Orange Running Festival Cleanliness Assured by McArdles Cleaning Services

At McArdle’s Cleaning Services, we believe in the power of community events to bring people together, and there’s no better example of this than the Orange Running Festival. This year, we were thrilled to be the official cleaning service provider for the event, ensuring a clean, safe, and welcoming environment for all participants and spectators.

Our Approach to the Festival

Understanding the importance of hygiene, especially in large public gatherings, we deployed our best teams and strategies for the festival. On Saturday, the 9th of March, we began our mission: a solitary, yet highly skilled technician was tasked with preparing the site, focusing on the 12 portaloos and 4 toilet blocks at Gosling Creek Reserve from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm. This initial clean set the stage for the main event, ensuring all facilities were spotless and ready for the influx of runners and families the next day.

As dawn broke on Sunday, our commitment to cleanliness continued. Two dedicated professionals arrived at 6:45 am, ready to maintain the hygiene standards throughout the day from 7:00 am to 12 noon. Their expertise and diligence meant that no matter the time of day, participants had access to clean and hygienic facilities.

The Importance of Hygiene at Public Events

Hygiene at public events is more than just a convenience – it’s a necessity. At McArdle’s, we understand that maintaining clean facilities is essential for the health and safety of all attendees, as well as for the overall success of the event. It’s why we committed to continuous monitoring and replenishment of all hygiene products, from toilet paper to hand sanitiser and soap, ensuring everyone had access to the necessary amenities to enjoy the festival worry-free.

Teamwork and Preparation

Preparation and teamwork played pivotal roles in our approach. Our technicians were equipped with the necessary tools, from cleaning chemicals to protective gear, ensuring they could tackle any situation efficiently. Furthermore, we coordinated closely with the event organisers to understand the festival layout and anticipate the needs of the day, allowing us to manage our resources effectively and ensure continuous service.

Feedback and Future Events

We’re proud of the role we played at the Orange Running Festival and grateful for the positive feedback from participants and organisers alike. This experience has not only reinforced our commitment to community events but also provided valuable insights that we’ll apply in future engagements.

As we look forward to future events, we invite you to share your experiences and feedback. Your input helps us improve and ensure that we continue to meet and exceed community standards.


The Orange Running Festival was more than just a running event; it was a showcase of community spirit, resilience, and the importance of coming together. McArdle’s Cleaning Services was honoured to contribute to its success, ensuring that all attendees could focus on the joy and challenge of the event in a clean and safe environment.
