Rubbermaid Hygen Clean Water System awarded BICSc Accreditation
Everyone on the Rubbermaid Commercial Products stand, was delighted that the company's Hygen Clean Water System had been awarded a Cleaning System Standards Certificate of Accreditation from the British Institute of Cleaning Science.
The BICSc accreditation scheme is designed to provide the industry with an independent assurance of field-tested excellence. The Hygen system was submitted to the Institute and thorough trials were performed to test the reliability, efficiency and safety of the system, in its intended environment.
The resulting Field Trials Outcome Report verified that the Hygen system is a faster, cleaner and more cost-effective solution for clean floors than a conventional cotton mop and bucket.
Stan Atkins, chief executive officer at BICSc, said: "Part of our mission at the Institute is to protect the safety of the built environment by ensuring that equipment and systems used for cleaning are safe and effective for the users, and for the occupants of the buildings being cleaned.
"Our accreditation scheme was introduced to recognise systems that offer true innovation to the cleaning industry, something that in my opinion as an industry veteran, is an ever-more exclusive category."
The award-winning Hygen system features an integrated water filter that generates cleaner water, cleaner mops and cleaner floors.
