I try as much as possible to use phosphate free products and use as many natural products as possible and are always proactive in researching and testing these products. This is challenging to find suitable products without compromising the cleaning properties but always use products that meet the American environmental waste standards, as we are lead to believe that they are far higher than the current EU regulations in terms of water waste management.
We always dispose and insist of using drains for the disposal of used products down main drains that lead to sewers and not poured out in to gardens and streets, as we respect the laws governing this and the environment and we are aware of the damage used cleaning products can do to aquatic life in our rivers and water courses.
Disposal of containers and use of materials
All plastic containers and cardboard are sent to be recycled and we currently recycle 240 litres of waste every 2 weeks on average that would of potentially been landfilled. All cleaning cloths and stain removal cloths are recycled e cloths that have been used by ourselves and reused rather than landfilled, once they are worn out, they are also sent to be recycled to be used for the production of duvets or pillows.
All our machinery for cleaning meets the new EU regulations for reduced power consumption from vacuum cleaners, air movers and carpet cleaning machines and are replaced every two years or less regardless of condition to ensure safety to the customer, their premises, and staff as well as ensuring reliability of the machinery. We recently purchased air movers and dehumidifiers, that use far less electricity than an energy saving light bulb. As I am conscious of the amount of power consumption the customer has to supply.
We believe we are market leaders in the cleaning industry and hope that other cleaning business will follow our example as we really care for the environment.
