While the list of cleaning equipment we use here at Southern Cross Cleaning is almost endless, below you can find some of the most commonly used equipment.
Use the links below to quickly navigate to each of the different types of cleaning equipment.
We use Oats mops and buckets at all of our sites.
The standard 450 gram industrial cotton mop is our first choice and at the majority of our sites we use specific colours for certain areas.
For example we use red in washrooms, blue in kitchens and lunchrooms, and white on hard floors in public areas.
We undertake a lot of high pressure cleaning of paving, concrete and tiles.
We have a variety high pressure cleaning machines of different PSI and sizes which gives us the ability to do all jobs big or small.
We have 3 electric Stihl machines ranging in size 1200 to 1800 PSI; these are great for the smaller jobs and confined spaces.
Then we also have 2 Petrol Honda machines that are 1400 and 3500 PSI which are more suited for external areas with no access to electricity.
We carry several hot water extraction and encapsulation machines.
We have recently purchased a Razorback hot water extraction machine; it is extremely powerful and easy to manuever around a building when cleaning.
It has the added bonus of having an inlet for automatic filling and outlet for automatic removal of waste water, making it very efficient and saving a lot o f time.
We use the Cimex CR48 for encapsulation; this machine has interchangeable pads and brushes and can also be used for scrubbing tiles and hard floors.
Pac Vac backpack vacuum cleaners are our preferred choice when it comes to vacuum cleaners. We use two types: the Super Pro and the Thrift.
The Super Pro is a durable and powerful vacuum cleaner that suits the majority of sites we clean.
We have recently introduced the Thrift which is perfect for small sites with minimal carpeted areas.
Although we carry several floor polishers our machine of choice is the Pac Vac Polypro 400.
This machine is quiet and easy to use. It has an anti splash skirt and built in vacuum, it also has interchangeable discs for buffing, polishing, and scrubbing hard floors.
This machine is great for all hard floor maintenance including wood, tiles and vinyl.
