Client Introduction

Balga Senior High School was established in 1970 in the northern area of the city of Perth. It is a culturally diverse and inclusive school that represents over forty nationalities and is guided by its motto, “Strength in Unity”.

The Challenge

The facility’s Manager, Michael Leadbitter, wanted his cleaning team to work smarter and not harder when it came to keeping the school walkways and rooms clean. For that matter, he wanted machines to do the work instead of traditional brooms and mops. They have a mixture of floor surfaces, tiles, concrete, wooden floors to laminates, so they required a machine to be compatible with different brushes and pads for enabling their operator to easily shift to different floor surfaces.

The Solution

When ASC WA Area Manager, Ross Sheehan, was consulted, he presented Michael with several options from the ASC Eureka floor scrubber range that had brush-assisted drives to traction drive machines. Michael chose the Eureka E61 with traction drive and asked for its demonstration at the school. Ross was able to demonstrate this machine on-site to Verica, the head of the school’s cleaning team.

The Result

The cleaning crew was impressed by the simple operation of the brush the ability to enable pre-washes and then dry the floor. They liked how easy it was to swap from the PPL brush for cleaning the concrete floor to the pad drive for cleaning the laminate and timber floor areas.

Michael liked the machine so much that he placed the order for the model ASC Eureka E 61 immediately.

Ross Sheehan delivered the ASC Eureka E61 to the site. He also conducted an operator training session with Verica (Supervisor) and her staff.
