Reduction In Water Usage Rubbermaid's microfibre mops

and cloths are very effective at removing dirt but with minimal quantities of water usage, meaning Pedro rarely has to use chemicals in day-to-day cleaning.

A Safer Environment A surface cleaned with a damp

microfibre mop pad dries in about 90 seconds, whereas a standard cotton string-style mop could take upwards of 10 minutes. This dramatically reduces the risk of accidents and also limits the time that floor space is unavailable to the public, which is vital in such a busy site.

Also, Rubbermaid’s secure cleaning carts contribute to increasing security throughout the airport; their lockable compartments are crucial when transporting hazardous cleaning chemicals around an air terminal.

St Pancras International

A Birdseye View St Pancras International has undergone a wealth of changes and today is the terminus for Britain’s only high speed railway lines. The station covers more than 8,000m2


and attracts more than a billion passengers each year making the maintenance of cleanliness and hygiene an upmost concern.

Cleaning personnel must cover all areas of the station from the ticketing offices to the platforms, as well as external areas. A particular challenge for cleaning personnel at the station is an absence of rubbish bins, for security reasons. Litter is therefore a consistent issue, meaning the station requires cleaning staff operating on a constant basis.

After winning the St Pancras International contract, Rentokil Initial found that it needed to update the cleaning regime in order to provide a more reliable and

efficient service. The new solution needed to be able to meet the various challenges involved while allowing for flexibility.

The Rubbermaid Solution Rentokil Initial saw Rubbermaid as the ideal company to provide a robust and reliable solution, and selected a wide range of Rubbermaid’s cleaning solutions. These include the Pulse Microfibre Floor Cleaning Systems and the Microfibre Carts, which have all helped to improve efficiency both in terms of time and labour.

The company’s main reason for choosing Rubbermaid was based on the quality of its products, in particular the aesthetically- pleasing Mircrofibre Carts, which allow Rentokil Initial to portray a clearly visible professional image. The carts enable water to be carried alongside equipment, further improving efficiency and practicality, and cleaning operatives can move throughout the station quickly, causing minimal disruption.

Finally a colour-coding system for the Microfibre wipes provided a simple yet effective method to reduce cross- contamination and was immediately adopted by the company. Rubbermaid’s brightly-coloured cleaning equipment provides Rentokil Initial with a noticeable presence within the station; allowing St Pancras International to recognise the constant level of work Rentokil Initial is providing.

The benefits 1

Professional Appeal One of Rentokil Initial’s main

concerns was that the outdated cleaning system was unprofessional; Rubbermaid provided a professional image, which portrayed a well-run, efficient cleaning company.


Improved Productivity The Microfibre Carts allow all

equipment to be carried within the same unit as well as providing additional space for water. This simple yet effective innovation aids efficiency, increasing the time available for the actual task.


A Safer Environment Previously, cleaners were using

cloths in the toilet areas, and using the same cloths to then do the hand rails in the main concourse, but Rubbermaid has eliminated this problem by introducing a colour- coded system, encouraging the use of a different colour per area.


Environmentally Aware The environment is becoming

an ever-growing concern for many companies and Rubbermaid provided an attractive proposition for Rentokil Initial. While the Microfibre Carts encourage sustainability, the Microfibre Floor Cleaning Systems remove dirt while using minimal amounts of water, as well as reducing the chemicals required for cleaning. This is not only important environmentally, but also as a safety precaution, ensuring potential trips are reduced.
