What we do
We effectively remove mould & bacteria using the safest, most technologically advanced products & treatments.
Mould is a toxic bacteria growth that is quite commonly found in residential and commercial properties throughout Sydney. Sometimes it can be seen on walls, ceilings and even furniture and clothing, but sometimes it can’t.
Moisture from rain, leaky taps or even your shower, along with changes in humidity levels plus poor ventilation means mould spores spread rapidly. The presence of mould – often unseen – can lead to serious health issues including allergies, asthma, recurring chest infections, eye and throat irritations and breathing difficulties.
The only way to effectively treat mould long term is to kill it. Household cleaners and some claiming to be mould removal specialists (using chlorine hyperchloride) DO NOT KILL MOULD. It has been scientifically proven that these products simply restore colour.
We work to identify the source of the problem using moisture detection equipment before conducting a thorough examination of the premises to determine the presence of secondary growths. After removing or isolating the source we apply our effective, safe treatment using our patented technologically advanced products. We care about your health and want to ensure you have a healthy environment to live in so we will also discuss with you ways to ensure the mould is effectively managed for the long term.
We have carefully and effectively treated almost 1000 residential properties since 2006 safely and effectively removing mould.
EARLY LEARNING CENTRES
We at No Germs are parents and grandparents, so we know what it means to have an unhealthy child. We are also business owners and recognise that infections within an early learning centre also means sick carers, costly replacement staff, additional reporting and operational disruption.
The health, safety and well-being of children and carers alike is critical to ensure happy homes and work places for everyone. Contagious outbreaks however create unnecessary complications to everyone’s lives with miserable little people, parents challenged to effectively balance work and emergency call outs to grandparents.
We at No Germs have a proven strategy that has minimised any outbreak interruption to the daily running of early learning centres. Our services in the removal of bacteria to kill hand, foot and mouth disease and norovirus are proven. We can quickly take action against bacterial infections using a water based product called Zoono* that is non toxic, non allergic and food safe. We use the broadest and safest biocide agent available to ensure happy, healthy kids, carers and parents.
We can treat any commerical property but are specialists in treating early learning centres.
*Zoono was recently approved as the only anti microbial product used in commercial aircraft to minimise the likelihood of cross contamination to the travelling public.
FOOD PREPARATION FACILITIES
Our founder spent 30 years in the food industry and knows a thing or two about food standards and industrial sanitation. As a result we have over 30 years’ experience in the management and control of biological, chemical, and physical hazards from raw material production, procurement and handling, to manufacturing, distribution and consumption of the finished product. We are experts in helping you identify areas of potential hazard and at treating the problems before they arise.
Our clients have described us as an insurance policy or firewall of protection against bacterial outbreaks namely salmonella and listeria. We exclusively use chlorine dioxide in the elimination of all forms of harmful bacteria in the food industry. Chlorine dioxide has undergone exhaustive trials in the USA to determine it’s efficacy in many fields of application with particular attention to food and the food industry itself.
We know your micro switches and electric motors can't get wet and we know your ATP reading needs to be 80 or below. We work outside your production hours to eliminate disruption. We are great at identifying and resolving problems before they are problems.
We are Sydney’s leading applicator of gaseous and liquid chlorine dioxide to a wide range of food manufacturing facilities, meaning we can clean the areas of your business that you can get to that are most likely potentially hazardous. The benefits of bacterial management and control are obvious. Logo or brand protection and the minimisation of product recalls are a primary concern. Add to that litigation and the extreme financial burden associated with any of these issues and the damage can be irreparable.
We're on a mission to eradicate mould and bacteria across homes and businesses throughout Sydney.
Peppercorn Food Company
Dean Murphy, Managing Director
Since 2009 No Germs have carried out regular treatments and servicing to enhance our already stringent protocols of food hygiene and sanitising, which has enabled us to ensure we offset any risk. I would highly recommend them and their services.
Happy Faces Daycare
Jeffrey Yarham, Director
We had an outbreak of Norovirus (gastro) among the children and carers totalling around 12 cases, and we closed the centre. I immediately contacted No Germs who responded straight away and came to treat the premises. We reopened the centre the following day and had no additional cases reported (even several weeks later).
Owner / Occupier, Northbridge NSW
For some 8 months my 5 year old son had not slept a full night because of an ongoing respiratory complaint and he had not responded to specialist medical treatment, I called on No Germs who found that I had a mould problem which they duly treated. Within 3 days my son was sleeping right through the night and has done so ever since. His respiratory ailment has gone.

For the last 12 months we have engaged No Germs to treat production areas producing high risk products. APT results have validated their work and we have consistently
Kevin Byron, National Quality & Food Safety Manager
No Germs have a desire to get in and get the job done, and take pride in their work delivering results. I would have no hesitation in recommending their services to other companies and in fact I have done so already.
