    Our innovative scrubbing machines cover large areas efficiently, while protecting our waterways by ‘picking up’ the waste water used in the scrubbing process. Additionally, and depending on the task, Civic Group is able to use biodegradable detergents.

    Our mechanical scrubbing equipment consists of:

    • Compact cabin scrubbers (Hako)
    • Ride-on scrubbers (Tennant)

    • Car parks and parking buildings
    • Building entrances and surrounds
    • Factory floors and warehouses
    • Malls and town centres
    • Pavement cleaning

    We currently perform scheduled drain, sump and cesspit clearing for local councils around New Zealand. On an ad-hoc basis we also perform hydro-excavation services.
