These new Cleaning Services products, known as Fresh Clean are completely dried – so the user adds the required amount of water for each clean and gets to it. Fresh Clean are made in a factory only two miles from the staging area for delivery all over Great Britain; and they have hardly any packaging at all, compared to the cleaning chemicals that would do an equivalent amount of useful work.
With one five kilogram box making 2,500 trigger spray refills (that’s roughly 1,250 litres, or enough to keep a busy pub going for a year) of cleaning solution, the new commercial cleaning products require an amount of packaging, in terms of the length and quality of service they give, that is virtually nonexistent. This, of course, drives the price down very nicely. Given that a premises can do almost a year’s worth of cleaning using a single cardboard box (which can of course be recycled) and a couple of refillable spray bottles, the company actually making the cleaning product doesn’t need to charge very much at all in order to make its profit. That means two massive savings for every company switching to the new commercial cleaning products: one monetary and one for the environment.
Saving the environment, mind, is a pretty cash rich occupation these days too. Companies that can prove they are reducing their carbon emissions all round by a certain percentage may be entitled to tax breaks; and companies that can prove an engagement in recycling may get the same kind of consideration too. So any company using these new cleaning products to help save the environment is going to get some pretty big benefits, cash wise, out of the equation: while any company using said Office Cleaning Services products to save money will end up being very kind to the environment by default.
Of course none of this would matter at all if the products in question did not clean as well as their less packaging savvy predecessors. They do. Even major train stations have switched to the new cleaning products without further ado, once they have tried them out – and if a product can keep a busy terminal concourse clean then it can keep practically anything clean. The performance of the new commercial cleaning products is as good as their lack of packaging and low cost.
In an age where miracles have all but run out, it is nice to see something so unassuming stepping up and taking the crowns for innovation, environmental consideration and genuine cleaning power.
