We set the benchmark for Lift/Escalator pit pumping & cleaning

Safety comes first for all our customers

Look Up, Stay Safe.

Blackhole is a family owned & run business.

Blackhole was founded in early 2003. It underwent a change of ownership in early 2004 and went on to acquire an excellent reputation within the vertical transport industry as a specialist elevator pit cleaning company. Clients such as Schindler Lifts Australia, OTIS Elevators Australia and Liftronic regularly utilise Blackhole for a variety of services ranging from the standard pit cleaning to lift motor rooms and escalators.

Blackhole expanded to escalator cleaning by mid 2007 and during 2008 also started collecting oil drums at reasonable and competitive prices.

In 2011, Blackhole acquired equipment to provide environmental incineration of solid contaminated waste collected onsite which cannot be transported to landfill.

In 2013, Blackhole invested and expanded its services with the acquisition of a high pressure, high temperature dry steam cleaning machine/vacuum, which will compliment the demand for onsite escalators, escalator steps, lift fixtures and any disinfection requirements with dry steam.

In 2018, Blackhole further invested and expanded its services with the acquisition of a Cryogenic/Dry Ice Blasting Machine, which will compliment the demand for onsite escalator cleaning, escalator step cleaning, lift fixtures cleaning and any disinfection requirements with dry ice.
