As we strive to achieve cleaner, faster, greener cleaning processes we look to the market place.

Last year was undoubtably one that changed the way we think about cleaning. From the introduction of the i-Range to the implementation of a cost effective, chemical free cleaning solution, named Tersano.

Notably what has become more common place – is cleaning product advancements that are driven by customer requirements. In an era of innovation and change the optimization of available technology is having a huge impact on the way we clean.

But just when we thought we had seen it all – a new and exciting concept has emerged that is 4-D cleaning.

This holistic approach divides the cleaning of a room into 4 dimensions:

1-D: Floors

2-D: Walls and ceiling

3-D: Furniture

4-D: Indoor air

Each of these 4 dimensions has an equal influence on the cleanliness of a room. If you clean one of the dimensions, it is inevitable that the dirt from another will contaminate the clean area again.

In a recent APT test carried out by our i-partners it was revealed that a clean floor became dirty again within 2 hours. What is interesting about these findings is that the dirt did not come from people walking on the floor but from the air.

How is it possible that the air could affect the cleanliness of the floor?

Often, we don’t realise that the air is filled with pollution, particularly indoor air.

As the air particles settle on the floor, furniture and walls, they contaminate the area, again and again. Only when we take a holistic approach to cleaning, using the right tools and techniques can we achieve really clean results.

Let’s explore the 4 dimensions in a little more detail:

1D. Floors

Floors are often the single most time-consuming element of any cleaning regime. As such it is important that once the highest level of clean is achieved that it is maintained.

Suggested 1D Cleaning Tools:

The i-Mop and i-Vac 5B and 9B models have been designed to clean floors faster, easier and with better results than traditional equipment. These machines will make you floors noticeably cleaner and more hygienic - they are also less harmful for the environment.

2D. Walls and Ceiling

Walls and Ceilings are often an unrecognized part of a maintenance regime. Depending on your industry, walls and ceilings can be exposed to many contaminants such as dirt, dust and grease. Keeping them clean can be a real challenge, as residues from poor floor cleaning regimes and other air contaminates are likely to rest here.

Suggested 2D Cleaning Tools:

The i-fibre and i-scrub have been carefully created to tackle these labour-intensive cleaning tasks. The i-fibre’s frame bends 360°, perfect for cleaning walls and hard-to-reach places. It is ideal for removing light dirt and dust from walls and ceilings. The i-scrub is the perfect partner, ideal for deep cleans on walls and tiles that require a powerful scrubber.

3D. Surfaces

Surface cleaning is another huge element of any cleaning schedule. Regardless of your work environment, offices, retail outlets, restaurants, airports and other transport stations all have a vast number of surfaces to be cleaned. Each surface will have its own unique set of properties and therefore multiple cleaning techniques may be required.

Suggested 3D Cleaning Tools:

Similar to cleaning walls and ceilings we suggest the handheld i-fibre and i-scrub for surface cleans. The i-fibre is ideal for light cleaning along flat surfaces such as countertops or mirrors. While the i-scrub is perfect for cleaning curved surfaces with its soft edge technology it moves seamlessly around such surfaces as bath tubs and sinks.

4D. Indoor Air

Indoor air cleaning is a relatively new concept. Indoor air is often overlooked when we think about cleaning. However, it is top of our list to create a healthy work environment. Indoor air pollution includes things like; dust and other particles generated by cooking appliances and other poorly filtered equipment. It can contain things like dust mites, moulds, bacteria and even viruses. Indoor air can be 5x more polluted than outside air, affecting allergies, asthma, concentration, sleep quality, and much more.

Suggested 4D Cleaning Tools:

The i-Air is the perfect partner for tracking the quality of your indoor air. It is a small tracking device that monitors each of the 5 units to maintain a healthy and happy environment for your team and your clients.

The 5 units of measurement used to determine air quality, are as follows: Humidity, C02, Temperature, Chemicals and Dust. The i-Air carefully monitors each of these elements and notifies you know the moment your air quality reaches and unhealthy or unsafe level.

