Fit For Multi-Purpose


Vax Commercial is helping to clean up hospitals and healthcare premises with its new range of quick, hygienic and multi-functional cleaning products.


With so many high-risk areas for cross-contamination, the cleaning equipment used to maintain hospitals and healthcare facilities needs to be effective at leaving a range of different surfaces not only visibly clean, but hygienic too. Vax Commercial specialises in producing cleaning appliances and detergents that make it easy to thoroughly clean and sanitise almost any surface, including carpets, fl oors, windows, soft furnishings and fi ttings.


Designed for use on all types of surfaces, the VCST-01 multi- functional steam extraction cleaner sanitises and deodorises without the need for chemicals. It has a range of tools for every task and easily switches between steam cleaning and extracting liquids from carpets and hard fl oors. Or, for the quick cleaning and sterilising of worktops, tables and other washable surfaces, Vax Commercial’s new Antibacterial Surface Cleaner eliminates bacteria and is BS EN1276 approved. When used in conjunction, these products can help avoid cross-contamination and the spread of infection in hospitals, dentists, health clinics and other healthcare premises.


Infection-Free Floorcare In steam mode, the VCST-01 heats up in just 90 seconds to produce 4.5bar of continuous hot steam that cleans, sanitises and deodorises. “This multi-functional steam extraction cleaner provides a quick, easy and effective way of deep cleaning and sanitising a wide range of surfaces, including windows, sinks, taps and fl oors,” explained Vax Commercial’s Senior Product Manager, Brian Davis.


“This makes it a great choice for sanitising food preparation areas where strong chemicals should be avoided. It’s also good for cleaning

fl oors and other surfaces in waiting rooms and bathrooms, for example, where hygiene is a high priority. The steam fl ow can also be varied to suit the job in hand; to remove tough, stuck-on dirt, simply increase the fl ow for an intense blast of steam, or turn it down for more delicate cleaning tasks.”


With the fl oor cleaning tool attached, the VCST-01 leaves fl oors hygienic and sparkling clean, removing the excess water from the fl oor in the process. As it can be switched to extraction mode at the touch of a button, it can be used to suck up any accidental wet spills or fl oods. In extraction mode, it removes water quickly and effi ciently while removing the need to mop or wipe surfaces after cleaning too.


“The amount of dirt removed by the VCST-01 can be quite surprising,” continued Brian. “Customers who have used it on a surface that had already been cleaned with conventional wiping and detergent have been shocked by just how much extra dirt and grime the machine can extract.


“As the dirty water is extracted at the point of cleaning, it’s also much less messy and more hygienic than using a conventional mop and bucket, which carries a high risk of cross- contamination. Using steam to clean is more environmentally friendly and effi cient than a mop too, as it uses a lot less liquid to clean an area. In addition, the VCST-01 has a high- effi ciency water fi ltration system that cleans the exhaust air before it’s re-emitted into the room, helping to maintain the quality of the air while you’re working.”


Tough On Bacteria Launching in May 2014, Vax Commercial’s new Antibacterial


Surface Cleaner is a powerful, universal surface sanitiser that effectively kills bacteria, so you can be sure your surfaces are safe to use again after cleaning. “It’s perfect for spot cleaning worktops, tables, dining areas, and all sorts of other washable surfaces, leaving them brilliantly clean and hygienic,” explained Vax Commercial’s Product Manager, Laura Harley. Available in a 5l bottle or trigger spray, it easily cuts through tough oils, fat and stuck-on food residues.
