Master Cleaning Training Institute has developed a new course for CrestClean in a revolutionary window cleaning system. The Pure Water Cleaning System “does not replace a previous method. It enhances what we do,” says CEO Adam Hodge. “With the new Health and Safety regulations the scope for this type of training is phenomenal. It allows you to clean multi-levels easily. Your feet never leave the ground.”

CrestClean’s Pure Water Cleaning System does away with chemicals and unwieldy ladders by utilising a water filtering machine and extendable carbon fibre poles to reach windows up to four storeys high.

The windows of lead instructor Leo Wang’s two-story Auckland home must be crystal clear – that’s where he practiced and refined methods for the Pure Water Cleaning System before he took on the task of training others. During the one-day training Leo covers how to use the machine and water-fed carbon fibre poles, how to ensure correct Health and Safety practices are met, and how to assess and quote a potential job, as well as his own personal tips gleaned after 20 months of owning and using the machine.

“Every window is different – the frame, the windowsill – will affect the results of your cleaning,” says Leo. “The training I developed is based on my own experiences so when they first start to use the machine they are heading in the correct direction. They don’t have to spend extra time to figure out how to use it.”

When in doubt, he says, “I tell them you better do a lot of practice on your own windows.”

During the past two months, 23 people have learned the system and the methods during MCTI training courses in Auckland, Tauranga, Christchurch, and Dunedin, with franchisees attending from Invercargill, Hamilton, Rotorua, and Wellington. “They are now out there seeking business and there’s some great customer feedback,” Adam says.

Additional training courses will be provided to meet business needs as the popularity of the system grows and any new methods or upgrades will be integrated into the Annual Up-skilling training days.
