School Cleaning for over 20 years

We take care of cleaning so you can focus on teaching, and your students on learning.

Students spend most of their time during the day at school. It is a special place where children of all ages learn and grow. Thus, school facility managers are handed a huge responsibility to take care of students’ education and safety. Here at Cleanworks we are fully committed to helping take care of the second part.

Professional Cleaning for Daycare and Preschools

Most germs in schools are spread through sneezes, coughs, breaths, and unclean hands. As you know, kids do these things all the time. This is why their learning environment needs to be cleaned and disinfected regularly.

K-12 Schools

By keeping your learning environment clean, you can minimise the sick days of both students and teachers, resulting in a better learning environment for everyone.

College and Universities

Different areas and rooms of learning may require different methods, tools, and cleaning agents. Our professional cleaners are extensively trained, highly experienced, and fully equipped to handle all the cleaning needs of your classrooms, lecture halls, science labs, restrooms, common areas, hallways, and much more.

We will help you keep the focus on learning

School facility managers have it tough; educational facilities are not only expected to provide quality education, but also maintain a clean, healthy, and safe environment for the students to learn. In no other type of organisation are there such huge and varied sites, intense scrutiny from stakeholders, and a high density of users – and that is aside from the unique challenges of safeguarding the health and managing the contamination-prone behaviour of children.

With all of these responsibilities, not to mention the countless ground keeping and structural concerns in schools, it is not surprising that many schools and educational facilities turn to professional cleaners for their cleaning needs. This is where we come in.

Cleanworks’ systemic approach to cleaning will help safeguard your students and staff. We will take care of everything; from daily cleaning to specialised high-level disinfecting. Our expert cleaners are extensively trained, highly experienced, and fully equipped to handle all levels of service to fit your needs and budget. We will also help your school keep up to date with all the standards and regulations for educational facilities.

Meticulous and thorough, yet frugal school cleaning services

The difference between good janitorial cleaning and a comprehensive commercial cleaning service is the ability of the latter to balance the need for thorough cleaning consistently and keep everyone using the educational facility safe, at a low cost. It’s a delicate challenge that requires planning, management, and laser-point execution. That is what Cleanworks cleaning is all about.

Here at Cleanworks, we make sure your educational facility is cleaned, disinfected, and sanitised using our extensive cleaning methods and safe cleaning solutions, from the hallways to the classrooms, all the way to the restrooms, breakrooms, and much more. Our professional cleaners deliver a clean and safe environment for all.

Industry-leading systems

Not only do we regularly audit and report on the performance of our cleaners, but we also give our clients the ability to have the cleaning of their school independently assessed and accredited through the 5-Star Healthy Schools Programme.

The right people

We strongly believe that a good commercial cleaning service is only as good as the people delivering the job. Thus, we have developed a robust system that allows us to effectively vet, train, and incentivise our cleaners. This is to ensure the people we send for the job have all the knowledge, experience, and tools to execute the cleaning efficiently, and exactly to instructions and specifications every time, all the time.

Tested and proven track record

With more than two decades of experience in the industry, our cleaners have seen it all. We have experience cleaning schools of all shapes and sizes. As a matter of fact, some of our longest-running and favourite clients are educational institutions. We are proud to service some of South East Queensland’s largest and most prestigious school campuses, and will be more than happy to put you directly in contact with school representatives who will speak candidly about our services.

Additional cleaning specialists when you need them​

Cleanworks is a one-stop-shop for all your commercial cleaning service needs. As part of our wide range of services, we offer impact or periodic cleaning through our task-specific cleaning specialists. This is a great way to use some fresh eyes and revamp your school to make it more visually appealing, rather than simply cleaning and maintaining it. This includes:

Make a positive change​

Cleanworks offers commercial cleaning services across BrisbaneGold CoastToowoombaNewcastleSydney, Melbourne, and Adelaide.


Keeping classrooms and the whole school clean minimises the risk of spreading disease-causing germs between students, faculties, and staff. This will help prevent people from getting sick, reducing the times they are absent.

Having your school professionally cleaned will provide your institution with a clean and safe learning environment.

Deep cleaning involves 1 to 4 week-worth of cleaning done all at once. This is carried out by expert cleaners who are fully equipped, skilled, and experienced to provide a thorough cleaning of educational institutions. They use special cleaning agents, equipment, and tools to ensure each corner of the school, from hallways to the classrooms, restrooms to offices, etc., are all cleaned, disinfected, and sanitised.

Professional school cleaners are also familiar with the health and safety regulations of the local area to ensure a safe and hassle-free cleaning service.

Here at Cleanworks, we offer a fully customisable commercial school cleaning service. This means each learning institution can choose the specific parts and types of cleaning they want, based on their needs and preferences. This is why it is difficult to give a fixed rate for cleaning.

Cleanworks will work with your available budget, but we will never skimp on cleaning. We will make sure you are fully satisfied with our service, no matter your budget.

When you become part of the Cleanworks school cleaners’ team, you will be responsible for the general cleanliness of our schools. This includes keeping the floors clean, polished, and safe for people to walk on. You will also do major dusting of chairs, desks, etc., in classrooms and offices, reposition furniture and make sure everything is in its proper places. You will also be responsible for cleaning the washrooms and the outdoor areas of the school.

School cleaners in Australia general earn from $20,000 to $60,000 per year. This, of course, depends on a lot of factors, such as the number of hours, time of shift, level of experience, special expertise, etc.

On average, the salary of cleaners is $29.02 per hour in Australia.

As stated earlier, there are no specific academic qualifications or knowledge for school cleaning jobs. The minimum requirement most employers look for is a high school diploma, while experience in the field is a big plus. For specialised cleaning, some employers may require certifications for safe handling of specific tasks, equipment, machinery, etc.

Working as a cleaner involves mopping, tidying, scrubbing, vacuuming, polishing, dusting, etc., of work areas, furniture, fixtures, and even various machinery. For school cleaning, you may be asked to work irregular hours, split shifts, and after-school hours to avoid disrupting the operation of the school.
