Words from our customers
Everything went really well last week – the bathroom tiles came up excellent.
Please thank the team as they did a great job.
Just wanted to thank you for your prompt and professional service (with a short turnaround time!) in the face of a possible positive COVID case here in our clinic.
Everything was fully explained to me and the sanitization/fogging service was completed with minimal fuss and disruption to our clinic.

I am extremely pleased with their services and cannot recommend this company enough, as they provide not only an incredible cleaning service, but also superior customer service.
Evans & Partners
During their five years with us I have found One Planet to be a thoroughly professional organisation. All staff, from the top level management to the cleaners are extremely committed to servicing our needs. It’s so nice to come in every morning to find the restaurant floors squeaky clean allowing me to concentrate on my work instead of the cleaning.
We believe the four main pillars of our business success are ethics, good staff, close supervision and a dedication to customer service. Our points of difference are the quality of our commercial cleaners and managers and our very high level of customer service delivery and our commitment to customer satisfaction achieved by our lower number of customers per manager resulting in exceptional customer service.
We are the #1 commercial cleaning company that you can trust for your office and commercial cleaning service in Melbourne. Our business is built upon sincerity and professionalism because our main goal has always been client satisfaction. We have an impeccable track record over the past 20 years of commercial cleaning that speaks for itself. Most importantly, every team member at One Planet Cleaning is considered family and we aim to extend that relationship to our clients.

Simply put, a smaller office or workspace will be quicker to clean than a large one.
- Frequency of cleans
Some spaces dictate being cleaned once a week and others are 7+ times per week.
If you require cleaners to come through after hours so your team is not interrupted during work hours, then there is a premium to consider here.

If you would like your cleaner to supply you with toilet paper, soaps as well as sanitary services, then this will form a portion of the quote.

How often do you require your carpets and windows cleaned? This relates to both the size of the workspace and frequency but typically considered a separate service to routine cleaning.

How to Allergy Proof Your Office
The office shouldn’t be a place where allergies get the best of us. So, let’s talk about making our workspaces less sneeze-prone and more comfortable.
Melbourne’s high pollen levels can be attributed to a variety of factors, including its numerous parks and gardens that, while beautiful, are also rich in grasses and plants that release large quantities of pollen into the air. Additionally, the city’s geographical position and climate contribute to the spread and concentration of airborne allergens, especially during the windy days of spring.
We’re not just about cleaning; we’re about creating spaces where everyone can feel good. That means taking extra steps to battle the springtime pollen invaders that make us all miserable. Our goal? Keeping those tiny, irritating particles out of the office and away from your nose.
Using HEPA filters in our vacuums is one of the tricks up our sleeve. They grab onto even the tiniest allergens, stopping them from floating around in the air. And our cleaning products are chosen carefully – they’re tough on grime but easy on your senses, making sure that strong chemical smells don’t add to the allergy chaos.
Microfiber technology is another hero in our cleaning routine. It’s like a magnet for dust and pollen, helping to stop allergens from spreading from one spot to another.
With a city buzzing with spring vitality yet challenged by high pollen counts, we’re here to ensure that your commercial spaces become refuges from the allergens. Our specialised cleaning methods are designed to reduce the impact of Melbourne’s notorious spring allergies. Ready to make your workspace a haven from sneezes and sniffles?

