No - not a bad back; just making aqueous ozone
TC Cleaning machines is the exclusive UK importer for the TomCat range of floor cleaning equipment. Built in America on the banks of Lake Michigan, these machines are supplied by some 300 distributors in over 36 countries and we were impressed with the fact that the machine pictured here makes its own aqueous ozone as it goes along.
"Some companies' systems mean that the aqueous ozone is left in the machines overnight and of course as this has a shelf life, its benefits are lost," said the company's Dean Smith, pictured here, making some aqueous ozone.
"Our aqueous ozone is produced at the front of the machine as it cleans, meaning that the solution is always fresh and as well as the surface being cleaned, it cleans the machine itself. Often people forget that cleaning machines need cleaning themselves and this does the job as it works.
"A bonus is that there aren't any plastic bottles involved (apart from in the demonstration!) and after 40 minutes the aqueous ozone reverts to plain water again."
Along with disc and cylindrical machines, the company is showing the Edge system, which features TomCat's oscillating technology - a small revolution in hard floor cleaning.
Available throughout the range, oscillation can bring a chemical free solution to cleaning, stripping, polishing, grout line renovation, sanding and floor preparation - an incredible versatility that benefits both contract cleaning and facilities management sectors that typically look after multiple floor facilities.
The company's sales director Leon Glasspool told us that by lunchtime the team had received solid enquiries from representatives from four different prison facilities, who were looking for chemical-free floor stripping systems.
