Just as we were starting to get back into the routine of things after Christmas, the cleaning industry was this month hit with the shock news about the closure of the Building Futures Group.


The organisation, which was established back in 2013 and had, for all intents and purposes been running smoothly, made the unexpected announcement in mid- January and has so far not offered much in the way of an explanation.


This has caused confusion within the industry with some demanding answers. You can read a full statement from the Building Futures Group, and a response from the British Cleaning Council in the News section of this, our February issue.


Elsewhere, Kärcher explain to us why councils on a budget should look for all-in- one machines to tackle all of their street cleaning needs in our Street Cleaning & Graffiti Removal section, and we introduce two brand new feature sections in the shape of Disposables and Pest Control, with some great features from the likes of Tork, Rentokil, SCS and Northwood.
