WHAT’S NEW? Truvox ‘Cuts the Cord’

Cleaning teams can now ‘cut the cord’ and vacuum more quietly and productively following the arrival of the UK’s first cordless commercial vacuum cleaner.

The award-winning Valet Battery Upright (VBU) is a light yet powerful upright vacuum, designed for maximum productivity.

Powered by a lithium ion battery, the VBU provides more than 60 minutes’ continuous runtime. In the Cleaning Show 2017 Innovation Awards, the machine won in the carpet cleaning category.

Built to robust standards, the Valet Battery Upright weighs only 5kg. A convenient carry handle makes it easy to transport between cleaning jobs.

With the right equipment, it is easy to transform dull, stained vinyl, linoleum, tiles, concrete and resin systems into a clean, glossy, glass-like finish according to the Preparation Group.

Ultra-high-speed floor burnishers such as the Burnisher 430, produce speeds of 1500 rpm and have a flexible pad system that glides across the surface. These machines also emit low noise levels so do not disturb daily operations.

A drive plate is fitted onto the underside of the burnisher, onto which scrubbing or diamond cleaning pads are fitted. These pads can be used with or without water. When used dry, a dust extraction port ensures clean results into on-board dust bags. The environmentally-friendly option of just adding water ensures a hygienic, shiny, yet non-slip surface.

Diamond cleaning pads such as Storm Diamond Pads effectively refurbish and maintain surfaces and are available in different grades, the higher the number the finer the grit.

On the diamond pads, the coarsest 400 grade pad is for heavy duty floor cleaning and renovation


Ideal for daytime cleaning, the machine works quietly and safely around people and obstacles with no risk of trips or snagging – or interruptions to switch power sockets.

A battery level indicator ensures the user knows when their machine will need re-charging. A full re-charge takes no more than 2.5 hours. The battery delivers 312W of vacuum motor power and a 3,000rpm brush speed.

The vacuum floats evenly over all flooring surfaces thanks to a self- adjusting nozzle, while a squeegee improves cleaning results on hard floors. Performance and productivity also benefit from an edge cleaning feature and full suction when the VBU is laid flat to clean under beds and furniture.

on extremely soiled, stained, old floors. It is ideal on tiles, concrete and resin.

For general cleaning of heavily soiled floors; removing light scratches and staining from areas of heavy traffic, an 800 grade can be used, which leaves a light gloss finish. This can be used to refurbish vinyl.

Where floors are lightly soiled, a 1500 grade would be applied for general cleaning. This is the most popular pad for quick and effective maintenance and results in a gloss finish.

For areas of light traffic on a ‘sound’ floor, the finest 3000 grade can be used where the ultimate shine is desired and needs to be maintained.

The Preparation Group’s contracting division PPC, was

contracted to refurbish several hundred metres of vinyl at offices in Bristol with the aim of also leaving the customer with a solution for its ongoing maintenance. The heavily trafficked floor covering had light scratches, was dirty and dull.

The new Burnisher 430 machine was employed, fitted with Storm Diamond Pads. The first stage was using an 800 grade pad to remove the ingrained dirt, followed by the finer 1500 grade for a gloss finish just by using water. The Burnisher’s high-speed operation glazes as it glides across the surface, with the pads cleaning and shining the vinyl.

The finished result was a gloss finish that would repel dirt and be easier to clean and maintain.
