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.

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.

The end of a year is always a busy time with multiple deadlines and engagements.

However at year end it is important to take a time- out to review the latest trends, events, innovations that have shaped and will continue to shape the industry.



It is no surprise that in 2015 many of the cleaning industry’s trends and innovations were centred on creating more environmentally friendly products and equipment. Although green cleaning is not a recent phenomenon 2015 has been a year of rejuvenating interest in eco-friendly janitorial products and in particular cleaning machines.

This may be due to the latest efficiency ratings introduced which awards favourable equipment that is green.

This has seen a reduction in the use of harsh chemicals and excess water consumption whilst protecting the environment for the future.


Technology: paves the way for the future.

An increased focus on the environment has put a spotlight on the impact of older generation cleaning machines. This has prompted a while new trend of technological advances. This key trend has sparked a range of brands to introduce technological advances that reduce intensive labour whilst reducing energy usage, chemical and water consumption and creating sustainable cleaning solutions.

The development of increasingly advanced technology has truly produced product-efficiency, water-saving and waste-reduction solutions.  One example of a brand that has notably played host to technological advances and opening up new avenues is Comac, having introduced the “dosing system”. Furthermore this is evident with their plans to introduce a “non-stop cleaning” system. These advances will ensure that cleaning machines are more user friendly and less demanding when it comes to physical labour.


What can we look forward to in 2016?

An increasingly ‘technological’ future is in store for the cleaning industry, particularly within the floor cleaning segment.

As 2016 progresses you can be sure that the term “clean” will be a concept that is associated with technological advances, big data crunching efficiency monitoring with undoubtedly many more exciting innovations and cleaning solutions within the area of janitorial products and equipment.

The Truvox Multiwash has been named the ideal cleaning solution for Rolls-Royce Edinburgh. After a recent refurbishment of their retail showroom the management found it difficult to keep the new limestone floors clean.


Being a high traffic area the showroom floors would become soiled during the course of the day. The conventional mop and bucket struggled to remove the dirt that gathered in the floors grouting. As a Rolls-Royce showroom management and customers alike, have a very high expectation when it comes to the standard of cleanliness.


The solution? A Truvox Multiwash Scrubber Dryer:


The extra pressure exerted by the Multiwash contra-rotating cylindrical brushes makes it the best solution for the problem of grime in the grouting of tiled floors. The bristles safely but firmly brush floor tiles and grout lines to loosen and remove soils. Because these brushes are so effective, the Multiwash uses approximately 30 percent less water – which in turn means less chemical usage: Making the Multiwash a safe and easy cleaning solution for the environment and the cleaning operative.

Moreover the use of less water means quicker floor drying times, making the machine perfect for busy retail spaces or showrooms.


The Truvox Multiwash comes with a 4 litre solution tank and optional spray pump which allows the operator extra cleaning power in heavily soiled or difficult to clean areas.


The Truvox Multiwash is also one of the smallest and lightest scrubber dryers available on the market. Therefore the machine can be easily maneuvered to go down stairs which are frequently found in retail spaces.

Once again in 2015, compact made an impact with new projects and the introduction of new products. Most notable is the latest generation of scrubbing machines that have been developed to create an innovative machine that combines a scrubbing machine with a sweeping machine in a single solution.

However it has been a remarkable year all round for Comac let’s do a quick recap:


New selection, sleek new design

Comac has proposed two new walk-behind scrubbing machines: Antea and Versa. Devised with the aim of combining high performances with simple and flexible use, they are the result of a new project and because of this also have a totally new styling.


These two models will respond to the needs of a very important portion in the cleaning market: That is customers who require machines with a working width of between 45 and 65 cm, with solutions that increase reliability and improve the operator’s interaction with the machine.

To achieve this Comac have used a pressure die-cast aluminium frame and squeegee mount that guarantees sturdiness and solidity over time as well as easy handling due to their very lightweight material.

The instrument panels are designed to facilitate machine use, following a simple and therefore intuitive design.

Though these cleaning machines are similar in appearance and in characteristics, they differ in size – the Antea is the smaller of the two and should be used in small or tight spaced working environments, while Versa offers larger working widths.
The Antea can between 45 and 50cm with the option for the 50 cm model of a traction version. The Versa offers versions with 50, 55 and 65 cm working widths, and higher performances and operating ranges than Antea, since all the models are traction versions and have larger tanks, 50 litres for Versa and 35 for Antea.


Is history to repeat itself?
Remaining on the subject of scrubbing machines, but looking towards larger machines Comac has proposed an updated version of a historical model, which since it was launched has always continued to be one of the most popular. Have you guessed which machine we are referring to? That’s right it’s the Comac C130.

This all new design, in addition to the updating of the machine has made it possible to simplify all areas involving the operator, thus making it more comfortable and practical to use.

This beautiful design is enhanced further with touchscreen scrubbing functions meaning the ignition key, emergency button and working program selector around the driving wheel – for a more intuitive use without distractions during use. This new model brings the C130 into line with the latest Comac products created by the company to offer high performance and ease of use.

The future is almost here.

It seems that Comac has big plans for another project where they will set a great score – this model is to combine the performance of a scrubbing machine with that of a sweeping machine. It will be a single solution for large industrial areas developed in both a diesel or a bi-fuel version, offering a long operating range due to two large tanks and a capacious hopper. In this case too, much care has been devoted to the comfort of the operator, with a spacious cab and touchscreen controls. This machine has been prototyped with the CSL120 with a working width of 120 cm, it can sweep and scrub surfaces of over 10,000 sq.m. in just one phase.

In the creation of this new machine – Comac’s concern for the environment are evident from the new eco-proposal to reduce water consumption. It  proposes a water recycling system for its scrubbing machines to reduce consumption, optimising use. This system has been cleverly named “non-stop cleaning”. It comprises of three phases: in the first, the water is used normally and collected by vacuuming; in the second phase, the water is filtered and purified by the third stage. The water is therefore available for use again, completing the cycle.
