Torkmanufacturer SCA is giving out a limited number of ‘school packs’ designed to promote good hand hygiene practices among school chil- dren. Each pack will include a free-on-loan tablet device pre-loaded with a Tork app aimed at nursery and pri- mary school pupils. Ella’s HandWashing Adventure uses cartoon characters to teach children when they need to wash their hands, such as after playing outside and before eating. “Hand hygiene should be


learned at an early age so that good habits are in-


grained in children while they are still very young,” said SCA product and seg- mentmanager, Charlotte Branwhite. “By offering schools a tablet preloaded with our excellent app along with other supportmaterials, we are doing our bit to sup- port hand hygiene among children.” Posters, hand washing


guides, colouring sheets and crayons are included along- side the tablet in each Ella pack. Ella’s HandWashing Adventure, aimed at children aged three to seven, features Ella and her friends taking

KärcherAcademyCleaning Tips: Deep, hygienic cleaningwithout the effort


In food production, health- care, and just about any en- vironment where hygiene is an intrinsic part of the daily routine,most contract cleanersmust encourage their staff to use chemicals and old-fashionedmethods likemanual scrubbing and scraping. The results can look acceptable, but often costs for detergent and labour aremuch higher than necessary, and the time to complete a thorough deep clean can be very long, or even need to be done at night. Staff are also put at risk when using strong chemicals and fromhard manual cleaning. This is where a steam


generating vacuumcleaner comes into its own. Steam vacs combine the functions and features of wet and dry vacuumcleaners with steamcleaners, and can significantly improve clean- ing results, reduce cleaning time, and even eliminate the


every use, significantly pro- longing the life of thema- chine and reducing the risk of problems associated with fat and grease build-up in- side hoses andmoving parts. The detergent function is ideal for deep cleaning of large areas like floors, or where a shine or fragrance is preferred. Because steamvacuums


need for detergent. Pres- surised steameasily pene- trates dirt and, if needed, the mechanical action of the ac- cessory removes stubborn grease and limescale, and then the vacuumfunction ex- tracts the dirt automatically. A good steamvacuumwill


leave hard floors, stainless steel, chrome, kitchen appli- ances, industrial systems, and glass hygienically clean and instantly dry, restoring

original finishes and surface textures and reducing slip hazards on floor surfaces. Kärcher’s new SGV 8/5


steamvacuumcleaner en- ters themarket thismonth with some new innovations never before seen on a steamvac, including a self- clean function and detergent option. The unique self- cleaning systemautomati- cally removes deposits inside the steamvac itself after


often need to be used in con- fined areas like kitchens and bathrooms, the SGV features a small footprint, and a high handle and large wheels make it easy tomanoeuvre in tight spaces. A 4msuction hose and water/steamand vacuumcontrols built in to the handle oftenmean that themachine can be left out- side the roombeing cleaned. Operating an SGV steam


vacuumcleaner is intuitive, with no need for special training. The accessories are integrated directly in or on themachine - protected against loss and dirt, well or-


ganised, and always within reach. Ventilation slots in the cover allow the acces- sories to dry completely after use. The tanks for fresh water and detergent are readily accessible and easy to carry for convenient filling and emptying. The eco!efficiencymode


reduces power consumption to reduce operating costs, and at the same time the noise level is lowered to 64 dB(A). Thismakes SGV steamvacuumcleaners ideal for use in noise-sensi- tive areas such as retirement homes and care facilities, canteens, and hotels. The new SGV steamvac


can dramatically reduce cleaning time and improve results, and provide effort- less deep cleaning that your staff will love. To find outmore about how Kärcher canmake a difference to the safety of your business, visit www.karcher.co.uk