What Is A Vinyl Strip & Seal?
What is Vinyl Flooring?
Vinyl flooring is a product composed of several layers of different materials (mainly PVC) sandwiched together to form a highly durable, practical and affordable floor covering for many commercial and residential applications. Vinyl flooring is commonly used in factory and warehouse settings due to its durability and inherent waterproof nature.
While vinyl is an extremely durable material, it can look a bit lacklustre as it ages so there is a process known as a ‘vinyl strip and seal’ to help rejuvenate your flooring.
How does strip & seal work?
The floors of your facility are walked over hundreds, if not thousands, of times each day plus bear the brunt of spillages, dirt and moving items around. To ensure their longevity, it’s important to have them stripped and sealed regularly. The process of stripping and sealing floors normally involves three steps:
- Strip the floor
- Apply a base coat
- Apply a top sealer
The most complicated part of the process is the ‘strip. If the flooring has been neglected and hasn’t had a ‘strip and seal’ in a number of years, we will need to strip the sealant layers back completely and this is a resource intensive process. Ideally, you have a general maintenance routine and the likelihood of us needing to remove more than the top layer is slim.
What are the benefits?
Once completed, you should expect that:
- The new seal will add more shine
- You will have an easier surface to clean
- The floor will last longer regular maintenance
- There is a reduced risk of marks and scratches
- There is a barrier against bacteria and abrasion
The benefits definitely provide a good reason for getting your facilities vinyl floors professionally attended to and rejuvenated.
How often do I need to do a ‘strip and seal’?
It really depends on how must usage the floor is getting as well as the kind of usage. Generally, the service is only needed once every few years. It can be done more regularly if the floor receives very frequent use and clearly requires it.
How Do I Reduce My Cleaning Costs
A clean workplace is a healthy, efficient and productive workplace. Keeping your workplace clean should be a top priority for the business so you can get the most out of your team.
Now, maintaining a squeaky clean office takes time and money. We’re here to offer some simple tips to avoid spending more money than you need to without compromising on the quality of the clean.
Get rid of clutter
Oftentimes, it’s not the dust and germs that lets an office down – it’s just the clutter. Even if an office has been disinfected and sanitised from the ground up, it will still look messy from just one unorganised desk. To keep on top of clutter, we suggest encouraging employees to keep their individual workspaces always organised. If appropriate, we suggest offering basic file trays, folders and drawer systems to keep things in order. Simply put, less clutter means less places for dust to accumulate and a faster clean which keeps costs down.
Develop a culture of cleaning up
Ultimately, a clean office benefits everyone in it. From a health and efficiency perspective, it’s in everyone’s best interests to do the little things to keep the place clean. As above, if you encourage employees to tidy up after themselves and maintain tidy workspaces, you can drastically reduce cleaning costs. As the saying goes – ‘many hands make light work’.
Hire the experts
It might seem counterintuitive but hiring an expert commercial cleaner is actually more cost-efficient. Professional cleaners have the appropriate equipment and training to perform tasks efficiently and effectively. This is especially true for larger jobs such as deep cleaning carpets, removing stains, washing windows and maintaining bathroom hygiene. If you’ve fostered a culture of cleaning up and staying tidy, then let your staff get back to doing what they do best and leave the cleaning to the experts!
Use fewer, larger bins
Having a bin at every single work station might seem like a good idea but it means lots more work to remove the waste. If you haven’t already, we suggest having centralised bins that staff can walk over to – keeping it all in one place just means less work at the end of the day!
Invest in quality and technology
Technology has permeated all factors of modern life and cleaning is no exception. Robotic vacuums are one example of using technology to make regular cleaning that much easier. Hand dryers with high air output are now much more effective than the traditional hand dryers that chewed through power. Investing in these tools might be an upfront cost but they will continue to pay dividends in the future.
Use reusable products
Microfibre cleaning cloths are a great investment for any workplace. They can be used as-is for dusting and wiping up messes, or you can dampen them with water or a cleaning solution for more stubborn stains.
What’s more, microfibre cloths can be used multiple times before they need to be washed. Even better is that with proper care, they can last for years! Of course, remember to buy colour-coded microfibre cloths to prevent cross-contamination.
What Are The Dirtiest Areas In An Office?
Maintaining and growing a business is hard already so don’t make life any more difficult by having to keep your office clean yourself too!
By keeping the office clean, we’re removing harmful bacteria that could infect your staff and keep them away from work and unproductive. Here are the three biggest hotspots for germs:
Everyone always thinks to clean the front door and any other primary doors but what about the fridge and microwave door or even the filing cabinet drawer handles? Having a few bottles of hand sanitiser spray can certainly help curb the amount of germs but you still need regular disinfection of the surroundings. One Planet Cleaning can identify these areas and keep them squeaky clean.
Keyboards, telephones, photocopy machines are all used by employees but most workplaces forget that these need to be cleaned. Electronic devices can be hotspots of germs so a professional cleaner like One Planet Cleaners can give the office a full wipe down.
Elevators and Handrails
Imagine how regularly the handrails in your office are being gripped and then irregularly cleaned? If your workplace has an elevator, the buttons are being pressed all day with very little cleaning. Employ a professional cleaner to make sure you don’t have to think about it and your staff can work in a spotless workplace.
What Are The Benefits of A Commercial Cleaner?
Hiring a contract cleaner offers several key advantages:
Enhanced Cleaning Quality: Professional cleaners provide a thorough clean, reaching difficult areas and performing the job outside of regular business hours to avoid disruptions.
Healthier Work Environment: Regular cleaning reduces allergens, dust, and bacteria, leading to a healthier office or industrial site. This is crucial in maintaining a clean and safe workspace, especially in construction or industrial settings where debris and chemicals are prevalent.
Time and Cost Savings: Outsourcing cleaning tasks allows your employees to focus on their core duties, enhancing productivity. Professional cleaners can deliver high-quality cleaning services more efficiently and cost-effectively than in-house cleaning.
Reduced Employee Absenteeism: A clean environment lowers the risk of illness spreading among staff, reducing the number of sick days and the associated costs.
Access to Advanced Cleaning Technology: Commercial cleaners use the latest technology and techniques, ensuring a more effective cleaning process. This includes specialized equipment for industrial sites, such as high cleaning, pressure washing, and vacuuming.
Positive First Impression: A clean and well-maintained workspace leaves a good impression on clients and potential customers, enhancing your business's reputation.
Hazard Mitigation: Especially in construction and industrial sites, routine cleaning reduces potential hazards, limiting the risk of accidents and liability.
Improved Work Morale: A clean environment can boost employee morale and motivation, as staff prefer working in a clean, organized setting.
Professional Expertise: Commercial cleaners have the expertise and experience to handle various cleaning challenges, which is particularly beneficial for specialized environments like construction or industrial sites.
Q: How does professional cleaning impact office productivity? A: A clean and tidy office environment enhances productivity by creating a more pleasant and healthier workspace. Employees are more motivated and can concentrate better in a clean setting, which also reflects professionalism to clients.
Q: Can professional cleaning reduce business risks? A: Yes, regular and thorough cleaning, especially in construction and industrial settings, minimizes various risks. It helps prevent workplace accidents, reduces liability issues, and ensures compliance with health and safety regulations.
Q: Is it cost-effective to hire a professional cleaner instead of cleaning in-house? A: Absolutely. Professional cleaners bring efficiency, expertise, and access to advanced cleaning technologies, which often makes their services more cost-effective compared to assigning cleaning tasks to highly skilled employees whose talents can be better utilized elsewhere in the business.
