Floors scrubbers and Bacteria
One consideration that is worthy of mention in regards to commercial cleaning is the problem of contamination within manufacturing plants and how to reduce the effects, particularity when a lot of the problems are proven to be attributed to the floor.
The days of using a mop and bucket are gone. Research shows the a mop and bucket cleaning system is not desirable due to what is known as soil loading. Once the chemical becomes saturated with contaminants or soiling as it is known the chemical is no longer effective at killing bacteria and viruses.
We receive phone calls from concerned business owners in the manufacturing sector who are looking for a proven solution to cleaning their facilities to remove bacteria and viruses that could be harmful to the food they are producing. They are keen to learn how does a floor sweeper work in these environments.
This problem is often overlooked when a traditional floor scrubber and floor sweeper are used in these environments. They are traditionally used in commercial situations such as large warehouses and storage facilities. However when dealing with food manufacturing the problem of bacteria in the flooring substrate can be overlooked as a contamination source.
Introducing Our Clenco BAC® systems which has been specially developed for use in hospitals, homes for the elderly,kitchens and the food industry – in other words, every area that has stringent hygienic requirements. (HACCP).
noBAC® tanks are made of poly-ethylene enriched with an anti-bacterial, inorganic additive.
They are optionally available for columbus scrubber dryers B/BM 40, BM 60 and ARA 100.
How it works
The additive works from the inside out, and prevents microbial growth in micro-fissures, dead-spots and rough surfaces. Bacteria are pre-vented from multiplying and killed.
The noBAC® combination of active substances (polyethylene and additive) has been tested in relation to the bacteria strains Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus and methicillin-resistant Staphylococ-cus aureus (MRSA), as stipulated by ISO 22196. Laboratory results confirmed the efficiency of noBAC®: bacteria strains were reduced by 99.9%.
Better hygiene and disinfection.
Less work cleaning the machines, shorter service times for cleaning tanks, less expenditure on chemicals.
noBAC® also protects users against bacteria.
noBAC® does not have a use-by date – it works for the entire life-span of a tank.
The noBAC® combination of active substances is both food-safe and compatible with every chemical– there are no interactions. Environmental protection
The production, use and recycling of the tanks does not damage the environment at any point.
Non-hazardous to health.
