Seal of approval for CrestClean team
A husband and wife cleaning team were on the guest list for a special reception to recognise companies, tradespeople, medical personnel, and public servants who provide services to New Zealand’s Governor-General Sir Jerry and Lady Janine Mateparae.
Dan and Aijita Sharma, who carry out general cleaning at Government House in Wellington, work five times a week at the historic homestead. And the CreatClean Franchisees were thrilled to don their glad rags when they attended a “thank you” event.
“It was a great honour for CrestClean,” said Dan, who is also a Master Cleaners Regional Trainer.
Philip Wilson, CrestClean’s Wellington Regional Quality Assurance Co-ordinator, said having the contract to clean Government House was prestigious for the company.
“It’s such a historic place and Dan and and Aijita feel they are privileged to be working there.”
At a speech to invited guests Sir Jerry praised those who worked behind the scenes at Government House.
“We have a huge range of people here tonight. Suppliers of produce and wine, florists, cleaners, gardeners, photographers, plumbers, alarm installers and pest controllers are just some of the people whose services Government House needs in order to work well.”
He added: “Events run smoothly and the House and gardens look pristine because of people such as yourselves, working behind the scenes, in support of our staff.
“The household team has asked me to convey their thanks to you. I want to tell you how grateful we are that we can call on the professional services of people who are responsive, accommodating, flexible – who understand and appreciate the idiosyncrasies of a heritage building and approach the challenges here in a timely manner – and who have a can-do attitude.”
