ADLER Commercial Building Wash Services is a sub-brand of PJF Services Ltd, our background is in maintenance painting and exterior cleaning for New Zealand’s major commercial real estate management companies as well as many others besides.
Our cleaning division was known by many as P.J.F for a long time – but in 2018 we thought we’d grow a pair of wings and go to market under our new brand – ADLER.
Since you asked, ‘where did Adler come from’ – well sit tight and we’ll explain;
Coming up with a new name for an existing brand/business is actually a lot harder than it looks! We wanted to go ‘animal’ so in the end the mighty eagle was selected, it’s the apex predator in the avian world (which is a good start). Like us, eagles enjoy flying at high altitude for great lengths of time, this is one characteristic that makes them unique, also (insert drum roll).. an eagle will never surrender to the size or strength of its prey.
The name ADLER to us represents strength, competitiveness and remaining the top of the game. (side note; Adler means ‘Eagle’ in German)
We have office locations in both Auckland and Christchurch and we have the skill and expertise to effectively manage any small or large-scale building wash project throughout the country. Our ready team of cleaning operators will transform those first impressions for you – year in year out.
We believe in the often-quoted saying that people buy off people, and it’s the people that make the difference at ADLER. You can expect to be treated as a professional and with respect.
This is something we live and breathe at ADLER, it’s drummed into our operators and customer service people so the same professional vibes are felt from every department in our team.
A guy that loves cleaning.. he seriously does! When school was out he joined the family painting and property maintenance business, spending around 4 years on the end of a KEW Hot water pressure cleaning unit doing everything from graffiti removal, footpath cleaning in the CBD, and steam cleaning ship loading equipment before the mechanics serviced them (i.e. crawling around trucks and forklifts getting covered in black grease). That was the hands-on experience. After that, 11 years + spent in the chemical industry provided some invaluable knowledge on what products to use and where to point them. He has a background in troubleshooting and loves to find solutions.

Team Leader - Canterbury
Geoff the ref we call him, a rugby coach in the season and a bundle of knowledge when it comes to the game. He’s an expert at graffiti removal so we thought we’d show him reversing someone’s art. After rugby, we think it’s next favorite thing. Geoff’s been around a while and as it turns out there are not many people he doesn’t know. he has an unusually large database of people up there in his faculties – where he finds time to meet them all we’ll never know.
As our head cleaning operator for the Canterbury and Southern region, Geoff has got a good thing going on and you’ll more than likely seem him appear on your site if you’re lucky enough to reside in the Mainland.
Team Leader - Auckland
When he stops working long enough and brushes his hair we’ll get a decent photo of him. Blind heads our Auckland team and while reasonably new to the company, he has slotted right in the groove.
What we know of him so far;
He works jolly hard, always keen for more and likes to have a big pile of work in front of him, he’s a family man and busy father of 4 kids, a league fan (quite rare actually), and most importantly – he really knows his stuff.
Blind has been cleaning large complexes around Auckland for years and has taught us a few tricks. We’re glad to have him on the team.
Yes we know, it’s a bit boring but it’s a serious value of ours. The cleaning industry (in a broad sense) is not generally known for professionalism but we’re different. At ADLER, our presentation, our speech, and our workmanship is professional – no exceptions.
Maybe a title rather than a value but we still hold on to our old tried and true slogan, Caretakers of your first impressions. We see value in the same things as you, and we task ourselves to make your investments look properly cared for.
We are dedicated to delivering what is required of us – and a little bit more. They say price is what you pay, value is what you get. At ADLER we challenge ourselves to go the extra mile and bring some extra value to your cleaning investment. It might be a cleaning a sign or a footpath- or taking away some rubbish, just something extra of value for you and your tenants.