Orbital Machine Overview

Orbital machines are becoming more common place in recent years simply because they help reduce the use of water and chemicals. For many companies becoming more sustainable is now a core focus. Therefore, they are actively seeking equipment and solutions that help them achieve this.

What are the differences between a standard single disc brush base and the orbital one?

A key difference between single disc scrubber dryers and an orbital scrubber is the need for a splash guard. A single disc machine needs a splash guard because the diameter of the brush turns at 150 rpm, creating a lateral splash. Also, the side of the brushes touch the floor with only a little portion of the bristles. This means the cleaning result is lower than that in the centre.

However, with an orbital machine there is no splash and the cleaning result is homogenous across the whole of the surface.

Why are orbital floor scrubbing machines so efficient?

It is true that one of the most noteworthy benefits of an orbital machine is that they can significantly improve productivity. This is because orbital machines have a higher pressure on the brush base. Moreover, there is the possibility of having extra weight which increases their effectiveness in removing soil.

Another reason that orbital machines are so effective is because of the high number of oscillations - these machines are much faster than a standard scrubber dryer. Coupled with their rectangular pad, these machines deliver a winning, uniform clean every time – even on the side of the brush base.

Can you tell me more - why would I choose an orbital scrubbing machine?

Firstly, if you are considering an orbital machine, we would recommend the Comac Antea, walk behind or the Comac Innova, ride-on.

Versatility is one of the main characteristics of these machines, as they can be used on many different floor types and in many environments: schools, hospitals, offices, hotels, supermarkets, sports centres etc.

These machines can be distinguished from the rest of the orbital machines because of their compact dimensions, higher rpm and lightness. They offer less battery consumption, easier transport, and more manoeuvrability. They use less nominal power which guarantees more autonomy – for you this means less charge cycles and longer battery life.

Comac orbital machines can be used for maintenance and deep cleaning, thanks to their vibration and rotation of more than 2000 rpm for each orbit of the brush base.

And with the appropriate accessories, they can even be used to polish your floors. These orbital machines are equipped with an anti-vibration system especially designed for this application. They have two settings; standard anti-vibration and double vibration absorption, designed specifically to increase operator comfort.

If you would like to know more about standard or orbital scrubber dryers, please do not hesitate to get in touch.

On entry to your business floors can make a great first impression on customers, clients and employees alike.

Is the current status of your floors representative of your business?

._shiny_office_lobby_floor (1)

Keeping your hard floors looking clean and shiny can be a difficult task. To keep your floors looking fantastic, it is essential that the right cleaning programme to protect your floors is in place. This will ensure that your floors look clean and shiny for years to come.

There are three key ingredients that each cleaning regime must have to succeed in keeping hard floors– these are as follows:

 

  1. A Floor Care Schedule – Creating a clear cleaning schedule and activity list is much more cost effective than replacing hard floors. A maintained floor finish protects against substrate to prevent scratches and other damage, whilst keeping floors looking clean and shiny.
  2. A Thick Floor Finish – When it comes to floor finish, there is a lot of information one must process and consider. Failure to select and properly apply a high quality finish is crucial to the status of your floors and your ability to maintain them.  In order to achieve best results it is recommended that no less than 5 coats of finish are applied to the floor, ideally 6 – 8 coats should be applied to fully protect your floor
  3. Quality Cleaning Products – When it comes to hard floor solutions there is a wide variety of products available to choose from.  Unfortunately not all products are equal and therefore it is of utmost importance that you are choosing a commercial grade finish. Discounted products and even some of the lower priced commercial products often ware away faster and require much more up-keep.
  4. Quality Janitorial Equipment – When it comes to cleaning equipment it is important that you invest in at least one high quality item. The quality of replaceable items is not as significant compared to that of longer term investments. That said longer term investments need not break the bank.

It is possible to get high quality janitorial supplies with competitive pricing – like the Contractor range of rotary machines; offering unrivalled value and performance across a range of hard floor cleaning tasks including scrubbing, buffing, spray cleaning and bonnet mopping.  At 230 rpm the Contractor Range provides the flexibility to effectively carry out most hard floor cleaning tasks. Optional tank may be added for scrubbing or bonnet mopping or change to pads to carry out stripping, scrubbing, mark removal and spray cleaning.

