Wecoline’s new free floor pad app prevents expensive mistakes
I’m not suggesting that a good cleaning contractor will inadvertently run out of the best floor pad for the job, but thanks to Wecoline’s new free floor pad app, at least if that happens, it won’t result in lots of downtime or the possibility of the cleaner using the worst pad for the job and potentially damaging the floor being cleaned.
“The cleanest floor and the best result, it is a big challenge for every cleaner. Even more so as clients are cost-conscious and have high expectations about the level of cleanliness,” challenged the company’s Roel Geurts.
“To achieve the best results on the floor, not only are the best materials required, but knowledge on how to use them too. With more than 30 different floor pads to choose from, it is important to be able to pick the best one for the job in hand.
“Which pad is most suitable for which type of floor, which type of machine or which type of dirt? The answer to all these questions is now available thanks to the free Wecoline floor pad app. It is an app that, step-by-step, maps out the ‘floor problem’ and advises on which pad to use to beat this problem. The app also gives information on the correct work method, using short films.
“We are not surprised to hear about situations where a cleaner has used the wrong pad, causing damage to the floor or just not getting it clean.
“For example, we were asked recently why it was that a marble floor had lost its gloss after cleaning it with a black pad….. Using the right pad saves time and improves the result. Also, cleaning can be done less often. Finding out which pad to use is really worth the effort.
“To be able to give good advice 24/7, Wecoline has developed the floor pad app. After answering just four simple questions, (floor surface, degree of dirt, type of machine being used, expected result) the user receives professional advice, supported by short films about the correct use of the pad on the floor. And if the user needs more information still, he or she can contact Wecoline directly by e-mail or telephone by a simple push on one of the app’s buttons.”
The app can work offline so is very fast. We were really impressed by the option of finding out the second best pad to use, should the first choice not be available.
We were also impressed upon examining what is claimed to be the world’s first fully biodegradable floor pad.
