Ashgrove Specialist Products had their best show ever at The Cleaning Show in Birmingham,

with the Soluclean range of eco-friendly, multi-surface concentrated cleaning products proving to be a big hit!

Jon Horton, of Ashgrove commented: “The response, during and since the show, has exceeded my expectations. At a time where every penny has to count, the value of pre-dosed chemicals can be measured in monetary terms, and the overall cost savings that companies are seeing on the bottom line, when compared to the traditional format of cleaning chemicals, have only served to increase the interest and the success of the Soluclean range at the show.”

The comprehensive range covers just about every aspect of chemical cleaning for today’s demanding professional; saving money, time and waste without compromising on high standards of cleanliness and infection prevention.

Ashgrove are also pleased to announce that they have been appointed exclusive distributors, throughout the UK and Europe, of Flush1000, a patented and unique toilet hygiene cleaning system,

The system, which is a cost effective alternative to rimblocks and ready-to-use toilet cleaners, releases a specially formulated anti-bacterial and cleaning agent when needed to keep the entire toilet system clean and sanitised. The system eliminates toilet maintenance and leaves a protective film barrier on the bowl to prevent soil re-deposition.
