemical-free solutions are what Ecotize are all about.

Their chemical-free endeavours have led them to create excellent cleaning systems that sanitise, don’t leave the carpets wet and help the carpets last loner.

Ecotize are well aware of the challengers that face accommodation premises.  Your property needs to look like new even when it’s 10 years old and yet it gets a tough life with high usage every day.  The number one objective for Ecotize in the Accommodation Sector is to become your Trusted Resource.  The people you call knowing whatever needs to be done, will be done to a high standard, every time, without requiring your constant oversight.

Ecotize can become particularly helpful when isolation or infection control is required.  While your existing staff can easily deal with hard surfaces, professional help is required where soft furnishings can harbour many harmfully pathogens.

Carpet Deep Cleaning and Sanitisation

Extend the life of your carpet & keep your business running.

The Chemical DILEMMA

Most carpet cleaning methods use a lot of water to carry the chemicals to the source of the problem, then even more water to try rinse them back out. This leaves the customer with wet and foul-smelling carpets, which makes for an unpleasant environment.  While cleaning chemicals can break down dirt and grime, the dilemma is always in how to get them to the right spot, and how to remove them afterwards.

Inevitably there is always cleaner left behind, creating a sticky residue that attracts even more dirt. Some carpet machines claim to be using steam, however it is usually just hot water by the time it reaches the floor of your premise.

These levels of moisture simply create an even better environment for bacteria and mould to grow in.  This, combined with the extra dirt being attracted by the cleaner residue means the carpets are just as dirty, if  not worse, within a few weeks of the clean.(sometimes worse) within a few weeks of the clean.

The Super-hot Dry Steam SOLUTION

The Ecotize system revolutionises the way carpets are cleaned and gives results that keep them looking fresh, long after they have been cleaned. Best of all the process uses minimal moisture so the carpets don’t smell and there are no sticky residues left behind. You can walk on the carpets straight away, and there is no need for the carpets to be aired overnight.

These results are achieved by firstly ensuring comprehensive dry extraction, then combining super-hot steam with a thorough brushing action, instead of traditional flushing methods.  This means the carpets are left much drier and the pile is pulled upright again, extending the life of the thread.  Regular vacuuming simply skims the surface, but the Ecotize system cleans and sanitises deep down where the problems lie.  Not only are the carpets left looking cleaner, but they are sanitised as well.  The high heat of the steam, produced directly above the carpet, kills living organisms that dwell within.  

Once you’ve seen this for yourself, you’ll wonder why the old wet methods were ever used in the first place. 

Furniture & Curtains

Because of Ecotize’s unique Steam vapour equipment your furniture and curtains can be carefully detailed and cleaned without leaving them all wet.  Our process is chemical free and actually makes them healthier by killing dust mites, bacteria and mould at the same time. The curtains do not need to be taken down, saving hours of time and potential damage while removing and replacing them to be washed or dry-cleaned.

Our system is also a highly effective solution for sanitising soft furnishing in circumstances of isolation and infection control scenarios.  Often sanitising hard surfaces is simply done by your existing staff but soft furnishings are a little more tricky and yet often contain the highest levels of contaminants.

Tiles & Grout

Tile Manufacturers and Retailers field many calls from customers wanting to know why the surface of their tiles have gone dull no matter how much they try and clean them.  Their answer is simple…Stop using chemicals!  Unfortunately even specific cleaners designated for use on tiles by your chemical supplier leave an unwanted residue.  This builds up over time and the more you clean the duller the tile surface becomes.  In addition, these sticky residues are absorbed in the grout lines attracting grime into these hard to deal with grooves.   White or grey grout quickly becomes black.  Ecotize can restore your tiles and grout without the use of chemicals.

Industry standard methods of tile cleaning typically use horizontal movements of pads in conjunction with various chemicals that fail to get into the pits and groves where the real trouble lies.

Ecotize use a unique system that utilises the power of steam vapour combined with vertically spinning brushes that get into grooves and grout line.  Ecotize can also help you create a manageable regular cleaning system that doesn't require chemical cleaners or leave any chemical residue.

Lino & Safety Flooring

Lino and Safety flooring are often used in places where there is high traffic and hard wearing use.  Because of this they often have a tough life and regular mopping only makes it worse.  Like carpets and tiles, Lino and safety flooring is disadvantaged by regular cleaning with chemical cleaners as they leave a residue that builds up over time.  This tacky residue dulls the surface and attracts dirt to the pits and grooves.  Eventually major resurfacing is required to restore the floor to a presentable state.

Ecotize utilises the power of steam vapour combined with vertically spinning brushes that removes the build-up of chemical residues and gets into pits and grooves.  Once all the grime is removed, resurfacing can proceed where required.   Ecotize can also help you create a regular cleaning system that doesn’t require chemical cleaners or leave any further chemical residue.
