Cleanzine - the original Cleaning & Hygiene industry e-news

Read by industry professionals in 163 countries worldwide!
 

Further to last week’s leader, I’m delighted to report that Cinderella IS indeed going to be returning to the ball!

In case you missed last week’s issue, I wrote that a meeting was being held in London that day with the purpose of bringing back into proper existence the Cleaning & Support Services Association, which for a while last year, was merged with other associations to form the Building Futures Group. The CSSA withdrew partly because it was felt that the BFG’s cleaning side (cleaning being the ‘Cinderella’ of any business that isn’t directly about cleaning) was being neglected – a sentiment I echoed in my leader, as I expressed my dismay at how quiet things seemed to have gone, with no official body seemingly interested in fighting the industry’s corner when it was attacked in the mainstream press.

Ex-CSSA chairman Doug Cooke, CEO of Principle Cleaning Services, told me that around 40 people attended the meeting – a good turnout when one considers the inevitable diary clashes and how busy life gets in the lead-up to Christmas! He said that the presentation was very well received by the attendees – which included contractors large and small, as well as suppliers – and that the consensus was: “We cannot afford NOT to have a CSSA!”

Doug – who is once again taking on the Chair of the Association, said: “There’s a real gap in the market for contract cleaners at all levels to be represented, and I’m confident that firms will see the benefits of becoming members.

“The new CSSA will focus solely on the contract cleaning sector. Members will have unique opportunities to network, and be one step ahead when important innovations and developments come along.”

Doug also explained that membership costs have been restructured to make them more attractive and that there will more support for smaller businesses as well as more support for the contractors in general, than in the old days.

John Findlater – another ex-CSSA chairman who’s also been very much involved in resurrecting the CSSA, added: “Membership is the customer’s warranty that a contractor is ethical, professional and provides good value for money.”

I can understand John’s sentiment completely, for hiring a company that’s a member of a reputable association inspires confidence, doesn’t it?

The Association is launching on 1st January with the official launch on 1st February.

To find out more, contact John Findlater on: E: findlaters@btinternet.com

Soapbox: flawed vacuum cleaner testing should be re-examined

* Justin-Binks.jpgJustin Binks, managing director, Sebo UK, writes...

EU labelling requirements for vacuum cleaners have already been much debated - but, in the wake of the Volkswagen emissions scandal, it is worth nothing that vacuum cleaner manufacturers self-test and self-validate so it is all too easy for results to be fudged and skewed to present products in an advantageous light.

Added to this, the tests themselves are unrepresentative of real world cleaning scenarios so magnify the confusion in the market place. Quite simply, the whole process is somewhat unbelievable and pointless.

Latex in carpets and rugs: the issues, by Derek Bolton

* NCCA-carpet-rippling.jpgIt is common for people to try and blame the cleaners when fixtures and fittings change over time, so it pays to know what it is you are cleaning, before starting the job, so you can address any potential issues. Here, Derek Bolton, ex-president and technical director and now honorary member of the National Carpet Cleaners Association, shares his expertise on the use of Latex in carpets and rugs, and the problems it can cause for those tasked with cleaning it...

"Latex is an adhesive material that is applied during the manufacturing process of carpets and rugs. It has several purposes, such as anchoring the pile tufts into the backing materials in woven carpets and fixing the secondary backing to the primary backing in tufted carpets.

Council to cut 45 street cleaning and open spaces maintenance jobs in bid to save £1.395m

* Dundee-graffiti.jpgScotland's Dundee Council, has announced that it is to cut 45 jobs in its street cleaning and open spaces maintenance operation in a bid to save £1.395 million of the £28m it has to shave from its budget over the next two years.

The council hopes that all the proposed job losses can be achieved through voluntary early retirement and voluntary redundancy over the next three years and that making its street cleaning operation more efficient will allow savings to be made without sacrificing cleaning quality. Currently, some city streets can be swept three times a day but the council now wants to switch focus to how clean streets are rather than how often they are swept.