 

For more information on floor maintenance, floor care products or cleaning machines please feel free to contact Chemical Direct – Janitorial Supply. We would be delighted to receive your enquiries.

When it comes to purchasing a scrubber dryer, it can be tough knowing where to start and you want a machine that can be relied on for years to come. A scrubber dryer is a significant investment and you want to be sure that you are spending your money wisely. Here are 5 qualities to look out for that will ensure you’re onto a winner.

Productivity

The very nature of a scrubber dryer means that they should drive increases in productivity. They are designed to clean large commercial areas in short spaces of time. There are many aspects that influence a machine’s productivity, including battery life, water usage and recharge time.

Suitability

Each commercial and industrial environment is different, so make sure that the scrubber dryer you choose is suitable for the environment it is required in. A large, noisy ride-on scrubber dryer would be unsuitable for a busy supermarket, likewise, a walk-behind will not be of much use in a vast expansive warehouse. Make sure you choose a machine that will work for you, not against you.

Reputation

A scrubber dryer is an expensive piece of equipment, which is even more reason why you should invest in a brand that is respected in the industry and has a good reputation. You want a reliable and robust machine, not one that breaks down regularly and costs you money in repairs and downtime.

Simplicity

There are many scrubber dryers on the market, but the best ones all have one thing in common- their simplicity. A machine that is user-friendly is more efficient and enjoyable to use. Another bonus of a straightforward machine is that very little staff training will be required to operate it.

Results

It goes without saying that if you have spent money on a scrubber dryer you will expect excellent cleaning results. A great scrubber dryer will deliver excellent cleaning results time after time, ensuring a thorough and even finish on your floors’ surface.

 

Don’t compromise on your cleaning outcomes and look out for a scrubber dryer that incorporates all of these qualities.

For areas where there is a high volume of pedestrian traffic, the Galaxy is useful in keeping the carpets clean intermittently if a full deep clean is not possible at the time.

As with any carpet cleaning operation, debris should be cleared from the area of work beforehand to ensure that the machine can perform to its full capabilities and that the desired results are achieved.

Choosing the ideal cleaning machine for medium and large scale retail outlets can be a real challenge.

Comac has listened to these challenges and responded with the introduction of the new Versa 55 BT and 65 BT.

The Versa walk- behind scrubber dryer is a very productive cleaning machine. It is compact in design and therefore easy to manoeuvre in restricted or obstructed spaces.

In fact the Versa has a number of features that make it ideally suited to retail cleaning.

It has two disc brushes and a working width of either 55 cm or 65 cm.

It has a powerful vacuum motor that leaves the floor perfectly dry and safe to walk on immediately after cleaning. As a result the Versa can be used immediately before your store opens and during business operating hours without interfering with your customer journey. The Versa can be used to maintain hygiene standards throughout the day and during busy shopping times to ensure your customers have a clean and enjoyable shopping experience.

Moreover it reduces the requirement for expensive cleaning schedules conducted outside usual business hours.

In addition to these great features the Versa also includes the following as standard: the all new self-levelling splash guards that adapt automatically to brush wear and keep any splashes of water inside, preventing small solid residues or non-soluble dust particles from getting into the machine.

As an add on the Versa can also be equipped with the all new pressure monitoring system (PM) to control the power dispensed by the brush motors and ensure maximum cleaning results regardless of floor type.

 

It may also be equipped with the Comac Dosing System (CDS), which offers separate water and detergent management in order to regulate the amount of each needed to optimise cleaning operations even further.

The CDS allows the flow of detergent solution to be temporarily increased to tackle intensely dirty conditions, and then restored to normal levels when regular maintenance cleaning operations resume.

 

This feature in particular is highly sought after in retail environments such as supermarkets or warehouses where certain locations can become heavily soiled due to heavy traffic and or product spillages.
