Touchless technology cleans wet areas, carpet and upholstery
Prochem Europe is showcasing its new touchless cleaning technology for washrooms and other wet areas that also can be used on carpet and upholstery.
The Chessington-based company's CR2 Multi-Surface is a versatile 'touch-free' restoration system that not only does away with the need for mops and brushes, but - with the addition of a carpet wand or upholstery tool - can also be used for carpet and upholstery cleaning.
The CR2 combines a pressure washer with a powerful vacuum system for areas where traditional methods of cleaning like mopping are ineffective and it works by breaking down loose dirt and grime from porous surfaces and hard-to-reach areas so that they can be effectively removed using the squeegee and vacuum system.
The introduction of the CR2 comes on the back of 12 months test-marketing at Prochem Europe to ascertain its potential for the UK market.
"We showcased it at the last cleaning show here in the UK and the response was unequivocally positive," said sales manager, Phil Jones:
"Like all the best solutions, this system embodies a relatively simple technology that enables the cleaning of toilets, urinals, and restroom floors without the user getting his or her hands dirty.
"There's no need even for chemical mixing as the solutions container fits to the machine case for automatic dosing during operation."
As well as practical, the CR2 meets growing demand for hygiene technology products, in particular for application in the healthcare, food preparation and hospitality sectors.
"These user sectors are strongly driven by legislation and demand for ever-higher standards of cleanliness, hygiene, health & safety and in turn, reductions in resource with a greater adoption of recycling," said Phil, who explained that the machine has a powerful 500 psi pump with built-in auto chemical feed system for cleaning and pressure washing and offers an optional Heat 'n' Run system to further boost cleaning performance.
A three-stage vacuum system facilitates swift and effective water and soil recovery. A built-in wand and hose caddy system makes the CR2 easy to transport with all necessary tools required to site. A wide range of optional carpet and upholstery cleaning accessories further broadens its application to multi-surface restoration, as and when required.
Prochem Europe, a privately owned company founded in 1974, manufactures an extensive range of specially developed carpet, fabric, floor and hard surface cleaning chemicals, which are supplied through a network of authorised distributors, together with a range of carpet and upholstery cleaning machines and accessories.
Prochem's National Training Academy backs this range with fully comprehensive training courses in the correct operation and use of both the equipment and chemical products at its Chessington headquarters. Prochem is registered to ISO 9001:2008 and compliant with the latest EC regulations for the supply of chemicals, as well as CE approval for equipment.
ISO 14001:2004 accreditation was granted in March 2015 and the company was granted a Royal Warrant of Appointment to Her Majesty The Queen for the supply of carpet cleaning products, in January 2012.
