New technology pays off on the workshop floor
Specialist cleaning business S2C is reaping the rewards after investing four years developing what it believes is an industry-changing product to clean floor tiles.
Company founder and Managing Director, Steve Cleaver says the product that he has developed is proven to not only remove excessive staining and contamination but to also re-establish the tile's original slip rating.
The company was approached by a Bentley dealership in 2010 after the dealership had tried everything to remove oil and grease from its workshop floor. Working with a chemist, Steve developed a cleaning solution able to dissolve contamination without damaging the floor surface.
S2C Operations Manager, Jane Robinson, explains: "We approached other car dealerships across the UK and used our product on a tester patch with extraordinary results. Our patch was often alongside several others created by companies that had tried and been unsuccessful, in achieving the results we accomplished.
"It is simply not cost-effective to work with many low-priced alternatives that don't work."
To ensure its results are maintained, S2C prides itself on its aftercare programme. This includes training facilities managers and cleaning operatives on how to preserve the flooring post-treatment. The company also offers future deep cleans at a reduced cost so contamination levels are manageable in the future.
