Welcome to the
Cleanzine - the original Cleaning & Hygiene industry e-news
Read by industry professionals in 148 countries worldwide!
Not long after I first joined the cleaning industry back in the early nineties, I attended my first National Carpet Cleaners Association conference. I can remember feeling inspired when the British Cleaning Council’s marketing and public relations guru, Jay Grenby, spoke about the work that was being done to make the NCCA logo the carpet cleaning equivalent of the Corgi (now Gas Safe) registration that every gas fitter has to have before carrying out any work – otherwise he or she is breaking the law.
Of course with customers generally wanting to buy cheap rather than pay a bit more for a top quality job, Jay had a difficult task ahead of her and the baton for NCCA recognition has been passed to various people over the ensuing years. And although we’re not quite there yet, we have seen quite a significant result this week: the NCCA tie in with TrustMark. You can read more about it below.
If you’re unfamiliar with TrustMark, this really is something for the NCCA to celebrate. John and I produce an e-zine – similar to Cleanzine – for the kitchens, bathrooms and bedrooms industry and it is widely acknowledged amongst our peers that however wonderful (and expensive!) a newly fitted kitchen, bathroom or bedroom might be, it’s only going to be as good as the fitter that installed it. Use a dodgy tradesperson and the furniture and appliances will be tarred with the same brush, even if it’s 100% the tradesperson’s fault that things haven’t worked out.
I believe that the NCCA, by becoming involved with the TrustMark scheme, has achieved something of a coup. I also wonder, how long it’s going to take before other sectors of the UK cleaning industry decide to follow suit.

This Week's News
Warm air hand dryer can incorporate anti-mosquito technology
Veltia has launched a new 'Anti-mosquito accessory' for its warm air hand dryers, which repels insects while also releasing a pleasant fragrance that adds to the ZeroSmell component of the company's ZeroSmell Hand Dryer V7 dryers.
The Anti-mosquito accessory is an innovative, 100% natural product that uses natural extract of Citronella of Java in a patented polymerisation process based on years of research. It allows the active component to be released steadily and consistently, thus giving it a longer life.
Prevent Legionnaires this Summer
June marks the anniversary of the widespread Legionnaires' outbreak which affected 50 people throughout Edinburgh hospitals in 2012.
To prevent a disaster of this nature happening again, Ecex, sole UK distributor of Air Intake Screens, (as manufactured by Air Solutions Company USA) which can help minimise the risk of legionnaires, urges those responsible for cooling towers and other HVAC equipment, to take appropriate steps in order to stop this potentially fatal disease in its tracks.
When nature calls, Fresh Dab Toilet Paper Gel answers
Sometimes toilet tissue just isn't enough, but the biggest problem with bathroom wipes, (also known as personal, baby, body or wet wipes) is that they are designed not to degrade when exposed to water as they are pre-moistened.
Even wipes marketed as 'flushable' can take too long to break down and damage sewage systems. There have been more stories in the news recently about wipes clogging everything from home plumbing to sewer pipes in the streets to waste water treatment facilities, so a solution to the problem is clearly needed.

RCM performs at Urban Renewal day in Formigine
Earlier this month, in the Italian town of Formigine, RCM introduced its 'urban microcleaning' products and showed them off to assembled members of the Environment Department to their best advantage - using them to clean up the main square.
The spectators showed great interest in the electrical tricycles/cleaning trolleys which, as our picture shows, provide a fast, simple, economical and environmentally friendly way for the cleaner to get from one job to the next in the busy town centre, with the equipment he or she needs to complete the task.
Aztec machines making their debut at Clean NZ
Well established and respected in the US, Aztec burnishing and stripping equipment made its debut in the New Zealand marketplace at Clean NZ 2014. Distributor Lesa Systems points out that not only are Aztec machines rugged and high quality, they are also available at extremely affordable prices.
"Combining the Aztec LowRider Burnisher, with its extremely efficiently bagged dust control, with ETC Gorilla Diamond pads, makes for unequalled productivity and long life performance," states Lesa.
A major coup for the NCCA
The National Carpet Cleaners Association has achieved scheme operator status for TrustMark, the Government-endorsed quality mark for expert tradesmen, which means their NCCA members can now apply for TrustMark status so they can be found by businesses and homeowners using the TrustMark postcode search facility.
TrustMark users can be confident that the cleaning care and management of their premises and homes will be carried out by high quality professionals working to government endorsed standards.

Nothing static about Osprey!
Anglo-German Steam cleaning machine and pressure washer manufacturer OspreyFrank had an impressive line up of 'bit kit' machines on its stand, including the latest version of a conveyor belt cleaner which now operates without any discernible amount of steam being emitted from the cleaning head. This is thanks to an improved design which contains more of the steam and a much more powerful vacuum which leaves the moving conveyor belt both clean and dry.
Managing Director Thomas Stuecken also showed us their new static steam generating model and some of the impressive technology that governs it.
