About Us - Sandra

Sandra Pankhurst is the owner and Director of STC Services (formerly ATC Services), being the first choice for Trauma Cleaning in Victoria for over 21 years. Prior to this, Sandra was the first female Funeral Director in Victoria for WD Rose and Son.

During her time in the funeral industry, Sandra developed a deep compassion and empathy for those who were left behind in both spiritual and practical ways. STC has developed a breadth of experience and the specialist technical skills to make STC a preferred supplier today.

When trauma or tragedy strikes, essential services like police, fire and water authorities will not be there to clean up the aftermath. In addition, the services of a regular cleaner are not of a standard necessary to manage extreme crime, drug and alcohol misuse and hoarder/trashing type accommodation.  These situations require appropriate sanitation, sterilisation and the disposal of dangerous bio-hazard waste.

STC staff members are trained personally by Sandra in Bio-Cleaning, blood-borne pathogens, mould restoration, prevention of cross-contamination and with strict attention to highly detailed cleaning. All trauma cleaning complies with state-based occupational health and safety standards.

STC has firmly established itself as a leader in a range of trauma cleaning applications and produces outstanding results from properties previously in squalid disrepair. STC has been featured over the years in media, including Andrew Denton’s Enough Rope, the Herald Sun and The Age.

Sandra’s motto is “Excellence is no Accident” and it is clear that STC has the results and clients to prove this. Whilst technically outstanding, STC’s knowledge of décor and re-organisation is imperative in preparing households for sale.
