Vileda Professional's clean sweep at Manchester Arndale
Vileda Professional, provider of technologically advanced cleaning solutions, is proud to be the cleaning product supplier of choice for the UK's largest inner-city shopping centre, Manchester Arndale. As a flagship site for the owners of a portfolio of shopping malls across the UK, Manchester Arndale want to use the very best produacts on its site to maintain a clean environment, which reinforces a quality image to ensure shoppers return again and again.
Shirley Harrald, National Account Manager at Vileda Professional comments: "I have been working closely with the Manchester Arndale team for several months to ensure we are providing the very best cleaning solutions for them. In particular they were thrilled that we were able to provide the perfect solution to remove stubborn marks on rough, uneven flooring that the previous traditional mopping system was unable to tackle."
A wide range of Vileda Professional products are used to keep the busy shopping centre clean and safe for the many consumers passing through its doors every day. Amongst the products used is the company's popular VoleoFlex trolley, which is compact and easy to manoeuvre, designed to transport cleaning utensils, waste collection, and the UltraSpeed 25 litre Microfibre mopping system around the mall. In smaller areas the UltraSpeed Mini Microfibre mopping system is used and also facilitates the cleaning of safety floors with its Safe Mop option.
Manchester Arndale also benefits from hygienic above-the-floor cleaning with Vileda Professional's cloths, including Evolon non-woven microfibre, which cleans deep into the surface to remove grease, dirt and bacteria. Used with GP Extra non-woven cloth, containing silver ions that inhibit the growth of bacteria on the cloth, they provide superior hygienic protection.
Janet Flanagan, Cleaning Manager at Manchester Arndale says: "It is important for us to work with products that not only effectively clean all areas of the shopping centre, but which are also easy for our cleaning team to use. Our experience of working with the Vileda Professional products has been excellent, and the representatives are always there to help us with training or select new products to ensure we're using the most up-to-date cleaning solutions."
