Clean Sweep joins the Circus

When the world famous Cirque Du Soleil came to the Trafford Centre the race was on to find a sweeper before the important dress rehearsal evening.

Clean Sweep UK received a hire request at 4pm, urgently requiring an industrial sweeper by 10am the next morning.

A diesel powered Nilfisk RS501 road sweeper was delivered by 9.30am the following day. The compact road sweeper was ideal for the harder to access areas of the site and the vacuumated twin brush action coped well with larger items of litter.

The 300 bar onboard pressure washer was used to clean down litter bins and other hard surfaces.

Within hours the site was pristine and ready for the big opening.

Flexible short and long term hire agreements are offered from the Clean Sweep UK team. A fixed delivery charge applies irrespective of site location within the UK. Orders placed before 10am will be delivered the next day or before if possible. Any service calls placed before 3pm will receive an engineering visit on the next working day.

Business services key

to economic growth

The business services sector, including facilities management (FM) and cleaning, has been highlighted by the government as an emerging “key sector” for future economic growth.

The first National Strategic Skills Audit, commissioned by the government and published by the UK Commission for Employment and Skills, claims the industry is expected to account for more than one third of total jobs growth over the next few years.

The new report says skills shortages may be exacerbated by future growth in the business services industry. Asset Skills is addressing these issues through the introduction of a Virtual Skills Academy for Business Services, which will help deliver vocational qualifications in FM and cleaning.

The report also ranked business services second highest in terms of economic significance yet shows a need for greater investment in skills and training to keep up with its expected growth.

CHSA: “If a price looks too

good to be true, it probably is!”

Managers, individuals and organizations responsible for purchasing washroom and workplace paper disposables should insist that products are supplied with dimensions clearly marked on the packaging to reduce the risk of being sold short measure, according to the Cleaning and Hygiene Suppliers Association (CHSA).

Over the past eighteen months, the CHSA have campaigned relentlessly to raise awareness of the pitfalls of purchasing unmarked product. Remarkable as it may seem, products can be manufactured to a diameter rather than length which has unfortunately allowed some suppliers to pass the products off as being more than they really are.

According to Graham Fletcher, Secretary of CHSA: “If you are buying products at prices which seem too good to be true, they probably are.

The best security for any individual or organization to reduce the risk of receiving short measure products is to ensure dimensions are marked on pack and look out for the CHSA Manufacturers Accreditation Scheme logo.”

Should you suspect any of your products of being short in measure then please contact CHSA.
