Making cleaning a profession to be proud of

Maureen Marden, Master of the Worshipful Company of Environmental Cleaners, on the importance that cleaning plays in our lives.

Imagine a world with no cleaners. Not a pleasant thought is it? Ensuring a clean and hygienic environment, at home, at work, or at school, both indoors and outdoors, is essential to us all in a number of ways. Cleaning keeps us healthy, by banishing bacteria and dust, and also contributes to our wider well-being. Workers will be more productive, students will have better learning outcomes, and members of the public will feel safer and happier if their surroundings are clean and well-maintained.Continue reading

Lighting the way with technology breakthrough

commercial-cleaners-swanseaBusy Cleaning, the Swansea-based commercial cleaning company has become the first in Wales to adopt UV light technology. Busy Cleaning has reinforced its position as industry leader by combining 30 years of experience with the introduction of innovative products from Klenitise Ltd, including the Revealite UV torch.

The Revealite torch has been designed for the real time detection of hazardous surface residues that would be otherwise invisible to the human eye. Surface residues produce fluorescence under the torch’s UV light so that improper cleaning is highlighted. The torch will also be used in conjunction with Klenitise’s Audit Marker, which is used to evaluate the thoroughness of cleaning. The Revealite and Audit products will form a vital part of Busy Cleaning’s staff assessment and training programme and will drive continuous improvement in cleaning performance.Continue reading
